      Fair enough. Get a Mk6.

      Newest, most loaded MK6 GLI I could find. That body style is aging very well. However the interior of that car is leagues below a MK7.

      Who said it has to be a mk7... he could still get a Mk6 4dr GTI, but if OP is able to sell his MK7 for 14k I dont see why he cant find another for the same price.

      Golf SportWagen then swap all your modded bits from the GTI over to it.

      I want to suggest a G37, but I feel like that's a loaded + obvious answer coming from me. But they are roomier than the E90, more reliable than the E90 + E60, and tuned + equipped nicely (stickshift = sport package = LSD + big brakes + better steering + other driver goodies). Def worth a look IMO. Everything else is some combo of less reliable, less roomy, worse equipped and wacker drivetrain

      I would seriously run away from any BMW of that era. The GLI will be much more fun (I've had em both), have modern tech -- not to mention much cheaper and easier to repair. Dollar per smiles, I put my tuned GLI up there with my Cayman.

      My reply didn't post and I lost the message. so I'll have to give a TLDR:

      -ATS looks awesome, 2.0T RWD 6MT!! Concern is rear seat and trunk size, may be too small?
      -My GTI is awesome and still considering keeping it.
      -C300 is sick + DTM racing prestige
      -328i is similar to my 128i, so that is a solid
      -B5 S4 has imploding engine or was that B6/B7 V8's? Electrical gremlins??
      -4 door GTI/R don't do it for me, grew up in 2 door GTI's (Dad's 1 MKI and 3 MKII's, and owned MKIV)
      -MKIV GLI has aged well, a clean example can still be had with some searching
      -MKVI GLI I should test drive
      -Wife wouldn't be caught dead in a wagon, but give it a couple years, I'll turn her to the dark side. E63 wagon let's go!

      There are the more mature options such as CC and Accords, but at the price point have the Subaru's, Acura's, Honda's and Toyota's age well both interior and exterior? CC certainly has especially a rust free one.

      My wife loves her ‘17 Gli and I have no complaints about it.

      I did throw a neuspeed piggyback on it for a bit more grunt. Low setting. Not sure what the clutch on these will tolerate.

      ATS and newest GLI possible i think are your best options.

      As a side note, I owned a MKIV GLI. While I certainly never placed a car seat in it (high school/college), i'm damn near certain there is no way a rear facing seat will fit while allowing anyone other than a dual amputee to sit in the front seat. The recaros that came in that car take up a good bit of space.

      If I was the OP I'd see about doing a private trade on a 5 door GTI for his 3 door. Surely there is someone out there who would rather have a 3 door with similar mileage.

      I went from a MK7 GTI to a MK6 GLI and it suuuuuuuucked. It felt like I went back 10 years in terms of automotive development. I was absolutely miserable. I then went from a MK6 GLI to a Elantra Sport and was so much happier. The car drives way nicer, the steering felt better, handles better, and the interior had no rattles (I've had two MK6 Jettas and both were rattle city). The only downside is that the Elantra Sports engine doesn't respond nearly as well to the aftermarket and it's more expensive to mod.

      Don't forget about the VW/Audi (and BMW even) 12 year rust warranty. Completely transferable too. Find a 2009 or later somewhat rusty example, let the dealership deal with it for a couple weeks, and drive it like you stole it. That's what I'm doing for my gal's MkV, got a great deal on a (so far) problem free car with cosmetic issues a dealer will be fixing on February 3rd.

      Agreed. I like the look of the current C-Class and even test drove one back in 2016. Rear seat was cramped, materials seemed thin, and the deal breaker was that awful sounding engine. It was so bad even my wife who doesn't care about such things commented on it. Sounded grainy, winy, and cheap which is sad because I still love the looks of the car. Maybe refreshed car w/the 6 cyl is better?

      Since OP is in Upstate Imma recommend an A4. Unstoppable in winter, good looks, nice car to drive, good engine, easy to find a good one like this..

      Maybe this will change your mind?



      Car started life as a stock ‘10 6-speed C300. Still has the stock engine and gearbox today.

      Pop in an aftermarket AA/CP integration module + screen and it will look and more importantly work modern enough.

      Well when you purposely pick the worst picture available on Google Image Search anything will look crappy. In real life sure it's not the most up to date but it's not a bad place to be either. Good layout, nice switch gear, nice materials, nice rear seat area, etc.

      Hell, I bought a CPO A3 for less than 20, I'd imagine it would be considerably less with a private party sale and no warranty. Same with A4.

      Im going to get thrown under a bus for this one, but you should look onto a Sentra Nismo, i'm sure you can get one for pennies now that the new sentra is coming out. 6sp 4dr sedan with plenty of leg room and plenty of trunk space, i had place 3 baby seats in the back without issues, i currently have a front facing seat and a booster seat for my kid and my wife can fit in the middle perfectly. she is 5'1 i'm 6 feet tall, i can have my seat comfortably without being cramped (something i wasn't able to do on the GLI we test drove) I've gone on road trips with the car with our crib, stroller bags and it all fits there.

      Or like everybody else buy a 5dr GTI, i've been wanting to test drive one of those but until i get the house purchased i'm stawing away from dealers...

      As someone that lived with a 3dr GTI with 1 kid for 5 years and 2 kids for 1 year, I went with a 5dr R. Problem solved.

      The MK7 is a blast to drive, and much easier to get kids in and out of than the 3dr MK5 that I had.

      I will say, I'm not sure if the numbers bear it out, but to me the MK7 Golf feels a bit small inside versus my MK5, which felt cavernous from a head and leg room standpoint (despite the numbers suggesting that the MK7 is actually ~3 inches longer than the MK5 - the old car just felt much more airy inside (kind of missing it, actually).

      First of all, congrats on the first born!

      For me, as a new dad (and especially once the second one arrived) I found it increasingly difficult to get out with the "fun" weekend car. You may find it more enjoyable to just have the one car - a fun daily that you can enjoy with the kiddos.

      So my write-in vote is to sell both the GTI and the 128 and put in a little more on a cool daily - MK7 Golf R, Stinger GT, 335i M perf, yadda yadda
