    fuel flap stuck

    Might have to replace the actuator. Had to replace on Audi A3 as well, slightly different fuel flap but same actuator.

    Why did you buy a Golf R?

    Been driving B7 RS4 for last 5 years so wanted 4 wheel drive replacement. Was looking for a daily driver which the RS4 wasn't used as and was between Golf R, Audi S3 saloon or older Audi RS3. Audi RS3 ridiculously quick but didn't think I could live with it as a daily driver so was between the other two. Struggled to get the spec on the Audi S3 so went for the Golf. With little bit of tuning expecting to get similar performance to RS3 but with a bit more comfort and toys.

    Golf r to s3 saloon

    Despite the cars having same drivetrain I feel the Golf R drives that little bit better for some reason. Personally I love Sepang Blue S3 saloon which has the slight edge on my Lapiz Blue Golf R. I went for the Golf as I was struggling to find Sepang Blue S3 saloon with the spec I have in the Golf such as virtual dash. Not a lot between them but everyone will have their own opinion.

    In praise of Collinite

    Another vote for Collinite. I use 476 for the body and 845 for the wheels. Really good finish with very little buffing required. Have used 845 on the bodywork and it is great too.

    Service with mods

    I would take it to a recommended Specialist rather than main dealer. Have still to find a main dealer for any car I have owned that I would recommend!!!!

    Need some new boots

    Another vote for Michelin Pilot Sports. Best tyre I have fitted on previous performance cars and always better than the recommended tyre.
  8. Probably been asked many times but is the MK7.5 Golf R fitted with timing chain or belt? If belt what is recommended change intervals?

    Pretoria Refurb in Glasgow area?

    If you are still looking for place to refurb alloys would recommend Alloy Wheel Specialist in Cumbernauld. Had several wheels done here and they have the contract now for Audi.
  10. Looking to get diagnostic scanner tool for MK7.5 Golf R and looking to see if this will work with MK7.5 Golfs. Anyone know if it will work or not? Cheers

    RS4, M3, C63

    Juat sold my B7 RS4 and would give a vote for that. Make sure yo u get a good one as parts are expensive. Vital things to get checked: DRC been replaced with same or coilovers£2000-4000; engine carbon clean£600-1000; clutch £2500; discs and pads £1800. Other common problems are suspension arms and auxiliary radiators. I prefer four wheel drive and have owned and driven most of the performance saloons and RS4 definitely high on list.

    Stage 1 Remap any issues?

    Stay in Central Scotland. I have always went to Autohaus in Edinburgh with my Vag cars ans they do APR remaps.

    Stage 1 Remap any issues?

    It is a Mk7.5 ànd wasn't aware there wasn't a map for the DSG box. Thanks for that.
  14. Looking for feedback from owners who have done Stage 1 remap on their Golf R. Planning to do stage 1 remap including DSG remap from APR. Has anyone had any problems with this work obviously with the turbo? My car is only year old so still under warranty but would be void if remap detected so looking for feedback on any problems encountered by other owners.
  15. Been looking at few VW Golf R's MK7.5 and noticed something unusual. On the Lapiz Blue ones I looked at the engine bay and underside of bonnet are not the same colour as the Lapiz Blue paint. They are a duller grey/blue colour. Is this the way they are manufactured now as I was thinking these cars had front end shunts but no other evidence to indicate any accident damage. Anyone confirm this is normal? Cheers
