All I am going to say is 170,000 miles of FUN! That is right, 170,000 miles and all it took was regular maintenance. If you buy it you will need to put money in it (don't buy it if you are broke). Maintenance is pricey, but you can do most of it yourself. BTW, this is one of four VWs I have had.
The ROARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR of the VR6 engine. I still wonder how they managed to fit a 2.8L engine in that small engine bay.
Make it less expensive to add additional horsepower (ie. supercharger, or turbo).
