  5. I am selling my VR6 Highline which is like selling a family member. It was my husbands company car from new in 1996 and he then bought the car from the lease company in 1999. It has been very carefully looked after and is garaged when not out and about. I am advertising it here with the VR6 Owners Club as I want it to go to a good home. If no interest I will place it in the motoring press. I would appreciate advise on the best forum to advertise it but it will probably be Autotrader. It has done 95500 miles and comes with a full service history. It is unmodified with the only addition of remote locking which did not come as standard. Black leather interior Heated front seats Rear wiper Wooden knob on the gear stick (only on Highline models) Electric windows Electric wing mirrors 10 Cd Player Very clean body which has been maintained at no expense spared Electric sun roof (tilt and slide) VR6 Engine in very good condition. Uses no oil. Only ultimate grade fuel is used I am only selling because I need an automatic. Doubt if there is a better one on the road.

  8. VR6 Coil pack

    Hi guys. I'm looking to replace my coil pack on the VR6 but have been quoted £300 from TPS. Is this the usual price? The guy on the phone mentioned that I could use one from a Mondeo ST? I've never heard of this, is this old news? Has anyone successfully done this? Will the wiring even work (leads)? Any help would be great. Thanks.
  9. Candy VR

    Hey all, I have a RR thread elsewhere so the first few posts will be bringing thread to date. Owned the car since the beginning of 2018 and am finally getting around to starting my thread to showcase pictures jobs done to the car. Background on the car:1995 VR6Purchased with 149k with full service history (serviced every year)Standard exampleIt has had a blow-over respray at some point in its original colour - Candy White. Looks nice from a distance but not perfect around deals.Everything worked* on purchaseThe car as it stands today @ 151k: Current list of jobs:- Sunroof no longer works and the replacement I put in at a cost of £170 snapped within a week.- Noticed some rust on the A Pillar behind internal trim. Not visible on the outside and probably caused due the windscreen trim being cracked directly above the rust patch.- ABS light on occasionally. Says it's the Brake Pedal Sensor (mostly).- Suspension wants refreshing- Leather or Recaro's (don't we all).- I want to preserve the underside with underseal.More to follow on the jobs done this year...
  10. Good Morning All, Longtime Corrado owner but first-time poster so be kind! I currently own a black, N reg VR6 Corrado. I have owned it for almost 5 years now after buying it off my previous manager. The car has almost 94k miles on it, which from the MOT history and the fact that I know the history of the car, are genuine. Due to new houses and other much less fun, adult things going on in my life, I have made/been forced into the decision to sell it. The car is in mechanically tip-top condition. It's been both serviced by garages and looked after by myself, depending on the size of the job. During my ownership, I've replaced all discs, pads, wheel bearings, abs sensors, radiator, starter motor, plugs leads, heater matrix, upgraded wiring loom to name but a few. I have also changed the exhaust to a stainless cat back as the original exhaust was held together with welding, tape, and good will... Unfortunately, there is some rust starting to appear on the car. Nothing Major, round the wheel arches, a bit on the door and behind the VR6 badge. I have made an attempt to sell the car before using a recommended and agreeable price (£4k) that I was given by a certain car sales website. I looked about online and it seemed to be one of the cheapest out there, especially when taking in to account the miles on the car. Advertised at this price just attracted punters offering ridiculously low figures and when I further lowered the price, it just further encouraged even lower offers! I got so fed up off this, I took the car off the market and it has been tucked up in the garage ever since. I've come on here to seek advice for two points: 1. What sort of price should I realistically be looking for? Looking online, prices seem to be all over the shop? 2. Would it be worth the time and money to get it to a body shop and get the bodywork sorted? I.e. would I get back the money that I would be willing to spend on it? I'm at my wits end with this so any help would be much appreciated! Chas

