  1. Hi guys, New to the forum and I have had my (totaly stock) Golf R for just under a month. Looking at making my first mods. I’m adding a Racingline Filter to the stock filter box and having a Res deleted. I have a Manual so I’m unsure as to what difference it will make to the sound? My question is, will I see a noticeable difference in the sound of the car? Also will it add a few more pops and bangs? I know the DSG it makes a big difference but not sure what the difference on a manual will be. Thanks.
  2. New to the forum and Golf R ownership ( have to say I wish i`d brought one years ago ) and I`ve just had the OEM rear badge camera installed as was not installed from new. Factory spec had park pilot. No issues with the reverse camera and seems to be the high line version so very happy with that however when using for the front it just disables video rather then use the park pilot option. I still get audible prompt and a smaller version of the car but missing the guidelines. Is it possible to have both or have I had a wrong rear camera version installed ? Appreciate any advise - obviously a minor gripe with it being front but haven`t spent a fair amount to get installed I like to get fixed if possible.
  3. Hi, I've got a Golf R (66 plate) Mk7 upgraded to a 7.5. Virtual Cockpit and Sat Nav have been installed. I'm getting the below: 1) CORNERING LIGHT (AFS) error message 2) When applying the full beam headlight to flash, the blue logo appears on the virtual cockpit however the headlight beam does not occur. Has anyone else had this issue when upgrading.
  4. Morning everyone, Has anyone else had any luck getting any information from Akrapovic regarding ordering the exhaust as an aftermarket option? I have finally received a response from them saying the downpipe will be available to order in a couple of weeks time. I am more interested in the full system though!
  5. Ok I've had enough of one shiny pipe. Replaced oem exhaust with Scorpion downpipe with sports cat and scorpion cat back with resonator. Lovely burble with bass note, but sick of oem 'tail pipes'. Going to give this a go. 51mm in to twin 76mm out. Will update- bit of a punt but nothing else out there. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Car-exhaust-pipe-H-Model-Akrapovic-Carbon-Exhausts-Dual-End-Tips-for-BMW-BENZ-AUDI-VW/32912588706.html?spm=2114.search0204.3.17.22d8a061AB6vvu&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_1_10065_10068_10130_318_10547_319_10548_10696_10192_10190_10084_10083_10618_452_10307_10820_532_10301_10821_10303_5727311_204_10059_5727211_10884_10887_100031_320_10103,searchweb201603_60,ppcSwitch_0_ppcChannel&algo_expid=f124379e-0732-436e-880f-062909625cbf-2&algo_pvid=f124379e-0732-436e-880f-062909625cbf&priceBeautifyAB=0

  8. Hello everyone, After recent topics and discussions that I saw on the forum, I think it would be great to get a meet organised, booked and in the diary for 2019. With Christmas coming up, I'm sure a lot of you will be working and/or have ran out of annual leave. Now here comes the difficult part, where to hold it and when to do it. I know as a forum we have people from all over the UK, so I'm thinking of somewhere maybe Midlands area maybe Derby/Nottingham, accessible to motorway routes, giving you guys and girls the best routes without being massively far away. In terms of the meet itself, I'd be apt to have this on a weekend morning, so it doesn't take too much out of peoples day, and it's a lame excuse to grab some breakfast and to have a natter. So the general plan would be, to meet up at a Toby Carvery or the like, meet for say 9.30/10.00 am - have a natter prior to going in to getting some food, then back out after a hearty breakfast for another chat, then away we go. Who would be up for this? Obviously we have a bit of time before it, so it gives enough notice to clear diaries and the like. Answers on a postcard, dependent on the outcome, there will be updates.
