I own a rare colored one ,Onix like charcoal jetta 94,it the best car in this world ,i would not trade it for any car,Not a Lambo NOTHING.3 gear is the strong hold ,mutch like v-tecs 3 gear,although the Honda revs harder and faster the 6 cylinders shoot you out the blocks and run thru km/h like nothing.When your goin 120 or 140 km /h and you put the foot down it starts pulling all over again.Most definitly a Highway King and if your gonna out run it on the high way u beter have something...

I swapped this 1996 Highline for a caravanette and since then I've been in love. The engine is as smooth as oil - it doesn't make the exterior noise of so many 'hot-hatchback' but leaves them quietly behind. It's seating and cabin are a delight and I've driven it over 500 miles and got out not in the least tired. I've met some corners on roads I didn't know and thought 'Oh, oh!' but it feels glued to the road. It has never failed to start in the four years I've had it and the only major work... (read more)

Fast and powerful, nice to drive, good features. Very juicy to run, 18 MPG average. Part are expensive, car is front heavy as engine weighs so much. Would not buy another unless I won the lotto. Bought a V6 4motion after this and sold this to. Too juicy on fuel and parts are too much.
Best part was the sound of the engine at high revs! :-)
Hated the running costs ;-(

Fast as you like. The Volkswagen Golf VR6 is very very reliable. It looks amazing and drives just as well! Easy to get parts for even for a 16 year old car! (In my case) If something does go wrong then the cost can be quite bad if you go to a VW dealer. Gas guzzler. Overall and amazing car and if I think I'll drive this one to death. If this one died on me then I wouldn't think twice about buying another. (read more)

1995 M reg 2.9 model. Had the car for 6 months or so. Paid £900 with no MOT. Took a gamble and have been chuffed to bits since. Car now owes me about £2000 including all mods. I just love driving this car. Its quick, holds the road, (although the torque steer can be edgy) and is always effortless on motorways or backroads. it always entertain. A must try for all hot hatch lovers. (read more)

You havent grown up without owning a VR6, its like a introduction to sports cars. I drive my car everywhere, Its not as bad as everyone makes it sound. I drive my car on weekends and no words can describe how good it really is.
Buy one, they are cheaper than buying a M3, SL or some group 17 -20 car, only difference is price and perhaps no sat nav.
Who needs that when you can pick up a VR6 Highline for £2000 (read more)

The VW Golf VR6 is quick, and cheaper than most Sports hatchback you can buy nowadays.
I tend to overtake rather be overtaken. That says it all! Definetly buy one. I have a BMW M3 and decided to buy a VR6 for my run around. Trust me its worth it. (read more)

I have owned my VR6 for only a short period of time but I have fallen inl ove with it. Black 5 door, twin headlamp conversion, decked on a set of 17" Wolfrace Koyoto's, induction kit, up-rated fuel regulator and re-mapped it truly is the dog big dangleys. Wouldn't trade it for anything in the world, had 150 out of it and she still had some pull in her. V Dub all the way, why would you want a piece of jap stuff when you can have some euro muscle?

I personally think from reading all these comments that you lot have way too much cash spare and don't forget a car is only quick if you can drive it properly. My VR6 is chipped, cammed has an induction kit and it's a Golf and you're right, the suspension is rubbish but a set of Konis or something like that sorts this out and uprated anti roll bars help. I have a full Remus exhaust system I bought all of this stuff because I like it. I get the feeling some of the other people making these... (read more)

Just been reading some reviews on here, the Volkswagen Golf VR6 is getting a little long in the tooth these days but lets not get silly, it still holds it's own. Slower than a lot of modern hatchbacks? or a high performance TDi? I think you must be talking about a different car! Volkswagen Flagship, faster than the model that replaced it due to the lack of good running gear, aka 4x4. I'd buy an r32 in a flash because I'd stand a chance of keeping it on the road without breaking my arm. I've... (read more)

My friend just bought a mk5 GTI - beautiful, 200 bhp, black with nice alloys and interior, BUT it does not look like a Golf should - it's an A3 with a VW badge. It costs £20,000 pounds and by the time he has paid it off - the mk3 will be just as valuable with all the depreciation these new cars experience. Look at the tail lights of the new Golf - poor asthetics. Anyway, if I won a new Golf mk5 GTI, I would be happy, but I would sell it straight away and get a later vr6 for £4000 with low...

The Volkswagen Golf VR6 is a super dynamic car, which even Superman would have fun driving. Lovely Purple leather which is classic with the aubergine exterior.
It's got more gadgets than a Lexus, heated seats, onboard computer, digital radio, excellent alarm kit which shuts all windows, including sunroof! (read more)

The Volkswagen Golf VR6 I bought my brother owned from new so I watched him chuck money at it for almost 9 years before he bought a next to new M3. I'd always loved the car so took his hand off when it came up. Twin headlamp conversion, BBS 17's, full s/s exhaust, air filter and VW body kit. I've read that get an up rated ECU increases power to 215bhp whether or not this is actually true or I don't think it can be but it feels like it! I haven't driven a standard VR6 but know people who've... (read more)

The Volkswagen Golf VR6 is one of the only car's I've bought that I wasn't looking to buy it just so happened my brother had his 5 year old one he had owned from new for sale and my Astra GTe16v was getting on a bit I knew the car was a low mileage gem and came with a full VW body kit, massive bbs alloys and an excellent uprated sound system. It was perfect well it would have been if I could have afforded to keep it. As within a couple of months I knew I couldn't run a car doing only 23mph... (read more)

The Golf flagship model of the day has aged resonably well, I have lived with a '96 highline model for a year now, though initially concerned when buying it due to the high 114,000 miles, this has proved not to be an issue. It's a cliche but these engines are bulletproof. In a more competitive resale market go for a later model with safety features such as dual airbag if possible. The engine initally feels quick thou the longer you drive it the more you get beaten by smaller modern cars to a... (read more)

Have now owned a Volkswagen Golf 1997 VR6 for over two years. Had some minor problems, but were wear and tear issues, like CV boots, etc. Unfortunately, now at the age of 8 years... it is starting to show some rust bubbles in places.... debatable whether to respray or replace with a newer V6....
When driven carefully, the fuel consumption is about 34 mpg, but when driven with no regard for economy, then 28 mpg is average.
Was a fast hot hatch in its day, but now dated, so 0-60mph of 7.3... (read more)

Ive owned many golfs and corrados before this but this was my first VR6. The power made my old mk3 16V feel weak!! It humiliates most other standard hot hatches- especially when you get over 80- the large ammount of torque helps. The chip upgrade for this costs around £350 and takes power to 215bhp but ive heard nasty stories of MPG of around 10- 12 so im hanging fire for now!!! Insurance can be steep if your young- im paying 780 TPFT with HIC - VW specialists- 23 yr old, 2 yrs no claims 6... (read more)
