    Golf R manual vs DSG long term reliabilty?

    I would expect a thermostat issue that fails in the first 6/72 to be repaired under warranty regardless of your power mods. No?

    2022 Golf R - 315HP 310lb/ft TQ

    Sorry, I reached too high. A Cayman GTS or S is right in line with 50K.

    2022 Golf R - 315HP 310lb/ft TQ

    The biggest issue with comparing a VW Golf to a Porsche is parts. New Rotors/Pads and whatever other items will need to be replaced over the lifespan of the vehicle are exponentially more expensive. That being said a used Cayman GT4 is only 20K more than a brand new 2022 Golf R. When were...

    50,000+ for a golf. Out of control.

    Golf R manual vs DSG long term reliabilty?

    To quote from VWVortex "A shop called Foreign Automotive in Canada has been able to retrofit a lower thrust washer without pulling the engine." It may be worth finding out if shops in the USA can replicate this process. @A2bmotorsport is this something you have looked into?

    Aftermarket option that wont be so harsh on the crank? Sachs? How overblown is this issue?

    used car market ... wtf

    The reality is there is a void for atleast a year before the MK8’s come in. The general opinion about the styling is not positive as well. I bet the MK8.5’s will be the ticket.

    CPO vs used

    Also be careful about people saying a car has warranty. When I was looking at R’s I noticed it came over in auction from Canada. I’m fairly certain the USA VW dealers won’t hold up to the warranty if the original origin is from Canada. Ultimately I went private sale.

    17" Winter Wheel Offsets

    Neuspeed has a sale right now for Black Friday so I went that route. 30-40 more per rim than tirerack options but I know I won’t have an issue.

    17" Winter Wheel Offsets

    They are not hubcentric. Tirerack has no way of calculating this until you ad it to your cart, it will auto-populate rings or not.

    17" Winter Wheel Offsets

    Does anyone know if the Rial Luccas are 57.1 hub centric? I do not want to run plastic ring adapters. Thanks.
