Congrats on your new ride!
It was about two years ago I said to my uncle, "if you ever sell your car, I'm your man." About 6 months ago he ordered his new Tiguan and the waiting began. I sold my imola 20th in late February and yesterday took ownership of a beautiful TR r32. Its a baby with 41k on the clock and runs perfectly (knock on wood). My plans are simple so far, a nice set of coils, badgless grill with sidemarker delete (also to cover up bumper holes from front liscence plate ) and a UM N/A tune. Sorry for the terrible garage pics. Trying not to take it outside in this beautiful Seattle rain Onto the pics...
And of course, the .:R
And the first thing I did when i got her home...
Proper care, NO DISH SOAP EVER!!!!!, and keeping a good quality sealant/wax should do it.
If it was just plain defective, no help....
Looks in awesome shape, thank your Uncle.
We quit buying Red cars because every one we owned had some cretin run into it...... plus a cop magnet as well.
Guess they can see it better with Donut vision...
Finally got VCDS setup - now to learn all the nuances

The deal of the century keeps on getting better. My uncle came ove today after clearing out his apartment for a move and he found an original r32 poster from when he got his off the lot. Its numbered out of 5000 like the car. Makes me wonder how many of these are left out there?
For those who are interested the car now has 46k on the clock and runs just the same. Im at about 3000 miles with the um n/a tune and have loved every minute of it. Next purchase will be sway bars (front and rear) and hopefully coils in anticipation of a track day i have scheduled for mid august
