  1. This advert is COMPLETED!

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    For sale is my 2014 golf R 5 door in rare limestone grey Colour. I’m the 2nd owner from new. I’ve owned the car for just over two years. 10 months Mot with no advisories. 2 keys From factory it has • 19” Pretoria wheels with nearly new mitchlin P4S tyres •Full heated leather •Panoramic roof • Discover navigation • Reverse Camera • DCC suspension • Adaptive Cruise control It has full service history from main dealer up to 24k then only serviced by VRS Northampton in my ownership, oil changed using millers nanotech every 6-7k and haldex and DSG have been done twice in my ownership. Mileage is now just under 51k but will rise as it’s my daily driver. Also just had rear door speakers resealed to keep water out. There are a few stone chips to the front and a small chip in windscreen that happened a couple of days ago which I plan to get repaired before sale. now the fun stuff it’s been tuned to APR stage 2 which I think really is the sweet spot for a daily driver. Engine, exhaust and mapping. • APR stage 2 hi torque and TCU map •VWR R600 intake •TT inlet pipe • Scorpion Sport-cat down pipe (less than 6 months old) • Wagner intercooler (less than 6 months old) • BCS resonator delete pipe. • Forge dog bone poly bush mount suspension and brakes: • VWR lowering springs • Clubsport S discs • Ferrodo DS2500 pads • Front and rear wheel spacers with longer wheel bolts Body: • Rieger front splitter • Carbon mirror caps The car hasn’t wanted for anything in my ownership as you can see it’s had a fair few quid spent on it over the last two years. It really is a well sorted car with all the right mods done to it to make it the car it should of been out of the factory. All the modifications and servicing has been carried out by VRS in Northampton who are well known in the R community. I have receipts for all the work carried out and a dyno sheet from VRS where the car made 407bhp. Always driven with mechanical sympathy, always warmed and cooled properly. I really don’t want to split the parts down as I think the car is perfect how it is and is ready for a hybrid turbo if you wanted more power. Any questions please ask. No test pilots. thanks.

  2. Your in oz but speak to VRS they have a small hybrid that they use from turbo technics which is good for 500bhp with fuel pumps and quick spool.
  3. What’s the difference between the systems? And can you do the WRC version as a cat back if you already have a downpipe?
  4. Double check the specs on those, the ET looks way lower than 38
  5. They could well be 8mm on the front to be honest. I should check really!!
  6. Yes VWR springs no idea of the part number though. Yes 11mm rear 5mm front I think.
  7. Nah all good. I’m running spacers front and rear too.
  8. I’m running VWR springs on mine with dcc the ride is firm but five for me. They drop relatively low. If you don’t want to go as low eibach may be a better bet as they don’t drop as low as VWR.
  9. I can’t find the post about the above car, As there is a bit more to the story than it just blew up. Apparently had 100’s of launches, lots of flat out runs in “Mexico” and generally driven to within an inch of its life for those 28k miles. Someone correct me if I’m wrong please.
  10. Have you had the car in anywhere to see what part of the engine failed?
  11. More lag too. Not even sure TT make the V4 anymore either, plus the cost difference. Where are you based?
  12. I’m APR stage 1 and mine sits Around the 98-99 mark, using millers nanotech oil.
  13. Think Guy was running that TTV6 that was a good while ago though. Is there an off the shelf fuelling solution for 600+ BHP now?
  14. The new RS3 engine and DQ500 conversion would be my choice no idea of the cost but it’s got to around the 10k mark.
  15. This would be my preferred choice also however not the cheapest!!!
