Hi Guys,

Finally fixed the ongoing electrical nightmare-traced to a faulty connection with the passenger courtesy light on underside of door trim(Looks like my fault!! )

Looked at a 2006 3 dr R32 today-VW enthusiast garage owner offered £7kGBP in P/ex, R32 is 1 owner 11,000 mile, FVWSH-immacluate all round as new really   
Think I'm going to put a deposit on it tomorrow.....love my W8 but its over 6 years old now & more prone to expensive repairs ,the guy said its a credit to me, which made me smile-hes knows its a rare car and going to use it himself for a while as hes heard its a better drive than a Bently!!!

What you guys think?

Cheers guys I'll pass on the Forum website if I change-that electrical fault was the most annoying problem I've encountered with the W8-was my fault though!!
It will be a sad day if I hand the keys over....:(

R32's are very nice. Never driven one but they look sweet and I have heard some good things from owners.

LOL 2006 R32? what lol maybee they have them on europe. In usa is only from 2002 to 04 and now 2008 to ------------. Nice I wanted to get one of them but like I say before don't want to make those big payments for a car I want to have some money left to spend.

I'll get some sorted when I pick it up-got pics of the W8 but unable to post(tried numerous times!) could anyone PM me and post on my behalf? :)

I'll post them ASAP, my W8's not been seen yet....
