    "Edmunds says: More horsepower is always good." That's a pretty broad statement. Care to qualify that?

    "Edmunds says: More horsepower is always good."

    Problem is it is way overdue. I had a MkV GTI in 2006 with 200hp. If Audi can offer more then so can VW. The Mk VII GTI is not due until spring of 2014 with 217 (or 227 Power Pkg). I would wait until then as the 10hp mentioned here is rather expensive for just 10hp. Both versions of the MkVII will be cheaper than 30k by several thousands.

    .2 tenths faster to 60 from 10 hp?? Not unless there was a torque increase too.
    Did they switch to the Audi version of the 2.0T that gets 258 lbs ft of torque instead of 207?
    If that's the case, yes, I can see .2 being shaved off the 0-60
    If not, 10 hp alone would hardly be noticeable.
