American Stock GTI vs German GTI

I was wondering what will be the difference between an American GTI 200 HP and a German GTI 212 HP?

Is it a big difference, is the performance in means of accelration different by any means?

I would think 12 HP isnt going to make a lot of difference, there are a lot of factors to consider:

air temperature
driver/passenger weight
fuel grade
etc
etc

Mail your ECU to APR? You won't have to pay install fees either This assumes you can live without your car for the duration of shipping it.

I have a feeling that both have the exact same power, just different listed numbers.

I asked my sales guy once he said it was advertising so that the audi models, except the A3, looked like they had more power

I heard the same thing...makes sense. Some corporate move to make the nearly identical A3 more feasable for its price point. Seems like the US GTIs are underrated, since most dynos are posting 198 HP at the wheels...I'm guessing that translates to a little more than just 200HP.