  12. 2001 VW Jetta VR6 - 6 speed manual I am in the process of trying to diagnose a DATA BUS short (OBD2 port will not work). Can you unplug the ECU, turn key on to test OBD port and replug the ECU in after without issue? Its a simple question but I cannot find a clear answer anywhere. Am in the process of trying to make a list of modules to check. ECU keeps coming up but there is no way I'm unplugging it without knowing if that will damage it or clear it etc. ABS module and Comfort module are on the list but have not tried yet (taking a damn break from this thing - getting ready for round 2) BACKGROUND: (bought car at auction, runs ok but kinda rough. Starts absolutely fine. Can drive OK but bad lifter noise. Has CEL but cannot communicate through OBD port) Just to clarify, port HAS POWER whether key is on or off. Check engine light is on - ABS light is on - Traction control light comes on once in a while - Washer fluid sensor works fine (light comes on when low) Have checked radio K lIne, is fine (4V-ish) Have checked and replaced cig lighter fuse and #4 fuse I think? (were blown) Still no COMM Both fog light and HID bulb filaments were fried (had HIDs, have since removed and am waiting on plug & play replacement headlight assemblies because old assemblies were illegal) FYI- Intake shift rod was not source of engine noise, neither is the chain (motor was swapped 10,000 km ago, 4000 miles or so) Lots of stuff was replaced with motor swap. Am making progress with this car but I REALLY need to get this OBD port working. Any tips would be appreciated.
  13. VW GOLF MK3 VR6 2.8ltr (Mystic Blue) £3000 ono Location: North London Hello and welcome, 1996 P Reg 103910 miles 2.8 ltr, 3 door Electric Windows Electric Door Mirrors Power Steering Electric Sunroof (Tilt & Slide) Alarm & Immobiliser Original 15" BBS Alloy Wheels Original Manual Pioneer CD head unit. (with additional wiring for sound system set up) The Car has 103910 genuine miles backed up with paper work, previous history, receipts etc etc. I have owed the car since 06.02.2011. My reason for selling is because I do not drive the car as much as I would like to due to travelling (work). I will miss the fun for sure. For the past 6 months the car had waiting for some repairs. I recently had the following work done on the VR6: Work done 9 August 2018 *with receipts MOT Tyres Full Service Pads & Disc Wiring Electronics Heater Matrix Back Arm Heater Blower Heater Resister Thermostat Housing Thermostat Sensors Ignition Coil & Sparks Additional work not done: Suspected radiator issue as I recently notice water leak after the car warms up and comes to a stop. I took it down to my mechanic and have confirmation this may be the issue. The Car will be sold in this final condition. ALL INSPECTIONS WELCOME. The car is in road legal driving condition and starts first time. Still drives very well. The price of the car with ono is with consideration of the additional work needed to be done. Sold as seen with all inspections welcome before the sale. £3000 ono
  14. Hey Guys n Gals, I have an issue with my MK3 VR6 windows. Both front and rear offside windows are not working. I've seen on this site that I should check the loom and conduit connectors etc in the door jam. But surely that wouldn't affect the rear window? Any help would be appreciated. cheers

  16. Vr6 AAA OBD1 or OBD2

    I work at a machine shop and bought a core 12 valve vr6 engine code AAA. Came with nothing but a coil pack. I’m putting it in a 1973 VW Type 3 Squareback. It of course will be turboed and I am trying to figure out if OBD1 or OBD2 is the best option aftermarket wise and also easier depending on pros and cons. I have had a 2000 GTI GLX with this same motor in it but wasn’t into this stuff at the time so the most I had into it was exhaust and suspension and didn’t really need to think about this. Any help I can get would be great.

  18. Beloved Corrado VR6 for Sale

  19. Hi to all, last Saturday a good friend and I went to a local muffler shop to get his 24v jetta/bora exhaust upgraded. From stock Exhaust to High Flow cat + 2.5" piping + Borla muffler, sounds mean!! A little vid, sorry for putting music on it but I think it make it less boring
  20. Hello fellow vr6 owners, I have a few questions, and could use some input- it'd be much appreciated. I can no longer shift my mk3 into gear with the engine on, but when the engine is off, I can get it into 1st, reverse, etc, just fine. I checked all the linkages, and the shifter is in mint condition. I did notice that my clutch pedal feels softer, and lower to towards the firewall than normal. I figured the signs are pointing towards the clutch slave cylinder being kaputt, so I let my mk3 sit for a couple of days for that part to come in. I replaced the clutch slave cylinder yesterday, bled the clutch, but the pedal is unresponsive and completely limp. To add to it, the engine kills itself after starting if I dont hold the gas pedal on 10k rpm (idle). I know I did something wrong, but I have no idea what, how, and could use some advice and input.
  21. Mk1 caddy Vr6 24V turbo

    Hi this is my friends caddy mk1 vr6 24vT, still in process.
  22. Hi to all, long time not active in this forum, but here I am. last weekend a frend get his first Vr6 and it's a 24v, car has been parked for about 2 years so some work is needed, we decided to try the basic stuff first, Service, brakes, bearings, and once there a resonator delete. So,video is in Spanish but basically we did a service and removed the resonator from stock exhaust. More thigs are coming for this car so I will be uploading advances on this, my Mk3 vr6 12 Jetta, and the mk1 Vr6 caddy ,that is getting another vr6 12v engine.
  23. Good Morning I am in need of a bit of advice regarding doing a engine swop from a 2.8 12V AA to a 2.8 24V BDE in my MK3 GOLF VR6. Does this 24V fit straight into my MK3 body of does engine mounts need to be made up? Does the CV Joints and shafts fit on the 24V? I will be running and aftermarket fuel management system should I decide to follow through with the swop. So I would appreciate it if someone could shed some light on the swop and the ins and outs of the 24 motor? Kind Regards Gershon Adonis Cape Town, South Africa.
  24. 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?