  9. I have recently upgraded my 2015 R manual folding mirrors to original electric ones taken off a 2016 R. the mirrors and switch are all original parts, the install was pretty easy and I have successfully got the mirrors working (folding via switch, auto folding when car is locked, demister and reverse dipping etc) The upgraded ones include puddle lights which fail to turn on when folding in or out. I was wondering if anyone else has faced this issue before? I don't have puddle lights on the doors, just a red reflector at the bottom so would this be the cause of the issue or would it be something else? does anyone know the fuse number for the puddle lights?
  10. Hi All, My 2015 R was involved in an accident and the down pipe has been damaged in the process, I've seen a couple of original spares for sale but they are of a 2017 Golf R. I was wondering if anyone has had experience with this before? Do you know if this would be a straight fit? are there and differences i the 2 models etc? Appreciate any help on this Thanks
  11. Hi guys , im new to the forum. I have a mk7 golf r and i am currently running a jb4 with a resonator delete, vwr600 intake , silicone hose and turbo inlet elbow from racingline. I would like to get a downpipe next ,but im not sure as to which would be the best for not throwing any cel lights up. Do you need a sports cat such as the bcs 200cell cat or can you just purchase a a downpipe without the cat. Cheers for any help in advance.
  12. Hi guys, I was wondering if anyone on here would be able to give some advice regarding the maintenance and or repairability of a mk7 golf leather steering wheel. I am the current owner of a mk7 golf r and my steering wheel is beginning to show marks and fade and I'm really struggling to bare with them. Hence the reason for starting this topic. I am aware of leather cleaning kits but it would be nice to get other peoples experiences before going ahead with any purchases. Any help or advice is much appreciated!!

    Hello Guys Lovely to finally be part of the family!! I picked up my 66 Plate R a week ago and its been incredible so far! (Too many smiles from the DSG)! Just wanted to know where is the best place to get a res delete from? and how much work does it take to install it? Thank you in advance! J1
  14. Hi folks, Has anyone replaced their air filter to K&N one and if so is there much difference? Is it worth buying one? Thanks
  15. Hoping someone can help me activate Car-Net on my MK7 GTD! I have just upgraded from the Mib1 (5.8” Discover Nav) headunit to the Mib2 (8” Discover Pro), everything is working fine but I can’t access Car-Net or any of the online features. I’ve tried registering online but my VIN number isn’t accepted, when trying with the VIN number for the head unit (salvaged from GTE so from another VIN) it gives me the activation code but the vehicle rejects this. Is there any way to get around this? I’m just trying to access Google Maps on the navigation, I presume you need Car-Net active for this. Thanks in advance!
  16. Also posted this on the Golf R Scotland Facebook page "SKYFALL" run Glasgow / Central area to Glencoe. Stop at the section where the famous Skyfall picture was taken. Some great roads on this run Sunday 1st July 2018. 0900 meet at Transport museum, Glasgow. Secondary meet point at Lomond Shores Balloch for 0930. Run up A82 Loch Lomond, Crianlarich etc into Glencoe. Stop on the way back at "The Real Food cafe" in Tyndrum for brunch/lunch prior to a return to Glasgow. Not too early a start so folk can still have a Saturday night and not too late a finish so those that have wife / kids / other plans can do so for the Sunday afternoon.
  17. Admin, if this post isn't allowed, apologies and please delete I have noticed a few posts from owners in the Glasgow / other Scottish areas looking to meet. Was wondering who fancied a meet / run? I am proposing a meet and run up the "dukes pass" stop off for lunch and run elsewhere before breaking up. Anyone fancy it? Or propose another meet venue and idea? I'm certainly very flexible!! Initial date to give time to reply and sort days off work etc I thought would be SUNDAY 2nd OCTOBER 2016 That isn't actually that far away! Any thoughts or opinions, please post
  18. Hi folks, I'm undecided on what splitter/skirt/diffuser kit to order for my Mk7R. I've narrowed it down to either the TripleR low line kit or the V2 front splitter, V2 rear side splitters and matching skirt from Maxton. Quality is a big for me as well as the aesthetics of the kit. Has anyone got these kits fitted? If so, please post some photos below to help with my decision. Cheers!
