*Present ownership since 2005
*Full VW service history


"Although the MkIV Golf didn't enjoy a great reputation as a sporting drive, look away from the GTi badge and there were some worthy candidates. The V5 models are well worth seeking out and the V6 4MOTION cars make fine high-speed cruisers. If you really want a Golf laden with a ton of attitude however, you owe it to yourself to track down a used Golf R32. It's a Golf like no other." – RAC Drive magazine.
The Mk4 version of Volkswagen's outstandingly successful Golf hatchback was first introduced in August 1997, followed by saloon (Bora) and estate (Variant) versions. New high-performance models included the 3.2-litre V6-engined Golf R32. Introduced in 2002, the R32 featured '4MOTION' four-wheel drive, VW considering its 232bhp maximum to be too much for the front wheels to cope with alone. It certainly put the power down effectively, helping the R32 reach 60mph in around 6.5 seconds on its way to a top speed of 153mph
Serviced annually, this collectible Golf R32 comes with full main dealer service history with VW Oxford from the beginning of its life. The car came into the present ownership in November 2005 when it was two years old, and all subsequent bills have been kept. The last bill, though not from a main dealer, is dated 28/10/2021 for fitting new VAG front shock absorbers. VW bills on file total some £17,000, and the car also comes with its original wallet, stamped service book (2011-2021), V5C document, and an original can of touch-up paint.
