I think you are all giving the GTI too much credit. It has like 15lbs more torque but weighs about 500 pounds more. I think it is probably a little faster, but DEFINITELY in the same class. I have driven both and have a friend with one...not too different at all, even if the GTI has a slight straight line edge. Bolt ons should take a stock GTI no problem, or even a better driver. If the GTI is chipped, intake, etc, etc, well, that's different. By the way, a stock VR6 is NOT 1.5 seconds faster 0-60 than a stock RS.
