Hi,

I am looking at selling my TT and getting an R32. Did they change the trip computer display at some point? Some appear different than others, some show a map of the cars when the doors are open and others dont? some appear bigger than others to? Can anyone shed some light on this? Also was cruise control always an option? The dealer told me you dont get it but I have seen cars with it advertised.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Car's with satnav (?2200 option) get the full height MFA display(which
is what u are talking about). Car's without Satnav get a
half height mfa display.

Cruise control was a ?180 option available on all R32's

Sunroof was a ?500 option

Full black leather was ?2200

Grey Alcantara/leather interior was approx ?1200 option

Alot of places do retrofit cruise control - most places charge around ?250 - check out AMD or Awesome-Gti for prices

Alot of forum members have done it DIY, the parts required are cheap to buy from VW.

Satnav is easy enough to retrofit too - u can pick up satnav units from the net from ?500+

The only thing u won't have is the full height display in the dash which also doubles up as a map display with the satnav.

do you know if it is possible to retrofit the dash pod with the big trip display and at what cost?
Yes, its possible - a few people on here have done it (with the Bora sport cluster) but the R32 will be the same concept [;)]

Full height display

It will show u the trip computer or satnav directions.

It also shows u Radio station name or CD number and track number which is quite handy
i want one!!!!!!!

out of interest, what kind of economy do you get from your R32?

I can get an average of 50mpg easily with my revo'd TDI.

but an R32.....

Realistically, town driving nets anything around 18mpg.
Motorway driving will give approx 28mpg if u drive carefully.

On my weekly blast from london to midlands I get around 24-25mpg, which is fast pace motorway driving

the cost of petrol flies out of the window as soon as u bury the
throttle and hear that exhaust note WOOOOOOOORRRRRBB! It still
brings a huge smile even after almost 3 years of ownership!
