  1. *Courtesy of VW Vortex - See the full article and more pics here Spy pics of a Tiguan testing in Germany! And, despite the fact that there’s very little in the way of camouflage, this may be one of the Volkswagen Group’s most mysterious test cars! Whereas it usually goes for dazzle camo, VW has this time decided to go with conflicting information. What you see is clearly a Tiguan body, that much is clear, but what isn’t so clear is why there are so many Audi bits attached to it. Those oval tailpipes? Pure Audi Sport. The wheels? Audi. The Ingolstadt license plate is another Audi hallmark. And finally, the engine, we’re told, has the distinct sound of an inline 5. We’ve known that a Tiguan was testing with Audi’s engine since late August when a video emerged of the car testing at the Nurburgring. Back then, we thought it might be because the Tiguan would get that engine, but now the online consensus seems to be that this is an RS Q3 wearing an elaborate disguise. It wouldn’t be the first time that the VW Group went to such lengths. Volkswagen dressed up Atlas test cars like Jeeps and Kias when they were testing. They didn’t own the badges, though, so they couldn’t fully commit to the camo. With both vehicles owned by the same group, it could be that Audi just decided to follow through. It does make sense, meanwhile, that VW would plug a Golf R engine into a Tiguan R since the engine fits the chassis. Audi has been working with its Group-mates lately, though. Audi and Porsche have been using the same twin-turbo V6 and twin turbo V8 a lot lately, so the idea of the brand sharing its engine with VW isn’t farfetched. Notice the giant oval pipes make another appearance on a potential VW R... Whatever the case, we’ll continue to follow this story as it develops. View full article
  2. Morning everyone, Has anyone else had any luck getting any information from Akrapovic regarding ordering the exhaust as an aftermarket option? I have finally received a response from them saying the downpipe will be available to order in a couple of weeks time. I am more interested in the full system though!
  3. R Estate Rear Lights

    Has anyone got the details of the light bulbs used in the rear lights for the Mk7.0 Golf R Estate? Including indicators, brake lights, side lights, fog light and reversing lights. Need to get some spare lamps, but unable to read the print usually found on the glass of the lamps.
  4. Burger Tuning is a US based company that specializes in advanced plug and play units. The company was formed in 2008 and has predominantly focused on the BMW market where we have had great success. Our units power the strongest OEM turbo BMW's and hold records across all the models. More can be viewed at our website www.burgertuning.com. We would like to introduce VWROC users to our latest offering and entry into the VAG Group market which we entered a year ago after two years of extensive development and testing. The Burger Tuning JB1 is a plug and play solution offering simple at home tuning without requiring ECU access to achieve power goals. These units are now available and a ready for order at http://burgertuning.com/vw_volkswagen_Group1_JB1_tuner.html with a retail price of $379 plus $35 for the optional data cable. The JB1 is a true plug and play tune offering safe and adjustable gains. It can be installed and removed in minutes. The unit ships with a base setting in map 1 that increases the boost by +4.8psi over stock that is safe to be used with 95RON and up. The typical power gains