      Yea, not digging the new tailights, bumpers, steering wheel, and cheap piano black trim. At least they spared us the awful nav unit from the MK7 GTI.

      Also, I'd much rather have the Honeywell turbo for reliability. The new GTIs are experiencing lots of turbo failures (among other recalls) if you go and read the MK7 forum. Having the 1st model...

      The GTI turbo does not spool quicker. The power band is later than the GLI. That is the compromise with a larger turbo.

      The GTI engine also has cam phasing and Audi valve lift on the exhaust side. The turbo is mounted opposite of the GLI engine, this is easily seen from the engine bay.

      It's VW ' S fail they...

      The dealer was probably trying to raise the rate to make more money. Regardless of lender these days if you have above 720 you should get prime rate. I had no problem getting the 0% deal back in...

      GIAC finally got back to me.

      They do have a 93 octane specific tune, so the #'s should theoretically be higher than what they are showing on 91, which are already close to APR's 93 claims.

      He...

      It's pretty common with most of the turbo cars these days. I believe once you add an aftermarket downpipe and intake they are closer to 270-280whp.

      I will add that it seems to be a national trend that dealerships are consolidating into the mega companies. A few of the independently owned dealers around Richmond (as in owned by a...

      I'm well aware of the RS6..V8 biturbo that can be tuned and make huge power. But I'm also aware of the upkeep and potential failures, and pricing that into the car I still wouldn't pay $18k. I...

      Yea but your example is more like 12-15% of net, which is hard on $40k. Even in a relatively cheap city to live like Richmond, VA, getting by on $40k will be tough if you don't want to live in the...

      The original auto transmission probably failed and it's no doubt easier to probably buy the MT parts and swap, if it all just bolts up.

      The CEL is on though, typical Audi. Way too much for 117k. ...

      Well, this has been going on for 10+ years now (there were sludge issues on the old Passat and other cars I believe) as well with Audis, so I'm surprised to see they're still up to their old tricks...

      I think the issue is the 36k miles..not necessarily the years. Still surprised they are not covering it under the 5/60k powertrain though.

      Why is that bad? You go buy one new like some of us and then ask that question again. [emoji14]

      Yea, that joke of a tuned GTI runs a 110mph trap in the 1/4 and with the performance pack LSD would.probably smoke a STI around the track, actually.
