      Hey, that's fine. No shame in that, I do that myself. haha



      The point is I'm speaking from experience and you are speaking from theory I guess (but what theory I'm not sure and no "You have to...

      Have you owned any VW's and modded them before? Just curious.

      If not, then I have nothing more to argue with your about.

      You know what would surprise me? If the R came with the Discover pro, LED tails and multi-port injection. :D

      Well then, almost nobody on Vortex has any warranty then. lol (which is obviously not the case)

      The point I was making is that, the concerns over warranty in relation to tuning are grossly...

      Well don't be surprised, because this exact thing happened with the Mk6 R. Both GTI's and R's came with non-LED tail lights here in the US.

      First of all, I'm sure VW is well aware that 90% of the people buying these cars will at the very least get a tune. If they simply start denying warranty coverage just because of an ECU flash, they...

      That is the key phrase imo, the R400 needs a bigger turbo along with stronger internals to be worth it over a regular R. I also want a real torque vectoring LSD but that might be asking too much.

      No one is whining.

      I believe the feeling that the OP wanted to convey was similar to a parent saying that It'll be a sad day when their kids graduate school etc. Implying that they've grown up,...

      Maybe its different in Canada, but VW dealers in the US are generally pretty lenient when it comes to modding especially just a tune. Some even have partnerships with tuners.

      Of course there are...

      This!

      Performance wise Haldex is just as good as any other AWD system, it might even be better than some "full time" AWD systems because of less weight. People just need to get over trying to...

      Are you sure you're rubbing with that tire size on stock rims and springs? That does not seem likely at all especially with our taller than euro stock springs.

      You are taking what I said too literally, I just meant some motors have more headroom than others.

      I read somewhere that the R400 is essentially using the same engine as the regular R with minor...

      But that would mean that its not maxed out already and that there is significant head room in the R400. This leads me to my second point that it needs a bigger turbo to differentiate it enough from...

      Anyone else feel that now that we kind of have an idea of what the stage 1 R will be making, it kind of makes the R400 pointless?

      I mean I like the wider fenders/track and lower curb weight but...

      For what its worth, I think I read somewhere that the R has a much beefier clutch than the GTI this time around.





      I agree with the different tuner and different dyno reasoning. I guess...

      Impressive numbers but why does the stage 1 Golf R have lower peak torque than a stage 1 GTI (looking at APR numbers here), doesn't make sense.

      I would love to come back to you with exact numbers but the new VW site is absolutely garbage (doesn't even have a build a car section). I think the a 2015 GTI with Autobahn & lighting package comes...
