The GTI is the most refined of hot hatches but underpower also IMHO and the new 250 HP Golf will be 30K which is CRAZY and why I will stay with the WRX/STi's.
Actually the mk6 gti is underrated from the factory. Most are putting about 200 at the wheels. The torques curve on the gti is long and flat and comes real early in the rpms. I never once felt the gti could use more power, in fact at times the torque was annoyance.
