    My other R32

    So I gave up on my hunt for a 911. I've always said I was going to buy one when I'm 40, and selling the EVO to buy one now (I'm almost 38!) was a bad decision.

    I've been carless for months. I had to pull the trigger on something. I was going mad checking carsales day and night for 911's and in the end I was looking at all sorts of cars. M3's, Defenders, Elises... you name it.

    Then I bought this:





    It's a MKV R32 Golf with an ABT Supercharger kit. I'm now well and truly back in the VWGolf.net.au family. I'm also able to push JDMST's sister site EST.
    It's good for business, and it's also something different for me (very comfy, more luxury than race).

    I won't be keeping a build thread here, but I will update images every now and then. The full detailed build thread is up on VWG.

    Gorgeous car Justin. No doubt you will get a 911 one day, but it needs to find you.

    These centrifugal superchargers do not have the whine associated with Roots-type superchargers as found on your M45 supercharger in the R53.

    My other R32

    The whine is super crazy sounding! Not sure how I'm going to record it though, might need some Scotty Mitchell help.

    I do know that they still produce a distinct whine, as i've heard a Rotrex (Centrifugal) charger whine like crazy before in a Mini! Nonetheless, R32 +Supercharger = Win!

    Ah, there we go! I stand corrected then. I've been in a Rotrex mx5 and that had none of the whine that my JCW has.
