I have a 2002 GTI VR6 6 speed in inventory that is an absolute BLAST to
drive (200hp). I haven't driven an R32, but I can definitely say that my VR6
with it's short 6 speed gear ratio's is no slouch!  It will definitely be up
there with a TT 180 horse, and could get close to the bigger hp TT if it
weren't for that crappy front wheel drive.
