      Hello everyone!

      I just picked up a bone stock 337 GTI from the original owner with 76000 miles. It's my first mk4 and I'm really excited to get into the mk4 world!

      If anyone has some suggestions for certain maintenance and upgrades for mk4s that'd be greatly appreciated!

      Congrats man! i am personally trying to get one myself one in the spring (337 or 20th). Usually the first thing is a ram air/CAI, downpipe, FMIC and a upgraded diverter valve is usually is a good place to start. Good websites are Urotuning (my favorite) and ECS tuning to find a good amount of aftermarket stuff. Also if you are not part of any mk4 groups on fb i would highly recommend that because of parts and advice!

      First thing before any mods is to do the timing belt/water pump if it hasn't been done!

      Thankfully, the previous owner was very meticulous about maintenance and had the water pump and timing belt done about 10,000 miles ago!

      As an owner, I can absolutely recommend this car.
      Just watch out for rust under the side-skirts and for the timing-belt.
      Enjoy it!
      Your favorite Ziemniak, hold the gravy.

      Make sure the sunroof drains are properly attached and cleaned out!

      What are the Main Differences . Ive got an 2002 VR6 24V 6 speed GTI . Love the car . What are the differences between a 337 GTI , 20 Anniversary AE model and a regular GTI . I know most were 1.8 Turbo cars and mine is sort of a Poor Man's R32 . I think the MK 4 cars are the best looking .
