For my next car, I was originally thinking 97, 98 GTI VR6. I would probably have a few thousand left and be able to tune it a little and have some money left over. Then I was thinking about getting a slightly used 2001 golf 1.8T...I would owe my parents about $1000 or so and could pay that back in maybe 2 months. I realize this poll may be slightly biased b/c of the forum I'm posting in, but here goes:

Re: Which car for next car? (NJTDI)

i say 1.8T because it doesnt cost a lot to tune the engine and u can crank the power..
ALSO, its newer, hence less problems....
no flames please

if it makes you feel any better, i have a TDI so i have an unbiased oppinion cause i dont drive either 1.8T or 2.8VR6

i love the '97 GTi VR6's but i'd have to go with the 1.8T b/c it's newer and has massive tuning potential......either one would be sweet tho

you have to realize how much more it is going to cost you to mod a vr6... if the money is an issue and you plan on modding, go with 1.8t. however, if you dont plan on modding and you want a nice consistanyly powerful vr6 growling under the hood...

Yep. I am definitely biased to the 1.8T, but if you are looking for power potential and want a nice car, so with the 1.8T. No question about it.

if you dont care about the more maintence on a 97 because its a few years older, go with the 97 GTI VR6 http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif more power stock then the 2001 1.8T, not that the turbo couldnt easily get passed the 97 VR power wise, but hey, you asked for all opinions

Re: Which car for next car? (vwsteve)

you guys forget is he has a couple thousand left over he can just get a turbo kit for his MKIII vr6 since its not drive by wire. Then we can all let the 1.8t spankings begin! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
