It all depends on how you are going to use the car. I currently have a wide ratio in my MK1A. It was installed years ago when I had a bit more HP and the car was used for Auto-X and as a daily driver. I ran the car hard in those days and the wide ratio was fun. It is down on HP now and my driving is more cruising than stop light racing so I would just as soon have the close ratio. If performance is king, go for it.
