      I had no idea the dealer takes care of rock chips. I have so many. Even on the side panels of the rear.

      They didn't. I did. They've got a dent / detailer there few days out of the week. Paid him $100 for the touch up. Worth the money, I was over all the white specs over the hood.

      sounds like you've got POS wheels & tires, not car.

      Honestly I guess that gives some perspective on how loyal Volkswagen owners are since you always come back.

      Brought it to the stealership cause it was leaking coolant.

      They decided to do my 20k service too. Apparently it's taking into tomorrow so I got a sh*t brown Jetta for a loaner. 2.5SEL though. Not too bad.

      Bringing my GTI to the dealership tomorrow too. Burning smell from the front right part of the car. Will probably have them look at the dribbling rear windshield while I'm at it.

      Is Stage 3 worth it over K04...? Honest opinions needed.

      Too many factors for such a question

      - Your wallet size

      - your use for the car

      - current mods

      - money for supporting mods for the Stage III

      - how long do you plan on keeping the car

      - Willing to spend money on both.. just trying to find better performance/dollar deal. H.S Tuning offers $2700 installed for K04 and they are only a couple hours away from me. I can make a day out of it and come back with a K04.

      - Come next year, the GTI will not be my daily driver.

      - Stage 2 with intake and turboback exhaust. K04 can use all of the mods that I have.

      - Stage 3 will require an intercooler and different downpipe/midpipe while I can use the stock intercooler with K04.

      - I plan on keeping it for a while and I'll have another daily driver to put the miles on so the GTI won't be racking up 20-25K miles per year.

      The K04 puts up some very stout numbers and with Stage 3 I will only be getting about 40 more peak horsepower at the price of ~ $4,000 more if you factor in intercooler and installation. Quite a bit of money if you ask me. To sum it up, does the Stage 3 kit offer a $4,000 increase in performance over the K04... probably not.

      I would get an intercooler with the k04.....this last summer was brutal.

      And Save money if you want to do the timing chain replacement with the kit from ECS Tuning to avoid the engine failure.

      I think you've sorta answered your own question buddy!

      K04 or Stg 3+. Those should be your only options.

      Would an S3 intercooler be sufficient or find something a little bit larger?

      Car has about 43K on it right now. Also has extended warranty. Zimmy's thread kinda scares me though.

      Don't talk smack. PM sent.
      I realized that after I posted it. 3+ is going to cost big $$ though.
