Drive one.

It's a BIG GTI. They share a lot in common. The CC is only 120lbs heavier than a 5dr GTI.

GTI has a whole other persona. If I had only one car and wanted it to be sporty and youthful, yeah GTI is a good choice.

But as a DD to a sports car(which is my situation), the CC is a very good choice. CC vs 3 series. It's a bit of an off comparo the minute you compare a FWD car to RWD. I will say I loved my CC and would not have the 3 if not for the cruddy reliability I experienced.

E36/7: Dinan/RMS stage 2+ blower@11-16lbs of BOOST! 18" BBS LM's, too much more to list
F30: 6mt, SOLD

'06 Saab 9-5 wagon 5mt LSD, clipped turbo, 19psi, 400ft lbs of tq
