  1. Yes, prices are silly at the moment. I probably won't buy anything until around March now. Unless something comes up thats too good to turn down. I rather not collect a new car only for it to be covered in road grime and salt everyday over winter. Keeping a car for 3 years is long for me. Just goes to show how good a car the Golf R is. Come on you blues. Champions and top of the league 🤙🤙🤙
  2. I very nearly ordered a new M240i xdrive. The one which has just been announced with the 3ltr B58 engine. I used to own a 3ltr M135i which I bought new in 2014. I spoke to the dealer who I bought that car from and he offered me a 7% discount on the M240i. The thing is they don't hit UK showrooms until March so I can't test drive or see one in the metal until mine would arrive. The more I look at them, the more I dislike the look of it. So I've decided against it until I can see one in a showroom. The other car I'm interested in is the Mercedes A45s. The issue with those is used mod
  3. No mate. I've not properly advertised it yet. I've been offered £25kbfrom a couple of traders but I don't want to let it go for that. I've bought a cheap run around today. Something to bat about in, so I can advertise the Golf properly now. I could not have a car. Sent from my SM-G998B using Tapatalk
  4. Cheers mate. I agree it's not an ideal time to sell but I'm in no rush to sell it. Not everybody wants to buy a modified car either but I'd rather not strip it
  5. Thank you. Somebody is going to get a fantastic example which has been totally pampered.
  6. Thank you. I'll be sad to see it go but after almost 3 years it's time to move on.
  7. Time Left: 19 days and 9 hours

I've owned the car for just under 3 years and I purchased the car from VW Leeds. The car has been very highly maintained throughout my ownership by progressive parts and serviced using premium millers oil within the service schedules. The car is very frequently cleaned using the very best products and I'm well known on my street for being "that guy" who is always out cleaning his car. Service history 10,881 miles VW North Wales 21,397 miles VW North Wales 25,364 miles VW Leeds 34,901 miles Progressive Parts (Mark Brown) 42,172 miles LSG Performance (Shak) 48,864 miles Progressive Parts The last service was carried out less than a month ago. This was a full service using millers oil a including pollen filter replacement and full vehicle inspection. The car is always warmed up to 80 degrees oil temperature before taking it over 3k rpm and has only every been run on 99 octane fuel. I bought the car totally stock and I've since spent over £10k on premium, tasteful modifications.

Labour cost not included in the prices above. As you can see I've spent a lot of money on this car using the best products and I haven't cut any corners. I'm 40 years old and my commute is on a smart motorway with speed cameras all the way so the car has had a very easy life and not abused. Mark Brown of Progressive Parts knows me and the car very well I'm I'm sure he can confirm the car has been well and truly pampered during my ownership.

  9. After reading through some of the other build threads on her I thought I would put my own up. I'm bit late to the party as I've owned the car for since February last year. I bought the car completely standard from a VW main dealer. The car is a 2017 MK7.5 R 5dr hatch DSG with 19" Spielberg alloys, DCC and 90% tints Here's the dealer photos of from the advert
