I thought I'd create a progress thread for my DBP r32 MK4

I purchased the car around 3 weeks ago from a member on here. Body wise it's immaculate but there are some things that need attention - hence this thread. My aim is to keep it OEM+ with minimal and subtle mods if any.

The cars covered only 67,000 miles and has FSH. If also has a lucifer exhaust - non resonated. The personalised reg stayed and I think it's awesome.

Here's the car when I picked it up.

First thing to do for me was a new head unit. I went for the SPH-DA120.

Looks very OEM I think and does the trick. I installed hands free microphone Bluetooth and GPS antenna also so the car now has nav and telephone / voice control.

I also added custom splash screens and backgrounds too to make it a bit less pioneer and a bit more VW. :-)

Next up the exhaust tip fitting was horrible so I adjusted this to sit more snug. Before and after pics below.

Next on the list is a lucifer sports cat.. I'll post more as I get it done. :-)

I'm also mid claim with VW to get the rusty tailgate issue sorted. Sounds promising so far as it's quite obviously rusted from inside out and is only visible from inside the boot.

Ah I see! Don't know if its worth trying tbh. I've already got a replacement boot lid in the garage lol. only cost me £50 just need it painted. Only problem is it has a gti spoiler not a R32 one :( Let me know how you get on with VW anyway.

Will do mate - I won't be paying a penny if I can help it. It's shoddy manufacturing on VW's part to be fair so why should I pay? :)

Well today I picked up the gasket kit to fit the cat, and ordered a lucifer sports cat. I also took it back in to get realligned as it was very slightly out. I'm a bit anal with things like that.

Sports cat fitted. Much less "in your face" loud now and much more "V6" :-)

I'm sure you can get her to get out of the car.. There's always the 'Jack the Hat' method if she won't 😂

I can be rude, opinionated, and sometimes come off as a dick. I am just speaking my mind. If it offends you, PM me. Don't go whine to someone else. I am civil, talk to me.

I'm sure it will be worth the wait. Does your Mrs not enjoy the sound of the V6? I know mine does so would have no problems recording it lol

No she doesn't. She says it's a chav mobile, and sounds like someone farting into a can. She prefers it with the sports cat but still doesn't like it, she preferred my Mazda 3 MPS but loved my S3 the most.

I think you need to teach her the ways of the V6 lol. My girlfriend gets pissed off with how much I love mine but I think she's just jealous lol. But she does say she loves the sound of it. Who doesn't though??!!

I bloody do! She liked the silence of the MPS. She doesn't get cars but appreciates that I'm utterly obsessed. Her main thing with the R32? "The blue lights are pretty on the speedo". She loved the Audi as it was grey and comfy and said it felt "safe" 😂
