My New MK5 R32 DBP

Hi all.

For the past few weeks I have been looking for a MK5 R32, Checked all the usual places for adverts & went to see a couple but they all turned out quite rough or minimal service history.

Anyway last night I sold my Impreza and carried on looking but nothing new was jumping out at me, Just as I was about to go to bed I had a quick look on Gumtree & spotted one that was very local to me & had everthing on it that I wanted (Appart from Nav & Bluetooth)

I put the Reg number into Google & it brought up a thread on R32 Owners Forum from a previous member, I tracked him down & spoke to him about the car & it did sound like the right one for me.

So this morning I went to see it & it is still in superb condition, after a drive of it & checking it whilst up on a ramp a deal was struck & I am now the proud owner of this....

Is that a cupra R front lip? Looks like a nice car. Passenger seat bolsters have seen better days (previous owner liked fat chicks?), but otherwise seems clean.

it is a Cupra R splitter.

Think it the drivers seat that is a little worn on the bolsters but I work in the motor trade & we have an excellent trim guy that will sort that out for me

Bought s few more bits last week.

Firstly a set of R Logo mats





Even came with a matching one for the boot



Next was an OEM Looking Xtrons Radio for 139.99



All fitted with no issues





Also bought a MK6 Climate panel, Just waiting for the trim surround to be delivered before fitting it.
On Tuesday I should also have a pair of genuine LED Mk6 Number plate lamps coming.

Holy crap am I jealous. We can't get those seats here in the states, I've wanted those since the day I saw them. Beautiful car man, tasteful mods already on it. What are your plans for it?

It is the Blue.

There are only two cars I really like dressed in blue, an Audi 5 and the MK5 Golf. That there is one sharp looking vehicle you have.
