  1. All sorted having been 1 week away/ in the shop. ( Did a big service too on the last day) I have to thank Lookers Wimbledon for their excellent customer service.
  2. Found this service bulletin on the topic: http://www.vwgolf.org/removing_and_installing_front_trim_for_sliding_sunroof-625.html
  3. Sadly I noticed after the car was detailed today that mine cracked too on my 2019 7.5R with 14k miles on the clock. My detailer checked his Golf R when he got home and his is also cracked. To be fair - I went to VW this afternoon and they acknowledged the problem and said I can just book it in and it will be repaired under warranty.
  4. Hi @Zabba I bought a ex VW UK (manager / staff member's car) via a VW Dealer through the approved used scheme.

  8. Thanks @Booth11 - I had a long road to becoming a full member on here - twice cancelling lease orders on MK7'0's due to being messed around. I've had many VW's over the years including 3 x MK1's tin tops, a MK1 Clipper in dark blue, and a VW 3 GTI and a Corrado G60. It's been a while since I've had a VW and I absolutely love the DSG ...in Sport mode! When I realised there was the Atlantic Blue option on the R, I pounced!
  9. Hi everyone, Just a quick note to say "Hi" - been lurking for a long time, but finally collected my R just before lockdown and have now managed to register on the site. Below is a pic of the new-to-me Atlantic Blue R (one on the left) with Pretoria's Vienna leather and a sunroof - sadly no Dynaudio, but will resolve that later. 🙂 Shout out to Robinsons' VW in Norwich whom have been very helpful in prepping the car (without me seeing it or test driving it) and facilitating a wheel colour change to gunmetal grey. Looking forward to gain a wealth of R knowle
