Been addicted to reading the posts for the past few weeks as ive been looking for an r32.

Originally was going to trade the 118d for another bmw but the exhaust noise is just addictive.
I am dead set on DBP, leathers and DSG, around 40-50k on the clock and nothing more than £12k.

I know dsg and leathers is something i will not compromise on but do you think im being too picky with colour?

Eg this is perfect but god its just not the same!

Welcome to the forum.

Plenty DBP with DSG and leather around so I don't think you will have any problem finding one.

Good luck with the search.

Too picky?!?!?!

I wanted a DPB MKV with DSG, 5 Doors, Vienna Leather (not Recaros), Elec Sunroof, Parking Sensors, Winter Pack, Luxury Pack, Puddle Lights, Footwell Lights, reverse activated kerb view mirror, touch screen Sat Nav/DVD with built in HDD, VW Bluetooth Phone Prep (not Parrot), Multi Function Wheel, Rear Airbags, Highline Computer, VW Premium Speaker Upgrade, 07 Plate or newer, Max 20k miles.

I think that's it, took me over 1 year of weekly searches on all major sites to find. Do you still want me to answer your question?

Check my ad in the forsale section! Sounds like what I'm selling is just what you want!

ah crap that is what I want! But with a 118d that needs a bit of work a trade sale is my best bet as I don't want to lump any money into it.

Btw is it me or does DBP have different looks on different cars? - or is that just dependent on sunlight etc.

I'm sure the one you posted in the link on your first post is Shadow Blue, so possibly you are mixing up DBP with Shadow Blue. The latter is a bit darker and less common.

Took me 8 months of searching and patiently waiting... It pays off. I'm now driving around in my 57 plate DPB, DSG, leather ... 52000 miles £10,500

Couldn't be happier!

Good luck, she'll come

Personally I don't think you are being picky as DBP is the most common colour and nearly all have leather plus DSG was popular enough. These cars can change owners frequently as people underestimate running costs.

I always say buy on condition and history with less emphasis on mileage and owners.

Good luck with your search.

very much this. Mine has had a fair few owners (last guy owned it for all of a few months!) but even with that it's in tip top condition and after 8 months I've only had to replace a broken spring which can happen on any car and a faulty tip tronic paddle. Both of them bits were covered under warranty anyway so no problem, though I did pay to have the opposite spring replaced at the same time to even things out.

I love the DSG, it would take one hell of a car to make me buy manual (no Semi-Auto option). I'm currently considering a TVR Tuscan
