I'm looking at buying an mkiv 1.8t, its going to be my daily driver, with possibly a few small mods intake exhaust nothing major. I have been doing a lot of research on them and it seems that they have a pretty spotty track record for engine troubles. I need this car to be reliable and last me for a while with out huge repair costs, i'm a college student on a budget. Basically are these issues with these coils (not exactly sure what they are from what i've read) very common any other common issues i should know about? also what about a vr6 do they have more or less problems?
