Or keep the R32. Is $200/yr worth giving up a car you really seem to love?

Trading cars like that almost always results in a net increase in dollars spent. You won't be saving any money, but you will be driving a car that isn't the same as your R.

If you REALLY want to save money, the 2.5i is the only real option to retain AWD. Swapping to an LGT isn't really a financially savvy decision.

Now, if you just want to get out of the R and into a car that has a perceived lower cost (to sort of fool yourself and the fiancÚ), then it's fine. But if you actually analyze the costs associated with switching cars, you'll see that switching isn't likely to save you much if anything.

And we knew you were a VW fanboy when you put a period and a colon before the R (.:R). Same way you can tell BMW fanboys by the ///M. Fortunately, to be a Subaru fanboy, you arent required to type ******LGT every time you tell people what car you have.
