    Mk7 Golf R Order thread - part 2

    If it helps settle some of you, we have about 8-12 new R's in our compound just now, and there are 4 in the car park awaiting pdi tomorrow.

    What did you do to your R today?

    Fitted coilovers and then stripped & cleaned the front brakes. Intended to paint the disc hubs but ran out of time.. and motivation.

    Nice. Not as thirsty as the M3 too which I'm sure you'll approve of πŸ‘

    Rusty discs

    Ain't that the truth. VW discs are terrible.

    We buy any car

    Dealers tend to be slightly less that WBAC, but then don't tend to low ball you like WBAC can when they inspect the car, so in the end it can work out best to go direct to a dealer. MK7 GTI's are thin on the ground, I know this is an R forum but a good MK7 GTI will fetch strong money just now.

    GTi TCR.

    Interesting that they're quicker than the Clubsport S. Those things were/ are great fun
  7. Very nice! It sounds brilliant. Perhaps even how they really should have sounded from factory?

    Just ordered new golf r 7.5

    Hi, Cars are starting to come through now. The delay eased off around 1-2 months ago. VW also went over to a new system this weekend which should speed things up even more so. The worst of the delays have long passed so I'm confident your delivery date will be accurate enough.

    Ultimate Green Focus RS

    I sold one of these recently. Like yourself had Escort Cosworths previously and wanted some of that RS feeling back without paying ridiculous money. I enjoyed the car over a few months but found it too loud and that RS paranoia slowly creeped back. Sold it for more than I paid too, which is something that I've found only happens with RS's - in my experience anyway. Enjoy. One in that condition is money in the back because the only folk buying them now are the people that are avoiding the ropey ones.

    Working under car.

    Yes, you could if you want to prevent any damage. You can buy jack covers most places that'll fit over it nice and snug, rather than a puck that's sat on top.

    4 axle stands will be perfectly fine. Railway sleeper idea would work too, but if you have 4 stands I'd use those.
  12. Thank you! πŸ‘ Ooo! 10 to go! πŸ˜ƒ
  13. I feel like I'm just posting and old trite to get to 25. Don't want to buy coilovers only to find there are some for sale in the classifieds. Tempted to reply to 25 newbie posts saying "hi"
