Tool fits the spark plug boot like a charm. Handle is small enough to effectively fit-over, and pull (or install) the lengthy metallic spark plug boots on your VR6.
I purchased this tool for less then Twenty-Five bucks (using Amazon Prime), and received it within 2-days, Pronto Tonto.
Like another tool of similar design, you may need to cut one side of the handle (to remove & install the top-left and/or bottom left plugs, but that is an easy task with either a hack saw or a reciprocating saw.
Interesting (at least to me) and sad to note, the not-so-friendly folks at Harper Volkswagen (in Knoxville, TN) absolutely refused to sell me this tool, refused to order it, and refused to sell any parts for a 1997 Volkswagen / Winnebago Rialta (Eurovan chassis and power plant, so if you're depending on VW to gain assistance, good luck!
Harper VW of Knoxville further dis-incentivized me to purchase anything VW for the remainder of my lifetime. I've shared the experience with my family, and hopefully, they'll stay away from V-dubs in the future, as support is part of the matrix.
Nevertheless, this tool (from Amazon) is perfect for VW VR6 spark plug boot removal & replacements, and you can get no better customer service than Amazon.
Shipping was fast. Packaging was bullet-proof. Product was retail packaged, insulated by air-bubble packaging, and boxed in a sturdy Amazon smiley box.
Summary: Amazon good. VW service (in Knoxville, TN) very poor.
I highly recommend this product.
So there is another tool sold that has a curved shaft, i am guessing that that one will make its way around the intake manifold and work much better. I went with this one because it looked more solid in terms of build quality and it said it was compatible with my car.
Be careful when ordering there might be a better product (and dont waste your time going to VW for the tool they dont sell it to the public because they dont want you doing your own work and saving $$$$$. If you cant get the tool then your forced to go to them for repair. All in all i did a full tune up with $90 including the $20 for the tool, VW would have charge 2-300 minium for this job)
Just make sure you use some compressed air to blow around the spark plugs before removing as dirt likes to accumulate around them and can get stuck in the threads or go into the engine.
I would have given 4 stars if I didn't have issues with the tool being straight. You do need a tool of this type to remove the plug wires without damaging them from you're VW/Audi powered vehicles. The tool also helps to install the wires as well.

I have no doubt that this tool will never break.
Minus one star for design. I nicked one of my spark plug wires pretty badly with this. Read more
