Congrats! A nice car, welcome to the VeeDub club, representing Deutschland.

Just curious as to how much this weighs. Mine only has 67kW and 150Nm, weighs 1050kg and is quoted as doing 0-100 in 10.9 seconds...

Holden Barina... whatever it was cheap :)
I'm glad it's not here, cars with dark tint on the rear windows and nothing on the fronts look stupid, IMO. Plus, the hot Aussie summers mean a dark tint is very useful for preventing sun damage to the interior.

The thing about the Mk4 Golfs is that that 2.0L engine is a bit weak for its size. After all, 85kw/170Nm is the same power/torque I get from my Telstar, which has the same size engine, and is ten years older. Probably a far better torque curve, though.

basically it rockets up to 70ish and then seems to lack for the rest, im hoping a new exhaust will help with the top end...basically my side tints illegal then the front windscreen is tinted at what is normally legal limit for the sides is, but in SA you cant have tint on the front. normally this set up wont be done for you, but cash can make a lot happen so :p
