Question Should I buy a VW Golf GTI VR6

I found a 1999 VW Golf GTI VR6 in a magazine-should I buy it?
It's got a 5 spd, lowered suspension, all power options, leather, 280 hp, for $10 grand (Canadian $). Is it worth my money?

It's always nice to use the intro section before asking a question, people will be more inclined to help you out if you do

when converted to USD, thats seems dirt cheap. if its in good condition, by all means, take it. take it to a trusted mechanic, drive on freeway, do all the usual tests, etc.
EDIT: i checked cars.com and it says there is no gti vr6 in '99 in US, so i dunno.

Unless you have the highline version.. Then it's 193.. Yeah, i was gonna say if it was a '99 car then it would be a V6 golf, not a VR6. They are the same engine but the V6 is a 24V, has 204 bhp stock and will only be in the MK4 version.. Oh and YES, BUY IT!!!

Well builty, fine handeling vehicels; your talking about the performance model, even better! How much do they say those put out?

I think that's a good/fair deal, and they are nice cars, rare to (at least where I'm at). Maintence can be a tad more costly, but just may be worth it.
