Hi All,

A newbie from Australia.

I've had my Reflex Silver 5 Door R32 Manual for six months, and apart from the occasional niggle (and hard to find rattle), am loving it. I optioned in the Recaros and Leather is standard in Aust. delivery cars.

Current mods.
HPA Short shift.

On Order:
OSIR Front Lip
O.Z. Ultraleggeras
Haldex Upgrade

Inerested in seeing what others have done to their cars, and of course lengthy discussion of the world cup (if Australia is winning) :proud:

If not then it'll have to be cricket.

Joking aside, previous cars have been:

99 Impreza STi MK V
97 WRX Turbo (208BHP Model)
95 WRX Turbo (Stolen and replaced by above)
Mitsu Lancer GSR Turbo - 197BHP Turbo AWD
Mitsu Galant VR4
Lancia Beta HPE
Mazda RX-3
Holden Torana SL/R (5.0 Litre V8)

Mightily impressed by the R so far... Looking forward to some more track time now that I have a baseline on my favourite circuit to determine which mods most suit my driving style.

Welcome Panman.

How are you finding the Short Shifter? How does it differ from stock?

You MUST post pics of the front lip when it's fitted! ;-)

Hi Panman,

Welcome to the world of VW.

The .:R is quite different to your previous cars I imagine.:top:

I've just gone from a 2003 Scooby WRX to a MkV R. More linear power delivery is sooo much better.

I am more of a torque junkie than a bhp junkie.

I am sure you will find plenty of modified R32 owners on this site, although most members have MkiV's.
