Had the same wheels and R32 rear on my mk5 GTI for a time, this makes me miss it quite a bit. But I don't regret getting the 6R so it's a mixed bag of emotions reading this thread. Get that rust sorted and she'll be a show stopper, plus good condition ones that have been sorted are holding value much better at the moment, so it's also a sensible move to address the body work (in case you need to justify the spend to someone!).

Moving over to Flickr, sorry for the broken picture links!

Your 6R is awesome, I much prefer the 6R over the 7R. I would love to get one myself but I'm moving house in a couple of months, first child is due in November and I'm getting married next summer so I can't justify it :cry:

I will definitely sort the rust though, I can't stand knowing that it is there :angry:

Congrats on it all mate.
Is the rust covered on warrenty or not?
