Hi,

I have posted many things on here mainly banter on Off Topic Thread and I have never added a thread on my vehicle:

So here goes,

I have had my R32 for over a year (almost 2), I joined the R32 forum in August 2011, I joined the forum after another member saw me parked up and recommended the site to me (I wish I knew of the site before as I would have saved money on parts etc… with the wealth of knowledge on here)

I know people have added a build thread on here but I have lost the photographs from when I bought my car so I will list a summary,

· MKIV, 3 Door, Black – Came with original R32 Umbrella from a VW Enthusiast that sold it to buy a split screen camper van
· Full Service History (mostly VW, but rest done by VW/Audi Specialist)
· Haldex Serviced every 20k
· Bought the car with a remap, Flapper Mod and LCR Splitter already done


Installed
· R Line Centre Caps
· Full Magnex (with mid-end silencer removed (including removing of silly metal bit so you can see the silencer through the bumper))
· JBS Decat
· AP Coilovers
· Pipercross Panel Filter
· Short Shifter
· LED Sidelights
· Bought some spacers but took them off as was un-decided whether I liked the look (got them for if I change my mind)

Maintenance
Since I have owned the car I have needed to keep it in pristine condition
· Front Discs and Pads
· Fuel Pump
· Radiator
· Temp Sensor
· Inner Steering Rack end
· Front Tyres

Which you would expect to change on any car that is 9 years old.

I must say that this is the best car that I have ever had and I have kept it longer than any other car that I have owned, I have had over 10 different hot hatches across a vary of brands. I drive it at least 20 x miles every day and get excited every time that I need to use it, I clean it at least 2 x per week and it is polished / waxed monthly including underneath and the engine bay.

As regards this forum it is the best forum that I have ever been on and it is very addictive, the people on here are not only a wealth of knowledge but are also great human beings and there are some fantastic sense of humours, I have also been helped on here by people I have not ever met when my wife left in July. You know who you are and Thank You.

I have also made what I regard as some great friends (even some that don’t own an R32 lol) and I must thank Simon (tristram) for starting the off topic thread as this thread has helped me thorough some very tough lonely times.

I have also met some truly amazing people through here and hope to meet more of you in the future,

Anyway here are my R32 Photos:

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.

Forgot to add in first bit,

It also has cruise control (which until a few weeks ago I thought they all had)

And

Miles to empty, permanently lit red needles, doors lock at 12 mph, locking beeps,

Which again I thought was standard until Jamesbaby, the other night told me that it's an addition through vag com
