      I totally understand the seat issue. In my case the seats in my 02 Jetta wgn, the 03 Eurovan, our 11 Touareg, and my 08 R32 were/are extremely comfortable on long trips. My B5.5 Passat, however,...

      First, congrats on your R32 purchase. I think the 2008 R32 is an outstanding car. Mine is the best car I have ever owned in over 45 years of driving/automobile ownership.

      Welcome!

      I am in total agreement with the statement that TR is the best color of all.

      I purchased my TR 08 R32 in March of 2008 with 12 or so miles on it. My R32 hibernates during the salty NW...

      The insurance on the VWs really have me shaking my head.

      I was quoted around $335/6month on a Golf R, which is close to what I pay on my 2008 R32. I was quoted $280/6month on a new 2014 Dodge...

      This has been an interesting vehicle. We owned a 2010 for a little over a year. The brakes are horrible. Even when not warped, they simply do not stop a fully loaded vehicle in a safe distance. ...

      I totally agree. Along with the fact that this is the single worst NAV system I have ever used. Unreliable and unpredictable.

      I agree, along with the worry about the water pumps.

      I also do not like the fact that the Golf R revs so high when cruising at 65 mph. My wife typically asks me if it is time to shift.

      I also...

      I love my 2008 R32. There is much about my Golf R that I hate.

      I would recommend that you drive the Golf R longer than a normal test drive.

      In the Golf R you are giving up the DSG, the VR6,...

      OK. I definitely miss the 6 cyl AND the DSG. The Golf R needs at least one more gear as it revs entirely too high at normal highway cruising speeds. My wife on more than one occasion has asked me...
