Detail by owner
2002 VW Golf GTi 2.8l V6.
I searched for months for the perfect vr6 mk4 on many classifieds and websites and ended up driving about 500 to retrieve this one, I looked specifically for the 5spd 2v because of the longer gearing, and having been around longer than the 4valve vr6 that only started on the mk4 gti's whereas the 2v was on the mk3 and 4 with more parts readily available, widespread, and cheaper. Having the same top speed as the 4v vr6, but on average being much less $. I found this car in North SF bay, and after only a few weeks of driving it, I got tired of the fwd and already want to go back to an FR layout car, all my cars before this were FR as well, something cheap I can drive hard and not feel so bad about. I haven't driven this car hard at all because I felt it was too nice in such good shape with so few miles to ruin.
