  1. Its a good deal but without a link to the page or company name, it doesnt really help anyone! πŸ˜‰
  2. Some more on it here: https://www.carmagazine.co.uk/spy-shots/volkswagen/vw-golf-gti-mk8-whats-in-store-for-2019s-hot-hatch/ The new 2020 VW Golf R The next VW Golf R is, again, powerful and composed – an uber-GTI with tidier road manners and a more comprehensive specification. It shares its 328bhp turbocharged 2.0-litre four with the forthcoming Arteon shooting brake. The peak torque of 295lb ft is distributed to all four wheels via the seven-speed DSG. Expect an acceleration time of 4.3sec and relatively frugal fuel consumption. A 48-volt system with mild hybrid technology should be available on all three high-end Golfs. This is the GTI New dash
  3. Not great, wonder why it doesn’t affect models outside the US? https://www.nbcnews.com/business/consumer/volkswagen-recalls-679-000-u-s-vehicles-could-roll-away-n1045721

    I've Made It!

    You wont be needing your R anymore now you have a free bus pass πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‚
  5. Yes, pretty easy to fit and I'm no expert at these things. Follow booth's guide above, If you read on through the thread, there's a mention about pulling out the cubby tray which I found very easy and had it off within 10 secs:
  6. I was wondering how much better Eco mode was for economy. In that case, I wont ever bother with it!
  7. Indeed. I’ve NEVER used it once in the 4 months of owning my car. 😁 Maybe I’d get over the magic 40mpg if I did, but that would be boring.
  8. Right, gotcha. I'm a couple years older and yes is does encourage you to drive a little spiritedly! Could be a licence loser if dont keep an eye out, even though it has 300bhp. πŸ˜‰ I think its all part of the fun of driving it. Its not too "in your face" like say an M3 (or a Focus RS, so I've heard) but has great all around ability for driving steady if you want to, or a loon on occasion.
  9. Yes thats a good point buying local. When I went to pick up mine from my local dealer the car could not be registered with the DVLA for some reason and hence could not be taxed. Therefore I had to go away and come back another day .... but no big deal as I'm only 4 miles away from the dealership. However, there was another guy in the dealership just before me in the exact same boat picking up his new R ... but he had travelled 80 miles from London and had to go back without a new car. He must of been well cheesed off.
  10. Thanks for that..... one of the jobs I've been meaning to do is disable the washer jets.
  11. Felt like a hooligan? lol! Was yours stage 2 tuned or something?! If you want hooligan try an M3. The Golf R is a pussy cat compared to that. πŸ˜‰
  12. I've done over 5K miles now, so I suppose I'd better check it. πŸ™‚ I've checked the tyre pressures twice though. πŸ˜‰
  13. I think you should have got about Β£1200 refund for missing camera, keyless and lane assist. Almost sounds like they given you a car that's been hanging around since last year instead of a newly built one. Is it possible to check the actual build date of the car?
  14. Seems about the same as carwow. Have you tried them? Or any brokers?
  15. Not opened my bonnet since I got the car in March. Are you supposed to check the oil often? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜„
