I have heard and seen things on VW's. I use to have one, some of my friends do. I heard the debate on the 1.8 t, It's harder to increase HP at the cost of money and reliabilty, than the VR6. I don't know who is right. All I know is that I can extract more HP and TQ out of the 1.8 or VR6 VW than a Celica at a lower cost and more reliabilty. VW's are notorious for being reliable, safe, better interiors, and well made. I believe more so than 7th gen Celica's by far. Toyota missed the mark with the 7th gen. It always seemed to me to be a quick production, that blinds you with good looks, to the Acura GSR or even the superior Type R. I'm just wondering, whose head would have rolled at Toyota Japan if they didn't produce a sport compact car that could compeat with the Honda/Acura market. The Celica was on top with Performance briefly, but there is no room for improvement or any one that whats to improve it due to Toyota period. I should have gotten that GTI and by now I would be putting 400 WHP and taking you all to school. This has to be one of the worst Toyotas I ever owned. My family and I bought 4 total including an earlier 92 Celica. Last one I own, and VW, BMW, Porsche, EVO, Acura here I come.
ok duwd VolksWagen is out of the question.. it's a lame ass stupid fucked up car
(sorry for the bad langauge)
In holland it's FULL of VW golf and polo.. they buy it for 5000.. tune it for 20.000 and still they're worthless litle peaces of crap
but the VW Golf and the worst.. the Honda's and Acura's are the worst.. it seems to be a hype to buy a 82 CRX or CIVIC for 3000 and put 20.000 of tuning in and after you're done tuning your engine desides to retire..
so not to big fan of Honda or VW.. Honda = crap and VW = not exclusive (but hey that's around here.. every corner has 2 VW's)
