  1. it may handle well, may hav good technology but its gonna b expensiv an it wont hav the best performance stats out 4 its class
     
  2. Care to elaborate on that one? ie which vehicles will outperform it. (it just backs up your general statement mate) <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>
     
  3. It's quite cheap, actually. Somewhere between $30k-35k. If you think it's expensive, then don't buy it. If it doesn't cater to your needs or wants, then just let it for the thousands of other people who would buy this.
     
  4. in 30-35 k range? infinity G35, nissan 350Z, BMW 3 series...this will sell like any other expensive VW(snicker*)
     
  5. U mean like the Touareg, an expensive VW that sells like hotcakes!!! And i've heard rumours of a sub-$30,000 price tag. As for performance, there is supposed to be a new R32 model coming, and the 3.2 V6 now has 188kw!!!
     
  6. Yeah, the Mk 5 R32 is due to be availible late 2005 (Germany and France) or early 2006 (rest of Europe including UK)
     
  7. Last I herd, the new GTI will be the first of the new Golf-Based cars to make it to the states. Not that it is dissapointing, but I am worried about how good the car is if it has not been very well accepted in Europe.

    And if this is between $30 and $35K, this is way above it's price point. Current GTIs are just a few ticks over $20K, but seriously underperform it's competition. The R32 is an awsome car, but it isnt worth the $36K at the dealership...Espically when it is being outrun by $19,990 Neon SRT-4s.

    The next generation R32 will be called an R36... The VR6's displacement is supposed to go up a bit, and it will finially be available with the DSG transmission.
     
  8. Aha, The roumors go on about R36 then. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>

    Let's wait and see.
     
  9. Actually, there's probably going to be an R32 and an R36, but the R36 is delayed because they needed to beef up the tranny.
