MK4 R32 2003 (53)
87,070 miles (may rise slightly as still in use)
5 previous owners including myself
Huge file of history including original stamped book
2 original keys

Welcome to the sale of my 2003 (53) reg MK4 R32 in Deep Pearl Blue. The car is one of the best possible specs from factory and I have been keen to keep it that way. This spec includes tilt and slide sunroof, original factory stereo with built in sat nav, cruise control, high line clocks, auto wipers and grey leather interior, and of course the much loved Deep Pearl Blue paint. The file of service and maintenance history is extensive with the original spec sheets, service history book and receipts totalling thousands of pounds. There is even still the original tyre inflation kit in the boot.

I have owned the car for just over 2 years and I have ensured it has been well looked after.

This includes:

Cam chains replaced (around 4k miles ago)
Clutch and flywheel replaced (same time as chains)
Secondary air intake pump replaced
Thermostat replaced
Above performed at VAG specialist
Spark plugs replaced
Brake hoses replaced
New front drop links
All filter changed
Engine oil changed 3X + full flush
Brake fluid changed
Wheels refurbed - one has a very small chip (pictured) the rest are perfect
Two new Michelin Pilot Sport 4s
New Bosch Aero wipers
New side light bulbs
Drivers side sill rust repaired + other body panels sprayed to blend (fully documented with photos in history file)
Recent oil service around 50 miles ago
Haldex service will be complete by 05/08
New MOT will be completed 05/08

I’m sure I’ve missed parts but those are the ones I can remember!

I have sourced Volkswagen parts for all of the above in order to ensure the longevity of the work carried out. The receipts from my time owning the car are about £6,000 all work means the car will be well sorted for a long time to come.

There are also a huge number of invoices from APS (specialist) and other garages from previous owners.

The car has done very little milage at only 87,000 miles in the last 18 years. It’s becoming very difficult to find MK4 R32s now, especially with sub 100k. The engine runs brilliantly and often achieves 30+ mpg.

The car has minimal changes from factory, the only things that have been changed are the springs for Volkswagen Racing springs (30mm drop I believe but fitted by previous owner) and the center resonator has been removed, but I have the original silencer should you wish to replace it.

The paint is in very nice condition, but there are some very small marks around the car as you’d expect for a car of this age. There is a small amount of rust at the bottoms of the wings as pictured. it’s not perfect but it’s definitely in exceptional condition for an 18/19 year old car.

The passenger and drivers seat have small tears in the stitching, this is caused by leaning when exiting the car, it would cost roughly £100-150 to fix per seat (as quoted by a trimming shop). The rest of the interior is in very good condition, the rear seats are virtually un-used.

Required to make perfect:

Small stitching rip on front seats
Exhaust alignment isn’t 100% perfect
Small spots of rust on the bottom of the wings
MFD screen is slightly faint, but still entirely useable

Mechanically the car is spot on, which I have ensured through its maintenance.

I am only selling due to a new job role requiring regular commuting. Otherwise I would love to keep it as everyone knows they are only going up in value. I will be sorry to see this one go for sure.

Plate will be put back to MA53VDY - although there may be the opportunity to purchase the vehicle with the plate included at extra cost.

I have been up front and honest about any issues I know of, which has been reflected in the price.

Let me know if you have any more questions and I’ll be happy to help. I could only upload a limited number of images but if you require more please let me know.
