For Sale: 2004 Volkswagen Golf in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

When you mention instant collectibles, the 2004 Volkswagen Golf R32 shoots right to the top of the list. It was only available for one year, and it was the ultimate hot hatchback. This includes all-wheel-drive, a six-speed, and one of the hottest versions of the VR6 motor around. So when you can find a clean example, with the right modifications for added sleekness, you know this is a value-priced stunner.


Reflex Silver was one of the few colors available for the special run of Golf R32s, and we think it looks the best. After all, when it looks this glossy on a well-kept example, we bet you'll refer to this one as your silver bullet. VW made this look speedy right from the factory with special features like the wide-open front bumper, clear headlight package, flared fenders, a roof spoiler, and a special rear valance with the integrated dual exhaust. This one takes it a step further with upgrades that are subtle but they make a big difference. The deleted badging gives this a sleeker look, especially with the altered grille and hood that are then needed up front. The deeply tinted windows add a dark side to this coupe while also looking good against the silver. And the 3SDM 18-inch wheels are both stylish and well-engineered... just like the R32.


The interior was made for a special speedy machine. Volkswagen installed ultra-supportive Konig leather bucket seats up front, and everyone has the Golf R logo stitched into the seatbacks. There's a leather-wrapped sports steering wheel on a tilt column, power steering, a grippy shifter, and crisp/clear dials. We love a VW like this for more than just the factory performance upgrades. This generation Golf also provided you with a world-class kind of interior with good materials and thoughtful placement. So while it's believed the odometer reflects the full actual mileage, the feeling of this one still would make you feel at home in the BMW family. Plus, you have a ton of features, like automatic A/C climate control, power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, dual airbags, ABS, cruise control, an armrest center console, and a sunroof. And this is even upgraded with an Alpine AM/FM/CD/XM stereo with a subwoofer speaker system.


There's a whole lot of motor that VW got in the engine bay. This generation Golf was already impressive for fitting the excellent 24-valve DOHC VR6 V6 motor in such a small car, but the R32 was a whole different animal. The engineers expanded the displacement to 3.2-liters. It produced 240 horsepower. That's nearly as much as a Mustang GT from the same year! And not only does this multi-valve motor have a better gallop than those pony cars, but it knows how to feel like it's riding on rails. The short wheelbase, Haldex all-wheel-drive system, fully independent suspension, four-wheel power disc brakes, and grippy sport tires will deliver the most driving fun you've likely ever had. The six-speed manual transmission puts it all firmly in your control, and that includes the terrific growl the Germans gave the special exhaust.


Complete with owner's manual, this is where rarity and collectability meet true driver passion. Don't miss this R32. Call today!!!