on the setting are 55hp and 70ft lb. With higher octane accompanied with bolt ons and octane we have seen gains of 85hp and 90ft lb in Map 1. All of this whilst keeping the engines stock fail safes in place. Install instructions: Install instructions can be found here: http://burgertuning.com/instructions/S1_VAG_EA888_G3.pdf User interface software: For users that have opted to purchase the optional BMS Data Cable you will need to download and install the Windows user interface at this link http://www.n54tech.com/flash_files/jb4_interface.zip For MAC there is a 3rd party interface that seems to be working well on the JB, it can be downloaded at the bottom of post 1 of this thread http://www.n54tech.com/forums/showthread.php?t=21742 Directions on how to connect and change firmware: Directions on installing the interface and connecting to your JB can be found here http://www.n54tech.com/forums/showpost.php?p=197021&postcount=1 Firmware is what runs the JB1 unit. As we release updates or new firmware versions this can be uploaded to your unit free of charge. A tutorial for software installation as well as map changing and settings can be viewed here: http://youtu.be/MjQjMWBVve4 Map selection: In order to change the map in the picture below under the logging tab you can pick the required map. Under status the unit must show connected. This is done by clicking file and selecting connect. Upon shipping the following maps are active: Map 0: Stock with complete pass through i.e. the JB1 does nothing Map 1: Optimized tuned map, this supports 91 octane at the base boost setting as well as bolt ons. Map 3: Map three allows the JB1 to be the methanol controller working as a fail safe cutting boost if lack of meth flow is detected. You will require a Coolingmist FSB to get this working. Map 6: User adjustable boost profile (see below) Active on units that ship 30.09.2015 and after. If you have previously purchased your unit before reading this please email me george@burgertuning.com to receive a copy of the firmware. This map comes preset with low torque settings that are suitable for manual cars. Map 1 Boost settings: Below is a diagram of where the user adjustment is made for boost over stock circled in blue. Add in the value and click save. Map 6 boost setting: For map 6 you will need to connect to the unit and select map 6. If you have previously purchased your unit before reading this please email me george@burgertuning.com to receive a copy of the firmware. On units that ship from 30.09.2015 there is no need. If your unit has a exposed blue wire you will need to email. Below is where you enter the values for map 6 circled in orange. It works similar to map 1 so the value is the additional boost over stock. The unit can log boost the elevated boost on the two sensors, ECU boost as well as the rail pressure. The balance of the engine parameters and settings in the picture are exclusive to the yet to be released JB4 but it gives you a idea of what is to come. Users with boost gauges that are working off the OBD signal will only see stock boost. If you suspect you triggered a engine light by unplugging a sensor by not waiting for the car to go into sleep mode rather clear faults before a dealer visit. This thread can be used for support queries but its best to email me george@burgertuning.com and include model, fuel used and hardware on the car. Burger Tuning is a community based company so feel free to ask any questions you have on this thread as it will assist others too.
  5. long time lurker

