First Drive Golf R 7.5
This will be final post on this topic as I don't want to clog up new owners experiences reviews etc.
Had my first drive yesterday, mixture of A roads and Motorway with a mixture of weather conditions; bearing in mind my previous car was a mk.7 Golf R running on 19' Pretoria wheels.
The difference in feel in the mk. 7.5 is noticeable, steering feels a little sharper (18' Cadiz wheels as standard) and I'm pretty sure the car's slightly quicker. The additional 7th gear is a game changer for me as I am on the motorway a fair amount, this additional gear clearly changes the ratios on the lower gears which may explain the sensation of the car pulling quicker.
As I mentioned previously I'm booked in at Awesome GTi for a stage 1 remap and DSG upgrade software and will at the same time install Raceline Performance R600 intake system with associated Raceline intake pipe, hoses etc.
Raceline Performance Sport spring set lowering 25mm all round and this will conclude the performance mods for now.
Stock exhaust (no res-delete) couldn't handle drone on motorway, Stock brakes (mmm this might change)
New car smell is heavenly, clean white door shuts are a thing of beauty, going into AutoWrap Manchester shortly to have car de-badged, chrome strip on front grill changed to gloss black, wing mirrors wrapped in gloss black and red rear reflectors on bumbers wrapped in white vinyl (never seen it but think it will look ace)
I changed my rear badge yesterday to gloss black with white vinyl backing, I've got front badge overlay in Gloss Black with white VW decal but I'm going to get Autowrap to install this (see image below) ordered from Australia on ebay!
I installed Maxton Gloss Black Ver.3 rear spoiler yesterday, front Maxton Splitter Version 3. has arrived (not my bag will get Awesome GTi to install)
I'll continue to post in other topics and keep updating as the mods are ticked off
