Hello everyone,

I just found out about this forum yesterday, and as far as i can see most people here are from UK.
I got my car a year ago and i have loved every minute of it. I added a cold air intake, disabled the flap in the exhaust, and added a JVC 7" DVD with a 12" sub and an Alpine amp. Im thinking of getting some coilovers installed but i might go for springs for now as im going to europe and i need money :)

Anyway, i just wanted to say hi and show you my car.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!
There are 200 mk4 r32s in Australia, imported by VW, but only 200. Perth has about 5-10, and a couple of them have been destroyed. We never got a red one, all we have are 50% black, 25% are silver and 25% are blue. We even have build plates so they keep the price quite nicely. Mine is no. 144 of 200. They imported only 32 cars to NZ, so they are ever rarer.

I love the weather here, its great for polishing, cleaning, car not getting dirty (except for dust) but having a black car with full leather seats in summer (40+ degree celsius ~3 months a year) is no fun. You can't drive it properly either, aircon is blowing all the time, and the air getting into the engine is too hot. Towing services have the most work during summer with most cars overheating. the winter is the best for cruising :)

no never, (touch wood :)) Temp gauge is always on 90, no matter if its cold or if its 40 outside and aircon blasting. It never moves

I can imagine getting in that car after a day left outside work would be really hot and uncomfortable :(

Weve had some hot days these last few days, and ive left my car in an open car park in the 23+ degree celcius heat for about 10 hours and that was bad enough! thats even with the sunroof left open and its a silver car!
