I'll try and kick things off with the Dahlback Golf RSI..

to me the design is ingenious...Dahlback is one smart cookie.

 

AWD Equipped with a inline 5 cylinder engine fed by an Audi IMSA turbocharger (which apparently is huge)....no room for the radiator up front because of the larger sized engine, turbo, plumbing, and intercooler(s) so he mounted it in the back tailgate w/ fans and an air scoop on the roof to catch air to blow thru the radiator when the car is in motion. Wow.

the dahlback gti has 900hp! i have a vid of it doing a 4wd burnout

 

vws are dope but kinda costly to mod and power wise you are somewhat limited. ive got a 2001 gti 1.8 turbo with hella smoked tails and black vw badges, goin stealth. i need some $$ to get some fuckin power mods but im getting raped from insurance.

all i can say is....

 

fuck a corrado....i swear to god. i feel like i drive a bentley every time this thing goes into the shop. i honestly dont have the slightest clue why this thing has such a cult following.....its like the VW engineers got drunk and let some crackhead design a car for them. even the fucking "VW only" shops wont work on these things!!!

 

dont get me wrong...im still buying VW....but the next time around the damn thing is going to have a warranty and the minute it expires is the minute i sell it....my volkswagen reminds me of having a supermodel girlfriend who keeps getting drunk and wrecking your apartment....i fucking hate the thing but i cant bring myself to drop it....
