Hey guys,

I'm new to this forum and thought I'd share with you all my pride and joy.

I spend my time on VWgolf.net.au for you Aussie guys. Thought it would be fun to join a more specific forum.

In Australia, the Candy White MK5 R32's were a rare gem. Only about 60 in the country.

Here's a link to my build thread on VWgolf.net.au, but I will start a more uncluttered build here. http://www.vwgolf.ne...y-White-MK5-R32

Factory specs:

2008 MK5 R32
Candy white
Sunroof
RNS-510
Leather with heated seats
4 Door
DSG

Here is how she all started

Half way since December 2012

Thanks for looking guys, hope this is an exciting stay!!

i like it apart from non standard wheels and carbon wrap inside. white works well with the grill on mk5 dunno how good it would look in england though. there is somthing about the sun that does wonders for white cars.

I like it, very rare to see a white one in the UK.

Wish there was a UK stockist of work wheels, they make two of my favorite ever designs :give_rose:
