I really love this car. I've had it for a little over a year now and it runs excellently. I've had to replace a few minor things such as hoses and belts, clutch, and the trim started coming off but it was an easy fix with an adhesive tape that you can get from any auto parts store...it's called molding tape. I've put many high performance parts on my VW and it has 250 whp with no problems with the motor at all. I would highly recommend this vehicle. Just make sure you inspect it before you buy. My 1997.5 Jetta Vr6 has 111,982 miles on it and like I said before it runs great.
The way this car can handle the road is amazing...
Uprage your suspension. I have Bilsten fully adjustable suspension. The car is lowered a little bit but it looks great. Put some alloys on it. Cold air intake system, full exhaust, and a chip is all you really need for this car to fly.
