If you're not interested in modding that is cool.. I am trending lightly myself, but I can definitely appreciate some of the great efforts people on this forum are putting into their cars. I think it is great and fun to watch peoples projects proceed and grow.

And if you don' like it that is fine... you'll just have to ignore about 95% of the content on this forum.

I can't understand why anyone would post a question like this. Why be happy with your golf when you can be ecstatic? Why not change all kinds of things?

See, I look on it as an option - a $600 option. Name me one other $600 option with as much value as an extra 90 lb/ft of torque.

I'll wait.

None...

Best mod for the money. I still can't believe when people say it's underwhelming (after verifying no component failures causing issues). Anyone disappointed by the results of stage 1 must be going into it expecting their GTI to magically become an Audi R8.

Why would I modify my car? Because homogenization is for milk.

Its called a passion. If you wanna just be another driver, go for it, but personally i love being apart of the car tuning culture. Some people spend 1000's of $ on golf clubs, or basket ball shoes or electronics (mac anyone?). Id rather improve what i love and make it unique. I gotta ride in it everywhere, why wouldnt i? You buy a nice house, why wouldnt you wanna do stuff like install new shades, doors, faucets, and things. Same principle.

Your question is like asking "why do men love sex?"

I cant understand why someone would post a question like this on a Forum like this? I mean most of us have modded vehicles in some way shape or form. Weather it's a tune, and exhaust, suspension, wheels, what ever. I personally have modified in some way or fashion every vehicle I have ever owned, it is something I like to do for my self not anyone on here or anywhere else. I do love this forum though and being able to share my obsession with others who have can appreciate it.
