I am tring to decide on a new car. I have a 2000 mercury cougar that I want to get rid of. I just got my wife a 98 jetta gl and i have been very impressed with vw's. Now for the real ? I am wanting to get a vw also I would like to know if the golf and gti are two different cars. Or is the gti the higher end model golf. And if that is the case can you get a golf vr6 that is not a gti. And if any one could apox how much would a 98 go for i really donot like the a4 body style. thanks for the any help in advance. please excuse my grammer in a hurry.
