Ought to work for R GmbH

Ought to work for R GmbH (7/9)



  1. Hey everyone!! Just thought I would pop by and check in on whether VW have got their ar*e* in gear and sorted the problems out that plagued the car when I had mine......with a thought that if they had I may come back into an R, but it sadly looks like it Is a case of clearly not. 😠 I am now 9 months into ownership of i20N and it is still a fantastic car in almost every way. There are a couple of things I miss from the R but I can live without them. Ill not derail the thread with my Alien car speak and risk being banished by @Booth11😅 PS this forum is much much better than *cough, cough the N forum cough cough*🙃
  2. I regularly had no sound in mine, which was usually solved by selecting radio and then going back to carplay, however, from october onwards it was at least once a week where there was no sound and nothing worked to give it a poke. Only turning the car off and leaving it for half hour solved it. When I sold mine I was at a point where I wandered what was going to happen on that journey, not what i wanted from a £40k car to be honest and looking back now, I am glad I sold mine, and I honestly think the 7.5R i had beforehand was better because it was faultless. So far so good with the i20N, nothing to report with regards to any gremlins. Glad I switched.
  3. yeh thats the sound. not that it matters now for me as i don't have the car anymore. fingers crossed yours is fixed!
  4. I had this constantly after the 1890 update, to the point where it was beeping every 5 or so seconds for an entire 50 minute journey... drove me mad but had no choice but continue driving. Even tried stopping giving the car a few mins to sort itself out and re-start but to no avail. Prior to then I maybe had it happen 2 or 3 times in 9 months of ownership.
  5. Thanks for the tag Andy, Yes, I would 100% recommend the i20N, it is actually not that far of in terms of interior space, I can still fit my bikes in the back with the seats down just as easily as the golf and if you opt for the standard speaker system (which is actually ok) you get an even larger boot but with space to house a space saver wheel and tool kit. I would say the 2022 i20N is the same size as the 2012-2018(?) i30. The infotainment system is 100% better than the Golf, it comes with the equivalent driving mode as the golfs 'special' mode too as standard that has been setup for ragging around the ring (ooo er mrs). Interior is nice, seats are comfy and the layout is well thought of. Performance is exceptional, I haven't missed the R at all since owning the i20N, it is a little harder ride than the golf but nothing than requires a visit to the dentist each week. at £25k you cannot go wrong. Oh and it easily returns 45mpg. Once I get chance I will post up a full review with photos and you tube links etc in this section of the forum. I haven't enjoyed a car from a holistic point of view as much as this one probably since the 7.5 R 5 years ago.
  6. I am not missing all these problems that is for sure. I think someone has bought my R (GD21 HHJ) from Startin Group Susuki in Worcester, if its anyone on here give me a shout if you want to know any history of the car.

    Love it Andy, at the moment I honestly think I am preferring it to the R, simply based on the fact that it hasn't missed a beat with regards infotainment gremlins, and that it is so much fun to drive. I have to be conscious of its 'direct' steering and how it dives into the corners so sharply as a couple of times I have got a bit close to the curbs on roundabouts. Absolutely gutted on Tuesday though, I clipped a high curb parking up at the swimming pool for the kids lessons, the kids were being super annoying counting red cars and getting silly with it, I parked in a different space to my usual one and the bay wasn't marked out square with the curbs, SCRAPE... damn it. So have a couple of chips on one alloy now, have emailed our local alloy repairer to see what they suggest, oh and picked up a stone chip on the bumper too on the way home from collecting from Staffs Car Care. Doh. Touch up stick on its way now. The infotainment is brill, intuitive to use and reacts immediately with zero lag. Cannot fault it at the mo to be honest mate and for best part of £18k less than a similarly spec'd options R, its a no-brainer for me really. As much as I love the R, its not £18k better than the i20n that is for sure. I am doing a few mods before I publish my write up on it so I can hit everything in one post. Black Badge kit - en route from Germany, front is a 10 second job, rear is a bitch as you have to remove the entire rear clusters/rear cam housings and will be a good couple of hours work, loads of swearing and broken clips. Dashcam install - Currently wired to the USB whilst I find time to hardwire in and think of a solution with regards the rear cam (no trim to remove to hide/feed cables between rear window and C-pillars). Aluminium Foot rest - Fitted LED rear indicators - Fitted Ceramic Coating - Body and Wheels Interior Fabrics - Sealed Once I have filmed all the mods I will write a post in the 'other cars' section on here so you can follow her on there haha
  10. Not me mate but I do vaguely remember someone mentioning that one back in the early days.

    No probs mate. Glad it was of some use for you. Good luck with your sale. Prices are so volatile at the moment and sometimes its worth accepting WBAC lower end of the market valuation just for the ease of it. I was almost at that point!

  13. That is mental. I remember we posted our orders on here within a couple of weeks of each other. I cannot believe that VW haven't got around to building cars from April last year. I really hope it turns up soon Andy.

    Quick post as it was New Car day today and collecting the R's replacement. A Hyundai i20N in Dragon Red Pearl. All I can say from the initial drive home (111 miles) is WOW, what a car, it is an absolute hoot to drive. First impressions very good. Very different to the R as expected but superb all the same. I collected it with the transport wrap still fitted so before anyone asks, no It hasn't got a white roof! haha Pirelli P-Zeros fitted as standard Once I have it detailed and clean I will post some better photos. There you go mate, just for you @dopper99
  15. As I generally don't drive with a lead foot anymore, I am swaying towards it making almost zero difference. haha There doesn't seem to be many gremlins mentioned on an i20n forum, main things seem to be random rattles (what car doesn't have those from time to time) and people don't like the fake exhaust sound thing, but you can disconnect that either behind the dash or if you want too, there is a connector at the back box end that opens/closes the valves that can be disconnected and that also relays fake sound to the cabin apparently. So all you do is have valves open and disconnect and bag the connectors up. Valves permanently open and no fake sound in the cockpit. A few have mentioned scratches on panels from the Hyundai monkeys that have moved their cars around prior to collection. Mine will go through a full decontamination and paint correction process next week anyway so any light marks will be rectified then. Anything deeper then it will be negotiated off the price or billed to Hyundai for repair. I will throw some photos up once I get chance