    Hi guys, currently looking for a golf r, looking at the usual vw main site, auto trader etc... anyone have any other websites they can recommend..? Also can anyone recommend a tracker? or some extra form of security as i am from west Yorkshire and these things are known to get nabbed... hope to be in one soon! coming from a f10 535d
  6. Quite a few people now have taken delivery of their R so with the well documented delays people have been talking about, I thought it may be interesting to put some numbers to this delay - is it really as bad as we think its been compared to others? So, hopefully the poll has worked and should provide a simple visual guide to the time people have been waiting... Ive added months to keep things simple and I imagine VW cant actually build and deliver a vehicle in less than 3 months but Ive added the option for completeness. Can you round your time up or down to the nearest month please? For consistency, anything over 16 days into the month is up, 15 and under is down
  7. Tiguan R anyone?

  8. So, here is my journey in short with the mk7r. English is not my native language, so keep that in mind. TL;DR is at the end. I received the car in 16 July 2014; a black perl beauty with leather seats, discover media nav and tinted windows. Wanted a few bits more, but I settled for that configuration as I needed the car quickly for a summer roadtrip through Europe. As if the three months waiting wasn't enough, even without having test-driven the car beforehand. Oh, I also ticked the box for that extended 3 years guarantee - more about that later on. Having traded in my white mk6r for mk7r, I knew for a fact that it would come in handy. That and the €10/month service plan. On the delivery date, all was good. So many emotions and feelings. Handling was better than my mk6r, less understeering. But the interior felt like a grade worse with greyish leather seats and dark tone of grey overall instead of black that I was used to. The honeymoon ended when I got home, opened the passager door and saw a large spot of about 10cm of bad paint. The clearcoat or the paint beneath it was greyish. Dealer looked at it and told me that they would respray that part for free, but that would have to be done after the summer. I was devastated... Did they even check the car before delivery? So many questions that run though my head. Was not keen of having a brand new car resprayed. Luckily my car detailing guys had an other suggestion. They grabbed the polishing machine and presto, all it needed was some TLC. Apparently the clearcoat was a bit fussy and it needed some work. Crisis avoided. A few days later the journey from Stockholm, Sweden though Europe begun. The cruise control was amazing, same with the nav as it navigated us away from queuing in traffic or car accidents. Halfway through, when we stopped for gas I noticed that the left plastic wing on the boot window had come loose. The adhesive tape didn't like the +40C weather at all. Instant glue to the rescue. Dealer fitted new parts on the first service when we got back from our 4 week roadtrip. Nothing else to report, car was doing great. A few months later; the ACC radar was acting up. Dealer installed new part, was ok for a few weeks. Problem reappeared, dealer updated software. Got the car, the next day back from work the car starts holding high revs and acting strange. Car gets towed to dealer, they update software (apparently loaded wrong version previously...). Car runs great again. Forward to 1 jan 2015. Goes out to the car with the wife, someone nicked the side mirrors. Yay! Took 3 weeks to get replacement parts. Februari 2015, stone hits the windshield and cracks it. Car gets to dealer for replacement, notice that someone has added black paint on the left A-pillar and scuffs on the hood. Apparently the guy who did the job was a rookie and tried to mask the damage.. great. Dealer pays for paint job and loaner. Few weeks later the start-stop has begun giving me errors. Dealer changes something with a purge valve in the gas tank. Car is ok. October 2015, someone has left of their white paint on my black rear bumper. Off to get that fixed. Gets car back, noticed after a rainy day that the boot rubber was not inserted correctly and water was running in the car. Fixed that myself. Beginning of 2016, start-stop has been acting up again. Dealer can't find anything wrong. Does that occasionally through all summer. September 2016, only front wheel drive. Off to an other dealer, haldex pump is gone - gets replaced. Goes to collect car, notice a dent on the left side before drivers door. Dealer claims they have no liability due to car was parked in dealers parking lot (what?). They give in after a while and say they will fix the car. Driving off with the loaner, expecting dealer to call. Get the call after 3 days, drives back check the car. Paint is like an orange that was due 4 weeks ago. Dealer agrees to take care of it, again. Gets an other call after 3 days, claiming that the car is top notch. Drives back, car looks good although they managed to mess up the screws for the wheel arch and scratched the bonnet. Nvm, I'm off to my brothers to change to winter tires. Front tyres are toast, especially the right one. If you had a car on a track, you know what I'm talking about. Tried to get hold of dealer, no answer back. Why am I not surprised..? Mars 2017, coolant a bit lower than the min-level. Dropping by each day. Installed dashcam. May 2017, New water pump installed. Still issues with start-stop, no errors found. August 2017, boot hinges sounds like Darth vader. Booked to fix that and hopefully start-stop issues. Luckily, I haven't spent a dime on those repairs and servicing. Car is at 52k km now and with two years left of warranty, only the dealers know what they might make a mess of again. What I have been paying with instead is time. Time to leave early from work, time to fix problems that shouldn't have happened. I still haven't found a dealer I can trust. TL;DR Car is great, has some problems (Boot plastic wings, ACC radar, Haldex, Water pump). Dealers make a mess when fixing problems. Installed dashcam. Car detailers keep the car top notch. Get extended warranty, turbo still holding. Start-stop still acting up.
  9. Proud new owner!

    Hi folks, Proud new owner of a mint, low-mileage R over in Northern Ireland. Got it for a steal and best car I've owned by a country mile.

