Modified VR6: 1996 Volkswagen GTI MkIII

Golf enthusiasts tend to gravitate towards the early MkI/II examples or a later model that has all the dual-clutch gizmos that the kids want in their cars these days, so the MkIII Golf is a bit of a forgotten classic — known only to a die hard group of people who probably inherited the Golf from their parents or don’t know that Japan made cars in the mid 90s…ANYWAY, the MkIII Golf and its sporty GTI brother is a good deal on the used market. Find this 1996 Volkswagen GTI MkIII offered for $4,200 in Los Angeles, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
