R32 is a nice car but I would get an EVO MR or STI instead.

it's actually pretty nice...but yeah, i'd still pick quite a few other cars over it though, because i like a good overall package. G35c, IS300, s2000, and evo is what i'd get before that.

They are very nice cars. If you're looking for a fast car that also offers a ton of space, that is it. thumbsup

Not a fan of VW due to their reliability issues. You'd be better off looking elsewhere IMO.

I knew someone (friend of the family) that bought one brand new from the dealership a year or so back. Had nothing but trouble with it, and the dealership was more reluctant to fix anything than a Toyota dealership.

Problems ranged from issues with the clutch/transmission, all the way to the alarm arming and disarming itself due to a faulty electrical system. A year later, $6000+ in repairs (most of which were under warranty), they finally got a lawyer and sorted everything out.

The GTI platform is a very light car, so don't be fooled by the horses (240 I believe), this thing'll take off!!! VW's are also notorious for great low end torque. My VW Cabrio has a troque peak of 120 lb-ft at 2600rpms, although it's power peak is 115 at 6200 rpms (redline) and the auto in the car shifts at 5600.

yup the car looks slow but can hold its own on a track. the low end torque and suspension set up stock makes it a demon on corners

I acutally talked to a vw dealer (gf was getting her jetta serviced) and he took us for a test drive. VERY NICE CAR 240hp awd not sure about torque, but we were taking turns at incrediable speeds. This is a very cool car. And from what he said only 5000 were released in the US so if you want to be unique this would be a good choice. Hopefully he wasn't just trying to get me to buy one. Oh well the GTS is more me anyways. Good luck buying


I wanted to slow down so i can lick his tears of saddness.

Get a used 1.8 Turbo, and spend the extra cash on tuning that instead. You'll get a quicker car. If that's what your after.

not a fan of the vw. and you can defintly get a better car for it's price. just watched redline tv and i guess sum company in canada has a 500 hp twin Turbo r32. so go for it if you want. frankly i hate the styling of it and the clutch/ tranny sux for vw's. but it's your choise you could end up lovin it
