Think the front end is growing on me,never thought I would say that.

 

How you liking the Lapiz?


I adore the Lapiz.  It’s a stunning colour.  But you know that already. 😁  And I think it really suits the 8R.  It looks fresh and modern and works so well with the design.  Anyone who thinks it looks dated is talking out of their @**e  (imo of course). 


Likewise.  I never thought I’d say this, but after the sexy rear, the front end is my favourite view of the car.

I think that might be me.  To my mind, it never looks as good in the flesh as it does in photos, such as yours at the fuel pump.  Weirdly, the interiors you shoot always come out as grey when we know it's black.  As a serious photographer, I'll hazard it's a mobile phone (which I don't own btw) and not a camera . . . (imo of course).😉

That comment was a bit of in joke in ref to something else, not at you Jagman.  😊  But everyone’s entitled to their own views and so it should be.  I personally think Lapiz looks fantastic in the flesh as well as in photos.  Yes it’s just a phone camera pic as were the interior shots.  I have DSLR (Canon 5D mkIV) and other cameras, but don’t get time to do much hobby photography these days so phone camera gets used for most quick snaps now.  But.....the interior of the mk8R isn’t black, not to my eyes anyway.  Despite the VW descriptions/naming and darkness of the interior in promotional photos, in reality it appears more grey.  Was a bit of a surprise to me at first as I was expecting a darker interior but I think it’s very grey, a darkish grey, including the trim (piano black gloss aside) and the leather seats.  So phone camera not guilty I don’t think.  Maybe it’s personal colour perception, but I’m usually pretty good judging colour, have a degree in fine art (painting) so don’t think I’m imagining it.

I was really against buying an 8R at first, but seeing your photos is changing my mind. It looks great in Lapiz too. 

 

Although I did see the Tiguan R at the dealer yesterday when my car was in for a service, that also looks gorgeous. Going to be a hard choice on what I do.....

Thanks.  It’s a better looking car in the flesh than in pics.  And definitely a grower. That is a difficult choice between Golf R and Tiguan R (which does look fab), guess it depends on what the relative benefits of each would bring to your wants and needs.  Tough one!

I think the Lapiz helps, which is one of the best car colours around. Period.

Still not convinced about the front, but definitely looks better than in white.

Looks excellent @Dannybear83!   The DBP is stunning.  
 

How are you finding the car?  Hope you’re enjoying it.

I love it so far, 

Power is nice 

seats are comfortable 

the tech is amazing 

The exhaust sounds good “in race mode”

The standard speakers are good enough for me 

 

Dislikes

The attention is a lil bit annoying.

the “we connect” app keeps disabling in the car 🤷🏾‍♂️.
