  1. Congrats on your new R, looks great, and great spec. I just picked mine up this morning. All be it a hatchback. Health to drive Sir. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Ok folks. Thought I would update this. My heart wasn’t in the Lapiz blue, beautiful car and colour but I knew I wanted something less common, at least in Northern Ireland I figured out none of the VW dealers here don’t actually advertise their new cars, so on Thursday I rang them all to see what they had. There was a lot to choose from but only one worth going to see, who also had grey TCR. Contacted dealer who I had semi agreed the deal for the Lapiz and told him I was going to test the other 2 cars before I made my final decision. Friday afternoon I flew home from London and went straight to the dealer at 4pm. Drove the TCR which was great.. really great but the grey wasn’t for me. The black features really make the car stand out but I know I would get sick looking at them. In the showroom sat a metallic black R... this was the one! Deep Pearl Black Pan roof Vienna Leather Spielberg wheels 90% tints Didn’t drive it, signed my life away @ 5.15pm after a lot of haggling! Cherished transfer registered @ 5.30pm after I took out a new insurance policy while I the sales person was completing paper work. Ended up getting just over 15% discount (including finance contribution) along with 2 years free servicing. There was no one to make the plates for the car so had to drive the 75 miles back this morning to collect it. Here she is. Sorry for the essay. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I hope so. I haven’t had a performance golf since 2001. My first was 1997 when I bought my first car, 1987 MK2 GTi. Car cost £1620 to buy and £1800 to insure. It is a new golf sitting in the showroom. I’ll be the first owner. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I wanted to thank you all for your input. I have decided I am going for the R. I collect it on Friday. Looking forward to sitting behind the wheel!! Lapiz blue Carbon leather Pan Roof. Ordered some styling mods, so hopefully they should arrive Friday. Compared to carwow my dealer was £350 off the best price for the same spec offer I received. Also I am in Northern Ireland, carwow dealer wasn’t Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Awesome looking R. Black accents really make it stand out. Health to enjoy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I see where you are coming from Mardon, Not a question of doable or not, it’s the principle. Like most of us, I give Her Majesty more than enough pennies! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. You could be right!! I think it could be a younger mans car.. that being said I am 38!! [emoji15] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Cheers for this. I’ve asked the dealer via email yesterday. Still hasn’t got back to me!! I went on to car wow and when I thrash it out all in all there is between 3-600 difference in the best quote of cars available now and my dealer. He is offering me 2 years servicing and he will take a trade in which is on its last legs.. don’t get me wrong I will try to screw him a bit more. I am leaning towards the R. If I were 28 I would have the TCR. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. It does not have Akropovic exhaust. It’s a 3dr however. Sexy looking thing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I have asked the dealer the question regards list price and tax. Waiting for him to get back to me. Fingers crossed it can be avoided. Seems excessive to say the least. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Bloody hell. I wasn’t aware of this at all. I must ask them today. Cheers for the heads up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Really!!! Can you elaborate on this NWR Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Thank you NWR for the quick reply. Yes both DSG. The R was in showroom when I want to test drive a 2017 R, therefore I didn’t have any input into the spec. Lapiz blue DSG Carbon leather Pan roof They have give me a good discount on the price list price £40,450, which came down to £37,500 then dealer contribution of £1500 for taking their finance. Out of interest I must check carwow. Any input for GTI TSR owners would be great. Thanks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Hi all, I am in the position of purchasing a new unregistered R, I have given the stealers a deposit with the view of returning after I have thought over it a few days. Sod’s law would have it after I left the showroom another stealer advertised 3dr GTI TCR (I think nardo grey equivalent). I have gone on holidays so was not able to test drive it yet. It was my first time driving any R and was thoroughly impressed. Thought my first car was an 87 MK2 GTi which was 15 years ago!! What is the general thoughts from owners of the GTI TCR. Many thanks for your input, as I want to either put R on hold or go ahead. Many thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
