  1. I'm looking to get a second set of wheels to use with winter tyres fitted and have looked at used Cadiz, BBS SX which.are sold as winter wheels but want something a little better looking. Have sort of narrowed it down to Rotiform WGR in matte black or Revo RV018 in gloss black. Rotiform are 18 x 8.5, Revo are 18 x 8, looking to use them with Continental TS850P'S in 225 x 40 x 18, will 225 be OK with the 8.5 Rotiform and any opinions of the the quality / strength of the 2 options? I know the Revo will go on with standard bolts and no spacers but don't know if it's the same for the Rotiform? Will be going on my 7.5 R estate.. or Revo RV018 in gloss black

    MK7.5 Odd interior noise

    I've noticed an odd noise that at first I thought was just the air con coming on when set to auto but was sat in traffic today and had it happen quite a few times and realised that if I moved the steering wheel it stopped, anyone experience anything similar, I'm going to get a video because I'm sure when I visit the dealer it won't happen.

    Bargain R Estate

    Bought my second R estate a couple of months ago and got a great deal on a 2 month old car but have just seen this and can't believe how cheap it is, absolute bargain for someone, looks really good in white with black pack and got prets and sunroof. Under £27k and only 450 miles! I'm nothing to do with the garage just highlighting it in case anyone is looking.

    Indium Estate

    Had a Mk7 R estate then changed it for a new S4 Avant but ended up rejecting it after some issues so got another R and can honestly say I far prefer the R, much more fun to drive. Love the indium with black prets..

    Your previous cars?!

    Evo definitely really didn't like the Exige, it's just too track focused.

    R replaced by S

    No it wasn't as quick as the Golf, not much in it but the S4 was just not as exciting to to drive. The S4 looks much better and the seats/interior are amazing but as a whole the Golf is the more enjoyable car to drive!

    Picked the car up new and 3 days later the SOS function went wrong, random alarm going off and message on the display, could happen one every 5 minutes or every 10 seconds, after a trip for to the dealer it was booked in for replacement of the SOS module, only problem is it's behind the dash so it all had to come out. All went well for 3 weeks then the same again, back in to be diagnosed this time was booked back in to have the wiring to the module replaced so dash back out again. I was getting fed so raised a complaint with Audi, after a bit of a wait they offered a full refund of my deposit. In the end I had the S4 for 4 months but had really fallen out of love with it so while I had the option decided to come back to the less tech laden R, got a good deal on an a 3 month old, 2000 mile R estate and a few thousand back in my account. I should add that Audi customer services/VW finance and the dealers I dealt with were very helpful and apart from a slightly longer than anticipated time to look into the issues it was all fairly straight forward.

    Well that was short lived, had a couple of issues with the Audi so my rejection was completed this week and it's gone, good news is I'm picking up another Golf R Estate tomorrow!

    Yes, leather, heated and 3 way massage function as standard also! had it a couple of weeks now and love it, ordered it with a few extras including the carbon interior which replaces all the aluminum inlays and looks fantastic.
