Its kind of funny, as a previous owner of an 03 24v VR6 GTI, I found that the technical forum for that engine was always full of activity. This was because it was the only 24v 2.8 VR6 specific "hang-out" for people wanting to talk about their cars. In reality that board has many posts that are not all that "technical" in nature.
By the same token, the R32 has its own owner forum and many of the posts in that forum are "technical" in orientation. I believe that if the R32 was forced into the MkIV general forum, everyone would be hanging out in the 3.2 24v VR6 forum instead.
Just a guess at why this forum is so dead..
