    They sound nice, but they arent particularly quick. Interior is dated, and most are high milers.

    From memory, I dont think the VR6 lump is that much heavier than the 2.0, could be wrong on that one though. And the 2.8 is only about half a second quicker to 60 than the 2.0.

    It would make a nice second car, a bit of a retro project to keep tucked away in the garage, subtle mods here and there and bring it out when you want some old school fun, not as a daily driver though. Id rather a mkII for that though.

    I had a drive of my mates one in the summer and it was horrible compared to my s3. It felt so loose and handled like **** and his has coilovers. Wasn't as fast as my s3 either. Personally i think if you want to go v6 you should go the R32 route if you can afford it.

    MK2 VR6:yahoo:

    MK3 VR6 :no:

    MK3 platform is pants simple as, If you can find a nice, Well built mk2 vr6 it will be so much more fun and look 100% better.

    If I want something understated but quick and Haldex'd (!), then thats probably going to be high on my list of S3 replacements. Ive never driven one though.

    Corrado Vr6 would be the better choice.

    a Mk2 VR6 or a Corrado VR6 if you were to go for one mate, alternatively keep the S3 and keep smiling :)
