Agreed. The big problem will be weight distribution. The VR6 is quite compact compared to the Porsche Flat 6's, and although the lower CG of the Porsche 6 would be beneficial, moving the engine forward in the small Golf engine bay would not, as weight distribution would suffer greatly.
I don't think the Flat 6 will fit in that bay, personally, so it would have to be based upon the Audi A3. More room up there. Same problem as above.
