    But what really is the main difference? As i will be modding either of them to around 350 with hybrid or mayb bigger it would be a mint 8l low mileage or abused motorway miles on a 8p? sooo hard

    Comparing oranges and Apples? Apart from the namesake, they are 2 different cars.

    8L is classic and butch, but with performance of the late 90's. 8P, modern understated, more power, quicker, and better handling out the box!

    What exactly is it you are after in a car? If it's the drive and handling, I'd go 8P. If it's more a looks thing, I'd go 8L. Yes, you can make an 8L handle a bit better by throwing money at the suspension, but it will cost you a bit more to get anything near the power of a TFSI unit of the 8P.

    what about an 8L with the turbo from an 8P?

    That would be pretty cool

    8p as for very little money you get the 350bhp you so crave! If you want 350bhp from an 8l it will most likely cost you the difference of an 8l to an 8p!
