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

Review

I've had BMW's for several years and was turned off by the new 5 so I started looking further afield. I liked the 330xi, but I've already had that style 3-series. Then I discoverd the R32. It is absolutely fantastic - outperforms the 330xi, handles like its glued to the road and looks appealingly "stealthy". Interior quality equal to (or better than) a BMW, too. I drive it daily over our X5 or Z3. Actually, I look for excuses to drive it - it has reinvigorated me and made me remember why I love cars!

Favorite Features

Handling and power are amazing. Seats offer terrific grip, exhaust sounds sexy and stereo sounds reasonably good. Its a terrific package.

Suggested Improvements

Why de-content the xenons? I've had to order them through a UK dealer and retrofit. I wanted the headlamp wash, too (but plumbing difficult). Aside from content, biggest complaint is "VW" shift feel. The cable linkage feels as sloppy as my '92 Corrado.
