DESCRIPTION:
This 2008 VW R32 is the ultimate daily driver – fast, comfortable, practical, reliable and confidence-inspiring. The VR6 engine howls at full song, but subtly warbles during regular driving. The DSG transmission and Haldex AWD provide effortless acceleration and complete control in all driving conditions. The R32 comfortably seats four adults in the leather-lined interior with heated front seats, dual zone climate controls, vents for the rear occupants, and ample storage in the covered hatch and various storage pockets across the cabin. This car is was my low-mileage daily driver and does show some wear (additional photos will be provided), but there is no rust, and all features work as they should. After you take an enthusiastic test drive, you will see why Automotive Journalists repeatedly select the VW Golf / GTI / R platform as the best hot hatch to own!

Upgrades as follows...
-Headliner replaced with OEM materials at a reputable shop
-Bluetooth connection
-Tinted Windows
-New set of BF Goodrich G Force Sport tires with 4-wheel alignment
-Radiator replaced
-CV Axle replaced

No big power upgrades and no check engine lights, runs great and drives well

REASON FOR SALE:
As much as I love the R32, and despite all the maintenance and thoughtful modifications, I needed a new vehicle with more storage to haul bicycles, so I got a Chevy Silverado. This is your opportunity to become the next steward of this fantastic vehicle!  Mature adult owned and driven.  Well maintained at my buddy's shop with all service records included.  Runs great and everything works well.  No CELs, rust, leaks or issues.

Another one that is on my list..... glad it is far away and the timing is not right yet, but one of these will eventually end up in my stable.

I'm really close to you.  And how cool would that be if my car joined the GRM family.  smiley

You should do it. It's the color god obviously intended for R32's to wear and everything.

There's a long and boring life story, but the short of it is that I am finally in a place to buy a nice (used, I am GRMer [cheap] after all) toy. The only think that will satisfy me is a Miata or Fiata. I must resist the siren calls of cars like this that are wonderful, but not the exact itch scratch I have denied myself for 15 years.
