I need to order a spare for my newly acquired R 32 and will try the Audi TT as per your suggestion. What size (or is there only one?) do I need?

I got my salesperson to throw them in on my deal. I think they retail at VW for around $100.

I bought a 2004 R32 I relly do not use the tires for in the snow and ice conditions
here in Phila., Pa.. They are of no value. Anyone have any ideas how I can
sell them. They have 50 miles on them if that.

Try to sell them on line. There are several R32 forums. Someone might take them off your hands. Exactly what tires are they?

My dealer is offering me a prepaid maintenance plan through VWoA. They offer plans ranging from 3 to 5 years and from 24 - 60K miles. Does anyone know what the dealer charges for the various factory recommended services at 5, 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50K miles? Thanks.

I love my R32-only one problem. I discovered the hard way that it has NO spare tire! Advice online suggested a TT type spare but I found that it is almost impossible to buy a spare tire-new or used.
I have an 88 Porsche Carrera and have a tough time deciding which one to drive!
#215 of 245 Spare in 08 model

VW is now including a spare tire and wheel with the 08 R32. It is nicely stored in the trunk area under a cover, not outside the car, a very nice improvement over the 04 model.
I now have just over 2500 miles on my car and loving it. Mileage is steadily improving to about 23 mpg with about 75% highway. Can get 25 at a steady 65 mph.
