2002 Volkswagen GTI VR6 2dr Hatchback (2.8L 6cyl 5M)


This is the 2nd VR6 I have owned and
have had many other high performance
cars (BMW's etc) but VW seem to build a
fun pocket rocket. This car is first
class - a real pleasure to drive, well
built and excellent value for the price.
The only things that would make this
even more fun would be 4 motion (like
the european version have). The six
speed is well suited for short smooth
changes and the car handles the power

Best Features

17 inch wheels and low profile tyres. The bucket seats are comfortable and hold you in place well when throwing the car into tight twisty bends. Space - for a small 2 door its got a fair bit of rear space and boot space.

Worst Features

I would have xenon lights have these on my Audi A6 and they make night time driving that much better. Have a 6 stack cd system installed - although the optional monsoon system is first class and almost to bose quality.
