  1. Decals seem to give the rear a small lift, looks smart! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Superb looking R & the wheel colour is epic Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Lovely looking R, always love the contrast of the pano roof against the white! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Had a nosey around one at dealership recently, quite like the look of them was grey and looked very stealthy, do like the blue a lot! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Yip, seems to be the thing they have never got a hang of for some reason which is annoying! I tend to just have podcasts on in car so not a big issue for me particularly but as I say the gti with the basic audio is much better Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Seats are awesome and a lot more space in type r compared to other half’s gti, but infotainment and audio miles ahead in golf imo Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. What colour was type R and what colour would u go for? Looks better in some colours than other’s especially from the back due to plastic inserts in rear bumper Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Admittedly I haven’t owned or even driven a R before but I do own the current civic type r and every other previous generation sold so very familiar with them. So on that it’s an awesome car, extremely capable with a lot more expensive and powerful cars struggle to keep up with on a good twisty driving road, the grip is incredible, seats are awesome and I find it very comfortable long distance driving, I daily mine and love it looks yes you either love it or hate it, they are also extremely reliable. Now possibly to get to the point everyone wondering why I am commenting, my misses has a indium 7.5 gti which I love to drive find very comfortable and capable, tech better than type r, sound system night and day better and even exhaust/engine sound is better, if your looking to mod then much more availability on VAG platform cars and would appear to be more reasonable pricing wise although the current type r with being a global car has more support mod wise than previous generation! 2 superb cars to have as potential options I would think, again not having driven an R but if the GTI is anything to go by then it will be superb. Go drive both on the same route if possible, make sure you get service plan thrown in with the Honda if you go that route! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I have a FK8 type R and my misses has a 7.5GTI and it just standard audio but it’s night and day difference to mine, miles better to the point even she noticed how poor the FK8 is! Has so much going for it but audio ain’t one of them in the Honda Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Like the look of them, who did you use? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Do you have any pictures with the wheels and did you go with CM for them, what size and thoughts on quality? I thought about springs and then like you with roads being shocking changed my mind, oh and also the fact this ain’t my car! [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
