2008 (57) Volkswagen Golf Mk5 R32 DSG, 5 Door


Reluctant sale of my R32 after one year of ownership due to relocating to Dubai for work. This will be going on Auto Trader next week but I thought I will put it on the forum to see if any enthusiast is interested before selling elsewhere. I am looking for £8500 however will listen to offers from R32OC members.


Purchased May 2016 from a friend who works as a mechanic at VW Silverlink Newcastle. This car has been looked after very well, two bucket was every week, high end genuine replacement parts and is superb to drive. Always run on VPower during mine and previous ownership and maintained very highly with no expense spared. Full service history mainly VW service history but has been serviced by a dealership during their ownership. 4 Previous owners in total.

The bad bits…

Unfortunately there are a few bad point on this car that need some future attention, I was getting around to doing them myself this year however due to the work commitments I do not have time to get them done.


·         Rear arches starting to form slight rusting, needs attention and can still be covered under VW corrosion warranty.

·         All 4 alloys could do with a refurbishment, no leaks or crack just slight curbing and marking on each one 

·         Small tear in the driver’s seat, nothing major and barely noticeable.

·         Due to the age of the car the usual stone chips 

·         It drinks your wallet dry (Worth it)



This has honestly been a pleasure to own, I have always admired R32’s for their looks and noise. I hope that this goes on to a new owner who can admire it as much as I have. I will definitely own another in the future maybe even a Mk4! 


I will be updating this thread and if there is any other information you would like me to provide I will be happy to do so. I will also be adding more photos after spending the weekend doing a hand detail. I have attached a few of ones below. 


I am based in Wallsend, Newcastle Upon Tyne. 


Thanks for looking!
