198BHP vs 211BHP 2009/2010

Post by gogglez »

Hello Guys,

I'm looking to buy a used scirocco as i've loved these cars since I saw the first one back in 2008!

After looking online, I cant seem to find one with the exact specs that im looking for which are the following:

White or Blue
Pan Roof
Full Leather
Black Rims
2.0 TSi GT 2010 onwards
Below 50k Mileage

I have found plenty 2009 models that fit my description but it shows on paper a 13BHP difference and im a bit of a power freak so the more the merrier!

My question is... is the BHP a true reflection on power or just a number they decided to add on the autotrader website?

I would have assumed that these engines were exactly the same with the same internal spec.

Would you go for the 2009 or the 2010+ model if you were in my position?

Apologies if this has been posted in the wrong section!

They use the same engines as the Golf GTI of the same era. As far as I'm aware there is very little difference between them physically. There may be a small difference in fuel pressure, injectors and map.

Tuning wise, I'd start with as much power as possible and work from there ;) Loads of tuning options available though, Revo or APR are favourites and charge ~£500 for a stage 1 remap which will give 250+bhp.

The other differences in the car lie internally - different heater controls, steering wheel and stereo etc. Personally, I prefer the later models.
