I believe you. You have done these things to your car, and fortunately you were able to do much of the work yourself. I used to do the same thing with my cars of past, but due to a back injury from several years ago, I just cant turn wrenches on cars like I used to. So in my case I would have to pay for installation of many of the things that would make this car better. I am guesstimating that with a K04, LSD and supporting mods installed we are looking at 10g's. Granted I dont have to do it all at once, but I look at my car in the garage and think, 10g's to make this car into something I would like it to be, or sell, take the money and 10g's as a down on something that already is.

That is the question. I realize no one can answer it, and in a way its my fault. I never realized how spoiled I was driving an Evo of some sorts for over ten years. It was just what I drove, it was the norm. You get into something else, even something as good as the GTI and I feel like I took a few steps back.

My tracking days are not going to be as hard core as before either. Back issues cant handle it. I just would like to do it occasionally if I can and have something turn key that I can drive whenever, wherever including the track. Makes total financial sense to keep the GTI and work on it. Dont know.

here is a pic of my 9 for fun.

older pic of my GTI prior OEM LED Tails.

Thanks for all your insight guys...Im just sitting tight and will figure somethign out..
