Hey congrats on the turbo s...did it come from a dealer in brattleboror vt by chance? It looks like one I checked out up there a while back.

No offense, Cheat, but I hope you have some serious mods in that Snap...because I drove a BLCC which was an auto as a loaner from VW one time, and my car is much faster. I could not believe the acceleration lag in that car...couldn;t even feel the turbo. The S however, I have driven two of them, and a TT...there is some punch there, even if stock!! I made a used car salesman in make a funny noise when I hit the gas in an S one time... :lol: He had no idea it would punch like that...not to mention I think he wet himself a little when the spoiler deployed... ;)
Got plenty of mods in my Snap...you know how I roll Rob. :)

U mean ur JUST learning how to drive stick?! :eek:

BTW, the '03 S had a clutch that was too weak for the increased HP, mine only lasted 16K. They supposedly 'fixed' it with the '04 model.

lol, no i knew the basics before getting the car...pretty much the only way i was allowed to. :lol: but now i've gotta learn how to shift really smoothly and control the beast. lol

mine is a 2002...do you think the clutch will be okay??? it has 33K on it now and seems to be working just fine. :confused:

Sorry, that was a typo, mine was an '02. I seem to remember the service manager telling me that VW was upgrading the clutch on the '03's.
