Having been in production since 1974 the Volkswagen Golf is one car that needs little introduction and like the proverbial wood preservative product...the Golf continues do exactly what it says on the tin! Introduced to the UK in 2004, the MkV Golf set to revive the driving enjoyment offered by earlier models, the Mk1 / 2 and in its familiar GTI guise, now a 2 litre turbo, and R32 model (first introduced in the Mk IV), featuring the 3.2 litre V6 mated to either a 6 speed manual or 6 speed DSG, the performance was back too!

In addition to these options the history file also shows that the previous keeper also purchased the following extras:

- Tinted window wind deflectors
- Milltek Sport - Cat-back Stainless Steel exhaust system
With a multitude of extras, factory options as well as tasteful owner upgrades this Golf R32 has been clearly been cherished. The exterior is near perfect, just the finest perfectly touched in stone chip, she is clear of any dents / scratches, the 18" alloys are perfect and the highly polished twin-pipe Milltek exhaust highlights to the performance to come. It's the same story inside, the seat bolster remain in perfect condition, there's front/rear Volkswagen over-mats, the rear seats / boot look like they've never been used and apart from the odd hair-line mark on the brushed aluminium drivers door insert the interior is otherwise spotless.
Owned by a true enthusiast in the last 3 years and fastidiously maintained prior to that, the service records associated with this R32 are perfect too, with the service book showing no less than 12 service intervals from PDI through to her last service in Oct 2018 at 63,300 miles, everything has been maintained 'just so', there's ~£4k in invoices too!
Faultless in nearly ever way, we have to remember she is 12yrs old, this 64k mile R32 does not disappoint, this car has even recently won 'Best in Class' at a 2018 Volkswagen festival. Stepping inside, your body hugged by the leather sports seat you feel this car is special and on turning the key and you're greeted by a deliciously raspy exhaust note. The 3.2 litre V6 engine performs with a silky smooth character akin to BMW in-line sixes and with 250bhp available its suffice to say this car is no slouch. But to say the car is a point and squirt machine would be to miss the point, the tried and tested Hadlex 4 wheel drive system provides huge amounts of grip when needed and with her taut suspension the handling easily matches its pace, firm but never harsh. This R32 really does tick all the boxes, fast, involving and surefooted when attacking the 'B' roads yet mature, relaxed and classy when wanting to travel in style over longer distances.
Immaculately presented, with the highest level of spec we've seen and an exemplary service record we would have to say that if you could only have one modern classic to do the commute and the weekend blast, you could struggle to find finer than this Golf R32.

Thank you so much for your services in finding a new owner for my cherished classic car - it was with a heavy heart that the decision was made but fortunately I found Absolute Classic Cars who handled the whole process with utter professionalism and brilliant customer service.
A great portfolio of pictures presented on their own website and other suitable platforms stimulated a lot of interest and the first to give the vehicle close inspection became the new owner. Once the car left my garage I was spared the process of advertising, viewings, etc which would have only spoiled my fond memories of an old 'friend'.
I could not imagine dealing with anyone better than either Mark or Carl when either buying or selling a valuable classic or sports car as they have knowledge and experience to safely guide you through the process - and at the end they have become like friends!
