Evening folks, Just home from picking up the new car, looking forward to learning some tips from you guys n girls. Going great so far! Coming from an Bmw M240 is was worried it wouldnt quite 'be enough' but its a totally different beast. The way it corners and launches.... makes me smile from ear to ear. Couple of pics while clean!
Hey guys! New to the group, I've recently just purchased a Golf R Mk 7.5 (collecting it next week). First time ever owning a VW let alone an R! Have previously owned a Mercedes E300 coupe and a BMW 440i- going to a pocket rocket was a jump as i was always used to coupes! I'm excited to have fun with the Golf R and I can't wait to pick mine up next week. Few questions for you guys: 1. What car did you have before your first VW R? 2. What was the first modification you done to your VW R? 3. What is the best thing about owning a VW R?
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
My pcp on the Golf R is coming to an end but I am still very undecided what to buy next. There's a few issues I'm finding, insurance for similar cars seem to be far more expensive and also the 40k list price Tax issue, id really like to avoid paying £500 road tax. These are the options I have considered, all options based on a 4 year PCP 10k miles and 4k deposit. RS3 - £520 pm high tax S4 - £450 pm high tax 140i shadow edition - £350 pm S3 - £380 pm 435d - £420pm high tax. C43 AMG £680 pm high tax I currently pay 380 pm on the Golf and roughly 170 pm on fuel, whilst I have no issues paying more I want to make a sensible-ish decision. If im paying 500 pm on a car, 300 on fuel, 500 on tax and 2 grand on insurance the monthly bill would be more than my mortgage. My insurance currently costs me £450 per year, I'm 26. Out of the above options the cheapest to insure is the S4 at only 650. The S3 is over double my Golf R and the RS3 is quadruple. I was tempted to go for a fully loaded S3 but it's not worth the insurance premium jump. I've not added the A45 due to not being able to order from new and the new varient will probably be 50k. I'm really not interested in sticking with vw, had a bad experience this time round and want to get away from them. Anyone have any suggestions ??
