0:04:19.680,0:04:27.120intercooler oil cooler a bigger radiator, 0:04:24.240,0:04:28.400yeah so these were my my main mod, 0:04:28.400,0:04:32.800basically what i wanted was a daily, 0:04:32.800,0:04:38.160with minimal down time and some fun in, 0:04:38.160,0:04:41.440i almost ran over a squirrel oh, 0:04:41.440,0:04:44.720okay sorry uh you’re saying yes so, 0:04:44.720,0:04:50.880my mods were focused on uh cooling, 0:04:48.400,0:04:52.400holding mods okay not not so much on, 0:04:50.880,0:04:54.400power i wasn’t going for, 0:04:52.400,0:04:56.880the kind of power that most folks were, 0:04:54.400,0:05:00.160gonna go for stage 2 or 63, 0:04:56.880,0:05:03.520okay so i was focusing on, 0:05:00.160,0:05:05.600reliability and drivability, 0:05:03.520,0:05:06.960understood maybe uh do you mind like, 0:05:05.600,0:05:09.759just sharing some of the more, 0:05:06.960,0:05:10.000prominent mods on this car oh okay the, 0:05:10.000,0:05:15.840prominent mods uh stage one, 0:05:13.120,0:05:16.400definitely just to optimize the engine, 0:05:16.400,0:05:19.680again okay intercooler so right now this, 0:05:18.880,0:05:23.199car is pushing out, 0:05:19.680,0:05:26.560300 i would give it, 0:05:23.199,0:05:30.479uh modest 280 horsepower but, 0:05:26.560,0:05:32.800i think it should be a little more okay, 0:05:30.479,0:05:34.320i mean we went for a dino before i think, 0:05:32.800,0:05:37.919it turned out about 280, 0:05:34.320,0:05:39.84030 okay and then uh yeah sorry here,

0:05:46.080,0:05:49.919handling and cooling cooling being the, 0:05:49.919,0:05:54.160handling being the next so if i had a, 0:05:54.160,0:05:57.950i had to put in order it would be the, 0:06:00.240,0:06:07.840and intake radiator, 0:06:04.840,0:06:08.880intercooler and the rest will be on, 0:06:08.880,0:06:14.960you know robust full-size, 0:06:11.919,0:06:18.040lower control arms links everything, 0:06:14.960,0:06:19.600online suspension okay okay, 0:06:19.600,0:06:23.360yeah tell us like what do you like about, 0:06:23.360,0:06:27.840oh the the first thing that comes to, 0:06:25.120,0:06:29.120mind is uh drivability you will not find, 0:06:27.840,0:06:32.400a kind of handling in, 0:06:29.120,0:06:35.440any other cars even even in stock form, 0:06:32.400,0:06:39.440the handling of a volkswagen bbc, 0:06:35.440,0:06:42.880is a lot pronounced sweeter, 0:06:39.440,0:06:43.500and more fun compared to your regular, 0:06:44.800,0:06:48.800yeah actually i’m just driving around, 0:06:48.800,0:06:54.800like the corners here not going too fast, 0:06:51.840,0:06:55.759yeah quite planted yes and the steering, 0:06:54.800,0:06:59.120is quite light also, 0:06:55.759,0:07:01.360for car that’s so sporty okay one thing, 0:06:59.120,0:07:03.039i did about the suspension is i got it, 0:07:03.039,0:07:06.240so it’s kind of optimized for the way i, 0:07:06.240,0:07:10.880drive it putting the weight where i need, 0:07:10.880,0:07:14.160getting the preload done up yeah, 0:07:14.160,0:07:19.919okay and then what do you dislike, 0:07:20.960,0:07:26.400it’s a volkswagen i mean the regular, 0:07:24.000,0:07:28.319things come out like reliability, 0:07:26.400,0:07:30.160which is what i’m trying to prevent but, 0:07:30.160,0:07:35.280so far no main issues i mean, 0:07:33.199,0:07:38.240there was a thermostat housing but that, 0:07:35.280,0:07:40.319was common among the higher performance, 0:07:38.240,0:07:42.400volkswagen engines so it was to be, 0:07:40.319,0:07:42.960expected yeah the handling is very, 0:07:46.479,0:07:50.960quite a lot of effort to put the, 0:07:50.960,0:07:54.560so the difference is very big is it from, 0:07:54.560,0:07:59.039now it’s you could pretty much drive, 0:07:56.720,0:08:00.960your eyes closed i want to pull it, 0:07:59.039,0:08:02.160yeah very easy to drive and very fun as, 0:08:02.160,0:08:05.280and this steering wheel reminds me of, 0:08:03.360,0:08:07.680the volkswagen yeah the, 0:08:05.280,0:08:08.720the main reasons because i do a lot of, 0:08:07.680,0:08:11.759daily driving which, 0:08:08.720,0:08:13.599explains my very high mileage so i mean, 0:08:11.759,0:08:16.400i needed something to keep me, 