Was pulling out what's left of my hair , trying to figure out how to get a bike rack on the GTI. There's very little info out there, and VW offers only scary and expensive roof racks (never would feel comfortable with a $1,600 bike up there @ 80mph). I read the positive reviews for the Curt hitch for other makes , so decided to try. The installation sheet says "15 minutes" installation. As a former auto mechanic, and given the tight quarters of the VW, I thought "yeah right". But let me tell you how great the hitch is! Easy install without drilling, welding , blow torches or explosives. It literally bolts to the chassis in minutes. Not even enough time to finish a beer. I'm confident that it's well secured. The quality is superb and I haven't bottomed out yet. I can tell you VW GTI & Rabbit series owners in particular that this is the perfect solution. And AutoAnything has been a great experience, the thing showed up a few days after ordering.
