Re: [gti-vr6] TFS

How about a compromise of sorts? Buy a GTI, and add a Quaiffe. The Quaiffe
should elimnate the TFS, as the part that breaks goes away (right?). One
of these should cost about $1000 and a few hundred to install I would
guess. You'll also have the added benift of bad-ass performance. If you're
thinking of spending another $7k on an Audi, why not? Another option is
the Passat, of course.
