I've invested in an upgrade chip for my Volkswagen GTI. It now has 215 horsepower. There has been a significant improvement in the acceleration. K&N air filter helped too. This car has been all that I've expected. If you want a Porsche then that's what you should buy. This is a bang for the buck automobile! Knock on wood I've had no mechanical problems. I'm 6'2" and I think it could use more leg room though.
this car has decent handling, decent gas milage, and quality German engineering.
Upgrade the cheap interior. My armrest cover is broken already. Give the option to move the rails back to obtain more leg room. If it's so easy to safely and efficiently increase HP then why not give it from the factory?
