    Really impressed with my 2 month old motor after getting it ceramic coated at Detail NI in Newtownards (Northern Ireland). Ryan used Drexler ceramic, looks very wet and slick! The wheels especially will hopefully be well protected.

    Get a cheap car and gain experience in that. Then when you have 2-3 years of driving experience (claim free), then consider an R. 17 year old + 3 months experience + 300bhp will not end well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Leaving the Fold after 6 years.

    The day has come when I've agreed to let my R go on to pastures new. It's been a brilliant car to own and drive. It hasn't had a fault from new and always been reliable. It's coming up to 30k miles and still hasn't lost it's 'new' feeling. I promised myself a Porsche for my 60th birthday in October and my 25 years anniversary of being off the booze! I've gone for a 2014 Cayman S, in silver like the R. I'm glad to be back to a six pot but I don't think the Cayman will feel as fast as the R - it has more BHP but loads less torque. It has 20in Carrera wheels, Bose stereo, PDK, Sport Chrono, 10k miles on the clock and sports exhaust. I should have it on the drive next week. Farewell R owners -you've been a good bunch to hang around with

    White silver 7.5 R

    Well after selling my clubsport s due to practicality, I was lucky enough to stubble across this beauty, and I must say I love it. Just deciding on what mods to start with to give the car more power, but over all I'm chuffed

    I know white isn't the most rewarding colour to maintain, however, I have to say imho it's a colour that really suits the Golf...... Freshly washed and polished, ready to catch another one million bugs.......

    Heatwave Madness!

    Hopefully I did my R justice. Trying to find a bit of colour but this weather is cooking every bit of green Space we have to Brown at the moment! Bojam

    My DSG Lapiz R one year on.

    The last round of mods has been Maxton side skirts/ rear spats and roof spoiler and some Racingline side decals. Not sure what will be next I think either the Racingline shocks or coilovers and a proper remap. Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk

    So everyone that drives a S3 is a @@@@......and when they sell the S3 and buy something else they stop being a @@@@? Really?? I think people become @@@@s over time and once a @@@@ always a @@@@. Nowt to do with the car they drive. YAWN.................

    Results of a 3 stage machine detail

    Hi all, I had my r detailed professionally when it was brand new 18 months ago with cquartz UK edition. Needless to say it wasn’t great and lasted maybe 6 months before the effects started to wear off. I’ve also had maxprotect applied on a previous car and wasn’t too impressed with that either. This time I opted for the whole hog. Gtechniq Crystal serum ultra + exo 4 top coat. The exo 4 is supposedly good for 2 years and the serum 9 years....let’s see if it stands the test of time! The only things I should need to worry about is a good maintenance wash technique which I already believe to have! Find photos attached!

    It’s getting worse

    Doesn’t mater how ‘hard’ or well trained someone is, they need to be prepared and awake to be able to do anything. Chuck Norris on the other hand, would visit the thieves at their homes the night before they tried to steal his R. Because he’s Chuck Norris....

    It’s getting worse

    I don't understand people who take keys upstairs or hide them somewhere. If someone wants to break in for my car i'd rather them find the keys as quick as possible and get out. No car is worth risking your own life or anyones life. Metal can be replaced.

    No, no you don't. Everyone NEEDS everything nowadays. Quite simply you don't.

    No one else has mentioned, so I will bite. at 17 and 3 months driving ability on public roads, insuring something like a Golf R is just plain stupid. by simply driving around in something basic for 12 months you can save a fair bit of cash and actually learn to drive (as at the moment you can't). if you have an accident at 17 while driving a Golf R you stand the real chance of buggering up insurance premiums so much you may not get insurance from most companies.. also it is incredibly easy to go over the limit in an R (when compared to 110bhp types), it also increases your chances of getting points. also get used to being stopped by the police. personally I simply would not bother it's just a complete waste of cash covering insurance. however, it's a free world (apparently).

    What do you dislike about your R?

    For me its the flat area of the bumper at the tailgate. Water just pools there and leaves dirty marks, doesn't help my my R is white.
