  1. From the photos I’ve seen so far, it appears the body coloured section of the PP rear spoiler is part of the tailgate and not just bonded on. If so, upgrading to the PP rear spoiler on a standard R will be very expensive. I once had to replace a tailgate on a MK7 which cost £900 in total.
  2. Have you checked out eBay? I got Pro springs last year for £141 delivered from seller rallyshop.pl
  3. GTi fogs are optional along with the lit up strip in the grille. Don’t know if they are available separately or come together. Certainly an option anyone with taste won’t pick!
  4. Looks likely the diagonal body colour sections on the lower bumper are fake. Expect final lower grille will be a continuous “letterbox” with gloss black slats as per the MK7.
  5. Looks like an SUV with that arch gap!
  6. Yes those are the basic tools you'll need. If you're routing the cable under the back seat you'll also need to notch the two plastic beams that sit below the raised boot floor. You can just see how I did it in the top left of my pic. The plastic cuts easily with a Stanley knife. You'll also need to code the sub to 60 for the estate with a programming dongle.
  7. Fitted the spare wheel sub to my estate at the weekend. Hardware exactly the same, although I notched the two plastic below floor beams to allow the cable to pass from below the seat to the wheel well (hatch does not have these beams).
  8. I think you should save yourself the stress of trying to decide and just sell the wheels to me. I’ve been after a set for ages!
  9. When undisguised those headlights will be fugly!
  10. If you look closely it appears the tail lights are disguised. At least I hope they are as they look rubbish otherwise!
  11. Love the wheels and keen to have a set myself. Agree with the comments on black roof rails (I have them 😀). When I was searching for my car I considered buying a car with silver rails and then swapping them. At the time I could have got a set from eBay second hand. Most base spec Golfs come with black rails, so they should be easy enough to source from a breaker etc. Just an idea.
  12. Finished the winter prep. of the R last month but never posted an update. Full machine polish and coated with some Gtechniq products. Fitted some unbranded plates. Had a set VZs from my last car redone in anthracite and fitted some new boots. I'm not 100% if the style suits the car, but I definitely like the colour. They look small compared to the 19s, and the car could do with a drop. But they'll certainly do for winters! Also picked up some billet aluminium flappy paddles from the classifieds. They do extend below the wheel spokes, although it's hard to see in the pics.
  13. Welcome. Will keep an eye out for you.
