Nice car. Hope you’ve got a decent immobiliser fitted.

Thanks.

 

Thats something i am looking into. It's on a PCP so i don't know what i am ok to do with it but i will probably be keeping it after the 3rd year so i wouldn't mind it having one. Its not the keyless entry and i live in a safe area with lots of CCTV on my house and neighbours so i have that at least.

 

Had a look at the ghost one they look really good. What do you have fitted?

I have ghost. Most thefts are due to house burglary where they come looking for the keys and just drive off.

I was concerned about car jacking which ghost has an option for but it’s not officially for the uk not sure why.

I had the anti car jacking option turned on by my installer. Another must have is dash cams front and back. 
I had a mini cab driver run into the back of me at very low speed in icy conditions a few years back.

First thing i did was put my dash cams into it. I have a front and rear nextbase. So many complete idiots on the road and they will blame you when they are completely at fault.

 

Its always "you have a sporty car you were driving like your on a race track" when really i am driving super careful like a granny because i don't want to hurt my baby haha

Welcome to VWROC!  
 

:welcome:

 

Car looks fantastic!  Great that you’ve finally got one and I hope it’s living up to, and even exceeding expectation.  Enjoy the forum too, lots of great information, help and ideas on here. 

Thanks.

 

Yes the car is bonkers i love it so much. Its totally exceeding my expectation and then some. Love everything about it from the power to the headunit (256gb sdxc card full of music hell yeah).

 

Also the seats are so much better than other golfs now i don't get Golf Ball anymore

Hi, I've just gone to the R from a GTI Performance, however I'm still waiting for the R. 

Go with the Ghost and disklock.

Have you gone for the Mk8 then? I deliberately didn't try and get one to test drive because if the money. I would of been living in one if i got it .

Very nice. What extras did you get with it and what colour did you go for?

 

Super jealous but in a good way, when is it due?
