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


In the price range of new c300, 328i,G35 and is350, this car is truly for the VW enthusiast who doesn't mind paying a lot. You get a great sounding engine (thank you VW engneeer!), transmission, semi-sleeper styling, more than enough power for non-racers. But this is basically a golf, which first came to EU in 2003. Especially the interior is feeling a bit old already (shame on VWoA for being so slow). This has been my second day with the car, and I already started to hear interior pieces rattle on rough roads. Stereo sounds ok until you crank up the base - then it sound like some economy speakers.

Best Features

3.2+DSG is a great combination, works a lot smoother in slow traffic compared to 2.0t. Great sounding engine and muffler. It roars!

Worst Features

Better speakers for over 30k vehicle. I can't tell the diff the sound quality between 1.4 (EU) and R32's speaker. 5 door is better than 3 door (practical!).
