"This car has been great. The most reliable car I have ever owned. just change the oil and fill 'er up. Very tight in the corners and solid on the straights up to 130 miles per hour. The stock set of tires (Good Year) got very loud as they wore and required re airing frequently even though there were no punctures. the brakes squeeked, but stopped good. I replaced the tires with Firestone firehawk ovals(with only 15000 MI on them) which were quieter and handle great as well. somehow the new tires seemed to quiet the brakes a bit. I have heard that you should only run synthetic oil in this car because of the turbo, and seems to gain a bit of power by installing a K&N air filter. also replace the stock turbo bypoass valve with an aluminum one to give the turbo better consistancy. other than that mine is stock because of the excelent performance. I may consider a chip in the future to gain a few horses, but have hesitated because this car is already fast and I dont need the tickets! I would definately buy it again and wish that VW would make one with all wheel drive. That would complete the package!"
