  1. I don't get the logic that motorway equals performance tyres required but when using A roads, "ditch finders" are fine when you're more likely to push the car for a bit of fun......
  2. Thanks Rebecca, I hadn't spotted the other thread.
  3. My son has just forwarded me the link below, looks like Mountune are tinkering with Vw's. Not read the full article but thought I'd still share for those interested. The anti theft option could be an additional benefit too. https://www.mountune52.com/collections/mk7-7-5-golf-r/products/golf-r-stage-1-power-upgrade
  4. As title guys, looking for a guide price for my R. Feb 2016, dsg, prets and keyless, 24k, FDSH. Looking for a ball park trade in and private sale values if theres any traders or recent sellers out there. Cheers Nik.

    Black circles have 10% off Michelins today. About £137 fitted once the discount code is applied.

    Is it just me or do dsg farts sound better inside the car than outside, more of a bang sound inside.
  7. Agreed, mines not been in the car for two years now.
  8. So presumably when a VW dealer sells an approved second hand R they do a launch count check and if the cars already done four they inform the prospective new owner that the launch control feature as described in the manual can't be used in order to maintain the warranty, I think not! Sales reps speak utter bollocks at times......
  9. you're too late buddy, already covered.
  10. Omg! Surely there is cctv but there again no doubt they were all hooded up, the twats! I wonder where the parts end up, creating R replicas or to replace crash damaged parts for those that don't want to claim on their insurance...who knows but it's shocking what goes on these days....
  11. Not currently in that situation but I was this time last year with the wife's car. It basically means your car has been off loaded from the boat and is awaiting a dealer transporter to collect it. Then it'll be pdi'd at the dealers prior to collection. Ours was at the port 5 or so days if I recall
  12. has your auto hold been turned off.
  13. So do the classic blue needles on the mk7 😁
  14. As a happy mk7 owner, old school dials are ok for now. If or when I decide to upgrade the R for a mk8 I only hope the digital dash is brought up to the standard of the Audi's, the Golf dash looks a bit bland and as already said, flat.
