2008 Volkswagen R32 2dr Hatchback AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6AM)

Review

Buy this car! The build quality is in Audi territory. The interior is great (steering wheel feels fantastic in hand). The car has grip for days, the body might roll a bit but the AWD goes exactly where you want it. Not to mention one of the best shades of blue ever. And yes it is FAST! The mid range passing power is always right there. I drove both the STI and EVO, they are both faster, but that's the ONLY place they beat the R32. Both the STI and EVO have interior build quality that suggests the occupants were only an after thought.

Favorite Features

Yes the exhaust note is a good as you keep hearing about! Exclutivity. Good MPG considering 250hp & AWD. DSG is golden.

Suggested Improvements

Minor stuff: Bluetooth. Ipod adapter for non-nav models. Aluminum :R dead plate for left foot. The 3.6l V6 would dominate. ;)
