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

Review

From the first time I test drove this car out of the dealership I was impressed. Its true, it might not be as fast 0-60 as the Mitsubishi Lancer EVO or the Subaru WRS STi but this car was built to get to 155 MPH safely and fast! For a hardcore VW fanatic, this car beats hands down the competition due to the great refinements in the interior and the agility of the car. I have friends that have the EVO and STi, these cars need to be reved up really high to get the max torque whereas the R32 provides full torque at 3,200 rpm. The V6 engine can be easily upgraded with drop in supercharger / turbo charger kits making it a Porche / Evo / WRX / Ferrari killer.

Favorite Features

The Koning Seats (amazing!), Monsoon stereo (more than sufficient), exaust tone (makes heads turn every time). The Holodex AWD system (very fun in snow and rain).

Suggested Improvements

Add a full Size Spare. Improve the tire size and rating options (I need to swap snow and summer tires). A subwoofer for the Monsoon or the option to get the GPS Navigation system from Audi / VW. Add xenon lights (why didn't they ship them). Provide racing upgrates from VW.
