In 1976 Volkswagen shoehorned an up-rated engine into its economic and practical Golf, and the hot-hatch was born. The resulting Golf GTI (Grand Tourer Injection) sacrificed none of the regular Golf’s practicality, while adding a significant performance improvement in an “everyday” package. Other manufacturers followed in the same footsteps, but the iconic Volkswagen GTI was always the best hot-hatch—and forty years later it still is! In 2015 Volkswagen released the Mk7 GTI. Against the backdrop of the heavy, numb, and bloated modern car the GTI has never been more relevant. Few modern cars do everything as well as the GTI does. It is well appointed, powerful, lightweight, nimble, and spirited, yet sacrifices none of the practicality needed in a daily driver. It is one of the few cars that can satisfy the performance desires of the enthusiast while having the space and practicality required for daily duty. The best Mk7 GTIs have the Performance Package, which got you a horsepower bump to 220, a top speed of 155 miles per hour, a torque-vectoring limited-slip differential, and larger 13.4-inch front and 12.4-inch rear vented disc brakes. The biggest game-changer of the Performance Pack is the limited-slip front differential technology called VAQ (Vorderachsquersperre: front axle crossbar), which practically eliminates torque-steer and allows usable traction in inclement weather on both the street and the track. Honoring the high standard set by the GTIs that came before it, there are few modern cars that offer a proper driving experience as pure as the Mk7 Volkswagen GTI.

Summary

This 2016 GTI SE Performance Pack takes an already excellent platform and makes it even better. It is spec’d in Pure White over Titan Black leather with the Performance Pack and the Lighting Package’s adaptive bi-xenon HID headlights. The original owner upgraded the suspension with Bilstein B16 PSS10 adjustable dampening coilovers, the front brakes with a massive Stoptech ST60 kit, and added Neuspeed RSe10 nineteen-inch wheels wearing Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires. Inside a GTI Clubsport alcantara steering wheel and shift boot, LED interior lighting, and a European automatic headlight switch have all been added. This powers European Magneti Marelli LED taillights with rear fog lights, which look fantastic. It has never been tuned, nor had any engine modifcations. The factory warranty is intact until May of 2019 or 36,000 miles. It has always been dealer serviced and treated to regular oil changes. All records and receipts are included in a three-ring binder. The original owner is a meticuous and mature enthusiast, who never abused it or treated it poorly. He was only willing to give it up in trade for an extremely low-mileage BMW E46 M3 that I found for him. The condition is virtually perfect, with no notable or glaring cosmetic or mechanical defects. It is a Colorado car, that comes with a clean Carfax, two key FOBs, all owners manuals, the original window sticker, the roadside assistance package, two sets of floor mats, and the rear trunk liner.
