Guys/gals, there is an obvious obsession with GTI vs. WRX/STI or Evo. Having owned MULTIPLE Subaru and VW products in my past (WRX/STI - MK2/MK3/MK6 etc), I have come to realize that one of the greatest things that I value in our cars, is how much they are under-estimated. Yeah, don't race a stock MK6 GTI against a newer WRX/STi without expectation of disappointment, but don't put them on a pedestal either. You're also comparing apples to oranges (ask me which car I like to drive in the snow). The K03 boosts "hard" and quickly by comparison. Subies, not so quickly but don't bitch out up top...as much. This seems to be a factor that is ignored frequently. A (HYPOTHETICAL) 300hp car at 6000rpms vs a 300hp car BY 4,500 rpms (not-to-mention torque)... I feel like a lot of you/us, tend to also under-estimate the power of supporting modifications. Read the threads, learn from them, spend your money right. You'll be amazed at what your GTI can do. Mod smarter, not harder.
