On the 8th August 2017 we took a trip down to London to view a 2004 VW Golf R32. I had my eyes on this car for a few weeks and it really spoke to me, I think partly because my first car was a 1998 MK4 Golf 1.6 and my second car a 2002 MK4 Golf 1.9 GT TDI. The other reason this car stood out was because of the colour. It is Moonlight Blue Pearl and one of only 57 in the UK making it quite special.
The car was in good condition. It had a few dents, scratches and patches of rust, however we expected it for it’s age. Lots of service history, a little long since it’s last one but we can sort this quick enough. The car had covered 83,000 miles and overall we were happy with the condition of the car. We agreed on a price and drove the car away.
The drive home was interesting. The car suffered with aggressive wheel wobble at around 70mph, the brakes were screaming, the power was delivered a little jerky and the exhaust was suspiciously quiet. However it made it home and despite it’s faults it was a lot of fun to drive.
Things progressed so quickly with the R32 that by the time I managed to take some photos we had already purchased and fitted a Scorpion Exhausts system to really make the car sing! Please check back on this blog for more posts on it’s progress and below are a few pictures.
