      By the time you source a supercharger and all the related things, it would probably be cheaper to swap a 2.0T.

      All of the VR6 models are quite rare and the addition of 4MOTION/wagon are even more difficult to find. For instance, there are only a handful of VR6 models in my area and none of them are wagons,...

      I think AFS and bi-xenon was an option with sport 2 and lux 2 package. Either that or a standalone option, depending on country.

      I would think most of the cars with the oil pump bolt issue, would already be off the road or repaired by now. Some of them did it quite early on and others had it go around 120k or so. I've had my...

      Gave my car some love today, a nice wash and finish with quick detail spray.

      I can't say what your exact cost will be. I had my HPFP and fuel pressure regulator replaced for ~$800 at the dealer. The HPFP itself is no big deal, right off the side of the engine.

      As I said, there are too many variables to compare apples to oranges. Different spring rates, shock absorbers, length and design of the control arms and such.

      Based on my experience owning a 2.0T base and now the VR6 Sport, both cars are very capable all-round and represent a sort of middle ground between floaty appliance and higher-end German luxury. Even...

      Any car with that many miles is going to be a project car, just to keep it on the road. Not a good idea for a first car.

      There are no US R36s. Closest you can get is a 3.6 4Motion Sport 2 with a bodykit to look similar to R36. While this is possible, you'd be missing out on the specific upgrades that make the R36 what...

      This is the B6 forum. The car you're asking about is a B5.5, so this is the wrong forum for it.

      I would avoid a car with an engine that has consistently been low on oil. This is one of the best...

      I'm not sure how well equipped my dealer is; I'll have to ask if that's possible.

      Looks to be around an eight hour job in total. Roughly how many more hours to do the intake cleaning?

      When VW set out to make the NMS, they took the B6 platform and stretched it out. There is no current Audi that matches the NMS.

      Don't mean to say anything nasty about the 2.5L, it's just not a performance engine. You need a VR6 for real speed.

      VR6 valve cover gasket

      Noticed a considerable oil leak down the side of the engine block today, which points to the valve cover gasket and spark plug tube seals. I don't have the tools to do it myself, so a dealer will...

      What a difficult situation to be in; either one would be ideal. My advice is the same, drive both and go with the one that appeal to you the most. I love the VR6, but the LS series of engines is more...
