  1. Welcome to the forum 👋 Sure you will enjoy the R
  2. Mike-- 5c means in transit nearly here usually about two weeks from dealers
  3. Had the same problem with mine when I collected from new, apparently twisted rubber seal between two half's of bottle, seal greased and refitted at dealers and as Slider says access was through wheel arch liner.
  4. Nice motor! definitely damaged before collection would be very unlikely stonechip etc. looks like a small cut mark would be well pissed off with that. Thats a full bumper respray to correct properly. Don,t accept a smart repair.
  5. Just a shot in the dark could it be the soundakator behind the bulkhead resonating?
  6. shiiiiiit A45 AMG for me next 👎👎
  7. Had 2 years servicing for £159 with VW PCP deal and paid the finance off after a week. Always wait at the dealership for first service usually done in less than a hour. Tell them not to wash and also leave note on the dash DO NOT WASH Don,t trust any of them!
  8. Vibration like you say on a fairly new car is either wheel balancing, tyre damage or wheel damage you don,t say which alloys you have but the Pretoria alloys are prone to easily being damaged/buckled by potholes etc.
  9. Not everyone's taste in colour or would,nt have been discontinued saying that reflex silver was dropped (not available on R) in favour of white/silver and that was a very popular colour, looks like primer to me in certain lights. Always liked Turmeric but decided against because of resale fears. Although like you say scarcity might hold residuals. Who knows
  10. Are you breaking gently to a stop without the auto hold kicking in, then as soon as you release the brake the car senses movement and restarts virtually straightaway have done that with mine.
  11. Some dealers say it stands for W.ant L.ess T.o P. /x 😙
  12. I New Rs back in stock at my local VW dealer (VW Crewe) fairly basic spec. and top end price. Both new WLTP versions 300ps thought the three door had been axed?
  13. VERY VERY ANNOYING some people just don't care watched them just throw their doors back. Won,t leave mine on a supermarket carpark unless I can park well away from the entrance otherwise I will sit in it while the missus shops.
  14. Golf R was my first ever auto you won't regret it. Go for DSG standard clutch weak in the manuals.
  15. Was offered £14,500 for my Jan 13 reg Mk 7 GTI PP three door last July from VW which I thought was a reasonable offer, tried a basic advert on auto trader at £15,200 and accepted £15000 from Prestige cars. Northumberland on the same day I picked up my new R, they transferred the money to my bank and even dropped me off over 30 miles out of their way to collect my R. It was advertised at £16995 for many weeks after.