  10. Sounds Incredible! IE Cold Air Intake

    Closed airbox intakes are okay if you want to keep the sound low, but what options are there if you want more drama, an aggressive intake roar? In-step Integrated Engineering, IE have created a Cold Air Intake with all of the ingredients which create a quite frankly ridiculous intake sound, whilst looking great and delivering performance gains which exceed much of the competition! IE does this by incorporating a range of market leading features, such as a huge 3 inch intake pipe going down to the turbo elbow and 5 inch filter mounted to a velocity stack. These three features help to produce an intake which flows around 17% better than stock. All of this sits beautifully in the engine bay thanks to the supplied stealth coolant hose which relocates the stock one to under the intake, rather than sitting unsightly on top. The filter is protected from the engine bay heat thanks to a custom heat shield. Checkout the incredible sound in this video above! Dyno Verified Performance Gains: So what does 17% increase in flow actually mean? Well, the IE intake delivers performance gains right across the rev range up until the rev limiter with maximum gains of a huge 15hp and 20lbfts. Checkout the graph below to see these detailed. Dotted Lines = Stock car + APR Stage 1 ECU & DSG Solid Lines = Above + IE Cold Air Intake Integrated Engineering Intakes are held in-stock and ready to ship, both in open and Carbon forms. These fit MQB chassis vehicles such as the MK7 Golf GTI, MK7 Golf R, 8V S3 and more! Further Info & Purchase Links IE Open Cold Air Intake IE Carbon Cold Air Intake What do you think?

  13. Decisions

    Hi all, Looking for a bit of advice and hoping some of you have driven a couple of these so you can give me a comparison. Im starting to get bored of the R. It really is the perfect all rounder but it's just too easy to drive fast. I don't know whether to stick with the R and hopefully grow out of the phase or go for either a E92 M3 or 235I. Help me out, I need some advice!
  14. Another crash...

  15. 07 June approx 1945hrs. I gave way to you at the Scilly Isles Junction - while you came flying down the A307 - you had a female companion with you. I then caught up with you in between the traffic on the A309 - but then you moved to the lane turning onto Manor Road South by the Shell Station and I carried on straight. You on here mate? 🙂
  16. Vw cup Snetterton race meeting

    Racing the Team Hard Golf R in the Vw Cup this weekend at Snetterton. Qualifying went really well finished in pole position ahead of the next man by 3tenths of a second and setting a new lap record . So on to race one,with the weather being so hot tyre conservation was going to be a key part of our race strategy. ( we are allowed 4 new slick tyres per race meeting. We used 2 new tyres for quali) We decided not to run the new slick tyres for race one and used the tyres we ran in qualifying. Not getting a fantastic start due to tyres I drop back a few places but after a few laps I was back up to 2nd place and having a good race with the lead man. Crossing the finish line in second place and setting a new lap record, however I was declared the winner due to the first place man cutting across the grass on two occasions and being handed a time penalty. race 2 was probably one of the hardest races I have ever been in. starting in sixth place due to the reversed grid system that we run and carrying 40KG of success ballast from the first race I knew I had it all to do. With new slick tyres on I knew that I needed to carry a lot of speed through the corners due to the extra weight,driving like my life depended on it I eventually brought the car home in second place and once again setting The fastest lap of the race Bit of a break for a while now. we return to Brands Hatch in August for 2 race meetings, The British GT meeting and the Deutsche fest http://www.deutschefest.co.uk/ which I realy am looking foward too. if your going please come over and say high also give me a follow on Twitter @BTMotorsport
  17. VW CUP Racing Rockingham

