stage1+ tune is nice enough. just a dp is needed.

Thanks man. I will have to look more into it because I want this to just be my dd for a while. Going to take it into a shop that is local and have them do a bunch of stuff that they think they should do.

Nice car!
Doesn't matter which exhaust you put on it, a 1.8T will never, ever, ever come close to the sound of a 3.2 VR6.

Looks like a nice clean car though, enjoy it op.

according to Austin;

2.0 sounds better than the 2.5

so maybe he thinks the 1.8 will sound like a 3.2

Haha good memory. First of all, the 2.5 is not the 3.2. The 3.2 makes glorious noises. I had a 1.8. Personally, I like the sound of a 2.0 with a proper exhaust over the sound of the 2.5. But thats just me. Plus, the sound of a turbo spooling up and and diverter valve make it far from a tough decision.

You can't even compare the MK4 .:R's exhaust note to the 1.8t. Stupid comment is stupid.

Stage 2 does not kill the engines. Don't buy a K04, it's a waste of money. Buy an F23 kit and make 300 whp on the stock block.

Good lord can you read? I never said that. I would need an exhaust on the MK4 GTI to make myself feel better about not getting the R. Anyone who would ever compare the two would have to be deaf. And you're wrong again, F23 fits FSI, TSI and TFSI. The F21 is the only kit that fits transverse 1.8's from FT

GOD... Looks amazing! I want to keep it stock but being 21 I always want to be modding my cars haha.

Car should be paid off for in about a month... Decided to take out a 3k loan and just use the cash incase something goes wrong. Car payment is $86 bucks a month lol.

I always wanted one of those in Imola Yellow or Jazz Blue. I have though numerous times about selling my MKVI and buying something like this to pocket the money and have no payment. I could not even have full coverage and feel ok with it I think.
