ReviewPicked up my R32 yesterday.. this is
my 6th Golf, dating back to one of the
earliest Rabbit GTI's to hit the
streets in the USA back in November
of '82. I test drove the R several
weeks ago, prepared to be underwhelmed
or even disappointed - instead I
immediately decided I had to have
one. The awesome VR6, the 4MOTION
drivetrain, and refinement and comfort
not available in the competition just
won me over. The headlights are badly
in need of an upgrade (either euro
HIDs or halogen e-codes will be added
soon) but other than that, this thing
is the complete package.
Best FeaturesVR6 exhaust note, AWD handling (FAR superior to trailing arm setup on standard GTI), 6-speed shift linkage (again vastly improved), understated looks
Worst FeaturesI hate the Konig seats so far - Recaros in GTI 337 & 20th Anniv are far more comfortable and equally functional.
