If the car had a slanted, fastback-type roofline, then it was probably a Corrado, which had a supercharged 4. However, if it was a 3-door hatch, I'm willing to bet it was a GTi with the VR6. Watch out for those cars; they are said to be very strong, especially on the low end.

GTI VR6

the vr6 pumps out 174 horses. i guess from what everyone here thinks it is probably a GTI but the corrado's did also have the VR6's in some of them. they're probably faster considering aerodynamics and weight. their 0-60 is right around mx6 times. not sure about 1/4 mile

You have none. VR6-powered Golfs can very nearly crack into the 6-second range in a 0-60 run (2400 pounds + 174 horsepower = FAST). I don't know how your friends will fare against it, but the GTI is still a quick M-Fer in its own right.

I raced one right after I bought my car. It was FAST!!! I kept up ok considering my clutch is all jacked up. It slips like hell, but he did beat me. When we finally stoped he was totally surprised that he didn't cream me. He was asking what I had done to it and what not... "Ha ha, nothing it's bone stock! I just got it a couple days ago!" Any way I have to give those cars their respect, they're fast. I do want to race another one now though.

VR6's are quite fast. I dont have any experiences with the GTI in particular, but my friend had a '93 Passat GLX with an ATX. 0-60 it was quick for a mid-size sedan with ATX, but above 60mph it was a screaming ****ing animal. These cars are geared for high speeds and believe me you WILL NOT touch one with a stock or even lightly modded mx-6, hell if you're in a mustang you'll have trouble catching up to it. When I mean quick, I mean you're going over 120mph in very little time. Since the GTI is a lot smaller/ligher and a 5spd. I'd think twice before challenging one. Especially if it's got mods, the vr6 takes very well to mods.

I know we tend to make fun of other cars like hondas and stuff, but believe me, VW's are performance cars out of the box (where civics are NOT). I give VW's mad respect.

gti... gti vr6

i test drove both the gti and the gti vr6 (1997 on both) and rode in a 2000 gti 1.8 turbo. heres my "report".

the normally aspirated 4 cylinder is quick... but only about even with my mx6 4 cylinder.

the vr6 is the fastest car i have ever driven. i don't know HOW this thing is as fast as it is, but i think it could beat many, many, MANY fast cars, probably a MX6 V6.

the 1.8t (i didnt drive it) seemed like its close to the VR6, but im only telling you this from my viewpoint in the passenger seat.

i go out on my "random test drive day" every month or so, its a good way to find out what the other guy's got :)
