Here Vw lovers will talk and show pics of their Vw's , and also give questions or problems about Vw's!
alright i've got a question...
What makes VW so great? they aren't fast... unless you put aftermarket stuff on them. and i don't really know if they're reliable. but i'm assuming so bcuz u all say they're reliable. and they aren't really a manufacturer that makes their cars stand out in a croud. to me VWs are just normal cars that people buy bcuz they're cheap.
Well Vw's now are starting to be actually quite fast cars.
Also they used to be cheap cars now they are starting to be quite expensive.
People buy them because of their reliability,looks,performance and German quality.
They also have low gas emissions too.
Anybody know what an r32 is??
And if anynody does tell me and we'll talk about it.
Or just come in and show your Vw or ask questions about them??
I know what a R32 is, it's a VW GOLF!!! VW GOLF R32, the sports version of the Golf, better than a GTi. Looks awsome when kitted up, so VWMANIAC u want to talk about it? post your opionions then :D ... Oh I have a pic of the car as well, enjoy!!!
Finally somebody knows what an R32 is!!
I've talked to so many people and they don't have a clue.
Hey Gavin.TDI do you think they will make a VW GOLF R32 ON the golf 5??
Since they already have stopped making the golf 4 R32.
I hope they do make a golf 5 R32 though.
I can see that your username is with the letters TDI in it.
Do you like the VW TDI engines.I LOVE THEM!!!!!
In Europe a VW Bora(new jetta in europe)1.9L TDI can do 210km/h!!!!!!!!!
That is more than a base model 2.0L engine for the Bora that runs on gas.
Even though the new bora 1.9 TDI engine is quite fast for a diesel, it still has marvelous emissions!
What do you think about this TDI engine???????
I know what the R32 is....and love it
heres a pic of it (i think) from the Autosdadt in Wolfsburg...
Hey Superjew,that is from tha Autosdatd in Wolfsburg.
I see you,ve been there too.
Did you sit in it??
noo....it was up on the rotating pedestal. i would have liked to sit in it though.
I did sit in it, and it was sweet.
Hey VWManiac happy Halloween mate :twisted:!!! yes I love the Turbo Diesel Injection engines, especially in VWs, they are great!!! '' In Europe a VW Bora(new jetta in europe)1.9L TDI can do 210km/h!!!!!!!!! '' NOW if you convert the KM/H into MPH that's 130mph, impressive for a 1.9 TDi. I hope too that VW will have R32 on Golf mk 5s, have you seen the new VW Golf Mk5? I'll post a new topic on it!!!
Happy Halloween to you too!Yes, I have seen the new Golf 5 pics and have replied to your Golf 5 forum with a few pics of the golf 5 GTI. From the Frankfurt motorshow.Go check them out, and tell me what you think.
What a nice car, it's the first time I've seen it, it looks awsome. Thanks for the pics VWMANIAC. I really like the radiator grill. So do you know any specifications for the GTi? Hope the performance will be much better than the Mk4 GTi.
Hey.I found some specs of the GOLF MK5.I found out that there will be an
R32 model coming a bit later than the begginig of the normal GOLF MK5
The golf MK4 R32 has 240hp,and the MK5 R32 is supposed to have 270hp!
I didn't find the top speeds or accelaration of the MK5 yet though.I wonder what the MK5's top speed and accelaration will be.Since the MK4 R32 has a top speed of 250km and an accelaration of 6.5 secs.I'll still keep on lookingfor the complete specs of the MK5 though, and Gavin.TDI if you find any tell me.PLZ.THX
Sorry but I don't know the specs of the MK5 GTI.Though I willl go and search for them.When i find them I'll write them here.(I don't really think that the MK5 will have alot better specs than the MK4 but I think it will have a bit better specs.Oh who knows we'll see when I find the real specs.
That's good news VWManiac, VW is gonna make the MK5 R32! and with 270 bhp!!! Cool :D If the Mk4 R32 has 240 bhp, top speed 250 KM/h which is 155mph, and does 0-60 in 6.5 secs, then if the MK5 R32 has a 270 bhp engine, it's top speed in theory should be at least over 165 depending on the mass, 0-60 i guess should be around 6 seconds or maybe below depending on the mass again and of cause the engine's torque. So if that's true then what a car the MK5 R32 is going to be!!! I'll try to find out the official specs ASAP.
