I've had this car for roughly a month and a half and it has spent more time at the shop than in my possession and is scheduled to go back to the shop early next week for repair attempt number three. While I enjoy the handling, performance and looks of the car, the problems with the DSG completely ruin this car for me. The car jumps, downshifts hard to the point where the tires lock up, rolls when it park, pops out of gear, etc. There is a known issue with the mechatronic unit, but I already had it replaced on this car and I'm still having major problems with the DSG transmission.
This car is CULT status. The fact that I was able to find one with such low mileage and at fair price is mind boggling. The roar of 3.2 VR6 engine will bring a smile to your face every time you start the car. Stock suspension is stiff enough for performance yet mild enough for a daily driver. The seats hug you as if they were to tell you, it's OK drive faster, I got you. This car was voted by Edmunds as one of the top cars at retaining its value, mostly due to the reliability of it and the rarity of the car. Of the 5000 R32 brought to the US there were only 750 black ones. If you find one of these gems snatch it up before they are all gone.
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!
