Dubbers, the moment we have all waited for has arrived, Volkswagen has announced that the R32 golf will be available stateside late this summer, I don't know about any of you but I am about ready to shit myself. I want one, unfortunatly they are only releasing around five thousand this year, could be this be the sad goodbye to the Jetta? (www.vwforum.com for details)

I agree, db. The Jetta/Bora is way too popular to be phased out. Not that VW has to but all it could to is introduce the CJ in the North America and BOOOOM another revolution. I really do love the R32, but if there would be a Jetta R32 it would be a tossup all over again.

R32.....mmmmmmmmmmm

Ok, so is it ONLY going to be offered in Blue??? If so, that sucks. Like the 337 for example, I would have gotten one of those, but THEY'RE ALL SILVER!!!!! Not that there's anything wrong with silver, it's just, if I wanted to be like every other Joe (or John) out there, I'd go get a freakin SUV!!! But I'm not like all the other Joe's (or John's) out there, so I don't want to have the same car as them. But now I've rambled on long enough, time to sell my soul to the Devil for the first R32 in America (or Texas, I'd be happy with either).

Late summer typically means August, sorry Timmay. I think I'll stick with the ol' GTI myself, Im already in debt, and I want to save up for when they bring the RS6 over
. Anyway, it will be nice to have over here, but its not for me.

Anyway, congrats, and God be with you!

all the new cars that are upcoming "competitors" such as the R32, new STi, Lancer, new Focus, Neon SRT, all those cars wont be worth the money. either the neon or the Focus will probably be the best for the $$$. the R32 will have crazy dealer markup. same recaro seats the 337 has, not the badass Konigs like the euro spec one, and it will only be available in 4-door form i think. i'd rather spend 35-40k on my mk2 and make it nicer in every category than those cars. sorry, this whole R32 thing has been getting out of controll. atleast volkswagen is TRYING to build a decent car. BRING BACK THE MK1!!!!!!!!!

I went to that NorCal and SoCal GTG the other day and they had an R32 there! AND it was SILVER. It was really nice, sounded like it had a turbo on it, but I didn't see one. I didn't get to see it drive either, but I know it is from somewhere up in the Bay Area(San Francisco) and they do drive it cuz it had California plates. I unfortunately didn't bring a camera so I don't have any pictures but it looked really nice. One other thing that caught my eye were the headlights. They looked different, but I don't know exactly what made them different from the ones on current MkIV's.

I don't think that was a real R32 as it isn't even sold here yet. It could be a mod MK4 golf so that it looks the same.

the headlights on the R32 are HID i believe. personally, i think they dont look very sexy, i mean, they poke out and such, but its ok cuz htey are nice! and the rest of hte car way makes up for them.

It was a real R32 imported to the US and on loan from VW in Germany. But I am not sure what company it was that had imported it.
