    4th Gear Lag - APR Stage II MK7R

    90% sure it is any time I go from 3 -> 4. I haven't noticed the ambient temperature playing a factor. I got my car tuned back in June. So I've seen this problem in temperature ranges from 50F-90F. I'll keep a closer eye on that.

    Golfare’s 2016 Golf R 6MT Lapiz Blue

    Do not buy the splitter/lip shown above if you like to drive fast. I bought two; the first broke on the highway using the screws they provide after running it for several months. I liked the way it looked so I ordered another and waited 2+ months. The screws were upgraded to #14 SS screws with...

    4th Gear Lag - APR Stage II MK7R

    APR support just asked me the same thing. I will try. Going to try to bust out the gopro this weekend and get footage.

    That sounds like it could be the case. Thanks for the suggestion.

    4th Gear Lag - APR Stage II MK7R

    Going to try to explain the issue I'm having after flashing APR Stage 2 tune on my MK7R 6MT after my tuner said they could no longer support me: -1st-3rd gear shifts and launches work great, car pulls hard, I'm happy. -Upon entering 4th gear after a redline shift out of third gear, the turbo...

    Summer tires

    Honestly liked the stock tires when I had them last summer with the car. My highway miles chewed through them but the backroads are fun

    Golfare’s 2016 Golf R 6MT Lapiz Blue

    New Ebay front splitter + VW671 LegitSpeedDesigns license plate mount + vanity plate RRRRR + wheels (very dirty here). The splitter was very easy to install with 2 sets of hands and some masking tape to hold temporarily while you use the provided screws. The splitter came in three prices which...

    Downpipe install: drive shaft won't release

    Great! Isn't it your goal to shoot flames though? ?

    Downpipe install: drive shaft won't release

    I was able to separate the driveshaft by wedging a flat head screwdriver into the flange mating surface and by prying lightly.

    Connecticut - Who has a Golf R with a performance exhaust?

    So I'm a month-long owner of my MK7 Golf R 6MT and I'm totally lost in terms of upgrading the stock exhaust. I want more sound. I do a lot of highway driving at 60-70 mph. In short, I would like to hear your car if you live in the shoreline CT or Hartford CT area. I'd open to hearing anything...

    Golfare’s 2016 Golf R 6MT Lapiz Blue

    Welcome to the Golfare (Golf-are, get it?) build thread. I picked this car up on July 1, 2019 from a Bentley / Lamborghini dealership, oddly enough. It’s a 2016 (MK7) Golf R in Lapiz Blue with the manual (6 speed). Driving this car home from the dealership was the first time I had ever...
