One could argue the $1,500 I spent on going stage 2 in the last month was fixing the power and tcu tuning...
It actually does. Plus it gives you better gas mileage.

Don't worry though. I bought my MK7.5 with the presumption "Oh, I won't have to put anything into it, I can just carry over everything from my MK7 that I want", and yet I've still managed to put enough money into it where I could have bought an overpriced MK8 R...
That's why I bought the mk8 GTI. I had $10k of mods and maintenance planned for a car that was worth $19k, that already had $6000 into it.

Only plans for the mk8 are autocross wheels/tires, RSB (wish I'd swapped the old one), maybe an axle back, and a tune.

I can swap tune on and off the car, run GS for autocross and have a pretty quick street car with very few mods.

"Only plans"

Dangerous words.

Don't forget an intercooler. You're in FL bro, you need that.
