The only mod at this time is the 17" VW "Arigos" wheels and the 225/45 Pilot Super Sports that I had leftover from my previous VW. Oh, and I removed the clutch pedal "helper" spring. I may eventually go for a mild tune, but that's about it. The wagon is my workhorse and the 86 will be my plaything. You can guess which one will get more of my attention.

That's a cool new VW - I haven't seen many around here. I am curious what percentage of them are stick? Manual transmission drivers are getting few and far between nowadays!

Congratulations on the new ride.
I know I've seen numbers but I can't say for sure. These cars were somewhat more popular in Canada but not here. The DSG was quite popular and with a tune, is supposed to be very formidable. But I had to have it in stick!

I gotta do that and the CDV removal. I hear just getting the JB4 should yield you about 220+ HP. I need to settle some insurance and medical bills first before I can buy any toys
