Volkswagen's GTI, Golf, and Jetta are long-time favorites among sport-compact performance enthusiasts. With engines ranging from the 2.0 liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder to the 1.8 liter turbo 4 to the VR6, the Mk III and Mk IV generations (1993-2004) offer tuners a wealth of opportunities. This book turns these opportunities into realities, from deciding which vehicle to buy, to keeping it running in tip-top condition, to enhancing the performance and appearance of your VW. Focusing on the engine, wheels and tires, suspension, body kits, interiors, and more, each project includes straightforward instruction along with details about the necessary parts, cost, time, and skill.
If you want to get the biggest bang for your VW buck, this book is your road map.
