Why is everyone who drives slower than me an idiot, and everyone who drives faster a maniac?


Driver’s seat

Koenig, leather. The large bolsters really support you during quick, sharp turns.


Rear seat

The rear seats fold down if you need more storage room. The middle head rest is missing in this picture—I found it distracting.  There’s enough room in the back for adults, but on long trips it might be a little tight. 




Steering wheel

I love the thicker steering wheel with thumb cutouts. It’s really comfortable, and the shortened rack is great. The brushed aluminum trim is a nice touch, too.

Center console

The R32 comes with the Monsoon system and climatronic. The low position of the climate control panel makes it a little awkward to use if you’re trying to keep your eyes on the road.

6 speed standard transmission

Before I had my R32, it had been more than ten years since I’d driven a stick. I must have looked like an idiot driving the R32 off the lot!

R32 stock pedal covers

I had looked at buying these for my GTI. Expensive! It makes me appreciate them all the more since they’re stock on the R32.






R32 door sill

The camera flash kind of makes it difficult to see. Oh well.

R32 stock floor mats

The R32 came stock with some nifty .:R floor mats.





Self-explanatory, I hope.  ;o)
