  1. I'm tempted to purchase a supercar (well to me anyway) before we are all transported around in driverless, electric pods, so potentially something from Audi R8 V8, Porsche 911, Nissan GT-R or Aston Martin Vantage.
  2. The sentence must act as a deterrent to others - 14 years isn't sufficient.
  3. The culprits have pleaded guilty to four counts of causing death by dangerous driving: https://news.sky.com/story/teen-driver-pleads-guilty-to-killing-four-in-car-crash-11577027?fbclid=IwAR2l7rCIr4jn8-cjdD28yR76SmyfvUkCcD47BkjS-cX7MT7IRSdrzDsRVoo
  4. No, it seems a good fit through the steering wheel without the need for padding.
  5. Apologies, for some reason I thought it was a Disklok. It seems fairly sturdy though.
  6. I recently bought the Disklok Stoplok Pro Steering Lock to act as a visual deterrent. https://www.halfords.com/motoring/car-security/car-security/stoplock-pro-steering-lock
  7. Here's a picture of my VW sill protector:
  8. I use Sunset Service and Repairs in Derby: https://www.sunset-derby.co.uk/
  9. No I didn't measure the drop. The VW Racing info on this product states a drop of 20-30mm for the R, GTI and other sports models: https://vwpartsinternational.com/shop/suspension/vw-golf-mk7-gti-r-lowering-sport-spring-set-volkswagen-racing/
  10. Evo's article: http://www.evo.co.uk/volkswagen/golf/21458/volkswagen-golf-r-power-reduced-due-to-new-wltp-regs
  11. I've had the following fitted: Door Sill Protectors, footrest, VW Racing lowering springs, Oettinger rear spoiler, VW Racing Paddle Shifts:
  12. My local VW dealership quoted as follows: Morning the complete spoiler set and rear bumper is approx. £2800 then the fitting a painting is approx. £1300 you need to confirm details with our bodyshop to get a full estimate
  13. I've just purchased the Oettinger rear spoiler for my MK7 R from Barnetts of St Andrews (VW dealership based in Fife) from their eBay listing. I subsequently spoke with Blair Duffy the Parts Manager at this dealership about the other Oettinger body styling parts. Regarding the rear diffuser, he said that the Oettinger diffuser will not fit on the R's bumper. As such, to have the diffuser fitted, you need to have the MK7 GTI bumper as well. I'd suggest contacting Blair Duffy for advice and any offers this dealership may have on the Oettinger parts.
  14. Treated my R to a set of piano black paddles from VW Racing which arrived today 👍
