      ...even the mk2 guys are getting away from them, and into mk3's...
      I wouldn't exactly agree with you there. At any point in time you get a person with any generation dub/audi trying to trade into another generation dub/audi. It's mostly because people are bored of what they have, and not because the car is so phenomenal. If that was the case then the MK3 GTI would've flown off of the dealer lots, or at least kept most of their values throughout the years instead of being worth only a little more than a golf. KBB prices the GLX significantly higher than the VR GTI. Yes, enthusiasts will pay more than the typical person, but if every enthusiast coveted the MK3 GTI as much as you think we do then it would reflect in KBBs statistics and their pricing guide.

      This is coming from a MK2 guy, but I do like MK3s. They make great parts cars. You can pick them up for dirt cheap, and since the MK3 is so porky just about anything you pull off of them is an upgraded for the lighter MK2. They make decent and cheap transportation too (as long as you're not considering unicorns like minty Driver Editions).

      Nice car though. I do look forward to seeing it at one of the shows this year, but I must ask that you stop saying and implying that everyone has a hard on for your car. I don't particularly want to own a MK3 GTI, but I will say that I can appreciate any work you might put into yours.

      (Sing to the tune of Me & Bobby Mcgee)

      Busted flat in Parker, CO
      Waiting for a tow
      And I'm feelin near as faded as my paint.
      Zacher thumbed a carrier down
      Just before it rained
      It was full of mk3 GTIs

      But OE's just another word for
      Nothin' getting built
      Nothin' don't mean nothin hon, if it ain't MINT
      And looking mint was easy lord, when the emblem's new
      And the salsa green is mint enough for me

      MK3 GTi
      05-23-2012 06:41 PM #217
      As someone who has owned and loved only an MK3 since 1999 I want to chime in.

      Quick backstory: I wanted an MK3 since about 1995 but was never able to afford one (they were expensive to a high school kid at that time) until I got a used 97 in 1999. I've been through hell with this car and I love it so much. I've wrecked it twice, wrecked many pieces on it by trying to save cash and do work myself. Still I'll keep this thing forever. I've put so much hard work and pride into it. Now at 31 years old having this car for about 13 years it gets a lot of attention these days. It looks pretty sick, and despite only being an 8v it has overall great performance for my personal liking. Every time I get gas someone comes up to me and wants to talk about it. I'm finally starting to see some good light on this project that I envisioned when I was 15.

      But here is the point of me posting. Its just an MK3. Even when it was brand new, it was just an MK3 - middle class econo-hatch with some sporty potential. I love this thing, but after years of interest in VAG, I believe that pretty much all other VW models are superior in most categories, MK1 being the best. I think it looks pretty good, but its not even in the top two or three of GTi s in my opinion. And I wouldn't even put it in the same sentence as RS4s and Porsche or even wilder exotics.

      This thread was amusing at first. But more and more I was actually starting to feel ASHAMED of loving my MK3. Zacher is giving MK3 owners who love or hate their cars a bad reputation all over this forum. His posts are fanatical and without any kind of factual content. There really is no way to prove what is the most loved VW and its absurd for him to just say these types of things like its fact because that's how he feels. Zacher keeps saying things like 'thats just your opinion' or 'i dont care about the haters opinions'. Dude, don't you realize that saying the MK3 is 'the best' in any category is something that is an opinion? Opinions can be argued, and if we all agree to that than go nuts. But they are not facts.

      I feel like every time I talk to a VW person these day's I have to qualify my MK3 to them. "Oh yeah this is my MK3, its pretty nice, for an MK3". I mean, I don't want anyone to think I'm some fanatic who just thinks a personal preference is a hard fact.

      Zacher. Dude you love your MK3. I can appreciate that. A lot. Keep that up and do whatever you want with it. But stop speaking for everyone else who likes MK3s. A lot of people hate MK3s for good reasons. Their popularity has to do with a lot of things, and, in my opinion, that popularity has a lot to do with affordability. Just accept that the way you feel is not how everyone else feels and you may not be able to understand why.

      Also, you should put spaces after the end of each written sentence. It would make it easier for everyone to read and give you a little more clout.

      My first rant on vwvortex, end.

      Heh. Yes you're right. But when pronouncing abbreviations with letters like h, m & n, you can use 'an'. I lived in UK/Europe for a few years. In my particular job communicating with proper Queen's English was critical. I have not been able to shake it since I moved back. If I had said 'Mark3' I would not have used 'an'.

      Now back to the MK3 dogma, please.

      In my experience, its due to people thinking its "emkay" and not "mark", when if you were sayin an emkay 3 you would be correct using an, but incorrect in make vs emkay.

      Mk3 is king!

      Haha cute. The car may have been made ten years ago, but it doesn't break like it, and it sure doesn't look like it. And I can find just about any part I need at dealer. And it doesn't have the "old broken down VW" mantra associated with the body style.

      Reminds me of that show weird obsessions. This guy thought he was in a relationship with his car and kissed it and had gay sex with it. I think it was a green mk3 gti but I can't really remember.
