    fendervg's VR6, a.k.a "The Shark"

    Been meaning to start a thread on this for a while - just too lazy!

    Here's my '93 VR, now has about 50,000 miles on it, pretty much all standard - btw that's not me in the last picture but an onlooker at the vagdrivers show in Cork 2 years ago.

    I'll put up more as we go along - some of these pics are a year or two old and some things have changed since then - the immediate plan is to fit the 70mm Spoonfed front spoiler and replace front and rear shocks with Bilstein B6 ones. Oh, and the oil cooler seals as well.

    Some later pics - and the interior - my Nakamichi was stolen one night when both windows were smashed and it's now a VW Gamma IV cassette deck with green illumination.

    These were it's former friends - only my wife's Golf V 1.6 remains - the Audi Coupe Quattro has gone off to be dismembered and be turned into a track car and the MkII Golf has moved to a new home for a refurb.

    Love this colour - used to have a MK2 in Pearl Grey and it looked sublime. Never realised you could get a VR6 in Pearl Grey - it must have been discontinued just after the VR6 was introduced.

    Used daily or every other day I'm afraid - hence it's nice and dirty now and has a child seat in the back! It's going for a paint touch up in the summer and then a nice coat of wax. At the same time I prefer to drive it rather than let it sit - it had 36k on it when I bought it, and I've put 13k on it in 2 years, so not too bad. I wasn't sure about the grey interior when I looked at it first, but it goes really well with the pearl grey.

    @tony_ack: yeah it's a nice colour - see you have an Atlas Grey Golf in your sig - my MkII GTI was the same.

    This is part of my current security system - a big stonking motorbike chain with padlock - also have immobiliser and alarm - sad days when you need to do this kind of stuff. You can also see the Gamma IV radio.