  19. Hi. Choosing engine modification components is relatively straight forward. Choosing new wheels is not! I seem to have spent weeks looking at new wheels for my R, The real stumbling block is offset. I understand what it is, but would love to see comparison images of how they actually look on a vehicle (no spacers, just the wheel). With this in mind, could we start a thread where you post an image of your Mk7/7.5 R and comment the offset you have? If we can gather a few sample images in one place, this would be really informative and help people make the correct choice on which offset they would like to go for. Might be worth making it a sticky on the forum pages. Thanks in advance, Ben
  20. Introduction Good Evening Fellow R owners. I have just created an account after trawling through these forums for a few weeks. I have read through plenty of users posts and I'm amazed by what different people have managed to do to their cars! I'm looking for some guidance as to what modifications to do to my R. I will hopefully become a regular member of the forum 👌 Modifying my R I have a 2014 Manual MK7R and I'm looking into modifications but can't decide on what to go with. I have had my car since Sep 17 and haven't made any modifications to it yet. I would like my car to be faster throughout the rev range, to be more visually aggressive/appealing and to be louder whilst maintaining half decent MPG (for the power of the R). Stage 1/2 - APR or REVO? After reading user posts I'm edging towards APR. My previous car was mapped by REVO but I've heard better things about APR. Is there any pertinent information I should know before deciding this? -Stage 1 or 2? Ideally I would like to go to Stage 1 first and then potentially upgrade to Stage 2. With REVO you can just pay the difference between stages, is this the case with APR? Hardware Upgrades -Although they aren't required, is it recommended to upgrade any components for Stage 1? (IE a clutch uograde for manual transmission) -Short Clutch Stop? Are they worth it? Which would you buy? -Short shifter? Are they worth it? Which would you buy? -Uprated clutch? Is this recommended for even Stage 1? If so, which would you buy? -New intercooler? Which to buy? -New air intake system? Which to buy? Making my car louder -Would a res delete and turbo muffler delete be enough or do I need to either get a downpipe or whole new exhaust system? Are there any recommendations of which of these to get and where from? Visual Appearance -I'm going to get my rear windows 95% or 100% tinted. Could anybody recommend a shade to use or where to get these done? -Is there any modification I could make which would greatly enhance my car visually? Im considering Brembo drilled brake discs and red callipers. THANK YOU for taking the time to read my post! I apologise for how long it is. I would greatly appreciate any advice given. Please feel free to add photos below. I'm from near York and I'm also in Suffolk quite a lot. Any recommendations taking into account my location would be much appreciated. James 😊
  21. Need help to decide on a reasonably priced exhaust for the golf R I had a Milltek on my scirocco which I don’t fancy and I’ve thought about armytrix but can I justify spending so much on it!?
  22. Love this car, had to dechrome it though. Front chrome peices, badges and the wing mirrors. Also did the side r badges. Came out really nice. Car is very dirty though. Wheels will be done soon, can't decide if to go matte or gloss black. Do you reckon matte wheels would look strange against all the gloss?
  23. Hello all, Im going to be updating the sat-nav in my 64 plate R and also the radio station pictures. Can I update the sat-nav from the SD card which is already in the car, provided by VW. Or so I need another SD card (up to 32gb) to update it? On a side note... how do I set a radio station to be either number 1-6. So for example if I want capital radio to be number 2 on the list, how do I keep it there? Thanks in advance.
  24. As some of you might have picked up, Im grabbing a camera with me every now and then to capture some of the mischief I get up to with my car journey. This is the latest one. Let me know what you think...
  25. Evening everyone! So today I took my pride and joy out in the snow, I wasted no time doing so, my neighbor's all thought i was mad, but I had a strong believing my motor would be fine. The following YouTube link is a short clip of me having some fun in my manual R I'd love to see more videos like mine if anyone else has some!
