Same regrets here. I think everyone that didn't get the PP thinks that at some point haha.

sorry we never met up, but i ran a local mk6 gt2876R apr stage 3 full bolt ons on 91 octane dsg with semi slicks

Vs

is38 mk7 full bolt ons on 100 octane, manual and on some hankook v12s.

mk7 pulled a car and a half from 60-145 both cars had traction

mk6 jumped out 2-3 cars on a 40 roll cause the mk7 couldnt hook up, and mk7 slowly reeled in but didnt pass, would have been different if the mk7 was also on semi slicks.

also would have been different if the mk6 was on 100 octane. Comparison isnt black and white, but mk7 gti with an is38 and 100 octane pulls harder than a 91 octane gt2876r on the mk6... still looking for a ko4 gti locally lol

...I feel like instigating a battle....

MK7 guys love throwing numbers out there, but we've never had an MK6 vs Mk7 where all mods/fuel were relatively equal. We MK6ers are ready, but you MK7ers seem to continuously dodge the bullet.

Mod for mod isn't really fair, I'd hope the next generation car would have been better than the last, I think vw would have screwed up if it wasn't... Now if you wanna compare like total price invested Im sure you can make an mk6 faster than a mk7, but then that' buying a new car vs a used car lol, trust me no one is dodging anybody, stage 2 mk6s make like 260 whp vs 300+ from mk7s.. I'd expect the same from stage 2+ as well (ko4 vs is38)

Lol, I was only kidding.

To be honest with you VWs competition is not in house.

The MK6 vs MK7 is actually moot in my opinion, especially when you have Ford, Honda, Subaru, and other competitors launching their newer generation affordable sport cars with crazy performance figures - it forces VW to step up their game. (Which they did!)

If we go back 2 generations, VW didn't really need to do much to stay competitive from the MK5 to MK6, but now its a completely different story.