I have no information on the A5 R32 but would like to clarify something for you. The top speed will not be limited by "mass" but by aerodynamics. Acceleration is limited by weight.
Oh yeah, thanks VWhobo, I got the two mixed up
I have the info about the MK5 R32 in a Polish magazine.It has a large section of previews of the MK5.Though vwhobo isn't sometimes mass that makes a car's top speed lower???Like for example a 2002 Skoda Fabia has a 1.4l 16v engine that is made by vw,the 2002 vw polo has the exact same engine.The Skoda's top speed is 164km/h and an accelaration of 12.4sec.As for the Polo, it's top speed is 174km/h and it's accelaration is 11.2secs.I don't think that aerodynamics could make such a difference in top speed?If I'm wrong, then please tell me why.
But the VW has different gearing allowing to be deeper into the powerband
before becoming aero limited. You're comparing apples and oranges here.
And let's get your terminology straight. You are talking about weight. Mass is defined as "the property of a body that causes it to have weight in a gravitational field". Mass effects weight but weighs nothing in and of itself.
Here goes some of my free association again. This post made me think of it and don't anybody bother getting pissed, I'm 75% Polack.
Hey.hobo thx for telling me.But that pic of yours really pissed me off!By the way how can you be a POLAK if you wrote polak like this,POLACK??????!!!!!
Because that's how it's spelled? Sorry to confuse you.
And you don't need to PM me to tell me to read your replies. I've got the system figured out.
Here's another one. Damn I'm funny.
A guy in a bar leans over to the guy next to him and says, "Wanna hear a Polack joke?"
The guy next to him replies, "Well, before you tell that joke, you should know something. I'm 6' tall, 200 lbs. and I'm Polish. The guy sitting next to me is 6'2" tall, weighs 225, and he's Polish. The fella next to him is 6'5" tall, weighs 250, and he's Polish. Now, you still wanna tell that joke?"
The first guy says, "Nah, I don't want to have to explain it three times."
ha ha ha(yawns)
Can we please get back to talking about Vw's.
So vwhobo(or anybody out there), what is your favorite Volkswagen?????
Well I think I've answered that question enough times here. Have you tried
Q: Did you hear that the Polish government bought a thousand septic tanks?
A: As soon as they learn to drive them, they're going to invade Russia.
Brand new GTI VR6 :twisted:
And why would they ivade Russia?????
I love Poland and I know that they have a pretty weak army right now.So if they invaded Russia they'de die real quick.Polan knows how powerful Russia is.THough I agree with you the Polish government is really stupid.But to come to thnk of it, whose government isn't stupid in some way???
sorry for the wrong spelling.INVADE*LOL
Monaco's- still no income tax!!! :P :P
Hint... IT'S A JOKE!
Isn't that the 20'th anniversary edition???????
Since the 20'th anniversary edition has a 1.8turbo engine, not a 2.8l VR6.
Here's a pic of a sweet Jetta VR6.ENJOY!
no i perfer the 2.8 V6....im not a huge fan of turbo 4-bangers.
I really like the VR6(since I have one)though I really don't mind the 1.8turbos.
What do you guys think of this car.It's a VW Lupo GTI.(onlysold in
My friend in Poland has one and these little GTI's are FAST!!
ive always thought the lupos were pretty cool
I think that they are really neat.It would be cool if they sold them in North America also.
The Lupo Gti, I dont like the headlight, too 'geeky' if u know wat I mean VWMANIAC. Does VW Polo do GTIs ???
Hey, has everyone seen the VW Passat 2005 concept, or is it? Don't know
about the specs and stuff, but I got 2 pretty good pics of it, enjoy!
ps it'll be good if someone could tell me some specs of the car, thx
I like it as a whole! The rear of this is really aggressive in appearance.
Yes, that's the new Passat, same platform and basic drivetrain as the Phaeton. The main difference is feature content and if I remember correctly a few inches in wheelbase.
