I have had my 2004 Volkswagen R32 for over a year now and would not trade it for anything else that was close in price. I have a cold air intake, short shift kit and a performance chip installed on mine and it makes it even faster and more fun. The intake actually increases the sound of the exhaust without sounding like the imports when you really get on it. It always makes me smile, I feel like a little kid when ever I take it through the gears and start passing people. I have had only two small problems with it, my driver side window switch started skipping and my rear calipers had to be replaced, a pin was worn out (with only 14,000 miles). Both items were covered under warranty.
The silky smooth engine and awesome exhaust note. The interior is great too.
