Buy the $1000 spare, start rebuilding the numbers matching one. You’ll have a running vehicle you can enjoy, and an engine you can put together and repair at your own (and your wallet) manageable pace.

Yeah, the 3.6 vr6 definitely takes the cake for that immediate low-end torque (and wookie noises :D ) but i dunno. Seems like throwing in “sport” on something inherently unsporty powertrain-wise seems bad. Then again, i also think the same thing can be said for “turbo” on things without turbos (or ICEs) but i don’t Read more

i don’t understand why they’re putting the gti sized turbo (is20) into the cross sport and leaving the golf r turbo (is38) on the table. Seems like first thing i’d do owning this thing is flash tune to stage 1 to at least match the power near the bigger turbo, but really at the end of the day the ea888 engine shines Read more

I think this will end up being the GT trim front-end for the Golf, GTI will have proper red trimming, LED fog ala the GTE previously seen.

don’t buy big ugga-dugga SUVs if you can’t maneuver a big ugga-dugga SUV.

I love that technically the scirocco is a squashed 3 door golf built on the old architecture and it drives stateside fans that they don’t get it. But when they get the actual 3 door golf no one buys them and they become objects of lust until they’re discontinued.
