Save ur cash and get a 20v turbo mate, few mods and you'll be getting more power than the 4-motion Wink

yea true about the sound, nice rumble of a v6! Smile

The only trouble with the v6 is that it costs a fortune to squeeze extra power out of them, for instance, cams, exhaust, induction, re-map and u might get a extra 20 maybe 30 bhp realisticaly???

If you can afford it, go for a R32 afro

Great choice of car!

Just check about the haldex being replaced or you could get left with a nice bill. Other than that can't really fault them.

Correct. It's part of their 4 wheel drive system.

Other common problems are;
fan failures
window regulators going
boot locks seizing with the rear screenwash pipe splitting or coming away from the spindle and leaking water over the lock

Other than that there's nothing wrong with them. Obviously providing the history and servicing etc is up to scratch you should be all good. Like i've mentioned, the haldex and fans are the main and most expensive issues really.

I can recommend a 4mo just sold mine it was getting too
small for us (3 kids) so gotta an a4 avant quattro to replace
it, can't fault a 4 mo they sound great and are plenty fast
enough you can a good power gain by just a de-cat they do
lose a bit of performance though the drivetrain but this worth
it when u get to the twisty stuff as long as u sort the suspension
I put 2nd hand r32 stuff on mine which is vw racing eibachs and
bilstein dampers only cost 80 off the bay and worked great straight
swap anti roll bar bushes and anti roll bar link wear fast.
standard they are very soft but aren't all mk4's , you lose a bit
of boot space with the rear diff u don't need a replacement haldex
just as long as the oil has been dropped it should b fine mine did
have the very common fan prob and traction light prob think it was
the lateral sensor on the steering colum did warrant repairing still
worked just the light stayed on somtimes,check the sump for damage
for damage especially if lowered its a big engine n it sits quite low i took
mine out twice had it reinforced the 2nd time so it didnt happen again loads
of torque 30mph-145mph in 6th gear can b very juicy if driven hard
another reason why it had to go. Lot of car for the money get 1 but
make sure its straight and got good history! Mine had done over
150k FSH and was sweet no cambelt to worry about either.
just sold it 2001 green 5dr 2k which i thought was well cheap
i didnt want it to go but it was just getting 2 small it was either that or
my mk 2 had to b sold and think the mk2 is worth more!
golf v6 4 motion DSC02730
remember a high spec car will be alot more leather, recaros, cruise, sunroof,
winter pack make if you are spending around 4k to get as many extras as you can
from my experience low spec 4mo's dont sell very quick mine had cruise but no leather.

Looks tidy enough but I was to have another it would have to have vag or vw specialist history
and leather recaros! The R32 suspension swap is I feel also a must but u can buy the parts used
yourself n just get them fitted later.

Wish I was so busy I could turn customers away!
You must of got a look at it was really good example
loads history leather and good price? If not tell them to go
f##k themselves if they bother to ring back, I would
have thought it's a buyers market for v6 4motions at
the moment.

full leather
fsh
18inch rs6 alloys but scuffed

i was put off when i went through the history to find that head went on 30.000 miles and a few other things

i wouldnt of minded so much but he reckoned it was too immacualte to drop the price down and it wasnt as clean as he said
he said if i gave him a deposit i could drive it when i came to pick it up eh?

He's right you won't loose much money on
an R32 you will take a big hit on that 4motion
don't think you will get a mk4 R32 for that
money though,think some of the the mk5's are
cheaper odd I know but the mk4 r32 is cult.
Or try an A3 3.2 quattro or S3.