Yes. There are Polo GTI's.
And I think that the new passat looks beutiful.
I wonder how the next Phaeton will look though.
Go to www.vw-racing.com to see VW Polo GTI pics.
are any of yall members at vwvortex.com?
Hey, Gavin_TDI here's a pic of a Polo GTI.ENJOY!
You're welcome for the link for the Phaeton.
By the way, the last year of production for that Polo GTI was 2002 so the correct answer is no, they don't make them but they used to.
Sorry vwhobo, that I didn't say thanks.So thanks.
I know that they stopped producing the GTI Polo now, but I thought that Gavin just wanted to know if there are polo GTI"s.
And again thanks for the phaeton link.
Sorry for not posting recently, I've been busy with my school course work :? Always a pain in the neck!
Anyway, thanks VWMANIAC for the polo pics, I like it. And sorry for not making it clear, I did mean if there are any VW Polo GTIs around.
My uncle is thinking about buying a new car, so he asked me, from what he was telling me, I think he wanted a executive saloon and priced around £20,000 thats about $32,000. SO first thing on my mind was a brand new VW Passat V6 4Motion 2.8L 5speed manual, it has a V6 190 BHP engine, and recomended retail price is £21,650 which is perfect. Or a V6 TDI 2.5L 160 BHP 6speed manual, that is only £21,875 RRP. Does anyone know which one is the better choice?
Audi A4s are another option, so is a Honda Accord 2.4 i-VTEC Executive. Any better options???
Wouldn't that depend substantially on if he wants a gas or diesel powered car?
yeah, i c your point, but he doesn't care about fuels. I know it's pretty expensive in the UK, but he's rich man, so what do u reckon which one?
I care about fuels, so that means that I would chose the V6 2.5 TDI
engine.THough you said that your uncle doesn't really care about fuels, I
recommend the V6 2.8l 4motion Passat.An Audi A4 would be a great choice
also.I like it almost as much as the Passat.
You can go with the Accord if you want, but I don't really like Japanese cars,though it really is your decision.
Finally I would chose one of the Passat's.
Thanks VWMANIAC, my uncle decided he's going to buy the passat, V6 2.8l 4motion, we found out a dealer who sells that for only £20,599, cause it's the end of the year clearance or something. We're going this weekend. Hope it'll be good :D
If you could, would you be able to post a pic once your uncle gets it??
Yeah I would love to, but the problem is I haven't got a Digital Camera or a scanner. If I get a digital cam or borrow one, I'll post the pics on here.
So,GAVIN_TDI did your uncle get the passat yet??If he did what does he think of it and what do you think of it?
Well...NOPE VWMANIAC, the car is good, bodywork is great so is the interia and everything, air con working fine, SAT NAV, ESP, PAS, EDL and all the high tec stuff...NICE but the engine doesn't feel it has very much power when accelerating and it made a funny noise, the manual gear shift is bit dodgy as well (same with loads of VWs), and I found out one of the side doors won't shut properly, not very obvious but it is a tiny bit bent. It has done 13,000 miles on the clock not 9000 the dealer told us. Me uncle told the dealer to reduce the price and the dealer refused. So me and me Uncle thought it's not worth taking the risk, so we left, EMPTY HANDED :( But still got all that money :D Just have to wait for another one!
Hey VWMANIAC, my uncle has found another nice Passat, same as the one we looked at few weeks ago, V6 2.8l 4motion, but silver. Going this weekend, this has to be the one :D
I hope it is!Good luck.
they look stupid
and worst of all most of them look like suzuki ignis!
Well,that is your opinion,and if you would have read the name of the topic correctly you would have seen it is VW ENTHUSIASTS COME IN!!Not ANTI-VW PEOPLE COME IN!!See you don't fall under the topic.
Vwhobo,I just found out that vw started making Polo GTI's again.You know the new style one.It is going to have a 1.8turbo(4 cylinder)engine,150hp, and a top speed of 230km/h.It is the fastest out of its competitors,the Ford Fiesta ST(2.0l,147hp)which has a top speed of 225km/h.The last competitor is a Opel Corsa OPC(2.2l,147hp)it's top speed is 220km/h.
