R32 Really Delivers

ReviewThough the R32 is a potent machine, boy racers need not apply. It has been engineered to deliver a fine balance between a high performance driving experience and a supple daily driver that you can live with. Engine and mechanical sounds are fabulous, stops like crazy, and for added safety it offers great grip in the wet (phenomenal even.) And in black, as mine is, it doesn't attract a lot of attention. It does sometimes go too fast, but we're working on that togther.
Best FeaturesEngine and six speed transmission pairing is particularly effective. It has an abundance of torque that maxes at around 2850 rpm and just keeps delivering. Makes for a very flexible ride -- no need to flog it to make it go fast, unless of course you want to!
Worst FeaturesCould use a diet. It is great now, but with 500 lbs less, it would be greater. Bi-xenons would be nice, as they have in Europe. And a slightly larger rear sway bar wouldn't hurt.
