This locally owned 2008 Volkswagen R32 is a 2 owner vehicle that has been carefully owned and meticulously maintained since the vehicle was new. This R32 was originally sold into service in South Georgia where it was garage kept and dealer maintained. In 2014 the current owner took possession of the vehicle with about 42,000 miles on the odometer. Over the last 7½ years this R32 has been used as a weekend or vacation vehicle and therefore has spent a vast percentage of its life stored in a garage. The maintenance of this R32 has been thorough and complete. Since taking ownership, the current owner has performed routine oil services every 5,000 miles without fail. The 40,000 mile service was completed in its entirety upon taking ownership at 42,000 miles. The second round of 40,000 mile maintenance has just been completed at the end of March 2022.
This included the following items:
-Spark plugs replaced
-Cabin air filter replaced
-Brake fluid service
This R32 has had few modifications performed to it. Any changes made were carefully considered. Notable changes include:
-Volkswagen Racingline (VWR) sport springs installed*
-Volkswagen Racingline (VWR) billet subframe mount installed
-Koni Yellow (Koni Sports) front and rear shocks installed (approx 10,000 miles ago)
-Magnaflow exhaust tips welded to stock muffler
-Magnaflow resonator in place of stock resonator*
*The OEM springs and the OEM resonator are included with the sale
Having originated in the South and having been garage kept for 14 years, this R32 is free of any rust or corrosion. The Tornado Red paint is free of any blistering, fading, or clear coat peel. The nose does exhibit some light stone chips that are consistent for a vehicle with 83,000 miles. The rear bumper has a small crack along the edge of the passenger rear wheel opening. The structure of the bumper is sound and location of the crack makes it nothing more than a slight cosmetic blemish. There is some scratching on a two of the wheels. There are no bends or vibrations. The recently installed Continental DWS tires have generous tread depth and are smooth up to and beyond highway speeds.
The interior is in excellent condition. The leather seating surfaces are free from excessive wear or stains. The carpets are clean and well kept. The stock carpet floor mats are included and are likewise clean. Both owners have kept the car clean and in smoke and pet free homes. The headliner was professionally replaced a few years ago, no sagging or water stains. Soft touch buttons and other interior touch surfaces are clean, smooth, and free of any peeling. This R32 shows and drives exceptionally well.
