    I've always loved the GTI's and even owned one briefly (a 2007). Have any mod plans for it yet besides the maintenance ones stated?

    I had a 2010 MK6 GTI and a 2012 CC R-Line DSG. Both cars were great. The only headache about the DSG is the 40k service intervals, the parts alone are just ridiculously expensive for what it is, but it's a great transmission. When you get the coil packs, grab the Audi R8 Red Tops, they are much better and last a lot longer.

    Interesting on the Cobb AP. I never really ran into too many people running them, most ran APR or Unitronic. Simple DV upgrade, downpipe and a drop in filter and a stage 2 flash and the car woke up!

    Either way, solid purchase, it's definitely a good amount of car for the money!

    Cobb is relatively new to VW scene. I prefer the versatility that Cobb offers as opposed to fixed guidelines/“stages” and being locked to prescribed parts or digging way deep for travel to a location and tuning on a dyno. I’m still researching, but it’s really looking like Cobb for me.

    I’m definitely planning on the R8 red tops!

    Nothing in stone yet. I know I don’t want to do a hybrid or K04, but deciding on just what I’ll do is a distant thought. I do, however, have a wishlist full of things at Integrated Engineering.

    That's the other beauty, VWVortex is littered with used parts too that are cheap and readily available. So many people mod these and then part out frequently.

    Of course, that is why you’re respected in this community. Hopefully you’ll share some of the VW on here so we can see what you do with it.

    Good to still see you kicking on here.

    I was... But, I can’t deal with all the know-it-all’s, agendas and false info that flys around this forum on a daily basis. So, I’ll just go back to keeping quiet and checking in occasionally.
