I’ve owned and modified over 25 cars, most of the time it was a car a year, then I bought this Supercharged R32 Golf and well that fucked everything.
I’ve owned this car for 3 years now, that’s a first!!! I’ve never owned a daily driver for longer. The car is a trap. It’s the perfect compromise; it’s highly modified but feels OEM+ and it’s also fully engineered. Cops ignore it, the interior is a lovely place to be, especially in traffic, it sounds amazing, is super easy to drive, has enough power to take most people at the lights and I don’t find myself ever being embarrassed to be in it (sometimes in my other cars I’d wish I was in my GT-R if something flash pulled up next to me at the lights, or I’ve had to take girlfriends or family members in raw track oriented cars to dinner, not good!).
Anyways, over the past 3 years I’ve had 2 serious offers to buy the car off me, both offers were substantial and logic should have seen me let the car go, but I couldn’t.
I’ve just had another serious offer. Now 3 years in… I think I’m going to let her go this time.
Thing is, the kid buying it is half my age. I mean, holy shit this is a lot of car, even for me!!! Where the fuck does one go after owning a car like this so early in life? I feel the next owner, if young, is going to have a hard time trying to find better cars to own in life after this one (I mean seriously I’m confused as to what I’d get for a daily after selling this?!).
