ive heard all kinds of storys on life of them one audi mechanic told me they last 5 times as long as steels and well over 100k but ill guess ill find out for my self .

as for track days i did a lot in the R32 including 7 trips to the nurburgring but i think im done now with track days tho i will take the RS to the ring in may as its a trip planned from last year weather it will do a lap is another thing ;)

Welcome. Specs wise it was exactly what I was looking for when I bought mine (but bought the first one I saw and made do without them).

Thanks Mike
To be fair Id been looking a while as was in no real rush to sell on the golf .

So did a little homework ref options and common faults but I'm sure you know getting the spec you want is extreamely hard to find and having recalls and faults rectified then finding one local ish .

I did fancy a red RS then this came up for sale local and full of option extras & a bonus of a very good friend of mine who owns a vag specilests knowing the car
So the golf sold and here we are today :)

After having 4 motion I wanted to stick with 4wd and vag so options run out fast lol
I always said a rs4 would replace the R32

Totally agree jay it's a stunning motor

Welcome Andy and FON. Your car looks great and is a superb spec. It looks lower than standard, or is it just the pictures? Any plans for it?
