R you ready
« on: 14 July 2009, 14:09 »
So after playing with other ideas of how to have more power and fun i have come to the conclusion that there really is only one option

Mkiv R32

Ive pined after one for years and given the current market this is prob the best tiem to sell my 1.8T and get the best possible price for it, as much i adore my GTI i know i will simply be blown away by the R

Runnign costs are goign to be roughly the same and ins will go up but you only live once and will be the onyl time i get to own one plus the fact that they have discontinued the R32 engine

going to a garage tonight to see what they will give me in px on a deep pearl blur 32 they have

spec is :


£10999

VOLKSWAGEN Golf 3.2 V6 R32, 3 Doors, Manual, Hatchback, Petrol, 2003 03 Reg, 64,000 miles, Metallic Blue. PROBABLY THE UKs BEST PRESENTED CARS, 18" Alloy Wheels, Full Black Leather Sports Seats, Racing Seats, Heated seats, Cruise control, Climate Control, ABS, Remote central locking, CD Multichanger, PAS, Front electric windows, Electrically adjustable passenger seat, Electrically adjustable drivers seat, Electric door mirrors, Height adjustable drivers seat, Body coloured bumpers, Alarm, Isofix child seat anchor points, Body kit, Front armrest, Folding rear seats, Lumbar support, Immobiliser, Radio/Cassette, Side airbags, Rear headrests, Traction control, Full Service History.

I completely envy you :(

Have you got any quotes yet for the insurance? I Remember getting myself quoted a while back for one when I was 19 and it was £4k lol

I know well havent decided if this R is the one as mentioend need to see what they offer me if they can give me a 'good' price then overall might be worth going ahead as when renewal is due in oct may not get the same deal etc :P

well whe i spoek to the garage earlier i was a cheeky sod and said i wanted 6k for it  :grin: they are goign to overlook the car and are aware of the spec as well, they guy didnt say i was talkign out my ass but obviously he needs to see if first before he will make any kind of valuation will find out in a few hours what sort of money he is thinking but im not going to have a crap price for it have looked around at other cars and seen soem way over priced for waht they are with higher mileage etc

but we will see and ill keep you all updated  :smiley:

unlikey as the new .:R won't have a V6 engine in it so if anything MK4 and MK5 R32 values will most likely go up
