The Most Fun you'll ever have in a Car!
By BassMan097 on


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


The R32 exhibits superiority in
overall build quality, interior and
exterior styling, out-of-
this-world handling and braking, and a
stout, naturally aspirated powerplant
with power on tap at any spot in the
power band. The incredible support
offered by the leather Konig racing
seats, the feel of the thick but small
steering wheel, the accessibility of
the 6 speed short throw shifter, and
the incredbile exhaust note lets you
know the R means business. After one
drive on a twisty mountain road and it
will become obvious that this autobahn
bred beast is pure driving excitment.

Best Features

Everything. This car is as close to perfect as I can imagine. The Haldex AWD system is quite state of the art. It shifts up to 40-50% of the torque to the rear wheels under intense driving, and is a function of acceleration, braking, % throttle.

Worst Features

Perhaps VWOA could have offered the Euro OEM HID headlights and navigation as an option. It would increase the price of the car, but at least it would be there for those that wan it. Performance wise, as indicated before, the car is nearly perfect.
