Seems like I’ve been on the hunt for “perfection” over the past few listings, and a lot of it comes down to the package and colors. That’s no different today. This 2018 GTI is an “S” model 4-door. All three trim lines in the ’18 GTI had the same powertrain; the 2.0T inline-four rated at 220 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Jumping up to the SE got you a sunroof and some driver-assistance features, while the Autobahn got you more tech as well. But the base spec was a nice trim, even if you lost the sunroof. And one other reason that it was nice was the interior; the Tartan inserts and cloth seats have always been my favorite on these, and they’re not an option as you moved up to the leather-clad top models. As a bonus, this one is also my favorite color of the time – Great Falls Green – and is a manual. With moderate mileage and a few mods, is it a hit or miss?

The good? No surprise, it’s that green. I love it! The interior is awesome, it’s got the “right” transmission, and I prefer the 4-door configuration. Bad? Well, truth told I don’t think the modifications enhance the appeal at all – in fact, quite the opposite. However, finding a stock Great Falls Green GTI seems unusually hard. Considering how expensive the new GTI is, this one at $28k with under 40k miles seems like a reasonable compromise if you don’t mind that someone spent some time hotrodding it. As for me, the search continues.
I shudder to think what the clutch is like on this car, as it’s probably been hooned to within an inch of it’s life.
