WoW crash in Sheffield hope this is nobody on here, whilst looking for this I searched Morrisons vans and there's been dozens of them going over appears to be a very unstable van but worse this car will need a front bumper and given all the bumper thefts in this area I'll have to hide my car at work this week 😟
Been thinking for a while now about smoking out the chrome on my red R but I haven’t seen annnorher examples online, anyone done this yet?
Im not a fan of the fully dechrome blacked out look.
My only worry is the chrome stripe that carry’s in through the headlight will looks misplaced next to the smoked center grill, not sure if it’s accessible to wrap it??
So i finally received my factory ordered Golf R yesterday and have been loving every minute of it 😀.
But since yesterday, i thought there was something about the front of my car which looked different but couldn't quite put my finger on it. it finally dawned on me that the front bumper may not be a R bumper but in fact an R-line bumper!
The chrome detailing on the air vent (which looks nice IMO) was one indicator that suggested this difference. Another thing i noticed was the engine used to take quite a while to cool down but i though this was common. Because of the long time it took for the engine bay to cool down, i looked at the air vents and realised that they were fake! i was thinking this was detrimental for the engine and may impede airflow. Another difference was this bumper had a sort of honeycomb effect on grille where else a R bumper had a straight lower centre grille.
I do believe that i have the wrong bumper on the car, as other 2018 models does seem to have a different R bumper. i couldn't believe this as i have always thought the germans car manufacturers had strict quality control especially a large company like VAG.
I'm not sure what my position is, in regards to the car and what steps i should take going forwards. I waited since over three months for this car and would be a bummer to not finally enjoy it due to a possible error. What do you guys think of the R/R-line hybrid? 😅
I'm going to attempt to wrap the circular chrome collar around the VW badge.
Could somebody recommended a decent quality vinyl if you have done any wrapping?
I have no idea what the differences are and if i'm just wasting money buying a more expensive product.
Any ebay links would be appreciated if you have them?
