mk3 vw golf gti 2.0 or mk3 vw golf vr6

6 posts in this topic

hi, i was just wondering if anyone had the choice, would you get a mk3 vw gti 2.0 or a mk3 vw golf vr6.

If any, why?

Hope you can help, Tobi 169144-ok.gif

I think probably the best of the bunch was the MK.3 16v!

The 8v wasn't very impressive at all(apologies to 8v owners,only my opinion)and the V6 is a totally different powerplant to what most people are used to.The 16v revved crisply and had decent performance,if not electrifying.The VR6's I've driven never seemed any quicker to be honest and always felt like the handling wasn't upto scratch!

I think the VR6 is a little heavier but more powerful so they are kinda matched, I'd go for the VR6.

I'd always take a MKII over a MKIII anyday. So much better in many ways, but they are older and only a few good ones left smile.gif

I like the VR6, but for ease of use, MPGs, insurance, etc etc the 2.0 16V is the way to go. Just make sure its in mint condition cos many have been ragged to death 169144-ok.gif
