Im getting ready to replace my car. I REALLY like the GTIs. How much do one of these slightly uesd go for? Im trying to decide between Vr6 and turbo. I like the turbo. Any input is helpful, thanks.

Well the decision between the VR6 and 1.8T pretty much comes down to this:

VR6: Better if you want to keep it stock or if you have lots and lots of money to modify with.

1.8T: Better if you have a modest budget to modify with. For example, with just one mod, a chip, your 1.8T will have more power than the VR6. But as you can imagine, you could put a turbo on your VR6, and there is pretty much no comparison.

Good luck!

let's not forget about the horsepower change in 2002. 2000-2001 1.8t's came with a 150 hp while the 2002+ comes with 180 hp.

the 99.5-2001 vr6 came with 174 hp and the 2002+ has 201 hp.

go for the 1.8t you'll love the turbo whistle and the way ur head goes flying in the back of your seat when the turbo kicks in!

just like every other car the price will vary w/ options, mileage and year. but for a heads up i have a 2002 gti with about 16k miles on it and it is probably worth about $16.5 - 17.5k

Ahh yes the never ending topic of VR6 vs. 1.8T. I hate to say this but I have to when I see these posts. Try using the search you will probably find 100+ topics on this. Also read a few threads in the MK4 forum to give you an idea what you are heading into. Best of luck!
