      wasnt manual, way lower mpg, limited power because the twin clutch trans sucks and slips at higher power. And I got a good deal on the VW, If i didnt get a good deal I wouldnt have traded it in

      Looks good bro! If you are looking to get any suspension components let me know. I just upgraded my entire suspension system with KW V3s, Whiteline Suspension Bushings and Whiteline Sway Bars/End Links.

      Car looks great, you planning on getting wheels?

      Just be conservative on the gas. I actually got 42.2 which is the highest I've ever seen going from Chicago to Minneapolis.
