      I agree with the comments about it being slower and heavier, but after surviving a scary crash that totaled my 337 and hearing many other stories of people walking away unscathed in VWs and Audis...
      Is it safer? Discuss

      My grandmother got clipped by a semi, crossed four lanes, hit a barrier, and got slammed into by oncoming traffic. Her MkIV Jetta was totaled, and she walked away relatively fine (except for being a little sore).

      MKV R32 is ghey, i agree. The MKIV is everything ive wanted in a car... minus about maybe 150hp and a slightly better AWD setup, but hey thats what the evo's for.

      The funny thing is that a lot of people dont like anything in the MK4 platform, especially the R32... but if the car would be 10 years older people would be all over it

      I am a big fan of the R32, I even really like the DSG so I guess that makes me a minority in TCL. To me a good car is a good car, I don't care if someone can beat me to sixty and someone else has more hp. I drive fast cars that are boring as hell all the time, to me it's just about how enjoyable the car is to drive. Anyway, here are a few pics.

      Must be why you drive a contour.

      LOL pretty much. The SVT Contour would run circles around any VW offered in the same years.
      The R32 gets a pass because I like the way it sounds.

      This may be blasphemy to old timers who grew up with the mk1 and 2, but I think the R32 is the best any GTI has ever looked. (that's not true of the mk4 in general, just the R32)

      I know there is a seperate forum dedicated to these cars (wonderful cars, I might add ) and I'm pretty sure I've never posted a photo of my R32 in TCL so here is my contribution to pic whoring
      It's a proper, proper thing!

      Edwin sweet pics brother [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] . I have seen other appreciation threads so I thought , hell why not. but I didn't think I'd start a VW vs The CL. I appreciate all types of cars, from the classic American Muscle [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] and Japan's Finest cars as well as European. That being said, I believe we all share something, we all have something in common, and that's Passion for our cars.

      Many people enjoy eating apples and oranges, but in the end they are still… just apples and oranges. The R32 is passion fruit. . Live Long and Prosper.
