    Few Coupe Questions...

    Hi,

    Well i did have my heart set on a MK4 GSI for my new car, but after browsing i seen a few coupe turbo's for alot cheaper than the GSI's, so i got a few questions regarding the coupe turbos

    reliable?
    good on fuel?

    is it the same engine as the gsi Z20LET i believe?
    are the capeable of running the same power as the gsi's

    i've seen some coupe turbos on pistonheads for around £3,000, but they had high mileagle, what is the average price for a decent coup turbo with a relatively low mileage

    Cheers

    Same engine, same power, same gearbox, same MPG, same reliability, same ability to run whatever power a GSI can.

    The coupe turbo also has a higher top speed because they are more aerodynamic.

    Coupe turbo for the win

    Gsi, just another hatchback with boy racer styling

    Coupe, more of a sporty look and less in ya face

    Only messing GSI people, love them but coupe definitely floats my boat more so
