Performance Modifications

As the car is so new here in the US. Anyone see any intakes, exhaust, etc for the 1.6 list them here.

I'm curious to see what aftermarket support this car gets.

Hopefully Roush will be selling some of their aftermarket parts from overseas here.

If the planets align correctly, then I will be able to buy a 1.6L TDI Fiesta. Gotta love them diesels, more air you can get in the better power! No worries about detination, spark timing, octane ratings. Just bigger turbo and bigger injectors and you are set to burn off your tires in no time!

^^ No clue, but that is one of the most fuel effecient options out there and with USA fuel prices going through the roof, it is possible. Plus VW is doing an expensive add campaign right now trying to get American consumers to get out of the train of thought that all diesels are black smoke spewing monsters. Hopefully Americans will realize this is an amazing technollogy and has incredible fuel milage possibilities.

And again, it has awesome power potential :)
