    Golf GTi TCR vs Golf R

    If the TCR is a very limited run id get that, looks impressive. R wins especially as an everyday car.

    I thought that would be a bit of a coup! i use the Topaz fuel but I’m not convinced on the boosters. With the rise of Hybrids and E cars I suspect we will never see 98 on our forecourts. Shame.

    Need to watch out for metallic in the boosters, first sign is the plugs to start playing up. I’ve not even seen a 98 Ron pump in the country since they changed the tax rules so I’ll be visiting that Applegreen next week!

    Is that the right price for the 98? i know south Dublin is expensive but that’s pushing it!

    Golf R DRL's

    The 7.5's are much better IMHO, definition and looks, and add the sweeping LED rears your bang up to date!

    Rear brake disc scoring

    Got 30K on my mk7, but wont get factory rears again. Would anyone have the part numbers for Bembo discs and pads for the rears? Many thanks

    where do I start !

    Gap insurance will not deter them entering your house either, and I would suggest the blow torch is a bit dramatic and rare. (well I hope so) Most are burglaries are opportunists, often people always say 'I can't believe how easily they got in and out'. I would always start with securing your home, Monitored Alarm, CCTV, Sensors, locks and fixtures at least at Secured by design standard or above. Nothing will stop them but most are opportunist so deterring them is the best you can do. Autowatch does pose a threat of them coming back in but with an alarm ringing, lights on, CCTV pointing at them would they? maybe? If you are in an area with high levels of armed burglaries perhaps its not a good idea to fit it.

    Scumbags, I feel for you, at least no one was hurt and you got the car back. Maybe worth asking the garage to see if they can look at the rev limiter to see if it was exceeded. Autowatch Ghost on mine so even with the keys they won't get anywhere.

    Golf R & Golf GTD 7.5 Daily

    Ive had both, and the GTD is a very nice car, but if you measure the width of the smile from driving the R it wins every time.
