This car is my love. I don't like how these cars look stock though. there kinda boxy and awkward. So i lowered mine and its the most amazing thing ever i get so many looks. At first i got it with 60k miles and it needed alot of maintenance like timing belt and ignition coils. Timing belt was $1000 at dealer so i took somewhere else for $500. Beware, the dealer is expensive. I either fix stuff myself or take somewhere else.
It is a reliable car if you treat it good. If you always rag on the car itll rag on your wallet. Its fast too, i wont ever sell mine, in fact when the engine goes i will swap another 1.8t into it i love it that much. Hope you like yours just as much as i do.
Turbo, Long gear ratio great for racing if you do. Sitting in the car feels like sitting at a table..its so comfortable rather then sitting slouched in other sports cars. The hatchback makes the car so useful. Cant get 4 wheels and tires in most other cars. seats go down very easy. lots of room in the back its surprising.
Lower it, Exhaust, Basic Short Ram Intake. Do these 3 things and you will love it forever.
