  1. Just seen it. Kind of disappointed it’s only a back box and not the “system” vw are falsely advertising. Still very nice. But expensive compared to a full akra evo system with carbon pipes for a m4.

    Akrapovoc Titanium system Golf MK7.5 R

    VW and Akra told me these weren’t available. Kind of disappointed it’s only a slip on though. I thought it was a cat back at least. Would it fit a mk 7? I expected a system like this for a £3k option from VW

    Mk 7.5 discounts

    This is the type of deal I want.

    Mk 7.5 discounts

    Discounts are much bigger than I expected. I can’t get my head around what early cars go for in comparison.

    7.5 have more pops and bangs?

    Thats good to know. I thought it was only 310bhp facelift cars. 👍
  6. If a akra system is available it will be the same. If they make a akra eco with carbon pipes it will be at least £1000 more expensive.

    My R is too quiet

    The 7.5 sounds better. Especially with the Akra.
  8. I wouldn’t order a new one without one. I love them on m3’s. I was told it was unavailable aftermarket? I contacted akra and vw when I was planning on buying a older car. Akra said they couldn’t supply as they made them for vw. VW said they were not available. If if it’s a full system. £3120 is a bargain for a akra.

    7.5 have more pops and bangs?

    Thanks for the replies. Mind made up. 7.5 it is 👍🏻
  10. Lowest price I’ve had through car wow is £33,400 with DSG, DCC and Akrapovic. Not bothered about leather as I like the standard seats in the 7.5. Considering the the cost of aftermarket Akra systems (£5000 average) it’s tempting. More than I want to spend in all honesty but man maths says it makes more sense than £20k on a well spec’d 14 plate. I don’t understand why anyone would pay £29k for a used base spec 2017 7.5 with 7k miles.
  11. I agree. I think it’s even worse with early cars by comparison. Fully loaded 2014 cars are anywhere upto £23k. You can get a 2014 M4 for £27k.
  12. Thanks for the advice. I wasnt even even considering buying new as I hate the initial depreciation. I done it once in 2009 with a Brera v6 and swore I’d never do it again. I’ve always leased since. But a decent spec 2014 is around £20k so they hold their value better than most. I’m thinking the akra exhaust is £3k well spent too.
  13. Am I correct in assuming the prices car wow offer are for pcp only and not cash buyers? *seen the cash tab after I posted.
  14. Does the 7.5r have more pops and bangs like the facelift S3? standard spec seems better than the older cars and they’re not much more expensive taking everything into consideration. I was was looking at a nice spec 14 r (pro nav, leather dcc) . But by the time I bought pretorias, upgraded the sound system and probably replaced the brakes at mot. I’d only be a grand or 2 of a 2017 7.5 r.

    Show us the good parking brigade :)

    I always park miles away from other cars at supermarkets. Yet when I come out some clown has always parked next to me.
