Hi, I'd be keen for your thoughts.
I have a Golf R Mk7.5 estate GPF (sleeper) that currently has a Forge inlet, K&N filter, uprated NGK spark plugs / coils and DIY opened inlets on the grille along with a custom DSG and TSU tune from DMS Automotive. Stock was 309 BHP and 450 Nm of Torque at the flywheel. After tune, I'm now getting 378 BHP and 550 Nm of Torque at the flywheel.
Next step in April is the replace anti roll bars and shocks with H&R roll bars and coil overs, SuperPro bushes, Wagner Intercooler, BCS down pipe with sports cat and update the ECU tune.
Whilst I'm doing all this and with the expected power and torque increases, I've decided to upgrade the front brakes. I've already got braided lines and Ferodo pads and VBT J hooked disks. Now I want to go for a Big Brake Kit and was looking at the 362mm two piece floating rotors and cannot decide if I go with 4-pot Brembos for Aston Martin or go for 380mm two piece floating rotors with 6pot calipers from AP racing.
The car will be running the 18" Cadiz for now with spacers (keeping to the sleeper theme) and will not be tracked. However, it is driven quite hard or very hard most of the time.
Any thoughts and logic between 4pot and 6pot would be greatly appreciated.
im looking at modifying my exhaust and I would like to get a decat (want it very loud) but I keep hearing I won’t pass my MOT is there lots of garages which will pass it if I look in the right places?
or will I struggle getting it through it’s MOT?
Thanks in advance 😊
New to the group, I've recently just purchased a Golf R Mk 7.5 (collecting it next week). First time ever owning a VW let alone an R! Have previously owned a Mercedes E300 coupe and a BMW 440i- going to a pocket rocket was a jump as i was always used to coupes!
I'm excited to have fun with the Golf R and I can't wait to pick mine up next week.
Few questions for you guys:
1. What car did you have before your first VW R?
2. What was the first modification you done to your VW R?
3. What is the best thing about owning a VW R?
