  1. In case you are looking for a new R and don’t want to wait for a factory order, Parkway have 60 unregistered ones for sale with various specs https://www.parkwayvolkswagen.co.uk/offers/pre-reg/
  2. According to the VW website keyless is only standard on the 5 door and not the 3 door

    German WWW site order date

    That’s not so bad, the fourth quarter of 2018 is just over a week away

    Mk7. 5 golf r

    The performance pack is the uprated breaks which it has, the lip spoiler which it has and a de restricted top speed. So the next time you take the other half to Tesco, if it reaches 166mph instead of 155mph you definitely have the full performance pack 😯

    That’s a bargain £20k off a nearly new car and just the spec you wanted too. Happy days!

    You got it for £28.5 when it was advertised for £39.7 that was a mega discount!

    Looks like a very good spec about £46k list. Do mind me asking what you got it for?

    Mk7. 5 golf r

    It looks like it does have the performance pack as the calipers are silver and it has the additional spoiler. I think you can spec Pretoria’s instead of Spielberg’s wirh the pp.

    Engine blown

    Have you seen this recent thread? https://www.vwroc.com/forums/topic/27525-my-r-is-poorly/ Virtually the same age as yours and vw paid for most of the repair. Hope you get it sorted

    How common is the Golf R where you live?

    Quite a lot of mk7 Rs a lot more common than the gti now

    Should i buy advice?

    Thanks Dave. Can I ask what your experience with orange wheels was like? Was the supplying garage near to you or was it delivered to your door? I have found that for the spec that I am looking at drive the deal is about £1000 less than carwow but I have not looked at orange wheels yet.

    Ok thanks, pay it off the next day seems to be the way forward then! I guess vw are counting on most people not doing that and paying a high rate of interest

    Or if you request a settlement figure is that the loan amount plus 58 days interest plus interest on the number of days you have the loan?

    Should i buy advice?

    Thanks Shug and Parttimer looks like new and not pre-registered is the way to go. Is it necessary to pay off the loan within 14 days?

    DDave that sounds like a very good deal. Are you saying that £31800 included the £1500 vw contribution? Are you allowed to pay it off the loan straight away and not have to pay any interest or penalties? If that’s the case I may try that as it saves a further £1500. Is the two years servicing part of the PCP deal or did you take it out separately? Sorry Jon-Paul I didn’t intend to subvert your thread
