2008 Volkswagen R32Review

Overall:

The Golf R32 is an amazing car for collectors and other people that love the roaring sound of a not widely known engine. With its VR6 exhaust note, anyone who is anyone will recognize this iconic sound. Only 5000 MKV (5th Gen) were made in the United States. and there is a short supply of parts now. It is a Beautiful car and has aged really well for being almost a 15-year car. If you want a hot hatch with a lot of potential power this is the one. The cons of the car are it is a 15-year car. Meaning again parts are limited, The car only comes in a coupe configeration for the United States, so fitting in 4 people in the car is diffcult. Not impossible. Youll have to check everything before you buy. Obvioulsy your typical stuff like you engine mounts, and such but youll have to check the deeper stuff as well like the coding for some of the components. Previous owners like to tamper with that and the car can be coded in every single country across Europe. Not a bad thing, just something to look out for. The positive about the car is most parts can fit from a MKV GTI, or from the MKV body style of the Jetta so if you could find a pick and pull lot or a part out sale its almost as easy as buying the part from walmart and putting it in yourself. Its all wheel drive system is incredable. The duel clutch system is something to be proud of. and the comfort is just amazing. You will enjoy driving the car, and if you dont well not everyone is a Volkswagen fan. But if you find youself in the situation of purchsing one. Do not hesitate. pull the trigger as the saying goes.

The VW R32 is a current and future classic. VW saved the best for the last of its naturally aspirated hot hatches. With an exhilarating exhaust sound, superior handling, and unmatched practicality, these cars are the best of the best.

Its a classic likes its predecessor the R32 Mk4 before VW sold us a GTI and called it an R in 2012. Great project car to work on. For driving it does not let you forget why the R32 earned the 3.2 engine. Now in 2020 if you see one under 100k miles in good shape dont hesitate.

Great engine and go cart like handling. Great value for a used car, limited production of 5,000 units. Comparable to the standard Golf, Audi A3 3.2 and Audi TT.

Good German Build — I personally do not like the DSG gearbox with the F1 pedals. The sound is the best! The first version that was out a few years earlier is classier buy. They also have manual gearboxes and a nice blue coloured version with full recaro seats. The gas milage is pretty high. The fun factor around the twists and turns is unbelievable. It really sticks to the road in any condition. also great fun in the snow with the 4 wheel drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handling, Grunt, awsome sound

Cons: DSG gearbox

Great Car, I'm A Vw Freak — The car is all around great, looks, performance, a quality car from front to back. The gas mileage is good, with a V6 and AWD its about as good as you can get. The car is a lot of fun to drive, with sport mode, and the paddle shifters, there are multiple ways that it can be driven.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Rarity, only 5000 in the country. performance, looks

Cons: N/A
