|turbovation||It's a sweet looking car..I just hope they aren't assembled entirely in Mexico or we're gonna have some problems! I heard like 80% of the new VWs are assembled in Germany....that right?|

I had an 01 GTi with the VR6 and it was a POS. The timing chain guides failed and allowed the chain to jump with 11k on the odo. Crashed the valves, and cracked all 6 pistons. It was still under warrenty but I got hasseled the whole time. I lost alot of interest in the newer ones after that. I'm way more into the Mk1s and Mk2s.
I still have an 84 GTi with a BSI Racing 8v in it thats all hopped-up. I'm not sure of the whp but it will beat my 83 GTi with a 16v swap. Definatly a great autocross chassis.
If anyone has interest the 84 is for sale, I need the room.

|92dxman||It looks like a nice car but would benefit very well from a tdi. The 2.0T in there doesn't sound like a bad option. Gas mileage in a car that small is certainly nothing to write home about either. Anybody else besides me have the urge to import a Rabbit from South Africa?|

|WitchCitySVT||I love the origanal rabbits. I have a lot of friends with them. Do a 1.8t swap on one and you'll smoke anything! Check this out :http://videos.streetfire.net/search/...32378AD619.htm .|

|EggYolkBill||The original US Rabbit was a POS. The dropped the name because of it's association with a lack of quality. I remember driving in a diesel model and out of nowhere the car would bog down and a plume of black smoke would start pouring out the exhaust. This was a common problem.|
