2004 Volkswagen R32 2dr Hatchback (3.2L 6cyl 6M)

Review

Picked up my R32 yesterday.. this is my 6th Golf, dating back to one of the earliest Rabbit GTI's to hit the streets in the USA back in November of '82. I test drove the R several weeks ago, prepared to be underwhelmed or even disappointed - instead I immediately decided I had to have one. The awesome VR6, the 4MOTION drivetrain, and refinement and comfort not available in the competition just won me over. The headlights are badly in need of an upgrade (either euro HIDs or halogen e-codes will be added soon) but other than that, this thing is the complete package.

Best Features

VR6 exhaust note, AWD handling (FAR superior to trailing arm setup on standard GTI), 6-speed shift linkage (again vastly improved), understated looks

Worst Features

I hate the Konig seats so far - Recaros in GTI 337 & 20th Anniv are far more comfortable and equally functional.
