      Hey guys , I own mk6 1.8 ‘TSI I’m wondering is it worth putting the money into to performance upgrades or should I just buy a r32 or golf r ?

      Depends on what you want. I had a nice 17 Passat and it was just a tad slow. So I pulled the snow filter out of the airbox (I live in Florida) and added a BMS JB1 piggy back tuning box and on 93 octane it was a much more fun to play with car.

      Side note my JB1 is for sale and works on your car. It's in the Passat classified section.

      Hey it absolutely is worth upgrading the performance. I just put the APR stage 1 tune in my Gen 3 1.8 Jetta and it is a night and day difference over stock. So many more things you can do after that. Good luck!
