    Mk7 Golf R Order thread - part 2

    Im in the same boat mate. My PCP is up in march and thinking about just keeping hold of mine for a couple more years at least. It's still a superb car!

    How reliable is the G7R?

    Thanks for clearing that up, I've yet to experience this, probably because I drive most of the time in race mode and like using the paddles, or eco if I'm on a long drive somewhere.

    DSG delay of death?
  5. Mine seems ok changing up at higher revs too, just apparent when the engine is cold and at about 2.5k rpm ,
  6. Cheers for that, will have a dig and see what others people's issues were
  7. Anyone else find that when their dsg, when changing from 1st to 2nd in sport manual mode, that it's quite jerky? Mine is starting to feel like that and especially when cold. Something to be worried about? Sorry if this been covered, couldn't be arsed looking through the thread. Cheers

    Will I miss my manual?

    Tbh I could have done it a lot sooner, was just enjoying the whole experience and learning everything about the car first. You could maybe wait a little bit longer mine felt like it was loosening up around a thousand miles. Can see now why everyone keeps saying not much can beat it off the mark

    Roughly how much extra power does your tuning box give you ?

    Horrible rattle on driverside dash

    Sun visor ? I doubt it's that but will check it out mate cheers
  15. Evening, The dashboard on my drivers side is rattling like f**k and its doing my nut in and is getting worse and worse. This is the first car I've experienced this with and just wondering if this is a common problem in the mk7 R and how difficult a fix is it!?! Cheers
