2010 VW MK6 GTI Night Drive
LEARNING TO DRIVE A STICK I took a spin around the block in my stock 2010
GTI. Fully broken in (3 weeks old and 2,000 miles) and she drives great.
I'm going to do some Exhaust work this
weekend, so I wanted to establish a sound baseline.
the stock Exhaust on my VW MkV GTI is
furious, only you have to practically put a mic inside it to hear.
additionally I threw a mic under the hood to hear the incredible sound of
the turbo and blow off valve, along with
I have to admit the speed I achieved at points while driving on this
stretch of road is surprising, but due to the GTI's incredible suspension
and aerodynamic tuning it was just another day in the office. Its tendency
to to understeer during acceleration is a welcome safety net, while some
lift-off oversteer helps the car to rotate around tight corners. at the
same time, it kept its composure 100% of the time even when the road was
less than optimal. what a great ride, and great fun. the only thing I'd
like to change about the car however is the brakes. they're as mushy and
mushy can be, and because of this they do not inspire confidence. maybe
some stainless steel brake lines would help, but there's no question that
my first modifications will be the APR ecu, upgraded brakes, and racing
all I have to do now is find the money to go racing so I can get off public
roads and build a proper race car. in the mean time, gran turismo will
download my gran turismo tuning guide for the iPhone on the iTunes Store.
also to note of the numerous times I shifted during this film, not one was
missed!!! no grinding here, though my clutch smelled like it didn't like it
when I used it to control wheel spin during one of the launches. still, the
car is very tight and smooth for having 30,000 miles on the odometer. I
don't ever want to get rid of it. and these roads are obviously tremendous,
they're the most curvaceous and undulating road I have ever driven. if only
I could get them to pave them, close them down temporarily and establish a
racing/rally circuit, I would be in heaven.

Redline One-Year Review: 2010 Volkswagen GTI 6-speed
Help us grow so we can bring you more videos! Like us on Facebook @
http://www.Facebook.com/2Redline For years, Volkswagen's GTI seemed to sit
on an un-touchable perch atop most of its direct rivals. Although it lacked
the raw power figures for bragging rights, no other competitor could touch
the VW for its unbeatable combination of sporty performance and everyday
livability. With strong entries from Ford, Honda, Subaru, and Mazda does
the GTI still have what it takes to be considered a class leader? Let's

GTI MKVI Driving - Interior
When I was thinking of buying the 2010 MKVI GTI there weren't many videos
showing the interior or the sound of the car while in motion so I decided
to test my new Flip Ultra HD camera by making such a video. I mounted it to
my headrest using a Gorillapod tripod.
In the video you will see me changing from Drive to Manual (Triptronic) and
can see the current gear indicated in the display in between the
Speedometer and Tachometer. This camera is nice but does not seem to pick
up the real sound of the car at low RPM's (a sort of rumbling sound that I
enjoy and makes the GTI sound powerful).
I also have a Beltronics V955 radar detector so at a certain point in the
video you will hear it go off (and you can see the cord coming up from the
Most of the times that I change lanes, I use the GTI's "quick tap" turn
signal which causes the indicator light to blink 3 times. This allows you
to tap the stalk, switch lanes, and not have to worry about having to bring
the stalk back down. I find myself using my turn signals A LOT more often
because of this nice feature.
Towards the end I also switch the information that is displayed using the
buttons on the right part of the steering wheel. I change it from Travel
Time to Speed.
2011 GTI - Driving around NoVA
Driving to work in my new 2011 GTI. I noticed from the camera's viewing
angle, it looks like I'm a lot closer to the cars in front of me than I
really am. I'll find a new mount for my phone or my camera soon enough.
Not pushing it too hard right now, only have 2500 miles on it.
Plenty of vids to come. I plan on going stage 2 with CAI and downpipe in
about a year or so.

most affordable cars on the road.
