When we announced the 2007 Volkswagen GTI as the Automobile Magazine Automobile of the Year in January, we decided we'd like to see GTIs that some of our readers own. We had a good response in our forums, with a lot of very cool little hatches. We decided we'd narrow them down to our five favorites, and let you all vote for what you think is the best one. Check out the pictures below, and then vote in the poll down the page. For the original forum containing more cars and pictures, click here.
