Hi guys and girls,

As a previous RS6, MK5 GTI owner and currently a jag owner I've been looking at getting a bit more excitement in driving my car.  Having been out in a couple of the new facelift R's they definitely put the grin back on my face.

 

Like the look of the new performance pack don't like the Spielberg wheels I'm told it comes with. 

 

Also can the Akrapovic exhaust be purchased as a dealer fit after purchase, this might help keep the price down.. Top quality but expensive

 

Good to see this is a very active forum. Looking forward to being a part of it.

On the configurator, there's an option for just the titanium exhaust - £2350 - which is a lot!! Strangely, I can't find anywhere else that sells the Akrapovich so it might be a dealer fit only in which case, I wouldn't bother and just go for a decent aftermarket exhaust.

Welcome aboard. If you decide against the Akrapovitch try the BCS Powervalve kit: many recommendations on here from actual users/buyers.  Carey Street awaits!  ;)

Thanks for all the advice. quite a few things to think about.

 

I been in a few test drives and first impressions are very good but need to drive one properly by myself for a couple of hours or longer.

I think you are right. I recall reading something about the Akrapovic being a specific joint development between them and VW.

Update - the Jag has gone and put a deposit on a White pre facelift MK 7. There is a good chance that it might be the car that advertised here and now sold. (not to me at that time)
