Mk3vr6 — 1998 VW MK3 VR6 This car was very fun to drive and had a deep exhaust note that i will never forget. The experience is difficult to put into words, but driving this car made the hair on the back of your neck stand up. Dont get me wrong it was no race car, it never even went down the track, but having never owned or even driven a car with the force and power this beast of a vr6, it gave me chills. Next will be the r32, but not just yet. This car had: Neuspeed P-Flow Chip Neuspeed Downpipe Neuspeed Cat Back Exhaust Custom 18" rims/tires BMW Sytle Angel Eyes Halo Headlights w/ Eyelids Euro Style Debadged grill, w/ vr6 Emblem Insert Euro Style License Plate she is no longer with us. my friend flipped it w/ me in a passenger. were both fine, somehow.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: sick

Cons: nothing

Step Car To A Faster One — like the speed, hate changing the oil, needs better body work, and some points on the car rust easily, its fairly cheap to maintain as long as you get one that wasn't driven too hard, and it drives very easy

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: fast, fun, easy

Cons: how much oil

Buy This. — Wonderful engine, and very very very very durable. The appearance is lacking beetity but is very functional and is not disgusting. The powerful VR6 is perfect for backroad cruising, highway driving, and yes, racing. Wonderful car in general. DO NOT GET THIS CAR (GTI VR6) AFTER 2002!!! 2003 models and up are known to have major problems and are a hassle. GET THIS CAR.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Engine, Durability.

Cons: Appearance, some parts are hard to get.

Volkswagon — It seems to be a great family car. a little under powered for picking up the kids from school. VER VERY top heavy being that it sits so high. and the damn belts make sooo much noise. and thats about all

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: fun on the back roads

Cons: if you own a dub you know

Best Car — BEST car ever.. one of the best made VW engines ever. The engine is small for a 6 cylinder (compared to american cars) but mighty. Very roomy inside and HUGE back seat windows. I have over 160,000 miles and still races off the start.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Amazing handeling, speed and gas milage

Cons: if you can't drive manual, but i suggest you learn

Fast And Furious Haha — You take care of it and it will take care of you more or less. Performance is pretty good especially if its manual shift, its quick at accelerating, braking with my car is pretty good also because I got newer drilled/slotted disk brakes, handeling is also good. Its a 1998 so ofcourse I had to do some repairs but nothing majore, had problems with the secodary air pump. Appearance, I can look at my car all day and not get bored of it haha its that good for me, but others might not agree. Gas Mileage it pretty good, when gas was down to about $1.50 I could fill up my tank for $20 dollars and drive it all week and I do a lot of driving, 50+ miles a day. Sometimes I just can't wait to get out of the house to drive my car, its that fun.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun overall.

Cons: none
