This is my first VR6 and my second Volkswagon Golf. Coming from a 2.0L 8v Golf GL, later turboed with 10psi (220whp/212lbstq) was not a big difference in performance, but dropping a turbo in this V6 would throw out something like 310/320 hps at 10psi. Considering that no engine work (aka forged pistons & rods) is necessary until 20+ psi of boost, is easy to imagine the stock potential of this car, only a low comp. Head gasket is necessary to top out at 350/400 hp on stock internals. No other… Read Full Review

This Volkswagen Golf GTi VR6 is an all round compact pocket rocket sports car for a very reasonable price. This car is very deceiving to the untrained eye. The lack off traction can be corrected by puting on a set of high quality performance tyres. Looks amazing on the road and at car shows. This car was designed with all aspects of a car enthusiasts lifestyle and driving style in mind. VW was thinking when they built this car. Go VW go, give us another. My next car will be a golf R32… Read Full Review

The Volkswagen Golf GTi VR6 is the proverbial wolf in sheeps clothing. The V6 howl under acceleration and snarl under a trailing throttle are sweet sounds for those who rate auditory enjoyment highly in their driving experience. Immaculately kept by a fussy owner from new, this car was fitted with a full stainless steel exhaust system and aftermarket shocks and springs before I bought it.
This car will joyfully trounce even the most ardent jap-tuning boy racer in its wake whilst also seeing… Read Full Review

I have owned my 1994 Volkswagen Golf GTi VR6 5-door sports car for almost 4 years now. First car I've ever held onto for that long, which says something straight away!
It's been unbelievably reliable for a "hot hatch" of this age. The only problems I've had are with the ABS (Pump fault) and some rusting on the tailgate (a common problem on pre-1996 Mk3s). Other than that it's been perfect.
The car put an ear-to-ear grin on my face the first time I drove it. And it still does, courtesy of… Read Full Review

Needed a fast, reliable, easy and cheap to run 5dr family car. But these cars seemed not to exist without having to sacrifice one thing or the other, until I found the VW Golf VR6! What a car this is! Having owned this car for 9 trouble-free months I decided to fit lowered shocks & springs. The kit is G-Max, lowered 35mm I just wish i'd done it when I bought it, it has transformed the car into a new level. This with a jetex exhaust and panel filter has made quite a differrence also drill about… Read Full Review
