My name is Sam and I am a proud owner of a one of a kind Black Golf 7R, DSG with 5 Doors. I have named her Raven (I have my reasons )
Bit of background: I upgraded from a Mk5 GTI that was running a Stage 2+ Tune from R-Tech. My previous build thread (picture heavy) can be found here: http://www.mk5golfgti.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,92146.0.html
I test drove a 7R at the start of 2016 and had my heart set on one ever since. However, I was too picky and wanted the exact specification I had in mind. Luckily I soon found the previous owner and have closely followed the development of this car from stock. I finally took ownership at the end of 2016. And needless to say...what a machine...
To put things into perspective
2011 GT-R R35: 523HP, 451LBFT, 1740KG
2014 Raven: 550HP, 556LBFT, 1401KG
In her base form, she's a top spec Japanese Import 7R (2014 model). Factory spec includes:
- 5 Door DSG in DBP
- DCC (now swapped with VWR Coilies)
- Discover Nav Pro with Reverse Camera
- Keyless Entry
- Black Leather interior with fully electric driver's seat adjustment
- Lane Assist, Light Assist and all the other trimmings such as ACC etc
I do not have the mods list compiled - its' a big list.. so for now, enjoy some pictures. Feel free to follow my Insta @sam.7r for recent updates.
LOADS of changes have been made since I've taken ownership and there are plenty more in the pipeline. So stay tuned..
Most of the changes I've made are related to suspension, chassis, wheels, audio and some performance. There's few cosmetic bits too.
I will continue to update this thread as and when I can..

Thanks for looking!
Well, it's officially started. I have my 7.5R booked in with VAG Tech for Stage 1 Revo remap, Racing Line springs and H&R antiroll bars to stiffen it up.
Just a little bit of a tweak for now... I'll give it a few months before stage 2 starts. How much work did you guys do for Stage 2? I'm guessing it'll take an upgraded air intake, exhaust manifold and brakes along with the remap. Any suggestions on what else should be upgraded? Either out of necessity or a "it was simply better with..."
