What mods do you currently have?

Inatke (ABD Bigbore/Q-flow)
Chip (TT)
Cam (TT)
Exhaust (TT/borla)
Pulleys (Eurosport)
P&P
Golf Front
Badgeless (FK)
SS Break lines
Wheels
Coilovers/Cup-kit (FK or H&R)
Or, your 3/4 of the way to a turbo if you already have exhaust.

Show car!

-Wheels
-Suspension (lowering)
-Body mods
-Stereo

Hey, I say turn the 2.0's into show machines rather than pouring tons of money into creating a mediocre performance machine.

If you don't want to go show car, I say use the cash to get into a newer GTi VR6; just my opinion...

Nothing worse then a car thats all show and has NO go. Do the basic bolt ons at very least! Just my opinion also

I think this term originated when a honda driver attempts to make their car fast.
But I have seen a few VW's that would fit in this class.

Me, I like to have my cake and eat it too!!!

Do whatever you think would help you out the most. If your into speed, go with a turbo or supercharger. If you show, how about wheels, stereo and video, engine swap

If you dont feel like selling the car for something a little fast, my list would be:

-nice set-up suspension maybe coilovers
-catback exhaust
-chip
-intake
-some basic wheels with wheel spacers
-depending on the color, smoked or clear lenses

Something along those lines.

Actually, I think this phrase came from I-6 Camaro's and Rustangs showing up all pretty at the cruises and Drag meets. At least thats where I heard it first. Used to be about 45-60 cars would show up on Friday night at the Albertsons and then go cruise around Amarillo all night just fartin around. Our "escape scenes" were always much cooler than that 2F2F scene with the warehouse.....

What are you looking to get out of the upgrades? Speed, handling, looks, sound, etc? Give us an idea of the direction you are looking for and we should be able to suggest good companies and parts. You should decide what you want to do with the car yourself.

Knowing that it's 120000 miles already, It would probably die out on you with the mods that you are going to put on. I'd stay off the mods and buy a used 1.8T and then just do a chip/exhaust/cai upgrade. This way you will have more hp then the 2.0. Just what I think.
