VEHICLE STORY

So Why The GTi? The VW GTi To Was A Perfect Candidate For A Daily Driver. Being A Technician Ive Worked On Tons Of Vw’s And At This Point Im Very Familiar With The Audi/VW 1.8t. With That Being Said, This Car Showed Up On Craigslist As A Mechanic Special. I Went To See The Car And To My Surprise The Car Still Ran And Drove So The Deal Was Made. The Car Needed Some Love And Care, But Nothing Crazy. Once Fixed I Purchased A Bigger Turbo And A Started To Tune The Car. The Goal Was To Make It A Great Daily Driver, And Still Have Some Power And Handle Good And With The Right Mods The Little 1.8T Can Make Good Power. Also The Car Handles Super Well. So Good Power, Handling, And Good MPG Are What I Got This Car For.
