Wolf In Sheep's Clothing — good performance, acceleration even in lower RPM for a V6, lovely manual shifting, sporty yet comfortable bucket seats, fantastic & quite aggressive sound for a factory exhaust, suspension a bit too soft and center of gravity should be lower overall a real nice ride for any occasion, understatement pure!

A Future Classic! — I like pretty much everything about it! Sounds good, looks good, well built and it is holding its value amazingly well. Fuel economy is the only down side but even that is ok. Fun to drive but with 5 door hatch practicality!

2008 Vw R32 — This car hugs the pavement very well. Cornering, acceleration, braking, are all very good. Build quality is great. I hope to keep this car awhile despite 15miles/gallon and the navagation system that doesn't label many street names. The car looks great!

Cons

Nothing at all

Vw Mk5 R32, Silver, Milltek Cat-back Exhaust System And Jr Drop-in Air Fliter — Did lots of research on other euro cars and came across the VW MK5 R32 and was very impressed with the write up and performance figures for a car in its class. Eventually i decided to go visit the dealership and viewed the car and didn't even test drive it....paid in full that very day and drove it home a few hours later after registering. Ever since that day, i've never looked back or regretted with my wonderful purchase and its definitely value for money and performance, the awesome DSG gear box and the all wheel 4 motion drive system which is great on wet days and needless to say on dry hot days.

Gas Milage, it's a hungry!

Little White Lightning — Hands down, my favorite car right now! It's great fun. Simple trips in the hood have become great drivin adventure. It keeps up with cars twice the price. Got my little torque monster pimped. It looks and sounds wild comin down the block. It handles well in all conditions. The first time I drove it as fast as I wanted, I could'nt help myself, I screamed!

Performance, handling, practical, fun, build, high equipment levels

Cons

Fuel economy, insurance

Vw Golf R32 — Fast, fun, 4 door family hatchback with a nice growling V6 engine. Flappy paddle gears or auto box, sat nav, electric everything, sunroof, park distance, cd changer. Performance and practical I just love the way it sounds and goes. Stereo could be better,speakers are not the best. Also would have liked an ipod adaptor but of course you can get an after market fitted one. Combined with 4 wheel drive and performance I don't want another car at the moment as what you get for the money can't be beaten. Two other 'bad' points would be fuel consumption if you boot it (petrol prices of course) and insurance group is high. Buy one now.
