      After much procrastination, I am selling my VW. I love this car but it's time for a change.

      2002.5, Volkswagon, Golf GTI VR6 24V "R28", 2 Door Hatchback, VIN 9BWPH61J324063693,
      Odometer: 69215km

      Although appearing stock, this car is a custom hand crafted assembly and one-of-a-kind vehicle. The engineering, attention to detail and the workmanship that has gone into the redesign are exceptional. I have receipts that tally up to the $85,000 that was spent to build this car. All modification and assembly was completed by HPA Motorsports in Surrey, BC.

      Exterior paint is silver, there is some cosmetic damage to the front valence.

      Conversion by HPA included:

      Engine and power train: 2.8L V6 engine with performance cams and a compression spacer providing 8.5:1 compression. High performance connecting rods and ARP fasteners support the improved performance. The engine has been “dynoed” at 403 HP and 420 ft-lbs of torque. The induction system has been upgraded with an HPA FT410 turbo-charging system, Garrett turbocharger with dual air-to-air intercoolers hidden behind the front valence. SS inlet and intercooler plumbing direct the flow of air into an HPA aluminum intake manifold. The remainder of the power train has been re-engineered and converted from a front wheel drive to AWD using only VW (R32)and Audi factory parts. This has required the installation of AWD transmission Factory R32 MQ350 6 speed close ratio, AWD Haldex driveline, rear subframe and suspension modifications. Engine management is by means of an HPA FT410 ECU high performance custom program. Power is fed through a Sachs / HPA performance clutch. There is a small oil leak at the back of the motor that has been there since I purchased the car. Oil does not need top ups between oil changes at present.

      Suspension & brakes: V1 Stainless steel coil over kit by KW, 22mm front sway bar, rear sway bar added, vented front disc brake upgrade ECS tuning 2 piece 13.1 inch rotors and Porsche 4 piston callipers, rear Audi TT225 spec with red powder coated callipers, slotted rotors, performance pads and Stainless steel flex lines.

      Frame & exhaust: Aside from modifications to the body / frame to support the rear wheel drive, the undercarriage is like new with factory undercoating. The exhaust is a custom design with a cast oron turbocharger mount and ss cat back pipes leading to a backpressure relief by pass and sual outlets passing past a custom rear valance to accommodate the exhaust tips.

      Interior is like new with upgrades to a VW R steering wheel and air bag, a 4motion performance shifter, Audi TT aluminum pedals, aluminum door lock pins and “monster” rubber floor mats. Auto Meter Oil temp and boost gauge mounted on top of steering column.

      Winter wheels/tires are CSA Gladiator aluminum 5 spoke design with Hankook Icebears W300, 225/45/R17.

      Summer wheels/tires are OZ SuperLeggera wheels with Falken Azenis 235/40/R17

      Included in sale is the stock R32 suspension bits including sway bars, springs, shocks, etc.

      Make me an offer.

      Price updated - Any reasonable offer will be considered. I have all the maintenance receipts and the car has been dead reliable with respect to the HPA upgrades. The clutch slave cylinder blew a month ago and I have replaced it and the clutch and the synchros for second and third gear.

      With other R32T's for sale that are more along the lines of oEM+, going for $20k, it's a solid estimate that your asking should be almost half what you're asking now.

      $16k obo is a good start.

      Is it 4motion? If not then it is not an R.

      Just read, and you'll find all the answers...

      As for price, let him ask what he wants. Maybe he'll get it maybe he won't. G/L with your sale

      Price has been updated at top but doesn't appear in thread header...

      Anyway, its a sleeper and yes, AWD (4motion), with a ton of HP (400).
