    Can JB4 used for 2018 GTI work for 2018 Golf R?

    Same unit. I think they stated in the past that they have the different vehicle options because they like to track which platform the units are being ordered for.

    Good Golf R Deals ATM

    Rumor I heard was the VW USA ordered enough Rs at the end of 2019 to meet 2020 demand. Hoping its true because I'll be in the market for one around May/June. There are about 800 new ones on cars.com which is about 25% of what they sold in 2018.

    Golf R versus Tesla model 3.

    If you buy before year end you also get the $7500 tax credit, bringing the prices closer still. Makes the Model 3 performance a no brainer if you were cross shopping against say an s3 which is probably more likely in the real world.

    Golf R versus Tesla model 3.

    My buddy has a model 3 performance getting delivered next week. Hopefully I'm back in an R this spring and then I'll get some good dash cam shots of the back of a model 3 to share

    GTI vs Cayman S (shitty dashcam vid warning)

    First model year for 981 production was 2014, at least in the us. He ran a 987 (06-12), probably an earlier one based on the lobster claws and the fact that they made almost no 2012 cars (99% of them were 2006-2011). The 06-11 were 13.3 @106. From the porsche forums: Cayman S production...

    GTI vs Cayman S (shitty dashcam vid warning)

    You sure thats a 987 S? They were rated 320 HP in 2012. The R was 330. There were no 987s with 325. https://www.cars.com/articles/2012-porsche-cayman-whats-new-1420685670632/ Under the Hood The base engine is a 265-hp, 2.9-liter horizontally opposed six-cylinder. The 3.4-liter six-cylinder in...

    Power depends on the year. road and track got 13.3 @ 106 out of the 987 Cayman S in 2006. 295 hp. 2012s got a bigger motor but were still 13 second cars. 320 hp

    Has anyone traded in a tuned Golf R?

    Good grief. VW dealers have access to this software. All of them. It was not a used car lot, not a Toyota dealership, not Mary a single mother of 3. Was the information regarding the tune accessible to the buyer of my car? Yes.

    Has anyone traded in a tuned Golf R?

    :rolleyes: There was no failure to disclose because there was no duty to disclose. Trying to argue that YOU intentionally traded a car that YOU drove to the point the tires were bald and needed to be replaced, devaluing the car due to the cost and labor of replacement parts AND your argument...

    Has anyone traded in a tuned Golf R?

    I didn’t say they had to check the flash counter, I said they had the ability to check if they so chose. Just like they have the ability to check for bald tires, worn brakes etc. Nothing requires they check any of those things before buying a car. Fraud by omission in my state only applies to...

    Has anyone traded in a tuned Golf R?

    It wasn't entirely irrelevant. The basis for part of his argument about what is kosher to not tell a dealer (worn brakes etc) centered around them being expected and inspectable. A tune is clearly inspectable and who knows how he defines "expected" but the fact that vw mandates scans prior to...

    Exhaust without DSG Farts

    Resonator delete sounds nice and is cheap. Really liked the sound on mine.
