Just so you know there has been a fox for the TDI intercooler problem for the past 45 months. so you can trade your GTI now and start getting 44MPG +(depending on how you drive) now.
--dont tell me you are one of those douchebag that go to the dealer and complain about MPG...
line A. customer states poor MPG or not same as window sticker.
story... driver slower. use 93. keep you valves clean.

Hurrrrrrr.

No, from what I've read on tdiclub people with the 'fix' replacement intercooler and piping are still having the problem.

I wasn't complaining about the mileage of my GTI. I like my GTI just the way it is.

Actually, most of the cars have the same power in either version. HP is calculated differently in other countries (when they use HP at all, even), and sometimes the manufacturer will change the advertised number downwards as they decide how they want it to look in comparison to other cars they sell in the same market.

It's funny how I've seen it said that vortex is the place filled with assholes.
Time for vulgarities! Go fuck yourself! Everyone ignore this prick!

False. You keep mentioning this but it is not true. The different emission standards might make a slight difference but nothing that is going to be noticeable. The HP numbers are a marketing tool. Ever wonder why VW claims US spec GTIs make 200 HP, yet every tuning company is quick to tell you they are pushing closer to 215 HP?

OP's bedtime must have 10pm EST.

Everyone chill, there's only one side of the argument that needs name calling and vulgarities to prove their point.
