  1. Haha! No spare wheel in my car unfortunately (fortunately?) probably only have a stone to lose!! 7kg, that’s another wheel!! 😂
  2. Hi all, looking at buying these wheels.... i own an audi rs3 at the moment (don’t kill me!!) with 8.5j 19’s up front and the same at the rear but 8j. They both have 245/35/19 tyres on. Both are ET50. https://mbdesign.shop/en/mbdesign-kv1-dc-concave-wheel-shinyblack-polish-20inch-5x112-5b1 theyll be the 19 inch version though with ET45 as ET35 will be slightly too big. I could go 20 inch but then I’d need new tyres and it just gets so expensive, and there’s also the speedo issues etc. They weigh a featherly 7.25kg each, versus 14kg of
  3. what are the above like in terms of grip in the wet and dry?
  4. For 36k you could get a great spec RS3. Or for an extra 2-3k, a facelift RS3. Hold their value much more than an R, much much better engine, better interior. You’ll never tire of the sound either.
  5. As long as I have a pro only coating applied I don’t mind. I’d happily go with Kamikaze ENREI or Zipang. It shouldn’t really matter on the brand, as long as the value matches I guess!
  6. I asked my detailer about this, he said it was just marketing from gtechniq, it’s not true...he’s recently changed from gtechniq to kamikaze due to quality, apparently gtechniq have been bought out by Reep detailing now!
  7. Update on this...... ive been in touch and they’ve offered to use a detailer I haven’t heard before. It’s a 1 man band called BR exclusive on Facebook. There’s are good reviews, and upon a phone call to him, he seems to know what he’s doing. the only thing I’m concerned about is he want some the car for 2 days, with a free courtesy car, but my detailer normally has mine 4-5 days. I’m concerned that the amount of time may be inadequate to do a proper job. My detailer has a studio, whereas this guy wants to do the job at VW Leeds, is is going to be detailed outside? I’ve
  8. Went in for second service today as it was part of the service plan. Paid £800 to have the car detailed back in the end of July, and they’ve washed it and there’s marks all over it. I need to get it under my lights but I assume it will be absolutely covered in swirls. I’m hoping the gtechniq crystal serum ultra with EXO topping will have protected the car a little....to make matters worse the NO WASH was highlighted at the top of my service sheet! I showed them them the obvious marks and they’ve offered to machine polish them out which I frankly don’t want them doing, I’d rather ha
  9. Only really haven’t one dislike about the golf R and that’s the engine note. I have a 5 cylinder itch to scratch and the golf just sounds like a fart can in comparison which is to be expected. Wish there was the option to spec more alacantara trimmings in the golf like you can in the RS3 (the knee pads, red trim on the seatbelts etc) but apart from that I can’t really complain
  10. Unfortunately it’s still a 4pot, no matter what you do it isn’t going to sound like a 5 pot or more :( no point spending the money to polish a turd (engine noise wise anyway) :(
  11. I’m itching to get into an rs3. When I was looking at a new motor (coming from a SEAT Leon cupra 280 dsg, 14 reg back at the end of 2016), the prefacelift with a decent spec and low-ish mileage was around 38k. I couldn’t warrant spending that much and I wanted a new car so I could spec it how I wanted it. I also wanted 4wd. I went for the next best thing, a golf R. After I ordered my R I test drove a TTRS mk2. Fantastic car. Had the sports exhaust and sounded absolutely amazing. Dealer let me launch it and it was something else. The fact that they don’t even have Bluetooth music streaming put

  13. Purchased these today. £57 instead of racingline’s extortionate £192. Quality is spot on, they’re pretty much exactly the same!
