I agree... VWs are nice cars, but parts are SO expensive for what you get. The cars are even a rip off to begin with... lets spend $35,000 for a car that still uses a torsion beam rear axle, and could get out-handled by a Toyota Echo.

You probably wouldn't hear me repeat this after a ride in my friends APR Stage III Jetta 1.8T... that car is FAAAAAAAST. The 1.8T is an awesome engine.

Scarboroughdub is an unknown quantity at this point
I dont think parts are as expensive as a honda for example if you were to build a motor up for boost turbos cost the same they are not vehicle and cost specific and manifolds also cost in the similar range same as pistons. this also applies to suspensions and so on so when you guys say they are way more expensive i would have to disagree and who says you cant get a vw to handle with some coilovers you can make anything handle.


plus honda's are :supergay:

Bottom end can even be cheaper to build up compared to hondas, since you dont have to sleeve the block, and most of the vw rods/cranks are good for 300-400whp.
