  1. My insurance went up one year when I did a renewal by about £200 and I couldn't understand why. The reason was my job role was updated to Transport Manager as I work in logistics rather than just Manager and because they thought I worked in a Transport role I would be jumping in and out of cars all day or using mine lots for work. I explained it sits in an office carpark and I use company vehicles on their insurance so the advisor swapped my job to Office Manager and it went back down by £200

    Haha what spec? Having thoughts of selling your R anyway?

    My last Golf was black I know your pain [emoji23] Looks a nice motor pal [emoji106] I’m still close on pulling the trigger. Just to get a car sorted I’m sure I’ll love it either way after having a Nissan for so many weeks since I crashed [emoji23]

    There's really not loads of choice when it comes to this spec. 3DR, Lapiz blue, DSG, Facelift Model, Under 30k miles. Not that I've found under £30k on AutoTrader, VW Sites etc I am close on getting a Black or going 5DR with a decent spec as they can be found easily. But didn't really want to compromise on a 5DR

    Looking for a 3DR exclusively, nice spec and car but also wouldn’t go for something highly modified. There are loads of 5DR about, hardly any 3DR 😕

    Not heard the term full facelift model before. But if I was to hazard a guess some 17 plate last I’ve looked at have the updated cloth interior but just not the updated digital cockpit and media system. Is this not what they mean?

    I would buy this if it didn’t have such horrendous interior. Really not keen on the cream leather. https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201903256254565 I might just bite the bullet and get the black golf but told the dealer to stand down on me coming down Friday now.

    You guys are terribly too honest and sensible. I have told the dealer I am going to wait a few days and maybe hold out for a Lapiz Blue will give it a few days 😡😢😂😂 Im just so bored looking for a car now lol

    Don't do this to me lads I'm all ready to purchase 😂 I dont mind Black, that's what my old Golf was, they are bitch to keep clean but I fancied a change with Lapiz Blue and I do think it looks a little better, I've just not been able to find one for my price range and spec and I've been looking too long now I'm exhausted. I've had several dealers looking for me, but 3DR Facelift models in Lapiz blue are normally +30K which I dont have and I dont want to purchase private at this price range really. I am compromising here but I need a car lol, worst case scenario I trade it in for a Blue if I am seriously unhappy down the line (unlikely). Anyone else want to throw more doubt my way lol ?? Do appreciate the replies though adds food for thought 😃

    its not quite the spec I was after, would have preferred Climate Windscreen and Lapiz Blue. Prets aren't a big want for me, prone to damage and I quite like the look of the Cadiz alloys. Even the Carbon Nappa wasn't a huge selling point for me, dont mind the Black standard cloth on the 7.5 and would prefer DCC lol I am talking myself out of this as I type it but honestly I'm bored of looking for the perfect spec and I need a car as I had a crash a few weeks back, first one in 15 years and im currently loaning one. Ive managed to get some discount off them and a full tank of fuel just wanted other peoples opinions on this car and spec for the price and if anyone lived local and seen it in person. I think I will be putting down a despot and going down Friday unless anyone or myself 😂 persuades me otherwise. Whats anyone's thoughts on the price? Thanks to all the replies and yes it is big decision and purchase for me, basically a years wage after tax lol

    I’ve been looking for months for the spec I want in a 3DR and it’s been fruitless and frustrating waiting for one to come up [emoji53] I need to purchase a car so wondering what people opinions are on this one. 3DR’s aren’t as common in the used market.
  12. So I have procrastinated about buying a Golf R for nearly a year now, in fact I did purchase one and the purchase went very wrong on collection [emoji20] which kinda put me off spending so much money. Either-way I am pondering on purchasing this car below, can anyone give their opinions on price for spec please?? https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201903296405270 Is anyone local and seen this in person? very close to pulling the trigger on it. Any opinions welcome please. Thanks Scott
  13. It probably won't sell for that price, but you never know maybe another YouTuber will pick it up to gain some AdSense on their channel 😂 I quite like Calvins Car Diary, he seems quite an honest chap, but dont all gift of the gab car salesman I'm still looking for a Golf R but I wouldn't even want to pay 20k for this car, I can see an engine going again at some point and insurance would be a nightmare.
  14. For anyone after some tyres: 4 x Michelin Pilot Sport 4 -225/40 R18 Y (92) £321.94 @ Black Circles https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/4-x-michelin-pilot-sport-4-22540-r18-y-92-cheapest-ever-32194-black-circles-3219987?page=2#thread-comments
  15. My old MK4 GTi had the black Recaro’s in it and they held up well over the years and looked fine. Except the bloody handles to pull the seats forward in the 3DR always snapped off [emoji23] I think the facelift all black interior seats look ok, better than the pre-facelift with the lighter bolsters. I agree with another thread on here where the R should have had bucket racing seats or something better. Still you won’t tempt me towards the tartan [emoji2]
