Hello guys. I'm Tom 21 from St Helen's in the north west currently looking for a r32. I drive a mk4 gti turbo at the minute but the dream has always been to get an R32 ! Preferably a 3 door DBP with fairly low mileage. But I know it's gona be a struggle seeing as everyone else wants one. Hope to hear from you guys anyway !

Cheers tom.

welcome buddy, personally I wouldn't get too hung up on mileage and instead focus on buying a well cared for example.

Bonjour

As above. Buy on condition and SH for sure. I went and seen a 60k and it was a dog. Ended up with a 101k

I know what you mean. I've got about a 7k budget. But I've been seeing mk5s at that price with fairly high mileage. I do prefer the looks of the mk4 but then the interior of a fully loaded mk5 is awesome. What do you guys think ? I'm thinking mk4 myself !

I'd personally rather a cleaner mk4, (im biased though
) above all the residuals will be better on a lower mileage mk4.

Personally I don't like the mk5, I also think that the mk4 in time will hold it's money better. Also don't think you will find a decent looked after mk5 for 7k though either.

Really can't resist DBP not fussed on interior. I'm in St Helen's between Liverpool and Manchester. I'd be willing to travel within reason. Seen one on ed38 but it's on air suspension which I wouldn't really want. They easy to remove does any dot know ?

No I just wasn't too sure on it. Im always keeping an eye on this and ed38 forums waiting for something to come up. But then when I see 3 door mk4s in DBP that have been on for like a week or two I wonder why they haven't been snapped up seeing as they're sought after

Ideally I want one that I can just pick up and not worry about anything and know its been well looked after. Looks like a waiting game
