Just ordered a Golf GTI, coz of the huge discount they are offering now for Year End Sales(?) Actual reason is its great handling & reliability of the iconic hot hatch "GTi"

Seen some comments on Apr, Revo & Dimsport tuning of the Mk6 by the seniors. I wonder if these will void the VW warranty? If not, will the senior kindly pm the contact for me to do the same please? Thnak you.

Life is too short to be thinking of warranty.
That being said, if you are worried check out those racechip pro piggy back tuning boxes thingy.
U can remove if u have any warranty claim and unlike remaps, it's 100% undetectable.

Thanks, Zeo, that crosses my mind too. But, heard that piggy back easily "learnt" by onboard computer, & got immune in due course. Is that true?

Thought I'd posted, din see it, now post again.

Took delivery of the GTI 2 days ago, still hasnt get the hang of it yet. My daughter fondly labelled it as the "Black beauty". Performance is so so compare to rivals in its class, but, its handling is just incrediblly clinical. Sweet trouble ironed out 6speed DSG. Truely a driver car. Immensely enjoyable!

Now has the itch to mod with Racechip, any pro from fellow sifu?

I just paid booking for the Passat Sport today. Anticipating delivery. I was sold by the driving experience. My honest opinion, don't consider Camry. Nothing against Toyota. But this is really different.

Once you experienced with european car handling, you hardly return for asian made vehicles.

87k. I hope the new owner takes care if it. It has never been filled RON 95 before. Has always been 97 or once a while V Power Racing fuel. Engine oil only semi synthetic or fully synthetic. The new owner sure mod the car. Less than 70k mileage. VW informed me expecting AP arriving soon for me to take delivery. Lovely. I needed a new family car. Whilst the CC is considered better looking by many, I think the Passat design is less loud. My first conti. My dad has driven Volvo his whole life. From 244 all the way to 850. Now he is driving Korean. LOL..

In any case, loving the car so fa:

I dont mind ordering and shipping from overseas if anyone knows a reputable online dealer or seller.

Is shipping gonna cost a bomb?

My cousin brother is bringing in Japan made rims to Malaysia. I will share you his selling thread later on
