  1. A little fun I had whilst researching the MK8. Seems VW are thinking of producing a MK8 Golf R Plus? Thoughts? Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  2. With these cars I've found there is a fine line between a nice bit of extra noise and chavvy pops and bangs, a res delete/catback does suffice without making the cars too loud The stickers are to advertise the channel I have, but I understand it's not to everybody's taste, atleast it's not plastered in the things [emoji847] Can you PM me the figures for wingbacks please? The bird poo was cleaned off afterwards [emoji16][emoji106] Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  3. Fun little topic I did a video on, be interesting to hear what your thoughts were on this. What do you hate? What do you wish was different? Don't get me wrong I love the car, just a few niggles! Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  4. Hi folks, I was doing a little bit of fleabay browsing (its Friday afternoon and I'm bored) There seems to be quite a lot of "bits and bobs" available for the Golf on places like that and Aliexpress. I wanted a little bit of inspiration, maybe you'll inspire others too with the weird and wonderful car bits that aren't your usual stuff. I'll start. - Universal diffuser fins - I didn't want to shell out on a diffuser at the time so I opted for some fins, can definitely tell the difference but its very subtle.

    New R 400bhp

    The new Golf R won't be 400 bhp. AutoCar have been known to spout some right brown stuff over the years, plus their renderings of the MK8 just look like a MK7 photoshopped. 340/350 bhp max in the next R is definitely achievable and also realistic. They're talking about pairing the engine up with a mild-hybrid, so even if they stick it on to a MK7/MK7.5 it would make 330/340. They'll probably tone down the engine way below it's max to stick it at 350bhp. That will mean that when it comes to modifying, mapping and the like you're more than likely going to see 420/430bhp from a Stage 1 maybe. Again, all speculation.
  6. You'll need it for Stage 2 anyway. I would get it done now.
  7. I've wrapped certain bits, usually wing mirrors. I know it's difficult but 80% of getting a good wrap is down to the preparation

    Failed to stop

    Always in bother you! Only thing I'd suggest is to take it to VW for a check. Report the plate, it's not about the damage but about the tosser that decided to H&R..
  9. Drove the R to work today. Debating on what to do next/creating a list of "wants" including: Maxton/TRC Lowline Emmanuele Design Springs Stage 3... maybe... one day.... Wrapping the car (myself) Fully machine polishing the car (prior to wrap) Plenty others that probably won't happen but we will see.
  10. I don't believe so, it can be checked via VCDS and whatever system VW used in their dealerships
  11. Sad to see you getting rid of the R Jona but needs must. Hope to see you back soon
  12. The X amount of LC's before invalidated warranty is a myth yes, but if it's the probable cause to an issue they wouldn't cover it. The LC counter is used more so as a gauge as to whether the problem at hand was caused by it.
  13. Applied some of this to the Golf! Great stuff, easy to apply and can be used as a top up to wax, sealant or ceramic coating, or it can be used on a non-protected car.
  14. Brentacre is like for like on mods as long as they are declared
