What do you miss from your previous car?


Ready to race!
Though I love my new GTI it will never have the same sound that my previous car did. 2000 Celica GTS, the sound of the 2ZZ engine with a CAI and a good exhaust screaming from 6K to 8K+ RPM is a thing of beauty. There is a reason there are so many Youtube vids of guys running through the gears in their 2ZZ powered cars.


Ready to race!
I hear you...

My last car was a 1999 Civic SiR. B16A2 with Comptech I/H/E. Yes, that run from 6-8,000 rpm was spine tingling. Like a swarm of angry mechanical hornets screaming to get loose under the hood.

And only 2,600 lb, too. GTI feels like a tank in comparison.


Ready to race!
Yes my Celica was only 2500 lbs. It was fun to toss around. On the bright side I gave it to my son so if I really get nostalgic I can just tell him to bring it over so I can go for a drive:LOL:.

I didn't care much for my 2012 Passat, but the one thing I miss is climatronic. It was the best A/C system I've ever had in a car. Our recent Nissans have also had dual-zone automatic climate control, but it's not as good. VW's was the only one I've experienced that's truly "set it and forget it."

Rear wheel drive. My wife still has the car a 2006 325i so I can drive. It is not nearly as fun or quick as the GTI, but rear drive is a different experience.

The hydraulic steering and oversteer. It was an STR prepped NC Miata.

I do miss the plushness my Saab offered and still slapped some cars around. Bilstein shocks/struts w/ H&R springs.. Chipped to 270HP with res delete; upgraded brakes. Drop the seats and it swallowed cargo with ease..

I should have K04'd ...
