Figured I'd show a quick snap of the courtesy car, and bring som dire grey to the lovely colours in this thread :P @Booth11


2.0 TSI 190hp DSG R-Line in the lovely Moonstone Grey.

17" 'Valencia' wheels.

Can't wait to have my own in Lapiz Blue.



Not a bad courtesy car to have till the real thing arrives, and it does bring a certain ‘greyness’ to the thread, lol.  But that rear end is awful compared to the R hatch rear, looks like someone’s gone into the back of it and dented the hatch, weird design.  Looks forward to seeing your Lapiz in its place!

Personally I like the grey’s (I’m also).
Is it 4motion or FWD ?



But the XDS differential actually does a pretty good job. Also progressive steering which is standard on the R-Line is fantastic.

On rural roads (B-Roads?) when you get on the gas halfway through corners, it actually tucks in nicely and feels a lot like a 4WD car. Grippy tyres obviously help.

Carwow ask me to borrow it for them to do an drag race against two other cars… can’t really say more then that… I’m not sure when the video is coming out

Be interesting to see just as long as he doesn't do it against some daft overpowered vehicles. 

He did race an R against an M3 Competition which was a bit pointless, ....I mean it was interesting to see just how fast the M3 Competition was in comparison but still 500Bhp versus 300Bhp drag race was only ever going to be one result really.

Interesting … which parts did you add to it
and which did you get from the factory ?

Those wheels!  I might need to take my black/diamond cut to the powdercoater


If im not mistanken, those look like 18” reps as well. 
They still really suit the car, 18s are max size for me. 

Are they from CMwheels?

The car was an ex demo but having not bought a car for 20 years I was disappointed I hadn’t gone for the R so set about hunting parts down to improve its styling. The parts are a mix of

official vw parts - r brakes. Piano black bumper trim, side skirts abs rear sloiker

oettinger front splitter and rear diffuser

Supersprint exhaust

eibach lowering springs 

Ali express mirror caps