0:08:13.599,0:08:18.000focused on the road okay so then i think, 0:08:16.400,0:08:20.000if a car is fun to drive, 0:08:18.000,0:08:21.520you just enjoy yeah that’s true that’s, 0:08:21.520,0:08:24.879so let’s say you know someone is looking, 0:08:24.879,0:08:28.400or volkswagen in general yeah do you, 0:08:26.560,0:08:31.680have any advice for them, 0:08:28.400,0:08:33.120my best advice to new owners coming from, 0:08:33.120,0:08:38.320whatever thoughts you had about that, 0:08:34.479,0:08:38.320japanese car throw it out the window, 0:08:38.640,0:08:44.080well a volkswagen-based vehicle is a, 0:08:41.839,0:08:46.160truly different platform altogether, 0:08:44.080,0:08:47.360i mean whatever you expect of your, 0:08:47.360,0:08:50.880you won’t find it on a volkswagen, 0:08:51.040,0:08:56.800a japanese car is more focused towards, 0:08:54.640,0:08:58.399daily reliability getting you from point, 0:08:58.399,0:09:04.560for a volkswagen based car, 0:09:01.519,0:09:07.040it’s getting you a to b in the most fun, 0:09:07.040,0:09:10.959okay maybe do you mind just sharing a, 0:09:09.040,0:09:12.240bit about some people who are looking to, 0:09:10.959,0:09:13.200get volkswagen right they are, 0:09:12.240,0:09:14.880very concerned about you know, 0:09:13.200,0:09:16.240maintenance and reliability you have, 0:09:16.240,0:09:22.720maintenance wise it isn’t much, 0:09:19.360,0:09:25.839any much different from any japanese car, 0:09:22.720,0:09:28.640i mean i’m most of you guys who, 0:09:25.839,0:09:29.920come from a japanese car here people say, 0:09:29.920,0:09:33.120cost might be more expensive not, 0:09:33.120,0:09:37.200because everything you hear is based on, 0:09:35.120,0:09:39.519somebody’s talk to somebody, 0:09:37.200,0:09:41.200do your own research go around ask, 0:09:39.519,0:09:42.880people who actually own one, 0:09:41.200,0:09:45.360yeah they are very important yeah and, 0:09:42.880,0:09:48.720then you’ll get the true picture of, 0:09:45.360,0:09:50.720owning one okay okay but even do you, 0:09:50.720,0:09:53.920i i also came from a japanese car okay, 0:09:53.920,0:10:00.959it uh actually my car is quite rare it, 0:09:57.040,0:10:03.760uh the mazda cx-7 is the 2.3 turbo, 0:10:00.959,0:10:04.000oh so yeah i think it’s you literally, 0:10:04.000,0:10:07.200see it on the road yeah yeah the one is, 0:10:07.200,0:10:12.720okay about the stock 230 over house oh, 0:10:10.320,0:10:15.760so it’s like the forester of them, 0:10:12.720,0:10:17.680that one i tuned it up to 290. so uh, 0:10:15.760,0:10:18.000yeah but reliability really had a lot of, 0:10:18.000,0:10:22.640so i changed this actually and so far um, 0:10:20.720,0:10:24.000no no no complaints really no complaints, 0:10:22.640,0:10:26.560how long have you enjoyed the car, 0:10:24.000,0:10:27.120very much okay your rs245 has you’ve, 0:10:27.120,0:10:32.800owning it uh you’ve only for quite a, 0:10:28.880,0:10:32.800while so about a year or one year yeah, 0:10:37.519,0:10:41.519very fun car to drive overall it’s very, 0:10:41.519,0:10:46.079okay do you think it’s value for money, 0:10:44.079,0:10:47.440oh definitely yeah, 0:10:46.079,0:10:49.120why are actually selling points right, 0:10:47.440,0:10:50.640yeah so one of the key selling points is, 0:10:49.120,0:10:54.399like the the bang for buck, 0:10:50.640,0:10:57.040everybody is always on it uh and, 0:10:54.399,0:10:57.680i think it won some awards also uh yeah, 0:10:57.680,0:11:02.000yeah i think the you in europe also they, 0:11:01.040,0:11:04.079won some awards in, 0:11:02.000,0:11:05.360korea unfortunately um i think in some, 0:11:04.079,0:11:07.760countries it’s not really, 0:11:05.360,0:11:08.800um well known yet yeah so hopefully like, 0:11:11.839,0:11:14.959i’m still i’m seeing more and more, 0:11:20.800,0:11:25.120yeah and and basically it’s you know, 0:11:25.120,0:11:29.279i think i don’t really think there’s, 0:11:26.640,0:11:32.399much difference except for the batch, 0:11:29.279,0:11:34.000yeah yeah some trivia wise there are, 0:11:32.399,0:11:35.200actually some seed models made in the, 0:11:35.200,0:11:41.600oh okay one of them is the ethica repeat,
