    Wheels

    I drove an R with Prets and no DCC and thought the ride was good, firm but not crashy. Just like a hot hatch should be.

    MPG (yes this again, but slightly different)

    Oh fair enough then, that's definitely run in 😄

    What's the mileage on your R at the moment? Reason I ask is (if it were me) I would wait until the break in period is over before taking it to VW. All they will do is plug it in, confirm no codes are showing and one of the lads will take it out and rag the hell out of it for 5 mins to confirm it works as it should. If the car isnt run in yet, I personally wouldn't want that happening. Just my opinion of course.

    Not completely relevant as I haven't taken delivery if my R yet, but my current 7.5 GTI PP MPG improved significantly once I hit around 1k miles. Also the cold weather has a huge affect on the MPG. I'm seeing around 10 less MPG in the past few weeks on the same commute to work same traffic conditions etc.

    Mk7 Golf R Order thread - part 2

    Thanks for the info, I couldn't find a definitive answer whether or not the R had passed WLTP testing, other dealerships I went to said different things. Is there a website/ post somewhere to keep track of the progress of the testing?

    The Quick Question Topic - Part 2

    Ah ok thanks. I wonder why it's under dealer fitted options on the form, might query it

    The Quick Question Topic - Part 2

    Is Keyless/ button to start standard since September 18 builds? I've got the option but on the order form it appears under dealer fitted options not under factory fitted options like the prets and climate windscreen etc

    Anyone driven a R since WLTP changes?

    Secured my WLTP R this afternoon. It was built in November. Sales manager was on the phone for ages with VW with me getting an answer. WLTP approved and delivery in Feb

    Mk7 Golf R Order thread - part 2

    I've joined the club 😀 After a 7.5 GTI PP I've taken the plunge into R ownership. I managed to secure my perfect spec from dealer stock - Pure White, 5 door, DSG with black prets, keyless and climate windscreen. The only thing its missing is black mirror caps which are easy to get off ebay. 14.4% off list with carwow and good trade in for the GTI. The R was built on 19th November. Whilist at the dealership the sales manager called VW to discuss delivery expectations. Took about 45 mins but the answer from vw was the R has passed WLTP and will be in the UK beginning to mid Feb 19. All set for a 19 plate 1st March Over the moon and can't wait!

    Been googling and on YouTube, my suspicions look to be confirmed. The MY19 Cupras with the GPF fitted sound a lot quieter and have lost the DSG farts, just like my GTI PP. Considering the Cupras have the same engine as the Golf R it doesn't look good ....

    The thing that makes me concerned is I had a 7.5 GTI which sounded awesome. Popped and the DSG farts were great. Then traded for a 7.5 GTI PP which is pretty silent. Now the standard GTI I had got axed because it wouldn't pass WLTP but the GTI PP was fine and didn't need changing. I'm sure if the could have VW would have put the standard GTI through WLTP as they are a lot more popular then the PP version.

    Same, it almost felt like the rear windows were open all the time with the DSG farts. Crazy.
