Chip it. I have Wett and could not be happier. K&N air filter, wider exhaust and sportier suspension are worth while too. From there you could rock it any way you want to.

Chip ofcourse would be the best bang for the buck power wise and you will be able to feel the power instantly.

The way I started was a good Shock and Springs setup like Bilsteins and Eibach. Even thought that is not going to give you horsepoer/torque, atleast you will be able to handle your car when the power comes. It is also a lot more fun to drive.

Do a Colarado Air Box Mod, a K&N Filter, and Exhaust, then you will begin to see how a little massaging goes along way with the 1.8T. :beer:

Okay I give up. Not to hijack this thread or anything, but I've searched and searched and cannot seem to find any info on a Colorado Air box mod. What is it? Thread link? Is it just changing out to a cone filter?
