DSG is a dream to use. Sport shift is even better. I don't need a stick shift anymore. The paddles are so much fun to use.
2008 Volkswagen R32.:R32 driver - Ft. Lauderdale, FL10/05/2009
Under my vehicle cercumstances at the time, I could not pass up this car for the price. Overall I'm very happy with it. I was cross-shopping Mercedes C230 sports, was hoping to find a C350 Sport, but could no longer wait.
-AWD is Awesome! VERY solid
-Styling is very good! Very Youthful
-Exhaust looks and sounds fantastic
-interior is very roomy and comfortable
-great factory stereo, 3-way components in the doors! (although an upgrade is needed, it's a good starting point)
-Feels high class
-Projector headlamps are COOL!
Should be aware of:
-High cost of regular maintence (was quoted $950 for the 40K mi. service from VW) DSG flush, AWD system flush, and other services.
-Would prefer a Standard tranny, DSG is not very inspiring
-Average around 21mpg (lots of highway driving)
-Not as much POWER as would be expected (I was coming from an 03' 20th AE GTI, which felt stronger on the freeway, and returned much better mileage)
2004 Volkswagen R32B0b - MD/DC05/30/2008
This is the best car I've ever owned. AWD. Great looking car. It growls with power. 240hp/236tq. It's just enough power to get around, but it doesn't feel like a track car like an sti or an evo. I daily drive this car about 60-80 miles a day and I've had no problems with it. The Koenig Leather Seats feel so comfortable. The back seat isn't that bad either. Everytime I get in it I'm excited to drive it again. Sometimes I stop at yellow lights just to be the first one to take off on green.. hahaha!
