I have been directed to this forum due to the similarities between my slug bug and the GTI. I have had my bug for one year, am a 1st time VW owner, and have 1 of 600 Launch Edition Turbo Beetles produced for 2012. The engine is in the front and I race in the GS class of SCCA Autocross Solo, but never have any questions answered about modifications to make due to the newness of my car! Specs: 2.0L, 200 hp, 207 lb-ft torque, in-line 4 cylinder, direct injection engine, with DSG transmission, FWD, sport suspension, 19" alloy wheels, and ESC, which can't be turned OFF! Anyone out there race autocross solo that could answer a few questions??
