Better than the GTI, and AWD to boot!!
By kevbelz on
2004 Volkswagen R32 2dr Hatchback (3.2L 6cyl 6M)
I purchased this car to replace my 1.8t
GTI. I was moving from New Jersey to
Montana, and wanted a sports car with
AWD, to help get me to the Ski resorts
in sporty style. This car is Awesome, I
have owned 9 cars over the past 17
years, the last 4 cars were
volkswagen's. This car is simply the
best I have ever owned. Great traction
in the Rain and Snow (as long as you
have appropriate tires, the stock tires
are NOT for winter), and a 241 hp v6
engine that is faster than most cars.
All the styling extras that one would
put on a normal Golf or Gti, if one was
inclined to do so (including front side
and rear spoilers). A truly MEAN
sounding exhaust note. Add to that the
AWD and the fact that you'll only see
5000 of them in the US, and this is an
Exhaust flapper which limits sound
level at lower RPM's in accordance with
German law has to be done away with.
Many owners in the US have already
modified this "feature" by themselves.
