I am looking at buying a '07 GTI with DSG and wondering if I hate myself for getting the Pre-'08.5 engine? Mainly because everything I see is about the love for the '08.5+ engines.

I'm looking at the GTI as a beater/commuter car. I don't plan on tracking the car; but if I do, it'll be more for my own fun than anything else.

So is the '06-'08 GTI's any fun?
