What mods should I get??? :3
>>
>>19129481
The stripes add more downforce to the front tires don't remove them.
>>
>>19129477
fuck no. you could've gotten a much nicer car for the same price.

bumper has those "lovely" stripes too. What on earth motivated someone to do this.

>>19129498
Besides the downforce on the front tires... maybe I'll keep the stripes.
Also I noticed a clear vinyl coat on the front of it. Is that actually good? It's OVER the top of the stripes near the front bumper. So once I delete the stripes I'll need to tear that thing off too, I guess.

>autobahn
Why do you always need those horrible cheesy additional names for European cars over there?
>>
Why would you get a "performance" car with 4 doors? What are you a cuck?
>>
Only if you got the DSG
Vw manual shifter feel is awful
Otherwise good choice, kinda overpriced but decent quality and very handsome
>>
>>19129965
They don't sell the 3 door version in burgerstan

Cringe, american marketing is painfull.
>>
>>19130310
So get a different car, it's not that hard
>>
>>19129495
A stripe delete
>>
>>19129477
Paint rest of the car black and leave tiny Silver stripe in the middle
>>
personally would've gotten the scirocco, better looking and faster stock
>>

>>19129477
Yeah, you did ok as long as the discount was decent. DSG > manual. Good summer tires is your first mod. Car is amazing with tunes and FBO. Don't listen to the bench racers and busriders talk about a vehicle they've never owned or driven. Do your maintenance on time every time and the unreliability memes will stay just that.

t. actual MK7 GTI owner
>>
>>19129477
shouldn't the GTI already have the performance package?

i don't get it
>>
>>19131970
Perf. Package adds LSD and bigger brakes, along with a worthless 10hp bump. It is worth it for the LSD and brakes alone.
>>
>>19131975
but why not put those on to begin with if it's the fuckin GTI

vag is confusing
>>
>>19132085
They did just that starting with the mk 7.5s.
>>
>>19129495
>What mods should I get??? :3
something to stop the understeer
>>
>>19132085

Because they want to upsell you while advertising a lower price.
>>
>>19131967
Why is DSG > manual?
>>
>>19129495
>good tires
>suspension mods (coilovers/springs? dont know how the ride quality is on the 2016 GTI stock)
>upgrayedd brakes (bigger rotors + stainless braided brake lines + better pads)
>get a vinyl wrap to protect your paint
>then maybe get a tune and put on some go-fast bits
In that order
>>
>>19130307
>>19131967
Where is this m'may coming from? I would much rather have a 3rd pedal than a DSG that "feels nicer when it shifts"
>>
>>19129477
how much are you paying?
>>
>>19131975
>what is starting price
>>
>>19132843
dsg has faster acceleration, but honestly i dont really care, manual is better for long term ownership simply because a)cheaper to repair and diagnose a problem b) more fun to ride once you are comfortable with the car c) you are the one in control at all times, no lag or something like that before it actually downshifts for higher rpm

Curious too. Amerishits are this dumb to fall for childish marketing? Remember when Golf mk4 came out and had Wolfsburg edition. Fucking kek.
>>
Timing chain on these shit the bed because of LOL vw quality timing chain tensioner. Absolute junk cars, I like them because dumb fucks like OP buy them, and then once things go wrong they come to my shop and I make bank.

Fuck VW, and fuck Euro cars in general.
>>
>>19129477
Not my cup of tea, anon, but I hope you enjoy it. Don't let people give you shit about stripes. They add 8 HP per stripe, ya know?
>>
>>19133684
Because VW offers nothing over comparable models made by better car companies, so they try to make it seem more appealing to the average person who doesn't give a shit about cars.
>>
>>19129477
Looks like someone squished a minivan
>>
It is 2018 and people still go out of their way to buy Volkswagen junk? Holy shit, you got meme'd my friend.

VW makes shit tier cars, why would you get one over a civic? You pay a premium but in reality it is an awful car with absolute shit tier quality control. Literally any hatch would have been the better choice you dumb fucking retard.
>>
>>19130945
this
theyre too narrow
>>
>>19129477
First off, why didn't you get the R?

2ndly, I want an R just for snow drifting. I know subaru is king, but for some reason, I always felt the Volkswagen R32 was fucking beautiful in the snow. Especially when it is sideways at 50 mph around empty late night highways.

>>19132966
Have you driven a VW? Changing gears in any of them feels like pushing a rod through a bucket of mud and rocks
Or perhaps you just haven't driven a car with good Shifter feel like a honda so you don't know what it feels like
>>
>>19130566
in yurope you get crap like st-line

>>19132085
