Just picked up a 1997 Vr wagon! Love it. I needed a daily to keep my mk3 Vrt project off the road so I can finish it up, and this one is mechanically perfect.
I did a bit of research on em, and the door handles have already been replaced It will be stock for a little bit while I finish up my GTI. But I have some plans to make it look nicer. Had it for a day so far, and I my wagon!
I'm still learning the ins and outs, like what parts are compatible between the generations (mk3 / b3 / corrado), what goodies the the european ones may have that I will want, and whatnot.
