      This is how I feel about my 2.5 Rabbit. It's certainly quicker than the TDI but its still complete snooze to drive.

      My testing was all done on back roads in farm country, PA; open twisty roads with plenty of opportunity for thrills. Each test was done on the same loop for ~ 20 minutes or so each.

      True. My other consideration is for whom ever my passenger is and possibly them not fitting the recaro seat; then their ride is going to be bad time.

      I don't need the HID/LED stuff, keeps the cost lower. To me, the only real competition here is the Golf VII 1.8T in terms of price/power potential.

      With my disappointment in the Abarth interior, the Fiesta ST and 2015 Golf 1.8T seem like the front runners for me. Is there anything you owners particularly don't like about the ST?

      My b5 was to be a summer daily...then I drove it in the snow all winter and had way too much fun! That pesky snow isn't going to change the ride height though :D

      Prices on the 2013's are really attractive and I've been looking to part ways with this boring MKV Rabbit...might have to take a look this weekend!

      Did you replace this with an LCD that needed the ribbon cable surface mount soldered? I was considering this but I really don't want to buy a rework soldering iron just for this project...

      I'm betting all these people who have a crap shoot on a rebuild didn't balance their CHRA or used low end replacement kits. Buy the good stuff, balance the assembly, you'll get a lot from the turbos....

      Yeah, I guess on the MK5 VW platform the ST's only go down to 1.8" of a drop in the front, 1.4" in the rear, at least according to the website...

      For the B5 they go down 2.8" all around!

      Gpopshop.com should have rebuild kits for the KO3s. I would recommend having the turbos balanced after replacing the bearings though...

      I had some V1 Ksports in the past; even on the softest setting they were way too stiff for a daily driver. I have a set of the ST's on my B5 A4 and they are a very comfortable riding coilover. It's...
