      Ther a several owners on here done similarly, using different sombinations of materials& colours to get their preferred look.   Looks great, for me it’s the perforated leather touch that seals it!  Is it A Royal piece of work or elsewhere?

      I Vowed after buying mine that I’d not spend Any more money on it😂😂

      But really, you start modding as soon as you add anything, including ff extras, on top of the standard car.

      So m vow didn’t last long. Winter wheels and tyres bought from another owner on here were my downfall.  And a really good move, imho.  If your geography is such, then these are a big, valuable enhancement.    A boot mat to prevent damage to the floor, - an eBay bargain until I decide which suits me best.  There’s some badges in transit from badgeskins.com......

      and I keep returning to the Lockwood Sill protectors, over and over again😂

      Lowered Springs are I admit a Must to give a better look, but would not help me in how I have to use my R (permanent wheelchair user, and the standard height is great for me getting in/out).

      Regular viewing on here adds to your knowledge of all the other great things that R owners do to their cars.... so I have lists and links to all sorts of useful things for or related to an R.  Phew. It is loads of fun on here, be warned.  Tell your partner in advance!😂😂

      I Look forward to your posts!

    Nice to meet another Paul 👊🏻 tbh I’m still trying to like the dsg, always been manual. Last gti was mk6 and I cried when that was sold I felt more at one with the gti obviously being manual I was driving not just being a steer wheel attendant ha! You open the door to a gti your opening a door thats smothered in history. The R Is a stunning car I’m not regretting buying it the dsg box has just been tuned and in manual is way better gti is and always be a iconic car The R is his angry bi polar brother 🤘🏻