    Hi Guys So I was at the fast Rockingham Speedway a few weeks ago in the newly built Golf R for the second round of the 2017 VW cup championship ,which is part of the support series for the prestigious British GT championship. We turned up to the Corby Speed drome on the Friday for some pre race testing and a photos shoot for my new sponsors GKR Scaffolding. With the photo-shoot over running, because either A. I'm vain and I would not let the photographer leave ( I was like your misses on her wedding day, "come on just one more photo of me on my big day) OR B. I'm Ruddy ugly and the photographer could not get a good shot of me, because its not the car, the car is gorgeous. we missed the first session of testing. Was still able to give the car a shake down and a test in the next two sessions, making a few set up adjustments ready for qualifying on the Sunday. The car being a new build has to be sent to the championships rolling Road in Milton Keynes for Power testing, coming back at 270 bhp determines what class I would be running in. The car itself is ; Mk 5 left hand drive Golf( my preference to be Left hand drive, helps with seeing apexes on tracks, as most tracks are clock wise) 270 Bhp Full race limited slip diff 6 point full roll cage Hancock slick tyres AST 3 way adjustable shocks Qualifying on Sunday went really well as I qualified on pole six tenths quicker than the next driver, in doing so setting a new lap record, I was feeling really confident with the new car and after only a few laps I knew I was able to put a quick lap in but I did not expect it to be that quick. Race one was a drivers dream race, with a lights to flag victory. It was not a very exciting race to be in, there was an incident with some other cars that brought out the safety car, so I had to make sure I got a good rolling start once the safety car went into the pits, which I did and then drove away from the second place man in the sirocco to take the win. Race two was a different kettle of fish. starting 6th due to the reverse grid system that the championship runs and the extra 40kg of success ballast and not running on new tyres as I has used my allocation for qualifying and race one I knew I had it all to do. So after a not to bad start, I had made my way up to fourth and was feeling pretty confident that we would be on the podium for the finish, until another competitor decided to change all of that by crashing into me and damaging the front suspension. All I could do was to drive around for the rest of the race like miss daisy and collect any points I could. My next meeting is at Snetterton in Norfolk 28th May (British GT) Brands Hatch 6th August (British GT) Brands Hatch 20th August (Duetsche fest) Thruxton 3rd September Donington Park 24th September (British GT) If anyone is at any of the meetings please pop over and say Hi. please have a look at the video from Rockingham last weekhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lk9BRiG7Tl0 as well as a video from Brands hatch two years ago (aged 17) when I was slightly annoyed due a clutch issue starting from Pole position ( enjoy the ride) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khHh34fq6LU&sns=em
  18. About to collect my Golf R

    Hello all, I've been a VAG enthusiast based just outside Edinburgh since the mid-90's, owning a MK1 GTI, 2 MK2 GTI's, and a few others.. Currently cut about in my 2013 T5 long wheelbase Transporter but just bought a low milage 2015 Golf R that I'm looking forward to turning into a cool wee cruising machine. Look forward to asking questions and contributing on the forums.
  19. To all those who are concerned about getting their Rs stolen, take heart. It could be worse: Britain's Top 10 Most Stolen Cars
  20. Hello!! Been on here researching after ordering & now finally getting round to making a thread on the car so here goes.... My previous car was the mk7 Golf GTI with performance pack which was a brilliant car & done everything I needed including a european road trip to Spa & the Ring but.. ever since it was announced the thought of getting the R was always there. Went a few times to see how much it would be to change but the numbers weren't right, now however (maybe thanks to diesel gate) VW were offering the deals & it all worked out for me Thought I'd start with the stages & spec before the pics So since having the GTI I thought I'd try to make the R different so went for 3dr White DSG (my first autobox) Pano Roof Rear Cam 19" Alloys Car Net App Winter Pack (this was before it became free in Wk22 cars onwards) Build Process - 11th May 16 - Ordered the car - 16th May 16 - Order with the factory - 27th May 16 - Stage 3 build week confirmed (wk 25 so got the revised spec) - 20th June 16 - Car started to get built - 22nd June 16 - Stage 5a & car had left the factory - 24th June 16 - Stage 5b at the port waiting - 1st July 16 - Stage 5c shipping - 7th July - Stage 6 arrived in the UK - 8th July Stage 7 at the dealership - Picked the car up 18th July 16 (would have been sooner but had a wks holiday in-between) Couldn't believe how quick it arrived, especially after the 6months it took for my GTI to arrive last time. And now to some pics Delivered/Collected First wash Photoshoot with GTI before it went Also had it booked in for a two day new car detail (will put more details/pics up in the detail section) http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee109/croz_13/20160722_171007.jpg So after driving the R for two weeks - loving the DSG box, still getting used to it but changes are seamless & rush hour traffic is so easy with the ACC. Pano roof again first time having a sun roof & luckily the weather has been kind so been getting good use of it & loving it, also brightens up the cabin. Of course can't help but love the 4wd & power gains - awesome Mods wise I've fitted LED's for the reverse lights & audi style dynamic rear indicators Stuff for the future prob going to get new bulbs for the headlight corner, glovebox & boot lights. Maybe fit a dash cam & the metal footrest to match the pedals. Hope you enjoyed the read haha & I'll update this thread with pics etc throughout my time with the R
  21. Considering Golf R

