      I bought my 2004 Black Magic Pearl R32 at Valenti Volkswagen in Mystic, Connecticut Dec 8, 2008 as aaCPO. Traded my MK5 2006 BMP GTI. Since then its been through many changes and some im alittle ashamed of. I bought the .:R 32 with 64,644 miles. Not going to lie, it sounded flipping amazing. I was sold haha.

      EDIT: The original Thread how my car came to Be.

Well the Aftermarket “MEYLE” ball joint I purchased from German Autoparts ( GAP ) doesn’t include a flanged nut as in the OEM Nut. Once Matt brought this to GAPs attention, they emailed MEYLE and was able to get their ball joints revised with a flanged Nut! WIN.

      Interesting! I bought some TRW branded ball joints a couple of years ago for my TT Quattro (same as R32) and I noticed they had the wrong nuts on them too.

      I noticed that it looked like the nut could potentially pull through so I stopped and contacted the supplier and they sent me the correct flanged nuts. Something for everyone to check when doing ball joints as it looks like other manufacturers may be making the same mistake.
