Well guys, I sold my 1.8t the other day and picked up a VR6 today. Same year. Just ALOT cleaner. 138xxx. Timing chain, water pump, tires and brakes at 133k coilovers and body kit since then.

Wheels don't look right in pics. I'm loving the color in person!
I do have the stock lights for it...
Yeah this paint is original so that's a huge plus, and yes the flames were hideous. But I ignored them just to have a golf finally haha.

That paint on the 1.8t is something else.
That's reason enough for the trade imo

I really don't mind the lights that are in it? Lol. Think they look cheap or somethin? Haha.

I'm loving the sound of having all stock exhaust besides the muffler, but they welds the can on and didn't get the topside of course. (Smelly). And I think I may be smelling the cat. When test driving the car I thought it was the paper mill in the area. Other ideas? I'm not too worried about it.

what a huge upgrade paint wise over your other one and a vr to throw in another upgrade, headlights need to be swapped for some OEM ones, those ones are terrible

What's your plans?

Not much for plans at all..
Like the clean look so much.
So happy with the vr6. A real drivers car.
No worries guys I don't paint that crap on the 1.8. I used to call it the mexiflame lol.

I reay don't mind the headlights but I might redo the stockers for fun since I have em.

I wish it came with a turbo haha. People do turbo them though depending on how much effort you want to put into it it can be done. There are a couple threads on here with people doing it.

Yeah that's cool but I think the internals have to be changed for lower compression. I'm ok with it not being as fast. When it's time for another fast car it will be muscle or subaru. Haha. Right now I want reliable and enjoyable. And this is doing that just great. :)
