A guy 5 houses down from me had a black GTI in his driveway this morning, so you should have another MI owner popping up here soon, hopefully.

I'm in the market for a white GTI right now, but I'm trying to figure out an asking price for a Candy White Package 0 w/ huffsein wheels. I'm in Watervliet, a little down from Holland a little bit, if I may ask, how are the dealers in MI in negotiating for GTIs? I would suspect that they're pretty hard headed. I'm hoping to get $500 under invoice.

davesee, i e-mailed a APR dealer in Grand Rapids and they do the APR stage 1 for $499 with $50 for the install. But get this $50 for a 6 hour preview of the stage 1 ecu upgrade. and than if you like it they waive the $50 install fee. sound good i'm going down Friday. and its $100 cheaper then theAPR website.

Ok you Michigan GTI's, the UPS man dropped off a few goodies today before work. A catless downpipe, Forge diverter, and k&n flat panel filter (still waiting on evoms CAI).

Brought the GTI to my trusty muffler shop to have the DP put on and the First muffler ( resonator) cut off. When i picked it up the first thought i had was that i was glad to save 750$ by not buying a TBE. The stock exhaust minus the resonator flows very well. Not loud at idle ( little louder than stock ) once boost hits the thing growls! It sound badass! Nice spooling sound through exhaust almost like the DP is echoing turbo spool.

I have yet to put on the Forge i'll do it tonight after work, damn 2nd shift. I will tell you guys about it tomorrow.

As for the APR 93 oct ECU upgrade. either Thurs. or Fri. i'll be going to GR so be ready for the report.

OK, i have the APR upgrade!!! and let me tell you it transformed the GTI. the GTI pulls soooo hard! It feels like i'm strapped to a missle. I loved the car before and now I feel like i have to drive it all the time, i mean i never want to get out. Best mod i've ever had on any car, hands down. If your thinking about getting chipped DO IT, its worth ever penny.

the APR dealer in Grand Rapids if very good, great service and the APR tech there is probaly the most performance minded tech i've ever talked to. I would and will go back there again for future mods!

Overall, great shop with kick ass service...and APR speaks for itself.
