I have owned this car since last July, i have owned one other VW in my time, and this is a contiuned experience in the ultimate fun, comfort, reliabilty and all around excellent car experience. I couldn't possibly think about going back to another brand after this. What other company can boast such a family like following. The aftermarket makes it such a pleasure to work on and make this little car your own. You couldn't possibly get bored with this VW. Just get a subscription to EuroTuner Mag and your brain will be filled with the possiblities. you won't even have to break your bank. and many you can do by yourself. So try it out, performance, comfort, luxury. it's got it all!
1.8 Turbo motor makes a ton of horsepower for such a little car. Telescoping steering wheel is awesome, seats keep tradtion alive, don't fix what ain't broke! Exhaust system is great sounding. Stereo is awesome. 17 inch rims give lots of style right out of the box. the ability to turn off EPS a +.
Improve cloth seat coverings. Rock guards could be sturdier, (mine fell off after the first snow fall of the year.) A bigger OEM Intercooler would increase horsepower easily. More Crome rims to pick from.
