  1. Thanks Becs, will stick around as always good general chat to read too. Yes you hit the nail on the head, just took the enjoyment out of ownership sadly, its been a bit of a case of one problem after another but these things happen and I am sure not limited to one manufacturer any more than another! I am sure I will still see you about and will give you a toot if I go past your place as you are giving the full treatment to yours (I actually looked at one of the new houses going up along by you so nearly ended up as your near neighbour [emoji23] but decided to stay put in the end! All the best and thanks for the help on the coding last year. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. So having owned my 2018 R for about 10 months it will be going to a new home this weekend I can’t say I have ever been really happy with it, lots of issues when buying from the dealer with paintwork damage which eventually got sorted but left a sour taste. The paint on the car is so thin it’s ridiculous as even though I have only covered around 6k there are paint chips all over the front. A new windscreen from one tiny chip that cracked from top to bottom (and confirmed by auto windscreens that they almost never repair golf screens now as they all seem to do this). More squeaks coming from the sunroof and doors than a mouse seeing a big bit of cheese. ‘Clunking’ from the steering that local dealer can’t find/fix and so the list goes on I will be sad to see it go and miss the ‘fun factor’ of it but overall I can’t say I would buy another again and I am not anti-VW as have had an r before also wife has a Tiguan which although not quite as bad does seem to be having its fair share of quality issues (coolant level issues, sensors failing, warning lights for no reason) but she loves the car so will stick with it for a while I know other manufacturers are not great either but I don’t recall anywhere near this level of poor quality on the mk6 golf R or the 2014 Tiguan she had before It’s been a pleasure though and those of you with a good one keep enjoying yours!

  3. Or do what I am doing this week and sell it!!!! The creaks and rattles, bits of bodywork coming loose and general lack of QC on my R is shocking and as much as I love all the good stuff so couldn’t live with mine long term Good luck with getting your squeaks sorted as after 10 months mine are just as bad/annoying Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I’ve booked it in for next week so hoping they won’t just say ‘sorry we can’t hear it’ and find whatever is causing it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. No it’s a district clunk noise at start/very low speed turning only never heard it at more than a few mph Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. On an 8 month old car though? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Any ideas before I book it in to be looked at? Seems to come from front right side although I know it could transfer from anywhere, only does it at start/pull away, no specific driving just when first moved after stopping and not just cold but during journeys too?

  8. Wanted to update this thread after a visit to the local dealer and mentioned the sunroof to be surprised that VW have issued a TPI??? and that lubrication alone is not curing the problem on a number of cars! Apparently they have replaced 2 entire frame/sunroofs in the last month and this is specific to Golf and Passats They have advised to wait till it starts squeaking again (not doing it currently as it’s definitely the heat/temperature that causes it) but just in case anyone else thinks they might have the same issue Seems like someone in the US had something similar done earlier in the year according to this post https://hinessight.blogs.com/hinessight/2018/03/my-2017-vw-gti-had-a-creaky-sunroof-heres-the-tale-of-a-5-week-repair.html Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. Another race which proves F1 is a joke and why I don’t waste any time watching anymore! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. Totally stopped watching now, used to be an avid viewer and even went to some F1 races but hate the new tracks, team orders, lack of opportunity for ‘lower teams’ and the tantrums from certain drivers (LH particularly grates) and frankly unless the weather plays up every race is pretty much predictable and boring Rather watch moto gp or even some of the lower level formulas which at least provide some fun/excitement Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
