  1. Hi All, Buying a new Golf R (deposit down, still need to view it), first time every buying a performance car so would really appreciate so guidance! The car is a 2019 Golf R in Indium Grey, 19" Prets, DCC & Progressive steering. Car has covered 18k miles with 2 previous owners, it will be used approved from VW (2yr warranty) and is costing £28.5k. Is this a good buy? I plan on selling it after a year and a half, how much depreciation will I be looking at? Is there any questions I should ask or anything to be warned about please? I want to get a back box delete at some point later as because it has a PPF it sounds quieter and is only 300bhp instead of 310, will this reduction in bhp be THAT noticeable? Also want to get the alloys sprayed black as they look nicer with the grey. Any help or suggestions would be great folks! Thank you
  2. So I bought my 2018 6MT Golf R in November and I'm about ready to start modding it. I've got the funds to take it stage 2 with supporting mods. I'm planning on going EQT stage with IE downpipe, R600 intake, Mishimoto IC with charge pipe kit, southbend stage 3 daily clutch(the stock one is already starting to slip), BFI stage 1 engine and trans mounts, h&r rear sway bar, and fluidampr pulley. Any opinions on these for my choices? I also want to do dogbone and pendulum upgrades but I've been reading that if you do both DVH gets pretty intense. Any suggesting on which to do and what brands? Also would an oil catch can be recommended with this setup? Any other suggestions? I would really appreciate the feedback!
  3. Hello everyone! I bought my 2018 6MT Golf R a few months ago. I'm coming from the Subaru world and is my first time in a Euro car, and I'm loving it! I'm looking to mod soon but I'm unfamiliar with the platform and would really appreciate any input from the more experienced folk.
  4. Hey guys, been on the forum as a browser for a while but thought I'd upload some pics of my Golf. Spec as follows; 2017 (67) plate 3 door Manual DCC digital dash All black half alcatara seats 19" Spielberg wheels Rear windows all tinted Wanted a manual for so long and spent forever hunting this spec, although I wasn't too sure about the spielberg wheels in the beginning but I think they're starting to grow on me! Have taken off all surface contaminants with meguiars wash plus, clay barred the whole car and applied some meguiars liquid spray wax just before winter. Looking to have detailed soon or possibly have a go with the machine polisher myself as there are some swirls from previous owner Any suggestions for upgrades welcome as I want to change a few things without coming away from the oem look..

    Hello there

    Hello there, I've just become a proud owner of my first VW Golf (MK7 GT TDI), looking forward to many years of happy motoring and tweaking.
  6. Joined last Friday finally got some decent weather to wash Her! Apologies I ain’t no photographer 🙄
  7. Hi Everybody! New Golf R Mk7.5 owner here, picking up my new pride and joy on my birthday of all days 21st December can't wait. I've attached a little pic of her to this post. Had a Polo Gti back in 2015 but also had a string of BMW's but decided to move away from the brand following poor residuals and the abundance of arrogant E9x 335d owners claiming a million Bhp off of one remap and the M4 elite who only insult other people's car choices. Looking forward to the Golf R I was very impressed with it on the test drive having driven it back to back against a 2017 Audi RS3 I have to say the Golf was 10k cheaper and decidely as much fun to drive and handled just as well. I have seen a Revo package that claims to give 500bhp without breaking/voiding warranty if anybody else is running it on here would love to pick your brains about it. I am really looking forward to this project as the car will still be a daily driver as well. Really looking forward to the coming year hopefully if you guys do meet and greets will see a few of you about. All the best, Nick
  8. Hi all, New 7.5 R wagon/estate/variant owner from Sydney, Australia here! Picked up my Lapiz Blue 7.5 R Wolfsburg wagon around 2 months ago as I need a bigger family car than my previous Audi S3 sedan. Previous to the S3 I had a MK6 R. Looking forward to learning heaps from you guys and also contributing. Here is a pic of the car after tint and ceramic pro being applied!
  9. Evening All! My name is James from York. I'm new to the forum and have owned a Manual 14 Plate R since last September.

  15. … albeit in Variant/Estate/Wagon form. Kids and dogs, you know! Just a thank you for all I've already been able to "steal" from your informative and pleasant style on these forums. I look forward to contributing once I complete my order and receive my: R Estate Limestone Grey DCC Nav 18" Cadiz (17" Dijon for winter) Cloth seats Pano roof Dynaudio Sound System Might start with some options & negotiation questions before that! FYI. I'm based in Luxembourg, Europe. Previously/currently Audi A4 Avant TFSI Quattro S (200 bhp, S-Line) & Audi A1 owner. Over and out.
  16. Hi All, I thought I ought to say hi! After probably two years looking at cars of various types I decided that a Golf R really made the most sense for me, as a car that does everything I don't think you can do better. I currently drive a modified mk1 Octavia vRS which really is a great all-rounder but it's getting to that age when a couple of things are starting to play up and I'm at an age where I can look at something newer/nicer. So I've ordered myself a Golf R estate, I keep changing my mind on colour, the original order was for Tornado Red but then I changed to White, now I keep seeing other sexy colours and thinking I like those more, I think it's probably just a case of "grass is greener" + excitement about getting the car - I'm sad that you can't get the estate with 90% tints but I think window shades or professional tints will fix that easily enough. The custom seems to be to share the spec so here goes: * Golf R Estate, White [at the moment] * Panoramic Roof * Vienna Leather * Reversing Camera * Dynaudio I went for the 18" wheels because parking/navigating on my road normally means mounting the curb, a bit of extra rubber over the 19" is useful here. I also went for a couple of accessories - the dog guard and the boot-lip protection both in aid of trying to keep the car nice for the future I put the order in a couple of weeks ago but haven't yet had any information regarding tracking/build weeks. The dealer told me it'd be a couple of weeks before they had that info and I was looking at an October-ish (Maybe November!) date. I think I've read every review and watched every video on youtube regarding stock Golf R's - so for now I'll keep myself busy by hanging out here on the forums!
  17. Hey all picked up my new R start of the week and have had two short trips in her and *loving* the experience so far. Been slammed at work all week so only getting out for a longer drive with the younglings and missus for the first time today. Looking forward to the craic in here and getting some gen too...I've been a longtime Audi user but switched after their diabolical service trying to source an S3. Glad I did! Cheers
  18. Hi all I'm thinking about buying a golf. I've been on the hunt for a new car and seen a few type r's and 4 golf r's so far but I'm already swaying towards the golf altho I had to rule the civic out as my lanky legs just don't fit lol. I'm just wondering what to look out for altho these cars are not long out so can't see there being any issues really. I'm also curious what specs are out there. I'm wanting dsg, leather, sunroof and a good entertainment system. Are all stereos in the golf the same or are there sum better than others?? Any help would be much appreciated Sean