    Hi, Just got court approval for the TDI settlement and am considering a GTI or R. Anyone else went through the same decision tree; what sway you one way or the other. Did you look at other similar cars? Finally, any regrets. Thanks for any inputs.
  22. Main questions: - where does the 10 hp power increase comes from? Bigger turbo , other hardware changes or they just fiddled with the ECU software? - the DSG 7 speed transmission is the same they employed in the RS3? - is tuning potential changed in any way or stage1, 2 and so on will make no virtual difference between prefacelift and postfacelift?
  23. Hi All, This is my first post so be nice, please. I'm looking for Objective advice on a build for my soon to be Golf R. Please pay special attention to that word as I don't want this to turning into a pissing contest. The build I want is effectively a time attack car for the road; I'm willing to sacrifice a bit in fuel economy and ride comfort, for a more faster and sharper car. Road legal and track ready. I want this thread to Objectively to answer the following The strengths and weaknesses of the R Which parts can be replaced/upgraded to fix these issues? Is what I want possible? Ideal build, with money as no objective and my criteria above As I said objectiveness is key, I don't want any crap. If you make a point, prove it. If multiple people comment, I'll get an idea of where the car actually is in the real world and I can base my build off that. Thanks in advance
  24. Hi guys! Thought I'd share my build too and contribute to this community. So, after a '08 Golf 5 GTI Edition 30 and a '14 Golf 7 GTD (both DSG), you can tell I'm a Golf fan. My dream was petrol engine + 4motion + DSG so the only good option for me was a brand new 7R Ordered on 04.2016, received on 06.2016 with these specs: 5 door Oryx White DCC Pretoria with 235/35 R19 Michelin PSS Bi-Xenon with Dynamic Light Assist & Lane Assist Sunroof ACC Discover Pro + Dynaudio + Car-Net + Rear view camera + Park Pilot + Premium bluetooth Blind Spot Plus Keyless access Heated windshield and seats ​After less than 2 months I ordered a DTE Powerbox, results were 353PS/514Nm. Got to some track-days, burned the OEM brakes and so the mods started ... Current mod list (11.01.2017): OEM TTRS 370mm 4-pot Brembo VWR 3" Cup Edition Valved Non-Resonated Full Turbo Back Exhaust with 200cell cat VWR R600 intake VWR High-Flow Turbo Inlet Pipe VWR High-Flow Turbo 90 VWR Turbo Muffler Delete VWR Oil Catch Tank & Oil Management Kit VWR Intercooler VWR Springs VWR Front End Links H&R Sway Bars Forge Silicone Boost Hose Kit Oettinger Roof Spoiler OEM Door Warning Lights OEM Rear Footwell Lights For winter I'm currently running OEM Salvador 18" with 225/40 R18 Nokian WR D4. Needed 10mm spacers to clear the calipers (will move to 15mm as these have onle 1-2mm clearance) Planned upgrades for 2017: MRC ECU + DSG tunes RS7 plugs Rear rotors Neuspeed RSE10 18x8.5 with some semi-slicks for the track KW V3 coilovers ... and more It's a daily car and I'm trying to keep it that way so I'll have to be careful with the next steps. A couple of pictures from day #1, track days ...

    Hi guys and girls, I purchased a mk7 manual Golf R with all the options and fruit available here in Oz four months ago. I absolutely love the car. I did have a 2008 R32 from new, and although I miss the raspy 6, the little turbo does hit hard. The only after market item thus far is a gtechniq paint protection. Anyway I look forward to stay involved and perhaps meeting up with some local fellow enthusiasts here in WA. Il always give a fellow VW R owner a nod.
