Super bunny comes to US

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


About a year ago I was all set to
purchase a WRX, until I drove it. Low
quality interior, paint and turbo lag
left me feeling flat. Don't get me
wrong it's a nice car but not nice
enough. It wasn't so much beter than
my 1998 Jetta GT that I couldn't
justify the $26k. My buddy (who has a
2001.5 GTI VR6 which I liked a lot but
it was front wheel drive) told me
about the R32 and gave me some
european mags covering the car and I
was immediately sold. I went down to
the dealership and put down the
deposit and began my wait.

Six months later I took delivery of my
black R32. I took it easy on the car
for the first 1k miles (to break it
in) then the fun began.

Best Features

Great acceleration in all gears. Change in exhaust note at 45mph. Super solid build quality. Interior quality and polethera of standard stuff.

Worst Features

There could be a little less padding in the rear seats which would give the driver more room when they (the rear seats) are folded forward to get more room out of the already puny trunk. That may also chip down on the 4400 lbs curb weight.
