  1. Thank you everyone. Shame I never got to meet any of you. I have said to a few if it's not sold before the up coming caffeine and machine meet I may take it. Perhaps see some of you there. Glad to say it's had a fair bit of interest on auto trader including a phone me call from a well known prestige and super car show room in London. Pretty cool! Sent from my ELS-NX9 using Tapatalk
  2. The older I get. The more I realise there's no such thing as a mid life crisis. In reality, its just the kids and life finally getting to a stage where dad can by himself something nice with the money that he earns [emoji23] Thanks for kind words mate. Appreciate that x Sent from my ELS-NX9 using Tapatalk
  3. Who knows. I might win the lottery yet and be able to keep it..... Sent from my ELS-NX9 using Tapatalk
  4. In short, my partners has lost her job and another mini me might be on the way, I have a company car, and she has a car, so this is a luxury that in the grand scheme of things I cannot afford now. It's heart breaking. But that's life I guess..... Going to re-focus on getting a bigger house then who knows.. maybe one day ill be able to own a car like this again.... If you hear of a man in Oxford jumping off a bridge, you know where I went..... haha x

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    Here for sale is my beloved Golf R Estate, (310bhp Model) I spent 3 months searching for the perfect forever car, to eventually find this. It was Swindon VW's Demo Car, being used by the store manager to commute to work. Bought from VW 11-01-20 with no previous owners @ 8500miles. Begrudged sale due to sudden change in financial circumstance. This is a rare Golf R Estate with the added VW "Black Edition Package" I don't think there is another one with the same specification on the market. VW Black pack consists of Black Roof Rails, Black Wing Mirrors and Black 19" Pretoria wheels. I have just purchased a brand new set of Micheline Pilot Sport 4s tires, which are the only tires to have on these. I have added some subtle modifications, all original receipts in a folder and fitted by Oxford's top VW specialist (OBD-Works) who is also a close friend. He has worked on all my VW's over the years. Modifications include, Eibach 40mm lowering springs, Reiger Front Splitter (Imported from Germany), Forge Turbo Inlet Adapter, Forge Carbon Fibre induction Housing (Design for this exact car), Forge Cone Air Filter, Forge Silicone Hose Intake, Forge Turbo Muffler Delete. (All original parts are safely stored in boxes, including original springs, all included in sale). Following installation of said parts, it went over to MRC tuning in Banbury (arguably the best in the industry) for an £850.00 engine and gear box map, this concludes much smoother gear transitions, 386bhp and 540nm Torque. Additionally, I have had a state of the art 24/7 tracking system installed, I will not disclose any product information on this advert for obvious reasons, upon viewing happy to go over the system installed and show you the synchronization with mobile app etc. This car HAS NOT been used as a daily family car, it was a third car, purchased by me, a life long VW fanatic, as my dream car, for family holidays and weekends. Since my purchase Jan 2020 @ 8500miles, I have had 2 extensive Engine and Gear Box (Haldex) Services: May 20 @ 11,000 miles and Feb 21 @ 14,600 miles; seems excessive, but as said, this was my dream car bought to last me forever, my intention was to get a full Engine and Gear Box service done annually regardless of mileage. Unsure what else I can add, please don't hesitate to contact me with any queries. Joy riders will be turned away. More than happy to send more photos over mobile etc. Many Thanks Next MOT due 29/05/2022, Full service history, Black, 1 owner, £29,950 Vehicle registered: 29/05/2019

  7. Hope you're all well, Does anyone know the official terminology for the VW optional "Black Styling Package"?
  8. Thank you for the kind feedback guys! Appreciate it!
  9. Lovely mate! Will be ordering mine end of month [emoji16][emoji106] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  10. Haha. They're the exact 2 things that make me dislike it [emoji23][emoji108] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  11. Look at some reviews on YouTube about the Mk8. It's completely down to personal preference. Imo the 7.5 is far better than an 8. I think In 10 years time the 7.5s will be worth more than 8's. Lovely car! Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  12. I've been looking at these! Let me know what the fit and quality is like please Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  13. Perhaps the map just makes the difference in the various modes as mentioned less noticeable! Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  14. That's good to know. Would be good to have clear indication which mode (S or D) you are in when in manual. Rather than just "M" for both! Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
