      SOLD SOLD SOLD

      Selling my 2004 Tornado Red R32. I'm located in the Twin Cities, MN. I have owned the car since 75k miles. I drive the car daily for my job, and under my ownership 75% of the miles have been all highway. Car has a clean title, accident free, and drives like a champ. Feel free to ask any questions you may have about the vehicle.

      Price:
      $9,500 with all extra parts.

      Feel free to make an offer that's within reason, maybe we can work out a deal.

      Currently the miles are 148k, and will continue to rise. Interior is in excellent condition. Leather seats/bolster are in great shape!

      Aftermarket:
      -APR 93 flash
      -EVOMS V-flow
      -Short shifter (30% reduction)
      -Open flapper/resonator delete
      -10mm/20mm spacers
      -FK Silverlines (non adj dampening)
      -Driver/pass front Raxles
      -Gruvenparts rear control arms - lower
      -Euro R front bumper
      -BMP mirror's / BMP grill
      -Blacked out inner headlight / 8k HID kit / Ziza city light
      -Cupra lip
      -Vinyl wrapped roof & b-pillars - gloss black
      -Engine/battery cover painted red
      -Euroswitch
      -R logo monster mats
      -17'' Sport Edition Fox 5's with Dunlop Wintersport m3's

      Maintenance:
      -130k- Haldex fluid/filter and rear diff flush
      -127k- New battery
      -118k- Four corner alignment
      -118k- Rear control arm Heim Joint bushings w/ dust boot
      -117k- New FK silverlines
      -117k- New front Raxles
      -117k- (ALL OEM) Tie rod ends, ball joints, control arm bushings, swaybar bushings/endlinks and strut mount kit
      -117k- New OEM front rotors / Akembo ceramic pads
      -90k- Haldex fluid/filter and tranny flush
      -80k- Recalled coil packs / NGK Iradiums
      -75k- Front wheel bearings
      -75k- New thermostat
      -75k- Rear slotted rotors/Hawk pads
      -New windsheild with one very small rock chip
      -Oil changed religiously every 4k - Full Synthetic
      -I have receipts for other minor work done

      What needs attention. Keep in mind that I want to be as clear as possible about every known imperfection:
      -Airbag light is on (passenger seatbelt assembly)
      -Passenger sun visor ripped off from abuse by people who don't know how to work the seat in an R
      -Glove box latch broke
      -Hatch lock broke
      -Cruise control stopped working, fuse was replaced
      -There's a subtle high pitched whining noise when radio is on
      -Front fenders have a small amount of paint chipped from rubbing
      -Euro R bumper has a nice sized crack under the center grill
      -Fairly deep door ding on driver door
      -The paint is not in the best shape. It has the dreadful clear coat peeling, which is becoming worse. Also, there are a few knicks/scrapes here and there.

      Extras that come with the car (will only include if asking price is met):
      -NEW OEM clutch assembly, including: clutch disc/pressure plate/flywheel/TOB/rear main seal
      -Cloth mats
      -TR mirrors/grill/unpainted badgeless grill
      -Spare set of OEM tails
      -4 inch magnaflow exhaust tips
      -OEM strut mount kit
      -OEM suspension (50k miles)
      -OEM Aristos / Sport Edition Fox 5's

      This has been hands down the most amazing and fun car I have yet to own. Unfortunately, I need something more practical for my job. My goal is to sell it to an enthusiast who will appreciate it as much as I have. I will ship the car if buyer pays the shipping expenses. You can either PM me on here, or email me at middycent@hotmail.com, my name is Eric.

      Cheers

      Picture's:
      Most Recent (on the Fox 5's)









      This is where the bumper is cracked

      On the Aristos (wrapped in Bridgestone Potenzas, lots of life left)

      Extra parts, free with asking price :


      Thanks for looking.

      Hey thanks Mitch. Owning any MK4 R32 is a in my book! I wish I didn't have to let mine go, but I need something more practical for my job.

      Never seen this R, where in the twin cities are you from/do you work? for some serious maintenance on it!


      IMO great price for an R with new brakes, raxles, coilovers, and all the suspension bushings/mounts.

      NOT TO MENTION A NEW OEM CLUTCH?!


      Let me see where I placed that 13g...

      EDIT: One thing I would change if I bought, or owned the car... try to keep the tires the same for front and rear. Maybe you did your homework and all is set, but different tires means different wear rates, and on a haldex awd car, tire diameters need to stay within 4% otherwise your awd is in jeopardy.

      I live in Bloomington, and my company is located in St. Paul, but I drive to various grocery chains across the metro. As for the difference in tires on the MT1's, my plan was to put neogen's on all four corners this upcoming season. Needless to say, it has been researched properly, and there is no affect on the Haldex.

      Thanks for the bump

      It's not vehicle specific, but any VW model that has Tornado Red will most likely have some sort of clear coat issue in the car's lifetime.

      Volkswagen still won't justify it to be a factory paint failure. I have made several attempts at trying to get it done with no success, but I believe persistence will pay off

      Will be posting interior / bay pictures tomorrow!

      Car drive's like a TOP now that all the suspension work is completed. It's safe to say that I fell in love with it all over again, definitely going to be hard to hand the keys off now -.-

      Let's get this thing sold, shoot me a PM and we'll talk numbers!

      Wheels may very well be sold to my good buddy with his turbo'd R. I'll be reflecting the price accordingly if they're gone.

      Cheers to St. Patties day, be safe and let's consume lots of green beer
