  1. It will sneak in under the £40K higher tax limit once you deduct the VED, and on the road charges. A bargain almost given it's got DCC, leather & electric tailgate as standard.
  2. I think the VZ3 is just the addition of leather seats & electric tailgate A bargain relatively speaking! Have to agree there! VZ2 Spec. DCC, 19" alloys & reversing camera as standard. Also got front foglights Wheels 19" Machined black and silver alloy wheels with 235/35 R19 91Y tyres Standard Dark tinted rear windows Door mirrors (electrically adjustable, folding and heated)
  3. Interesting pricing relative to the Golf R 5-door never mind the forthcoming Estate which I'd guess will be circa £42500 without options: https://www.cupraofficial.co.uk/cars/cupra-range/cupra-leon-estate.html?
  4. I did it online this week. No problem if you have your registration document and certificate of entitlement to hand. Called LV straight after. No charge or admin fee.
  5. Not very IMHO. Looks awful TBH. Has it got any wheels fitted?? Each to their own, but silver or anthracite or whatever would look far better.
  6. I'm not convinced the rear end is the final version given the rear difuser is completely different from the hatch (no gloss black inserts) and the number plate is door mounted. No room for the R badge below the boot release (no bad thing TBH). It's interesting to compare the lines of all 3 wagons from VW, Seat & Skoda.
  7. I believe they call that 'sleeker' looking!
  8. Thanks for the feedback. That's exactly what I was hoping to hear. More so given they are pricier. Will maybe hold out in the hope they reduce the price a bit more for the white ones. Like you, I prefer the OEM look.
  9. Osram LEDDMI 5G0 BK S LEDriving Dynamic LED Mirror Indicator-Black Edition Bit of a price drop on the black edition on Amazon just now: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07RYT5ZL9/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_1?smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&th=1 Might well invest in a set as it appears they are better than the much cheaper Chinese versions. Has anyone fitted these to a 7.5R?
  10. I think this closing quote sums up the Golf perfectly: But the new Golf R has the breadth of personality in its locker to be a grown-up’s run-around and yet… (unlike the overly polite BMW M135i and Audi S3) offer layers of handling panache to uncover when you’re in the mood to exploit its monumental cross-country pace. It just does everything. I do like the phrase 'grown-up's run-around'!
  11. Is that a plus or a minus re the all black wheels? I see CMWheels are quick off the mark with Estoril replica's! https://www.facebook.com/cmwheelsltd
  12. You might be right, however there are cars around in stock as has already been posted. Surprised they haven't been sold TBH. Here's another: https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/new/202101127902745?
  13. This must be worth a couple of quid wasted just incase in lieu of the anticipated delays: https://www.botb.com/prizes/cars/volkswagen-golf-r/?showabout=true&utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=Advert&utm_campaign=1233-Advert-W-Golf-R-New-Bafin&fbclid=IwAR1tArBDbMFPjEFeX4BdN9EovaewkuI3ZZB9z3fwbCM4ltzFdZXjk_57bgA
  14. Am I the only one who can't take his eyes off the 'saggy leather' drivers seat? If it's like that on a new car what's it going to look like after 6 months? Yep, it caught my eye right away. The standard seats are far better looking and free!
  15. Nice! Exactly the same spec as I would go for if I were in the market for an 8R. The 7.5R PP had better brakes but not this case this time around. The exhaust is an overpriced extravagance IMHO. Having had a few cars with leather seats and later regretted it, the latest 8R seats in fabric look spot-on with the blue inserts, far nicer than the leather offered. It's horrid!
