Some of you 'hopefully' still remember my liquid Grey Focus (I posted some of my whistler pics last time, that was my first 'official' photos for my focus, and also the last).. :)

Just in case what I have been doing the past 3 months..:


The bad:

"I sold my focus"!!! [smackbum] - hiding from flame mode - [paranoid]



The Good:

I can't believe I make profit when I sold that car! [thankyou]



The Best part:

I got this:







It's a 2000 Volkswagen MK4 GTI.
Incl: Fresh Paint! Momo Wheels, Lowered with Bilstein Suspensions.

Why it's much better than my Focus:

- Full Beige Leather Interior! classy euro
- Black color
- It's Euro! [hah]
- Smooth Standard Transmission
- Heated Seats!
- Sunroof

and the best part...

VR6 ENGINE, 2.8 Liter, 175 HP, 180 Torque


This thing jumps when accelerates, no more hesitation, super smooth power distribution throughout the band.
Imagine putting a V6 engine on a small car like this. :huh:

I'm super excited, but nonetheless.. missing my focus.. that was my first car:



So, that's it.. Thanks for everyone's help so far! will still going back n forth between vwVortex & FF. [ffrocks]

you'll probably be on Vortex a lot more diagnosing electrical gremlins. Congrats on the VR6 though!

Rear-wheel drive, huh?

[rolleyes]


(But your Focus was VERY, very sharp looking, BTW - I can see why you made a profit on it.)

Hahaha, so far so good, the only problem I had was just the serpentine belt tensioner & my reverse light burned out. [cool]

Not planning to do anything major on this car in the short term, in a process of purchasing a new apartment. But Who knows... [thankyou]

yeppp, it's FWD, My baddd2! Newb with this car.

It's 100% GTI GLX, it was the top of the line version of GTI, VR6 model. that's why it has full leather interior. No golf has that. [neener]

Planning to take a pic of the engine bay soon, and u'll see the big VR6 emblem there. he3 *ow, the Engine looks like new (as most VWs), not like my filthy focus' engine bay. [paranoid]

Any comments welcome! [welcome]

I'm pretty sure the 2000 GTI looks like this... they didn't look much different from a regular Golf.
thats why i hate mk4s...

I was looking for so long for a GTi specifically a 2001-2002 1.8T. in the end bought an SVT cuz all the golfs in my area (also Vancouver) had well over 130K km's and costed 2000-3000 more than i paid for my SVT which had just under 100K. Sick looking car tho. Where abouts do you live in Vancouver?

I love the VR6's. German engineering rocks! The front seats are really uncomfortable though. SVT seats are much better. (IMO)

sweet ride, i like the roof rack, but the wheels aren't gonna cut it on the VW scene. i would prefer the 1.8t but the vr6 with an exhaust is pure sex.

MMmmm VR6. I'd honestly say, with an intake is one THE best sounding engines ever. Nice buy. Please for the love of all that's holy stay away from the MkIV forums on VWvortex.com. It will turn you into everything that's bad about the VW culture, a typical euro snob douche nozel. Nice car again [thumb] Momo wheels are sexy.
