Hi. Im from Jersey, Channel Islands.

Just picked up this Passat Gt VR6 saloon. Can anyone give some info on it? I've been told it's rare?

Thanks

Hi there,

Looks in good shape ... good find! Yes the VR6's don't come up very often - Not a great seller for VW in the Passat form. I cant vouch for the accuracy of howmanyleft.co.uk but it suggests 'not many' B) :D

Now stop gloating ...... and get it lowered! Check though as I don't think standard coilies fit VR6.

Enjoy!
