Front grill/plate recall Part 1 and Part 2 (VW accidentally had their staff at their port facilities drill through the beautiful brushed aluminum front grill to attach the ugly front license plate holder. Luckily they realized how lame this was and they issued a recall before the R32s even made it to the dealerships!)

User manual, Darkened Taillights and 4-Piston Letter: VW shipped the MkV R32 with a 2008 Rabbit User Manual and a flimsy R32 "Supplemental Information" insert. They also mis-marketed the MkV R32 as having 4-piston front calipers. It only has 1-piston front calipers. They also mis-marketed the MkV R32 as having darkened taillights. It doesn't have darkened taillights. This was a letter issued shortly after the MkV R32s started appearing at dealers across the US to address these concerns.
