I also enjoy driving my Jetta and MK3 Golf around the backroads. There's no way our Corrolla could handle the hard driving I do there. All I'd need are some sponsors and a navigator
!

Did you say 1.8 turbo gas motor? Damn. You're bound to have endless fun with your new car. Body kits will be hard to find, and any you may happen to find could run you a few bucks. Performance mods, however, should come with ease once you settle on what particular modifications you're looking to make (exhaust, air, engine, etc). Welcome!

welcome. You can look on strictly foreign for body kits as well as ABD. Alos try nopi. I know i can't beleive i sadi ti but they do have some.All mk2's use the same front bumper and side skirts. The rear bumper needs to be for a jetta(they're all the same). But like stated above none of them are very cheap. What turbo kit is on your car and how much boost are you running. Is it stoc otherwise?
