Hi all picked up my 19 plate Golf R DSG today ,moved on from Focus Rs Edition and in the short 50 mile trip i am well impressed with the build quality and performance.No doubt I’ll have questions in the coming days and weeks ahead just bear with another newbie.it’s a bit of a step up from my first golf  mk1 gti but it was an early one called power something can’t quite remember at it was 1982.

Welcome to the forum, what’s your initial thoughts, better or worse than the Focus RS?

Well the quality is miles better than the RS and the Golf will stay in a straight line under hard acceleration from 0-80 as the torque vectoring on RS made the car veer from side to side unless on billiard flat road so I,m happy to get rid of the veering steering as it’s called.It will take time to get the seat in the right place so I’m comfortable and the only niggle so far is the stop/start is too eager to cut the engine at every stop,currently turning it off when starting up,But I’ve read it can be  permanently turned off although don’t think there’s anyone in Leicester with the kit to do it.

It’s a 19 plate pure white with Pretoria gloss black wheels ,Programable suspension settings,Dynaudio,sadly no reverse camera- on doing some research will cost £500 and looks a right faff to install,it’s a shame the cables weren’t fitted when built and they just left the camera off for an easy upgrade.
