      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...

      Nice review. Always loved that course in the R32. Nice to know the MK7s are running the same time as the MK4s. :P

      Cargo Volume, trunk: 22.8 cu ft
      Cargo Volume, seats down: 52.7 cu ft

      R vs GTI: True Cargo Space Difference?

      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...

      :eek: One of the few cars that would make me part with my R32.

      My ideal version would be:

      * 6sp manual
      * Sunroof delete
      * 8" NAV w/ Fender Audio
      * 18" wheels
