Please, please keep us updated.

I think i speak on behalf of many GTI owners when i say i'm interested to see how these upgrades affect the car on a daily basis.

And we're all jealous of you.

I'm glad you mention inspiration. When I first won the kit I was afraid to take such a big step being that I got the car with an extended warranty and it only has 14k miles on it, but once I saw the facility and met the team of people developing the kit.. it was on. These guys seriously know their stuff.

Yes, it is a very big step to take with a car that's almost as good as brand spanking new. But, if you're well covered and you feel you trust the team I wouldn't hesitate either..
I really hope this turns out great..!

More first impressions...

The power just pulls and pulls and pulls up past 120mph (on a closed course of course ). 60 mph comes faster than any other car I've ridden in, but it comes on super smooth. The DXD clutch feels almost as smooth as OEM, but will certainly handle the increased power. 1st and 2nd gear feel so good. Previously, the car was APR stage I flashed which is plenty powerful but I found myself spinning the tires quicker as the powerband came on at a lower rpm. With the stage III kit, the power comes on just a little later, and that seems to make all the difference, because somehow I'm getting decent traction.

I'm also impressed by the fact that my exhaust (cat-back) is still OEM. So there is some serious power to be put down, even with stock pipes; which I prefer. This car looks completely stock from the exterior.
