    2004 Mk4 R32 Golf #165

    After years of 4WDing in my 1997 Jeep Wrangler the call for a 'fun' car for the road took a hold of me. Next step was a small daily driver Peugeot 205 GTi, a car i always loved and admired. Whilst the 205 was an amazing car to drive, 20 yr old French cars are not the most reliable. The decision was made to sell them both and get into a Golf R32.

    The Jeep


    The Pug


    I have a bit of a thing for the slightly unusual car; the one that everyone doesn't have. Hence a Wrangler instead of a Hilux, a 205 GTi instead of a Corolla, an R32 instead of a WRX.

    So off i go and start looking for an R32. With less than 190 left in Australia (some say closer to 150 now) there are not many to choose from. Fortunately just as my Jeep sold a Silver one with only 50,000km on the clock came up for sale, in Sydney too. Headed over and checked it out. It was imacculate. The feeling i had when he drove it out of the underground garage was a great memory. The sound, the look of the thing and the fact it could soon be mine. A week later it was.





    Stock as rock for now. Wouldn't mind some black rims at some stage ut after dropping a bomb of $$$$ into my Jeep i promised myself i wouldn't modify again. Had it down at Wakefield a few months back and was very impressed. Finished with a 1.16 but am pretty sure i could have pushed into the 15's if i didn't have a small off which bust one of my rims. Damn.



    More pics to come in the future...

    Awesome R32, silvers must be rare-as! I think I've only ever seen one silver Mk4 R32 on the road in Sydney, and it may have even been yours...

    Can't beat the sound of an R32!
    Once a modder, always a modder! Get those black rims!

    Nice addition Sir_Camel...

    Looks like you and I have very similar taste in cars, I too had a Jeep, Subaru, 106 & 307 Peugeot and many other French cars...

    Agreed, Black wheels will tie in nicely with Silver but remember once you start modding there is no stopping

    I miss the Pug, Mark. But the R32 and the MX should go on a playdate sometime soon. Been too long.

    Modding is a disease that got only one cure. Empty wallet :-)
