Just joined the forum

Sorry, you guys probably get the hi just joined the forum emails all the time...

I have just bought an R32 - traded in my 350z cause it was just too difficult with only 2 seats! Its my first VW.

I drove the Evo IX, the WRX and the R32 - just loved the R32. I intentionally didn't read what other people thought of the comparison but just went with my instinctive feeling...

I live in Melbourne Australia but there isn't many Aus forums that discuss R32s.

Was wondering if anyone had any ideas on the best mods to step up performance?

Any other Aussies around in this forum? Wouldn't mind doing some mountain drives with some other melbourne people if they are around

Evo is the performance GOD, well if you don't count the R34 Skyline, but its shitty inside, and i'd much rather have a older DSM, same engine, etc.

R32 FTW though, strong performance, VW build quality, just not a fan of the front grill

Another aussie here. I went with the WRX though (budget reasons) but the R32 will most likely be my next car.

As for mods, if u have the required funds, have a look at the HPA kit for the R32's. Base kit = 0-100 in 3.5 seconds.

Oh and Melbourne, best city in Australia (even though I live on the Gold Coast)

Welcome

performance

I noticed you are looking at modifications as well. I just posted this. If you find out anything, can you let me know please. I will do the same.

To introduce myself, I currently drive a Merc C240 but am very bored. I am seeking a car that looks understated but has a lot of power so I can drive it both on road and in local rally's in NZ. It is going to either be a Golf R32 or Audi s3. Both are 4 wheel drive and seem to have some upgrade paths.

The reason I am on the site is to find out what is the best performance upgrade package for an R32 and what is the best R32 to buy to upgrade. I dont want to go over the top but am looking at an 07 R32. I presume manual would be best to rally.

So if anyone has upgraded the R32 and could provide some assistance it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

You're not going to find a mkv r32 with a manual transmission. The're all DSG. If you count paddle shifting as manual, than I guess you can squeek by on that. :P

Hi

Hi everyone - just joined this.

Hopefully picking up an edition 30 in the next couple of weeks.

Based in Kent, UK if anybody has any mod recommendations or parts for sale!

Sorry if I'm not posting right or whatever but I'm no good at this kind of thing.

Thanks, Chris
