  1. I think it's a known fact you cant just order an Akapovic from the dealer and ask them to fit it if your car was not fitted with it from new. Maybe the rear spoiler is the same? I've no idea. Depends if VW will allow it I guess.
  2. I got that figure from BMWs own website (as posted from screenshot up above), so that it wrong then? And where did you get that info that is 1665kg?
  3. I agree the Civic Type R is supposedly (saying that I've never driven one) the best dynamic driver's car on the market at present. However, whereas the Golf 8R's achilles heel is the infotainment and lack of buttons, the Type R's achilles heel is the god awful looks making it look like a chav chariot. Two completely different negatives but it goes to show there is no perfect car out there. ๐Ÿ™‚ Even the toned down Type R looks bloody awful to me and I wouldn't be seen dead in it, however well it drove ๐Ÿ™‚
  4. Here is that damning Evo review that I recall was in the magazine a couple of months back. Undercooked and irritating in equal measure, the Mk8 Golf Rโ€™s execution is found wanting, and itโ€™s a loss for the class ๐Ÿ˜• https://www.evo.co.uk/volkswagen/golf/r?refid=E345FA178C0BB388955714CB6DECB8E5&utm_medium=email do you think he just was just having a bad day?
  5. Thanks Becs. Iโ€™ll email them and find out, then post back on here (in the correct forum) ๐Ÿ˜‰
  6. Becs, do you know if the first generation OBD11 device does SFD coding? Doesn't say a lot about the older version on their website in that regard as I suppose they want you to upgrade to the new one.
  7. I had Carplay issues on my 7.5 R. Dealer said they updated it "with the latest software" or so they said, but still had issues now and again. I think mine was a weird one that if you got a text or made a call then occasionally Spotify sound wouldnt work again unless you took the phone off the cable and on again. They blamed Apple ios updates probably causing the issue.
  8. Shame you are selling your 8R Chris, what was the reason for selling? Just the lack of DCC? Or the gremlins? I know what its like when you don't get on with a car, shortest I had one was a Merc for 8 months - then bought my 7.5 R. Only sold that because of the silly high prices in April (which I thought wouldn't last!)
  9. Mines been on order since April and there are options I would like to add. But not going to risk delaying it any longer. It can stay as it is.
  10. Unbelievable than when these cars go in for an update they seem to come back worse. ๐Ÿ˜ž RE the tyres, at least youโ€™ll be able to get some MPS4Sโ€™s soon ๐Ÿ˜
  11. Yes Medway, dealing with James. Iโ€™ve got Performance Pack, DCC, rear camera, winter pack (front and rear seats), HK, Lapiz paint.
  12. That strange as a few of us ordered through DTD and are still waiting. Ordered mine in April from them and have no build date. Very odd how yours has come so quick.
  13. One careful owner, never been raced. Lol But WTF, ยฃ945 a month!! I bet you could buy a new M3 for those monthlies.
  14. Great news. just wondering if delivery time is due to certain options. What options have you got?
  15. I ordered PP back in April so paid for the spoiler in with that pack. But my car is ยฃ2K cheaper with my options than what the price is now on the configurer, even if it has the PP spoiler thrown in for free. ๐Ÿ˜
