In the price range of new c300, 328i,G35 and is350, this car is truly for the VW enthusiast who doesn't mind paying a lot. You get a great sounding engine (thank you VW engneeer!), transmission, semi-sleeper styling, more than enough power for non-racers. But this is basically a golf, which first came to EU in 2003. Especially the interior is feeling a bit old already (shame on VWoA for being so slow). This has been my second day with the car, and I already started to hear interior pieces rattle on rough roads. Stereo sounds ok until you crank up the base - then it sound like some economy speakers.
3.2+DSG is a great combination, works a lot smoother in slow traffic compared to 2.0t. Great sounding engine and muffler. It roars!
Better speakers for over 30k vehicle. I can't tell the diff the sound quality between 1.4 (EU) and R32's speaker. 5 door is better than 3 door (practical!).
