    Eibach pro kit

    Still got a set of Prets to go on so interested in how these run with 19" wheels and no DCC
  2. Where did you get the footrest from.
  3. Assume the lip spoiler and brakes fit the 7R as well

    Twin Exhaust Pipes

    There was another thread on this and Nige from BCS mentioned if there was interest enough he could probably look into it

    Article :: Golf Mk8: June 2019 production confirmed

    I agree its more than the mk6 R jump to Mk7 R and its not all about BHP as you rightly say but I bet once the car lands and its not up with the latest figures it will be off to a bad start rightly or wrongly. A better exhaust note is a must

    Why does GTI get all the glory?

    I personally thought they should have retained the Rallye title rather than switch to R, probably didnt help that we had no mk3 4 wheel drive fast Golf. The Gti has the heritage but again I dont think VW push the heritage off their brands enough, Wolfsberg edition models G60 edition 1 etc appeal more to me than Clubsport or TCR IMO. Now Iam not hating on the GTI, I get the clubsportt s, limited run but some of the models are a waste of effort or lack of any vision, when you see what the modding world can do with the R for not a lot of cash it makes you wonder why tge R400 was not rollled out as a limited production run like the S rather than this TC.R model. I truely believe that these Rs will be the last of what you could call driving cars...electric and tech will take over maybe not fuly for the mk8 but its coming Glad I am keeping mine.

    350HP so not even touching its rivals figures for this gen, bit of a disappointment but hey ho if your new to the R then its winner.

    Sad day indeed

    got to think of the family and future first but you can still have a good car, plenty of good R32s kicking about still.

    Golf GTI TCR

    completely pointless car this I personally think, how many variations of a Mk7 GTI do you really need.....only one car they should be pumping out and that's an R special

    400bhp confirmed for Mk8 R

    400bhp is fairly easy to achieve for a lot less than a new mk8, would rather they went for a driving experience over tech and batteries but I doubt thee will, ohhhh and they really need to make it sound good. I also thought this jumped out ..”there’s a space where customers are willing to pay a significant amount of money”. that to me sounds more like fleecing our customers than delivering what they actually want, hope I am wrong mind

    Sat nav/infotainment upgrade

    I think there is a alpine head unit specific for the golf mk7 that retains all functionality. probably gives you more options as well for music playback and connecting an amp. https://www.alpine.co.uk/p/Products/SingleView/X901D-G7

    re waxing

    I use this over a wax and it gives great results, defiantly less is more when applying it as the coverage is excellent
