    again there have been a few that took them off due to excess smoke .
    If you dont do toooooooooooooooo many miles then the 2.0T gives you better options for tuning .
    I,m not just saying that cos I have one BUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol

    just sold my 3.0. Had it nearly 4 years and was very pleased with it. No probnlems with the engine at all in that time. Very quick, but not frantic like the 1.9s.

    Felt it was time to move on however & now have an 09 VXR.
