03/03 Mk4 Golf R32 3dr
£7490 sorry no offers

2003/03 Golf R32 in Diamond Black metallic with black leather interior. 4 owners from new, last a mature gentleman from Northamptonshire purchased it from an independent dealer in February 2014 with 84000 miles recorded.

115000 miles with a full service history. In the last owner's time with the car we estimate he has spent at least £13,000 on maintenance, most of which was at APS, one of the best specialists for these cars in the UK (technician Nathan trained official VW technicians on how to repair the R32 engine). This work includes timing chains & clutch (see images of the receipt). On the day we collected it, APS had just replaced both rear springs & fitted 4 new Continental tyres.

We bought this R32 because unlike most sale it's had a money no object approach to maintenance due to a combination of an owner with the funds to allow this and a specialist who knows these cars inside out.
There was nothing unusual about this car that it needed this amount of expenditure, a large chunk of which went on the timing chains which stretch over time and will eventually cause the engine management light to illuminate. These hadn't got to that point but APS were able to assess the wear and suggest replacement when the gearbox had to be removed to replace a failed clutch slave cylinder (the clutch and flywheel were replaced at the same time).
With R32s starting at around £5000 you don't need a calculator to work out that if you were to buy one of these and then had to have the chains replaced you'd be worse off than if you'd bought this one in the first place and that's before you take into account the other £7000 that has been spent.
We've done our bit by bringing the bodywork to the standard of the oily bits by repainting the original paint on the bonnet (from bare metal) and the front bumper due to unavoidable chipping. The back bumper was also repainted as this had received a repair previously that wasn't to a sufficiently good standard. In both case the bumpers were removed from the car and stripped bare of grilles etc before painting which usually takes far too much time and effort for most other dealers to bother with.
At some point in its life the offside rear quarter panel has been replaced, it's not obvious at all as the last owner spent quite a bit at Elite bodyshop Northampton having this put right and we saw it before this work took place. The back panel is intact with data sticker present so we are confident the repair was relatively localised.
The interior is surprisingly good. Yes there is some wear to the drivers seat but these were going saggy at low mileages so this one has done well and the upper outer bolsters aren't wrecked like some were a decade ago. The sought after original R32 mats are still present and in good condition.
The wheels have recently been refurbished to a high standard and as mentioned earlier are fitted with 4 brand new Continental tyres.
DUE TO THE HIGH QUALITY OF THIS EXAMPLE, WE WERE ASKED BY 'CAR' MAGAZINE IF WE COULD BRING IT TO A PHOTOSHOOT WHERE IT WOULD BE FEATURED ALONG WITH 4 OTHER HIGH PERFORMANCE GOLFS IN AN 'UBER GOLF' FEATURE OUT MID-SEPTEMBER - I AM NOT ALLOWED TO SAY ANYTHING ELSE ON THIS UNTIL THE MAG IS OUT BUT THERE IS A PIC IN THE GALLERY BELOW OF IT NEXT TO VW UK'S GOLF GTI CLUBSPORT S KY66LCL AS SEEN RECENTLY IN THE TOP GEAR STUDIO
