Golf Mk4 R32 spare part highlights
Short-lived as a new car, but a long-term classic
Just over a year was enough to make the R32 a legend. Already in the autumn of 2003 the Golf Mk5 replaced its ancestor. By that point, the originally planned R32 special series of 5,000 models had to be more than doubled – ultimately around 12,000 Golf Mk4 R32 were built. But with a total production of over four million Golf Mk4, it is not surprising that the R32, as the flagship of the series, has quickly become a sought-after rarity. Comparisons to the sporty top models of the previous Golf generations are obvious – after all, the Golf Mk1 GTI "Pirelli" or the Golf Mk2 GTI G60 also came onto the market shortly before the end of their respective model cycles and were built in relatively small quantities. They have long been celebrated classics and the R32 has also had a strong community behind it for years. Volkswagen Classic Parts supports the R32 fans with the right spare parts supply – because we started new production of particularly sought-after R32 parts early on. So that the legend lives on and drives on.
