  1. 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?
  2. Can anyone help? I've just had 13mm front & 16mm rear spacers fitted to my Golf R. I currently run 18inch Pret's from VW. Can anyone recommend springs to fit to this setup? I'm looking at 15mm Eibachs, to avoid rub but to reduce the arch gap.
  3. It’s here… After many years speculation about what the next full-fat R model was going to be, it’s here and it’s a….drum roll…..it’s an SUV?! For years the chat has reigned supreme on this topic at VWROC.com. First it was all about the WRC winning Polo, and whether that would homologate into a proper VW R. No is the short answer. In subsequent interviews VW clarified that the ethos of the R brand is speed AND 4 wheel drive. The Polo just doesn’t have the capability (currently) to take onboard the Haldex system. Then there was the Golf R400, or R420 depending on which tea leaf brand you were attempting to read the future with. That of course was hit by the VW Dieselgate scandal and pulled. Although again VW’s Jost Capitio recently elaborated that they just didn’t think they had the market for the R400, and as a result of their extensive research, of which this forum took a lead role (shame on those that responded), customers only wanted about 300BHP in the sub €50,000 (£42,000) bracket. He reckoned that by busting those figures, not only would the R400 be too costly to own and run, but that it would have meant losing half of their sales volume. So, to the Geneva Motor show. We knew that the T-Roc R was a possibility. We’d seen the sketches and even seen images of it testing at the Nurburgring, but we’d also seen R400 mules, and they came to nothing. So I have to say we were all a little surprised and delighted when it was actually launched this week at the motor show. I was sceptical at first about the whole concept, but after reading all the reviews and watching all the videos, my mind has been changed. I like this SUV. Apparently, according to Jost Capito, it drives better than the Golf R. They really have worked their magic on the chassis, handling and drive train and although it cannot overcome the sheer physics of its stance, it does perform really well. Only nine seconds slower than the Golf R hatch around the ring is not bad. I feel that this plucky little sports SUV has the chutzpah to take on and beat BMW and Audi at their equivalent attempts. This could well be the class leader, just like your very own Golf R’s when stuck up against the Audi S3. Time will tell. Order books are likely to open soon, and it could be arriving on our shores in the late autumn. I won’t go into all the detail here, we’ve created a section full of news, videos and reviews by other more professional journalists, so please enjoy and carry on the debate here. We’ve also added an Official Order Thread…I wonder which VWROC member will be the first to add their details…. View full article

