2002 Volkswagen GTI 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


VW is very conservative in their HP rating on this vehicle. Take it to any
diagnostic garage and let them do a dyno on it. You will surprised by the
"real" HP rating. Then add on the VW dual exhaust system and give
yourself another 5% HP boost just for kicks. The 17" wheel option is a must
for this car. One thing though, why doesn't this car have GTI badging on the
front grille? Hint, you can order it from Europe and put it on yourself. I did,
and now everyone knows whats in ther rearview mirror just before I scoot
around them.

Best Features

High grade interior material and workmanship. A+ on occupant safety features. Incredible torque for the engine size.

Worst Features

Maybe a little switch that changes the suspension from normal to a stiffer dragster mode.
