    My New VR6 *Little Update Thread*

    Hello People,

    My name is Hayden, reside in the Newcastle area, im 18 and im a p-plater ....

    Now that is out of the road, i have recently purchased a 1994 VR6.

    She has 185,000km, little to no rattles, Coilovers, Sound System and Rims.

    Here are some pictures of her, as i bought it except for a wash.






    First additions, Forever black/Black Spray paint, red striping.

    Ghetto masking.








    Next idea:

    Hopefully be on by next week. Pictures will follow.

    - Hayden.

    awesome Those wheels 17's or 18's? They look huge.

    Goodluck with it I know my little vr6 has now taken over the little spare time I have left along with thousands and thousands of dollars... hehe

    Thanks ray.

    They are 17's, that sit about 50mm in from the guards so hopefully I'll get different wheels with a better offset or some spacers.

    I have about 13 weeks till I've done my HSC than hopefully mine can get all the free time too:p

    i went and saw this particular VR when it was for sale on Parra rd a while back.... it was nice and clean but the dealer didn't wanna really play on asking price so i walked

    its always good to see these cars being owned by people who appreciate what its all about

    Oh what were your impressions of it back then?

    It's been through one owner since then.

    Apparently he paid 8K from that dealer.

    yeah like i said it was clean and tidy..... everthing was working as it should and there was no sound of the death rattle ( timing chains )

    this was about 12 months ago though... hopefully the last owner took care of it before it was sold onto you

    Partially...

    The timing chain is stretched on it, I'll be doing that very soon.

    When I bought it the timing chain guide was fractured, or so was thought, so I took it to the vw specialist up here and he said it was stretched rather than the guide fractured.
