    Wow. 256hp in that small of a package. Does VW have the diesel option in that model?

    Yes VW dropped the 3.2 V-6 in the old R-32 for the FSI 2.0 Turbocharged engine. The exhaust note on the old V6 was a thing of beauty.

    I give it a solid 7.5.

    I loved my '04 .:R32....240hp (probably actually 255-ish that they rated the same drivetrain as in the Audi TT), AWD, 6spd with HUGE brakes. Just a blast to drive, an animal in the winter and one if the nicest interiors I've been in. [​IMG]

    They had the Reflex Silver and Tornado Red in stock when I bought mine. I always liked silvers/grays for my cars since those colors hide dirt well. I like a clean car but get too busy some times to keep up on it.

    The .:R32 is the one of many "new" cars I've owned that I actually regret getting rid of. So much so that I bought a used one a few years ago. It turns out the previous owner didn't take very good care of it mechanically and I started having lots of nagging issues with it so I bailed and traded it in.
