      I have had 2 people I personally know that regret buying bags. But, in the end it is all just personal preference.

      Do you want show, or do you want go?

      There is always that nice moment when you pull up beside a GTI and he thinks you got nuttin. Or there are the times you pull up beside this static kid thinking he is low and then you dump her.

      LMAO! Pick your poison i guess... Im already retartedly low for the roads around here, for me it doesnt make sense for bags. Every tom dick and harry has bags here, and they do it just for status. Which is really lame.

      Whatever you do, do it for yourself and what you will enjoy most.

      SEMA musclecar events. When I went in 2010 EVERY 60's-70's musclecar running the autocross, roadcourse and everything in between were on air suspension... ALL of them I looked at were. They did phenomenally well.

      Turbo. 250hp will do nicely.

      Bags are the parachute pants of the automotive world. One day, you'll be hoping no one still has any pictures of you rocking them.

      You could also go headers and full exhaust, then couple that with a C2 SRI & tune, and an APR Carbonio.

      You'll still get to spend a lot of money, but it will be more reliable. Not to mention an easier install.

      205 hp at the wheels. Can't complain about that.

      I remember when people modified their Volkswagen to enhance the driving experience. What ever happened to Fahrvergnugen?
      Bags are for kids that grew up watching Pimp My Ride. Turbo is for all of us that enjoy actual motorsport.

      WOW awesome at all the replies. Now i just won a court case i filed for about 2 years ago with my apartment roomate owing me a ton of money and now that i see and have been researching i AM GOING TURBO lol. but now the question is get the stage 1 kit and see if it satisfies or go straight to stage 2. Seems like the only difference is software and FMIC for like 2000 more dollars.

      First of, its a 500-1000 dollar difference...Second, which kits are you comparing? The EL kits? FMIC is def worth it, specially since it doesn't add 2000 bucks.

      No, as pensy mentioned not much is needed when going stage 3. Option b is to do 8.5:1 pistons.

      If you have any questions on going turbo with the Rabbit, give me a shout anytime.... I love taking a break from trolling Vortex and responding to emails to talk with a fellow enthusiast



      Also, for discussion purposes: my Harlequin is on bags BUT i have the itch to go fast now so it will be seeing a swap over winter and will still be on bags next year
