I had a 2004 R32. They pack a punch for a small car.
I like hatchbacks in general.

Mine was 2004 6 speed manual.
Those years (04-05) R32 were heavy, almost same weight as sedans.

That depends on your budget.
In most cars, one thing you do first is make them breathe better.

The R32 was my real first car. Lots of memories in that car
