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 find out...

Top 5 Sporty Cars reviewed, driven and tested
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) What's the best sporty car that you can buy today? We at The fast Lane Car are lucky to drive a different car every week so we've had the chance to drive many (if not most) of the best sporty cars on the market. Here are the top 5 sporty cars that we've driven in 2011.





GTI FURY
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 the direct-injection. 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 tires. 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 suffice. 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. filmed with a canon hv30 with add-on audio by sennheiser lav mics into a juicedlink 4 track phantom powered mixer.





2011 Golf GTI

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.

2015 Volkswagen Golf 7 R (300hp) - DRIVE & SOUND (1080p)
The full Country road and Autobahn Drive & Sound with the all new 2014/2015 VW Golf 7 R powered by a strong 2.0 TSI (300hp, 380Nm) and the well know 6-speed DSG transmission. Overall I really liked driving this car as it feels very special even compared to some much more expensive cars that I have recently tested. The performance is astonishing, the sound is very good for a 4-cylinder engine (inside AND outside) and from a practical perspective there is no reason this car wouldn't fit in anybody's household. Especially the wide range of usable power stands out compared to the A 45 AMG or even the BMW M135i. Although the BMW has more torque at even lower revs it just does not feel as strong from a subjective perspective, objectively M135i and A 45 AMG are of course a bit quicker! The inside sound generator is very present in "RACE" mode but I would consider this as a GOOD thing, cause it sounds amazing and powerful. Also the suspension in my eyes is an almost perfect compromise between race track performance and lots of comfort for long Autobahn trips. I drove this car around 900 km on one weekend and was simply amazed by how comfortable (on 19 inch pretoria) and fuel efficient (minimum was 7.5 l/100 km!!!) you can get along with this R. But what do you think? Please LIKE / COMMENT & SUBSCRIBE! Cheers!





How to drive stick (for beginners)
READ ALL CAPTIONS IN THE VIDEO IN CASE I MISSED A FEW THINGS AS WELL AS THE DESCRIPTION CAR: 2009 VW GTI I was taught to drive manual in my friend's 2004 Mustang GT about 9 months ago so you could say I've been driving stick for about 8 months. Yes this is my car. No you can't drive it. There's a good chance that you'll get the pedals mixed up the first few times you drive stick...don't worry it's all about muscle memory, remember?





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 12V plug). 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.

My New 2012 Volkswagen GTI
In this video, we take a look at my 2012 Volkswagen GTI.





GTI - 2011, MKVI, Autobahn Edition
Update 10/05/2011: A person asked me how I felt about my GTI now that I'm coming up to a full year of ownership. The following was my response to the question. You are correct, I'm coming up on my first year of ownership of my GTI and I'd be happy to give you my impressions to this point. I've put approximately 12.5k miles on the car and I've driven it in rain, snow, excruciating Summer heat, several rounds of autocross and everything in between. In a nutshell, I still love this car. First and foremost, I've had zero mechanical problems with my GTI. Not even the tiniest of issues to report. Hence, I can only conclude from my experience that the build quality of my GTI is absolutely top notch. I took the car in for a gratis 6k inspection and 10k servicing and this went without a hitch. There was a factory software recall which was applied by the dealer to my GTI which fixed a problem with the keyless entry system but I'd never experienced the rectified problem in the first place. My GTI appears to drive today with the same exhilarating quickness as it did the day I took delivery. The car still handles with a sublime tightness without a hint of body roll but it also still has the same relatively stiff suspension to remind you when going over bumps and potholes too. The turbo still has the same explosive power and I've made very good use of it when driving autocross. The car really behaves very differently with the traction control disabled (the throttle response in particular gets much quicker) and I've had a great deal of fun racing around the cones during competitive events. The GTI is made to be driven aggressively and this is when the car really shines. I put Winter wheels (16" alloys with snow tires) on the car last year and I'll do the same again this year. With the snow tires, the GTI handles more or less like any other front wheel drive car except for the fact that you have to attenuate the power a little more carefully when driving in snow. You can spin your wheels in wet (or dry) conditions somewhat effortlessly and I'm pretty mindful of that now. Ground clearance is really the only concern when dealing with the white stuff but I haven't gotten stuck as of yet. Functionally, the GTI is deceptively large. I can easily fit four adults in the car without compromise...I'm sure the 2-door model feels different in this regard. The hatchback and folding rear seats also make for a surprising amount of cargo space when it's required. Gas mileage around the city is not that great...maybe 18-20 mpg in my experience. Conversely, mileage on the highway is astoundingly good...well over 30 mpg. My record is 36 mpg on a 200 mile drive. All in all, the GTI is amazingly useful in most real-world situations. Perhaps the only thing I thing I can point to and wish VW had done better is the NS-315 navigation/media unit. Everything works fine but I find the interface a little cumbersome in design and implementation....maybe VW should have hired Apple to write the car's software because I think it could have been done better. All in all, this is one of the best cars I've ever owned and I've had quite a few. I do miss some of the luxuries of my previous cars, like automatic climate control but those amenities would ruin the overall theme of the GTI: fast, fun, high-quality but spartan....very German at it's core. For the money, I can't see how you can get much more quality & bang for your buck. While cars like the Mazda 3 Speed are technically faster, they also seriously lack the quality and refinement of the GTI. To summarize: One year later and this car still gets 5/5 stars from me...I only wish I could give it six out of five. :)
