  1. 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

  3. Just picked up my 2014 MK7 R in Tornado Red. It’s a 5door DSG with Vienna Leather and sitting on VWR springs.
  4. 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!
  5. 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
  6. 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.

  9. 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
