Hey guys,

Been looking for almost 6 weeks now for my perfect R but as time goes on, I'm becoming more impatient and feel like im being too picky?

Been on the OC, Autotrader, Pistonheads, VW used, eBay, Gumtree every single day, sometimes 2-3 times a day!

I've finally decided exactly what I want after reading thread after threads on the OC.

Golf R32 - DBP
3dr
Manual
07 plate or higher
60k or less
Leather Recaro's
Winter pack
Luxury pack
Electric sunroof (bonus)
Full VW or specialist service history
No. of owners doesn't bother me as much but off course the less, the better!

Was looking at Benji's old R which he sold
that seemed like the perfect example for me!

I've started to compromise on my perfect spec for other R32's and don't know whether to take the plunge or just wait it out?..grrr, it's becoming annoying!

How long more...?

Gutted

Toms a top guy
Yea, sounds it! Spoke to him last night but he had already one serious keen buyer which went to go see it today. If it weren't for that buyer, I would of considered putting a deposit down myself.

He did a great job with that R!

Yeah, I've seen that one - looks brilliant but is DSG
They had another one before which was manual which was also immaculate but was sold within a day!
