Like I have posted in other topics, I have never owned a compact car, nor have I ever owned anything other than a GM vehicle until now. My normal car magazine of choice is Car and Driver (which the GTI made into the top ten best car list for 2006). My wife was at the store the other day and saw Sport Compact's Feb. 2007 issue with a special on tuner 2006 GTI's. I am not much for souping up a daily driver car, but after reading this issue, I was astounded by the potential these cars have. Some were putting out upwards of 380 wheel hp and making it to 60mph in under 4.5 secs. If any of you want to drool, I would suggest reading this article. They don't give a whole lot of tech info about what was done to the cars, but they give some pretty good objective as well as subjective results. Has anyone else read this article?
