Just a quick note on your fuel issue. I don't know if this applies to you, but here in the States, VW released a recall on the fuel system. I had it done last week, and haven't had the fuel cap light since. It didn't come on a lot with my car, so I'm not 100% sure that it's fixed.
I don't know if your car's fuel/emissions system is the same as US spec cars, but you might ask your dealer.

he beat you due to a removed speed limiter but you are blaming it on the engine?
its the limiter man.
and i thought all r32's were limited to 150mph?

My 2008 R32's DSG transmission is doing the exact same thing you describe above in point #2 when going from 2nd to 1st gear. Do you know what this problem is? Has your dealer corrected it?
I just ordered the VW basic roof rack for my car. Any advice to avoid the dents in the roof?

Well, I haven't visited this thread in a while, so I thought I'd stop by and say hi, and give an update on my R32.
I've got just over 10K now, and besides the occasional "check fuel cap" light, I've had zero problems. The car is still a blast to drive.
Now when the fuel cap light comes on, I just ignore it, because it usually goes out and stays out at the next start. I've pretty much given up on the dealer being able to fix it.

I found this cool comparison of the 2008 R32 and the 2004 R32 at this Portland Volkswagen Dealers blog. Its pretty cool, they had a blue 2008 R32 and a blue 2004 R32 took them out for test drives and compared how they drive and such.
