Hello all, new member and first time R32 owner, having lusted after one for a considerable amount of time.
Previously I was heavily into the VAG scene for years, particularly MK1 & 2 Golfs, owning a very nice Golf Rallye at one point before the prices sky rocketed. Other cars included Z4 3.0, S4 Avant (the V8) & an E46 M3. More recently I have taken a huge shine to the Audi A2, from an engineering point of view it's a very interesting little car and what was my daily will now become a garage queen while I work to make it a concours example.
I know what you're thinking... this is a little backwards. Spending upwards of 60 hours in a car each month commuting etc I've decided I'd really like to enjoy the time I spend in the car and so far I feel like the R32 is perfect for these needs. I still intend to use the A2 a bit when the weather allows, to help spread the mileage around a bit.
So, onto the car:
Deep Pearl Blue (It's the colour I think of when I imagine a R32)
5 door (I'm getting old, it's just more practical!)
Wingback Recaro seats (Heated)
Auto lights etc
It is only missing one crucial ingredient for me, Cruise Control. More on that in a minute.
Initially I've not done much, a bit of a clean, exhaust tips and engine bay needed a bit of attention to bring them up to scratch, although I tend to do a bit more on the detailing side since I like my cars clean and well presented.
After, not perfect but a good deal better
I've also retrofitted Cruise Control, although it is yet to be enabled via VCDS, I'm just awaiting a neighbor of mine to borrow a friends laptop to sort the coding. The whole fitting process was made very easy by following this video:
Next plans are ordering a few more detailing supplies, including a pressure washer so I can start the full detailing process then it will be onto retro-fitting Bluetooth to the RNS510, a wheel refurb and new center caps so they're looking perfect. After that, I'm starting to seriously consider a Miltek/Lucifer exhaust to let the R32 sing a bit more with a Forge/GruppeM intake to compliment it. i'm not 100% on this yet as I do like my cars stock/OEM+ so the MK6 reversing camera has also piqued my interest...
If you've read this far well done
