Should I get a Golf R

I'm in Canada so all monetary amounts are in Canadian dollars.

Dealership has a 2012 Golf R and they are asking $30,995 for it. It has 36,000 kms/22,369 miles on it. It was registered for the first time in April of 2012 so who ever had it drove roughly 7,500 kms/4660 miles a year. Yes this is possible especially where I live. I have a 2015 Tacoma SR5 which I've had for 18 months with 19,000 kms/11800 miles on it.

Long story short. They are willing to take my Tacoma in on trade and give me a 4 year 80,000 km comprehensive (power train/bumper to bumper) warranty on the R at no cost to me. They normally sell said warranty for $2900.

Does this seem like a good deal to all of you. I know the VW world as I've had 2 GTI's in the past a 2011 2 door and a 2012 4 door. Both were tuned with APR Stage I and Stage II respectively.

Is there anything I should know about the Golf R where maintenance/problems are concerned?

Any help would be appreciated. I know I'm asking a lot from you all but I'm banging my head on the wall over here. I know I'm on a VW forum so what kind of answer do I expect right....yes I belonged to this forum when I had both of my GTI's.

Oh, there are 2 hits on the car. One was the rear for $800 and the other was on the front right fender for $400.

Thanks in advance guys and gals.

It's a pretty solid platform, only preventive maintenance would be the cam follower.

By preventative maintenance do you mean replace it once or every 20K kms/miles?

The say 30000miles stock. 10000miles once you start staging up. But there are plenty of people stock that go upwards of 60k miles. It's mostly a peace of mind thing.
