Hello folks, just joined this forum and I am new into the Golf R ownership club! I recently bought a used - 30k miles - Golf R Estate M7.5 and although I saw the interior quirks when checking the car I decided to go ahead with the purchase anyway. 


The stuff that I am talking about is the amount of scratch marks than can be seen on the inside of the rear interior boot trim panel is beyond imagination. These even extend to both sides of the C pillars! I mean, I don’t know what the previous owner was doing, but he must have been transferring large sharp objects constantly banging at the back! And all over the place for that matter. 


My question is: where do I find replacement parts for these panels? I contacted my local VW dealer but I am expecting them to come back with eye watering numbers to get things right. Is there a website that I can trust and order these from?


Finally, the steering wheel at the top has visible wear so any suggestions on how to recondition that (other than those Amazon diy kits!) would be hugely appreciated. 


Many thanks.

      Hey guys,
      I recently bought a MK7 Golf R. I've already had it mapped and am very happy with the figures but I want a little more growl.
      I've been looking into getting a res delete kit, only thing stopping me is all the threads about people complaining about 'unbearable droning' I've been looking into BCS and VAGSport kits both seem to have their ups and downs. I think I am swinging more to the VAGSport kit.
      Anyone had either and have any advice? It would be very appreciated!

      So I'm deciding whether to buy a 2015 MK7 Golf R white for £17,400 with 29k miles (private) OR 'Approved Used' 2015 Lapiz Blue MK7 Golf R for £19,100 with 12k miles.
      The approved used one is from a dealer so it comes with 12 months warranty which I would've bought (extended warranty for a year) so it saves me ~£630.
      All the other MK7 Golf Rs I can see for sale are around £18,000 for 2015 with 30-40k mileage and £19,000 for 2016 models with roughly the same mileage.
      I will be selling the car in a years time so I'm not too sure which one to go for? This might be a dumb Q but does mileage outweigh the reg/production year even if the car is lower mileage than the 2016 higher mileage? I will probably do max 7000 miles in the year. 
      Also, if the Used Approved ones are ex-demos should I avoid them??
      Been looking for quite a while so would appreciate your suggestions- many thanks!
