  1. Save The VR6 Owners Club!

    Things have slowed down considerably with the club as of recent times, and we need your help to keep things running and help to reinvigorate our club. The VR6 Owners Club was founded over 18 years ago, however due to lower visitor and paid membership numbers we are at risk of losing almost 2 decades of information, posts, build threads, photos and guides. Social media has had a large impact on how users interact and the heart of the VR6 Owners Club was our community forum for many years. We have an active presence on social media, however we are unable to build services that brings in much needed funds to cover even our basic costs through social media platforms. We need your help to help secure the future of the club, and its website in terms of covering hosting, software renewal fees. Please help by donating as little or as much as your can afford - every penny will go back into the club to ensure its longevity for years to come ! https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/the-vr6-owners-club We are also seeking moderators, social media savvy folk to help promote our club, membership, merchandise managers and club membership secretary and event managers (when things return to normal in this crazy world we now live in). If you think you can help, please do reply below and we can talk more!

  5. Save The VR6 Owners Club!

    Thanks ! That would be amazing if you are able to help. Please send me your paypal details for shop merch, I recently had all the stock sent back from the old shop manager but need to go through it and get all stock levels updated but with one thing or another (and having 4 children!) have not been able to do so yet so will for now refund your money until I can get chance to get shop updated and up and running etc… How do you think you can help to promote club etc… ?
  6. Club membership

    We switched to subscription based model nearly 2 years ago due to dropping membership numbers and to preserve the website and its information - being online for 18 years + now. Things are slower these days and Facebook has pretty much taken over on most part our group has over 19k members and our fan page has more than 32k followers. We are currently crowd-funding to help get things off the ground again as we need investment on our platform to be able to re-launch club membership welcome packs etc… however I am currently on my own here and no one seems to be willing to help. The success of any club is of course behind those people who have put in the effort, so if you would like to help then please let me know ! Pete

  13. Will The Legendary VR6 Survive?

    Will The Legendary VR6 Survive? For many years, the Volkswagen VR6 has been a trustworthy car to many, helping them to do exactly what cars were made for – getting them from A to B. However, in recent years, we have noticed the respected car brand producing less and less of the model, and all that people can ask is “why?” We know that technology has been on an all-time rise recently, particularly within the vehicle industry. However, the future termination of the VR6 is based on so much more, so I wouldn’t ditch your Honda for the VR6 just yet. Here’s why. Many Other Models Have The Same Engine, But Better Cars weigh tonnes – that isn’t rocket science. However car manufacturers are always working hard to ensure that the cars they produce are as light at possible The VR6 has a 2.0 turbo engine, which generates similar horsepower through the majority of its rev range. On top of this, the VR6 has more torque as well as a flat torque curve, which all sounds great, right? Well, several other cars on the market offer the exact same engine, except they’re lighter and also assist the car with handling and breaking. Take the Jetta for example – even the 2003 model is able to exceed the VR6 in terms of the engine. Plus, 4-cylinder engines are more than capable of over 300 horsepower, so the reason behind the manufacture of the VR6 has become rather blurry over recent years. Making Variations Will Be Too Expensive Volkswagen will always put blood, sweat and tears into their work to keep their customers happy, but sometimes this just isn’t feasible. Many people have adored the VR6 and will be sad to see it go, however creating new models with a smaller engine isn’t a practical move. Profit is the main priority for Volkswagen and if their inline-4 is able to provide a higher quality performance as well as better torque for a more cost-effective price, this will be more worthwhile for them than offering a wide selection of VR6 models. The VR6 Can’t Keep Up With Technology It’s incredible that in present day, we are seeing the introduction of driverless cars within the vehicle industry, and it’s outstanding technology like this that will be a factor contributing to the VR6’s downfall. Ultimately, people are purchasing cars with the knowledge that technology will improve the performance of the vehicle, whether in the braking systems or built-in satnav to make the navigation process much easier. With Volkswagen focusing on more technologically-savvy, efficient cars, the VR6 is unable to provide such innovations to consumers. Volkswagen Are Busy Working On Other Projects Whilst the VR6 has served the public very well over the years, it’s time to move on, and Volkswagen knows this. Currently, they are working on consolidating their platforms and drivetrains, such as the brand new 7-seater Atlas SUV. Ultimately, this car has the same fundamentals as the Golf, except the Golf is considerably smaller and compact. So, to keep all customers happy, Volkswagen are more worried about current and upcoming models as opposed to the VR6. Whilst the VR6 is clinging on for now, I wouldn’t hold your breath. With so many technological innovations revolutionising current cars on the market, and Volkswagen pushing out bigger and better cars, the VR6 has become a very small fish in a giant fishbowl. I think a farewell is definitely on the cards, but isn’t that just part of industry life?
  14. WIN 2 TICKETS FOR THE BRITISH TOURING CAR CHAMPIONSHIP AT SILVERSTONE - 18TH SEPTEMBER Vince at Stealth Racing has very kindly offered a pair of tickets, to a lucky winner from either The Corrado Forum, or the VR6 Owners Club, for the British Touring Car Championship at Silverstone on the 18th September. Between us we decided that there will just be one winner from both forums, who takes both tickets - that way, you can get a mate to come with you, and won't just be going on your own. The rules are simple. Just post a message in this thread. You'll be entered into the draw. At the end of the deadline we'll put all the usernames of those who posted into a (virtual) hat and draw out a winner. Two things I want to say. Firstly, if you're a member of both forums, please just enter once. Secondly, if you know you can't actually make the event / date because of commitments don't bother entering as it's unfair on those who could actually make it. Timeframes are tight (we just got the tickets today) so we're going to set a closing date for the competition of Monday the 12th September at 6pm. This gives us plenty of time to get the tickets to you! The winner will be drawn using https://www.random.org/lists/ Good luck!
