Finally traded in my GTP. Can't say I will miss it, cause I definately won't. I got a great deal on a Volkswagen Jetta GLI. Here is a quick cell pic. Anyone have some good mod and styling ideas?

Thanks Eagle, I hope I won't have the troubles with this car like I had with the GP.

Riski- not a fan of the CC.

Yes, it has the 2.0 turbo with a 6 speed auto trans. It has that manual shift feature also with paddle shifters.

I'll ask the guy at work who's big into vw's about other companies.

I know a tune really wakes it up. I also know the front mount is tiny and sandwiched between the radiator and A/C condenser(or whatever it's called)

lots of good info here for aftermarket stuff.

easiest things to do would be a tune, intake, and exhaust. Also update the diverter valve with the Forge aftermarket one. Stock valve tends to blow the seals under more boost than stock.

Also get the dogbone engine mount. made a huge difference in my GTI off the line. Almost totally eliminated the shuddering at high rpm launches.

Cool. Thanks for the info. I have heard about the diverted valves being junk and to replace it. The guy here is doing the tune this weekend. So I'm excited to see what difference it makes.
