So a few weeks ago, I had stopped by Audi here in Seattle to check out some things and I wanted to see the new batch of 2015's. I drove both the 1.8 and 2.0's. They were both awesome and I really liked the features, looks, ride and pickup from the 2.0. I had them run the numbers and got a KILLER deal that I really couldn't pass up since I was looking at getting out of the X1.

Thanks yall. I fucking love this thing. It may not be the fastest but it still moves out well and looks fucking awesome.

I was looking at mods and the gains are pretty crazy on these. ECU tune gains close to 100hp. At least per for the forums. I'll have to research it.

I think it has the same motor as the GTI which means you'll get a ton of gains from a tune alone.

That is fucking sweet. I love Audi. If they partnered up with GM and started dropping LS motors in them, they could rule the world!

I know a tune unlocks a shit ton of power, but I didn't realize the 2015's were getting that much. The car looks great, but I wish they had kept the hatch version around. After owning one I'm hooked on hatchbacks. For a DD a tune and an intake would be perfect if it truly nets almost 100. I'd look into it though because a lot of those shops like to post crank HP gains.

I told this to [MENTION=239]Turk[/MENTION] the last time I saw him

A3 and new MK7 golf are the same platform and motor, except a3 gets the quattro :nice:

APR tune and intake claims are like 100whp from a cookiecutter tune, check vwvortex

Golfs go from like 14.1 @100 to 13.1 @110 just from the tune on street tires I guess :rofl:
