      As an 11 year original R32 owner, is there anything you miss from the R32 in comparison to the MK7 R?

      I'm still trying to justify 2 R's but it might be tough. ;)

      Well said! While I secretly lust after the MK7 R, I've decided I couldn't live with myself if I sold the R32. 55k miles and still looks new. Other than a few aging issues (strut bushings, B/C...

      I've come to the realization that VW will never bring the R wagon (or a GTI version) to the states so now I'm considering either the GTI w/PP or R for my wife's next car. Edmunds' product...
