I think I would like to try a stock '00-'02 SSEi and see how it compares to the stock '01 I test drove.
Now what fun would that be?

Anyone insured can drive it In fact, we can play russian roulette. The person who breaks the tranny gets to buy a new one

Cleveland, Ohio suburbia

It'* a '98 VW GTI VR6. He said that his model was around 170 HP stock, but is modded to around 180-185, perhaps a hair more. He said that even though the newer ones have higher HP'* the older ones shifted better and should help to even the playing field at least somewhat.
