  1. All very odd this thread. I've run my VWR springs since 2016 on a DCC equipped car including uprated 034 Motorsport ARB. No complaints whatsoever on track or road use. No clunks rattles or anything else. They are a step up in handling running flatter more stable under braking and I run a Tarox 8 pot kit and is very compliant and comfy on the road. I've run Eibach on previous cars and their Race Coils on my 16v. Great kit but there's nothing wrong with VWR springs on my car. I went springs only this time even though I track the car as I've done expensive KW Clubsportsto death and wanted to retain DCC functionality and didn't want to shell out £3k for that 9/10ths extreme handling characterIstics you get with Clubsports (Not V3's or B16 kits). Many have been very happy with VWR springs seems odd you have had issues.
  2. Not good. Its either I stay stock with my APR DP or go BCS Powervalve. .
  3. APR offer a low torque / output file which from memory is approx 350bhp on stage 1.
  4. APR exhaust got too loud after a while? Had one on my ED30......got louder and louder over time and too chavvy for my neighbours and age!
  5. As Dave says get it serviced using genuine oils and Haldex serviced with pump clean. You can also get VW or specialist to reset DSG adaptations.
  6. I'm 52 and the R is just right IMO. Not a chavvy vehicle but a mature great car for the family duties but great on a back road and sensible running costs. And if you fancy the odd bit of tuning they are a great platform with a great compliant chassis. It the sort of car you can turn up anywhere and people in the know will know exactly what it is 😃
  7. Great stuff everyone so far. I'm there for about 0900 but am booked for open pit lane in the afternoon. Getting MPS Cups fitted tomorrow get some miles on them on trip to Goodwood weekend before. We used to have VWROC flag/sails but I'm not sure where they are now. Anyone going on circuit?
  8. Thanks......yes sounds great on video Its the last job on my to do list. I think the APR exhaust maybe a bit too loud in the cabin on cruise. Wha I don't want is a loud system pulling up outside my house or on motorway cruising.

  11. Is this a noiser system than your normal cat back power valve system ? What are the differences in db inside and outside of the cars with respective exhausts? I assume it fits APR DP? Thanks
  12. Shame about 13th Ford RS day booked on 29th June.....always a great day with so,e fabulous old stuff. Good to see you'll take it on circuit. I only do a couple of events in mine and the rest in the valver as I want to preserve the R for road use. Great build btw. Thinking about the new BCS exhaust for mine to finnish it off.
  13. Lucky lucky ! Somebody re financed the deal ?? Thats a lot per month if you have got other bills......must be rolling in it! My friend is a GP and has a mortgage and 2 kids and loves his cars but he says how can these people afford it on Utube? He has a very healthy salary as well.
  14. Nice Will you be tracking her or just road use? Mind blowingly rapid in a Golf! Be good if you could make an appearance at Castle Combe on the 13th. Supposedly a lot of nice Porkers and other German machinery attending and a lot of traders.
