Let us know how you get on as the CS could well be the high water mark for GTi's given what a minger the mk8 Golf has turned out to be.

@Titchy, what spec is your car engine and suspension wise? It'd be interesting to know what the baseline is for your comparisons and how close it gets, both in terms of actual achievement but possibly more importantly subjective feel.
