it could be a coilpack thats what it sounds like to me, but im not intireley sure that the vr6s have coil packs.
my friend has a mkIII with ignition coils, and one was cracked it threw codes that were similar to that im pretty sure. usually when its damp wet or rainy, moisture well collect and it causes arc'ing but it got real bad after awhile and did it almoost all the time

Ignition Coil x2. Yes, the VR6 has coil packs. I'd suggest checking out ecs tuning to buy some after market ones. If your plugs haven't been replaced for a long time, it could be those as well. The coil packs are a more typical issue though. I had mine go not too long ago and was misfiring like crazy. After the coil was replaced I've had no problems since then.

I would do the old water spray trick to track it down. Most likely if it hasn't been done you may want to replace the plugs, wires and coil packs all together. I can get you what you need.
