Whereas the styling of the add-on parts of Oettinger's Scirocco is noticeably sporty
yet not ostentatious, the wheels attract more attention. Especially when the 20 inch
set is ordered. Besides smaller rims, engine tuning is offered too. The increase
rates for the 1.4 and the 2.0 petrol engines are exactly as high as Abt's.
(See feature below).
But, Oettinger say they will come out with further upgrades. Highest
level could be a 350hp version. This will also be achiev-
ed by additional improvements
of the hardware such as enhanc-
ed cooling, overworked crank machanism and adapted exhaust system.
Adjustable chassis and high-performance brakes are going to
K W S u s p e n s i o n
offer lowerings springs as well as thread chassis.
There are three versions of the latter. They differ
in adjustment options. Only the height can be set with the most simple version
whilst ride characteristics could be adjusted with the other
ones too. Lowering of the springs is 20mm, which
is noticeable. Enthusi-
asts on the other hand might prefer the adjustable suspensions
wich enables up to 45mm less!

Besides add-on parts, 4-pipe rear muffler and lowering springs, the
long-established house has wheels of up to 19 inch on stock. Also engine
tuning is gettable at the launch of VW's compact sports coupe. The power
of the 1.4 liter TSI engine increases to remarkable 200hp, from 160!
The 2.0l turbo diesel, which has 140hp as standard, generates 170 after
the treatment. At a later date, the 2.0 TSI gets extra ponies too. 40
are planed, which would rise output to 240hp. And to cope with that, a sports
braking system with larger disks could be ordered as well.
