    Back in a vag!

    welcome back. looks great in 3door! Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  2. See a variety of review videos saying the golf R engine is forged vs the GTI which isn't but then some say its just a GTI engine but power increased. What's the actual answer to this.... is some components of the 7R & 7.5r engine forged?

    Acceleration off the line

    I first read that as if you managed to do a standing start on the M1 motorway! I have a manual so can't really comment apart from if your comparing yourself to no other car off the line it would be hard to gauge how quick it actually is!. I find 2nd/3rd gear pulls most impressive. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    I still haven't seen many on the road so consider it more of a rarity is suppose. it's titanium right? is it because its different material to stainless steel and produces a different tone ? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    5 cylinder r testing

    I wonder what would come out more exspensive though... a newly developed hybrid or manipulating an existing engine in vag groups locker.. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    5 cylinder r testing

    https://www.motor1.com/news/275805/vw-admits-5-cylinder-golf/ so I have a theory. with audi always progressing the rs3 quicker and costing more than the r .will that have the exspensive hybrid engine and the mk8 to get the rs3 engine ? either way .. I'm still keen to get on the order register ! Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Returning my R

    lovely alternative you've got. I do think audi have upped their game in the last few years with the s3 Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Tyres for winter

    interesting to hear what the result is on this... from taking a brief look online for prices it seems all weather ones are more popular compared to a few years back . wondered if this is the case and worth me considering. ultimately I think I would still prefer proper winter ones Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    What do you dislike about your R?

    it's always a shame that the golf r is normally around 20 to 40 percent down on power compared to some of its top marks in other makes. a remap gets this sorted but still. The Gti had this problem too Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
