I agree entirely that a factory turbo is a great place to start from when tuning a car, but having a good friend who's a big VW nut, I can tell you that he's a little off as to the abilities of his car Seriously, the more recent GTIs are _hefty_ for their size. I think the big appeal of the 1.8T in a golf the ease of the chip upgrade and then the general fit and finish of the interior. The electrical system is another thing altogether

But honestly, the Golf/GTI platform has a couple important limitations -- it's FWD and it has a comparatively tiny wheelbase. It can be a rocket, but it's not my kind of rocket
