In the next two months i am looking to treat myself for how hard my training has been by hopefully buying an R32. i am planning to own it for at least a few years until somthing else takes my fancy. but having met a few of your recently, most were keen to actually sell the car too me! so whats so bad about owning an R32? i know the novalty will wear off but i am prepared for that, the fuel costs i can cope with after owining and driving tdi Mkivs since i could drive i have got fed up in talking about how good my mpg is. any way i digress, why are you guys selling your R32s, surely they are a great car for everyday use and fun on b roads. let me know whats up before i dive head first into owning one, thanks

My guess would be that most who own R32's change cars pretty regularly anyway.. and dont like to lose much in depreciation (hence buying one in the first place). The upcoming release of the MK5 GTI will probably hurt prices - not dramtically - but hurt them enough to get people to shift them on.

I won't be selling mine for years! I love mine to bits, everytime I drive it I grin from one ear to another!

Having said that, the fun factor was increased by 100% after I got it AMD'd + Milltek'd

The stock car just needed that incy-wincy bit of modding to make it perfect (IMO)!!

I just don't use mine enough, rather put the cash back in the bank and buy a knacker to drive to work.

I will keep mine 'til the R3-whatever appears then decide to part-ex or keep it as Jase says just makes me grin everytime I drive it.. I think I'll get a Stage 6 upgrade next..

I'm keeping mine for a long time as well, there is nothing out there in the same price bracket/performance bracket that takes my fancy.

I love it to bits.

What training you been doing? are you at college? how can you afford the one you have? having been at college let alone an R32, or is your good ole parents helping out?. don't take the never never, i thought about chopping mine in for an R32 but couldn't bring myself to do finance, at least if things go pear shape my current car can't be repossesed coz i own it all. As nice as it would be, i think i will wait.

i may have got the wrong end of the stick but your reply sounds a bit harsh.i am in a very stressful job that pays well for my age. all going well i will get a 50% pay rise in two months time. hence the ability to own an R32! as far as the living off the parents thing, i earn more than both of them combined! [:D] i dont go to college and have been on this job since i left after my a levels. if you would like a financial break down of my finances then pm me. [:D]

If you're doing what I think you are doing, you deserve an R! [:D]

I still think that anything you use on the ground must seem pathetic and slow to you [;)]

Glad things are going well mate [:D]
