Better than the GTI, and AWD to boot!!

Vehicle2004 Volkswagen R32 2dr Hatchback (3.2L 6cyl 6M)
ReviewI 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.
Best FeaturesAll 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 instant classic.
Worst FeaturesExhaust 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.
