Few factory cars can claim better acceleration times with an automatic trans- mission. Those that can are priced in the six-figure range, well out of the reach of most people. Pricing, however, isn’t the only problem with these cars. Another larger problem is that in most instances, it is down-right idiotic to modify them. That poses a huge issue with MAXsters the world over, and this must be why we love our Volkswagens. With awesome potential from the factory, they are great canvasses to begin building an automotive masterpiece, that is, of course, if you purchase your car with a manual transmission.
