I want to see mkVI mods!

Anyone seen any mods to the new golf yet? I know mau65 put 18's on his i think but other than that I can't find anything else on the web. Surely someone has lowered theirs by now or something. Please post some pics if you come across anything! Thanks

From what l understand, most of the 118 TSI's are arriving in Australia with the 7 speed DSG, which has a "performance" limit. Does the Oettinger product fall within the 7 speed DSG power limit?

What I heard is the 7 spd dsg is rated to 250nm and the stock 118 TSI is already 240. Suggests that the Oettinger is pushing the 7 spd's limits.
The quote from Oettinger was in response to my query re: the new golf. So they must be aware of it.

My thoughts are that the stock tyres cannot transmit the 240nm without wheelspin so its probably moot that 290nm will be stressed on the transmission without it being relived through wheelspin.

Personally, I'm waiting awhile to see what happens with other tuners before I take the plunge.

Here ya go:

Mcchip VW Golf GTI VI with 252HP

Quote:
If the new Volkswagen Golf GTI's 210 horsepower turbocharged four pot isn't powerful enough for you, the tuners at Mcchip have readied a rather straightforward performance package that will be officially revealed at this week's Tuning World Bodensee in Germany. A quick ECU tune that has been priced at €849 (around US$1,150) adds another 42HP and 100Nm or 74lb-ft bringing the total output of the 2.0 TSI to 252HP and 380Nm or 280lb-ft of torque.

In addition to the engine software upgrade, Mcchip's tuning proposal for the 2009 VW Golf GTI also includes a sport suspension kit from H&R that brings the hot hatch a few inches closer to the ground as well as beefier 19-inch alloy wheels in a black finish from OZ plus a set of 'racing-stripes' available in various colors.

that tune is freakin' awesome, I'm just wondering how the car would possibly respond to it (i.e. rough idles, etc.)

And also would something like that trash it's impressive fuel economy?

Just to clear things up, that car is owned by McChip, not by me. I just found it, and thought I should share.
