    Hey, I just recently got my hands on a 2002 Turbo S with 75,000 miles, which had the rear emblem/ trunk latch stolen, and I just can't find one for sale anywhere online. Does anyone know the specific name of this thing and where I can find one online? Thanks
  4. 1.8 Liter Turbo
    I have a 2003 Turbo S.

    Hello there, I am currently buying an 02 Turbo S, ko4, borla exhaust, cold air intake, stage 1+ unitronic tune. Car is making 215 atm, but I would like it to make more.
