I (or relatives) have owned numerous VW's over the years. This Mk3 VR6 has had the most issues out of all, going by Water's previous post (and others) I dont think mine is the only one........... its rediculous that you have to use Ford parts or any other manufacturer's parts to make it go...... I understand aftermarket parts for tuners...... but just to keep a car that is (relatively) not that old on the road is very dissapointing. :'(

I love my VW Golf again, my new coil pack and new ICM work treat...... Hopefully she lasts a bit longer before breaking

Love/hate relationship >:D Coolant hose just above exhaust manifold goes to cyl head and into heater core split, steam and coolant pissing all over the drive, luckily I had just pulled up at home when it happened.
