The stock intecooler is a wee bit
small and had saturated with heat, I
live in Southern California, so I
replaced it with an ABD aftermarket
unit and have had great results.
changed to a K & N filter and now the
performance is better too. The
automatic I have is good, but the
stick version is really much more fun.
Never has smoked and the other than
the known recall issues the car has
been very reliable overall but not as
good as say a toyota. I will buy
another one again, once they are
available again in california in 2006.
The driveability is great, slow to get
going but has the turbo boost to make
it roll nice at highway speeds and
More base power for the TDI before
(90 HP is adequate, but not too fun)