  5. Just picked up my 2014 MK7 R in Tornado Red. It’s a 5door DSG with Vienna Leather and sitting on VWR springs.
  6. I’m on the verge of purchasing Eibach Pro Springs for my 7R but I don’t think I like the idea of spacers 😔 Atheistically they look great but I can’t help but think of the negative aspects regarding the mechanics of the car. Has anyone lowered their car with Prets on, without spacers? Preferably on Eibach’s but I’ll take any examples. Picture would be appreciated!
  7. Hello VW R fans and owners! Our company, Interstate, is working directly with Jost Capito and the team at Volkswagen R GmbH. You may or may not know that Volkswagen R is actually a separate company to the main Volkswagen brand and we are looking to build a group that has an ongoing involvement and voice that is heard within the brand. Rather than blanket bomb a tonne of Volkswagen owners as is often the case with 'market research', Jost and the team would like us to talk directly to current VW R owners about their VW R, the experience with Volkswagen and most importantly the VW R brand - how it is currently and where we could take it in the future. So, what do we need? 10 x UK based VW R owners 10 x USA based VW R owners Your time, more specifically about 30 minutes of your time - either in person, if you are local to London or Los Angeles or over Skype / a call. What will we do? Ask you some questions, your opinion on various VW R things and get to know you a bit better. What do you get? Remuneration for your time (£/$). Ongoing involvement as part of a development in the VW R Brand. Your voice and comments heard by the senior team at Volkswagen R GmbH. How do you do it? Contact me, Ken at [email protected] and we can arrange a time to chat with the awesome team at Interstate UK or LA. Your data will not be used for marketing spam or passed on anywhere outside of VW R GmbH. Many thanks to the team at VWROC.com for allowing us to talk to you guys direct. Ken
  8. Closed airbox intakes are okay if you want to keep the sound low, but what options are there if you want more drama, an aggressive intake roar? In-step Integrated Engineering, IE have created a Cold Air Intake with all of the ingredients which create a quite frankly ridiculous intake sound, whilst looking great and delivering performance gains which exceed much of the competition! IE does this by incorporating a range of market leading features, such as a huge 3 inch intake pipe going down to the turbo elbow and 5 inch filter mounted to a velocity stack. These three features help to produce an intake which flows around 17% better than stock. All of this sits beautifully in the engine bay thanks to the supplied stealth coolant hose which relocates the stock one to under the intake, rather than sitting unsightly on top. The filter is protected from the engine bay heat thanks to a custom heat shield. Checkout the incredible sound in this video above! Dyno Verified Performance Gains: So what does 17% increase in flow actually mean? Well, the IE intake delivers performance gains right across the rev range up until the rev limiter with maximum gains of a huge 15hp and 20lbfts. Checkout the graph below to see these detailed. Dotted Lines = Stock car + APR Stage 1 ECU & DSG Solid Lines = Above + IE Cold Air Intake Integrated Engineering Intakes are held in-stock and ready to ship, both in open and Carbon forms. These fit MQB chassis vehicles such as the MK7 Golf GTI, MK7 Golf R, 8V S3 and more! Further Info & Purchase Links IE Open Cold Air Intake IE Carbon Cold Air Intake What do you think?
  9. I'm about to get a Golf R so one of the questions is should I get the Pretoria wheels? I love their looks but if I'll drop in a BBK and I'll end up replacing them with ultraleggeras or something aftermarket it doesn't makes sense to spend the extra money twice. Spacers I will not run. So it all boils down to: - Alcons - VWR - any other respectable bbk bbks fitment behind them without spacers.
  10. That's right! Racingline, formally Volkswagen Racing is now available at Regal Autosport. Racingline have developed a wide range of market leading performance product for the Golf 6R and 7R. Including Air Intakes, Suspension, Wheels and Intercoolers. What makes Racingline different?

There's no better reassurance than that. FULL TUNING SOLUTION Nobody offers the full-range of upgrades for your Volkswagen Group car that we do. We believe that improving a car is all about matching power increases with dynamic improvements with safety reassurance. All developed and matched from under one roof. OEM STANDARDS RacingLine has cultivated relationships with OEM suppliers for years through motorsport and by providing valuable Tier 1 services to various OEM’s ourselves. This has given Racingline unique access to the same engineering teams and supplier engineering firms used by the manufacturer of your vehicle.

MODEL SPECIFIC Unlike many aftermarket tuners, we develop our parts specifically for Volkswagen Group products. It's what we know, it's what we love, and it's what 15 years of experience brings together. So rather than generic parts adapted to VWG, our Performance Programme is conceived specifically for them.

  13. Hi all, First time VWROC forum user from Australia. Had my pure white, DSG, R for 6 months now & approaching 10,000 km. Loving (nearly) all aspects of it. More refined & powerful than my previous ride - a Renaultsport Clio RS 200. Keen for some subtle mods given this is my daily driver. Lowering springs are first. I require a maximum 20mm drop & a slight increase in spring rate to remove pitch & roll without ruining ride & importantly to work well with stock dampers. Currently running 19's which are standard with Australian delivery cars. Have narrowed it down to the following options: VWR, H&R OE Sport, ST Sport (Suspension Techniques). Obviously plenty of info & reviews on the VWR springs but has anyone had experience with the other two? Especially difficult to find reviews for ST springs. Given that ST make apparently great coilovers (& are are made by KW) would have thought that the quality is excellent but no info that I can find apart from their site. I did notice that someone posted a question on this forum a while back on ST springs but got no response. My workshop deals in H&R & ST but not VWR/Racingline so keen to branch out from the VWR norm if the quality is there. Any thoughts greatly appreciated! jarama
