Walking to the train station this morning, from a distance I saw what I thought was just another Jetta, but as I got closer, I noticed that it was a Bora VR6, which I thought was the European version of the Jetta. It must have been an import. Is the Bora available in the U.S.? And do the differences between these 2 cars just lie in the name, or are other systems different?

The European cars seem to be getting the higher output VR6... which should be coming to the US for the 2003 model year. It is quite funny really, the 1.8T now makes 170 (180 on the GTI) whereas the VR6 makes 172. I think the new VR6 is getting a twin cam setup and 24 valves. The current engine is a SOHC 12 valve setup surprisingly (though I could be wrong on the 12 valve part.)
