Vehicle2004 Volkswagen R32 2dr Hatchback (3.2L 6cyl 6M)
ReviewThis is my 3rd VW VR6 and by far the
best. VW got just about everything
right on this car. The Haldex AWD and
the engine combination provide a well
rounded, every day driving, performance
rocket. Ive driven in STi and Evos
and felt like I needed to visit the
chiropractor afterwards. The R32
provides a stiff but comfortable ride.
The sound of the exhaust is something
that is constantly turning heads of
people expecting to see an Italian
exotic. The car in Black or Silver
will definitely fly under the radar
and "blend in". But I digress; this
car is a blast to drive and is equal,
if not better in some respects, than
other performance coups (M3, S4, 911)
Best FeaturesThe power-band seems never-ending and rumor has it that the true output of the engine is closer to 250hp (the same as the Audi TT 3.2) as VW tried to save on costs during US EPA certification and gave both the R32 and Audi TT the same engine management programming (www.vwvortex.com)
Worst FeaturesI wish VW would have given us at least the "option" of HIDs, Navi. System (both were available in the European version) and XM radio ready headunits. Also, its a little unnerving driving without a spare tire here in the northeast where our roads look more like the surface of the moon.
