In a former life, I too, was a big VW fan. A succession of Beetles and even one of the first GTI's in 1979. Out here in the Rocky Mountains one needs lotsa torque (and/or gears) to get out of one's own way. The VR6 is a bit soft, but at least it revs. Too, if there's one thing that'll suck horsepower faster than an auto tranny, it's a 9000ft MSL mountain road. JMHO.
