I hit a Pheasant yesterday and it's dented and creased my bonnet so I thought that I'd hop on here and see if any one has one for sale? My car is 2014 and Lapiz blue. The rest of the car is fine it's just the bonnet that I'm looking for. If anyone knows anyone breaking a car and has one that would be awesome.
Not sure this car needs much introduction on here, but if you're not familiar - please read the project thread
If you are a proper driver, and looking for a seriously f***g fast car, that handles as well as it goes... this is for you.
I bought this car with the objective of creating a true 4WD drivers car, inspired by the crazy Group B rally era.
I did my research and found a car with a great factory spec, a rarity on these, including:
• Satellite Navigation
• Carbon Nappa Leather Heated Seats
• Rear Parking Camera
• Panoramic Sunroof
• Adaptive Xenon Lights (turn with the steering wheel)
• Automatic Dimming Beams
• ...And more
The car was originally purchased in April 2016 on only 13,000 miles with 1 previous owner. So a great starting block to create my ultimate car...
Fast forward a month and the car was remapped using APR Stage 1 software, giving it a respectable 360hp and 360lbft. The car ran an updated Organic clutch at this point, but soon found out that this wouldn't hold the torque. At this point I had also added huge Brembo 8 pot calipers and 365mm discs, Team Dynamics Pro Race wheels, VWR Springs which were later sold and upgraded.
A month or two further in, and the car was updated with Stage 2 software and made a respectable 390hp and 420lbft with bolt ons (intercooler, downpipe, exhaust, intake, DV+, plugs, map). Whilst the car was in, we also fitted a Sachs 6 puk paddle clutch to hold the additional torque.
In October 2016, the opportunity to push the limits on this car came my way. VRS Performance and Turbo Technics worked together to produce a 550HP hybrid 'V2' turbo and the car went in for a full fat Stage 3 package and came out with a very respectable 560HP and 550LBFT. This was huge in the MQB tuning community and the car made headlines everywhere. People were definitely shocked at the capability of these cars and it sparked massive interest in the hybrid turbo market. The reason you see a lot of tuned R's knocking around today is partly down to the money I spent on development and the popularity this car had all over social media. Once again we had to make some further hardware changes - for example we had to once again upgrade the clutch to a Sachs 4-puk paddle to hold the huge torque figures.
We also looked at the chassis and handling of the car, so it was upgraded with a catalogue of parts, including 3 way adjustable Cup coilovers (can be adjusted track side with no tools), camber plates, drop links, every uprated mount and bush, roll bars, and sticky Yokohama AD08Rs... and boy did the car handle. It was difficult to find the limits on UK roads.
I ran the car at this spec for 18 months and 20,000 miles. It was the ultimate daily driven car, still giving that refinement but went like an absolute rocket ship. Servicing was every 4-5k max and was meticulously maintained.
Fast forward to June 2017 and it was time to up the ante. We specced an engine and wanted to push the boundaries once again. After a lot of discussion the car went in for a full engine build in late 2017 with the aim of a reliable 650hp. We used only the best engine parts and engine builders, and by May 2018 the car was built and back on the road, with some great new upgrades such as Alcon 380mm brakes and new lightweight OZ Ultraleggera HLT wheels.
It was revealed at Coventry Motofest 2018 as a demo car, albeit on a running in map! I ran her in myself over 800 miles, all different roads, scenarios and explored the rev range somewhat to ensure she was properly run in for the boost to be unleashed.
VRS and MRC worked together to create a custom fuel system to work with the turbo, which took nearly 6 months to perfect. After some fine tuning and plenty of discussion, the car made a whopping…
822NM (or 610lbft)
The way this car comes on boost and propels you down the tarmac is something to be believed - and being a manual, the power delivery is unlike any other Golf R out there today.
A true 200mph monster.

I have over £40,000 invested in this car over the last 3 years, and have invoices totalling over nearly £35,000 at one independent specialist alone which will be supplied upon viewing.
Another £10,00+ has been spent on brakes, wheels, custom exhaust setup
and other parts.
The engine has done 8,000 faultless miles since the build and has been serviced no more than every 2,000 miles with genuine oil and filters.
The car has MOT until May 2020.
Hey guys, completely new to this.
I have a 2015 7R currently running a custom Racingline stage 1 map and a Res delete, I wanna go that extra bit louder with the decat now.
Been scouring online for days about all this talk about stage 2 which I really don’t want, I’m happy with the power - I just want the noise.
I spoke to my tuner who is urging me to get stage 2 for £500 and then intakes etc which I really don’t want, he isn’t really giving me the option to “alter” my current map to support the decat.
What can I do to get around this? Are their any other reputable companies that could alter my map for a decent price?
If not I’m looking into just getting a custom backbox delete to make things simpler, but I’m not 100% on the sound. Any recommendations/suggestions? Thank you!!
