True, but a tune paired with intake an exhaust can make n/a car more fun to drive? I'm not looking for a race car lol I knowingly bought a golf vs a gti. I would assume the car could be more fun to drive, maybe I'm wrong :/

nope. you won't be justified enough from what you pay. if it was 100$ sure. the tune is the same price as a gti's.

This is exactly what I have been looking for!

Can't wait to put some decent suspension on my 2.5 (probably coilovers) but have to get rid of these steelies first

My 2.5 lowered on solowerks. On the cheaper side, but I have no complaints

well I'm glad some people know how to read a forum. Welcome. Save up for smart mods, not quick ones. I would get koni or h&r ultra lows for coilovers.

I am leaning toward koni's as I've heard a lot of good surrounding them. Haven't heard much about the ultra lows but I am not against them. I mainly want to get rid of my monster truck gap with a lower stance and better handling... but still want to be able to drive/corner it spiritedly as I do fairly often. Don't get me wrong though I do love the low just need to find that balance!

If you want good combo, koni is best. Ultra low is for slamming it. Ppl here try to get racelands and slam it and suspension fails.

Eurojet

Hey is Eurojet still in business? I've been waiting for their exhaust to come back in stock for months. I heard they merged into Stasis but then they left stasis???

no, they are not making any new ones since mk5, and I think they sold out, and just take your money and say back order until you complain pretty much
