Assuming there is a 3-8k repair bill lurking somewhere in the ownership (Haldex/dsg/engine failure), if the seller could be talked down to 36k its not a bad deal. But when dealers are already struggling to sell new ones, I'd say a fair price is closer to 31k .
Sellers gotta understand that mods...
Personally, I dont think this is the car for a really big guy. It's still a compact at the end of the day.
Much better suited to a gently used Porsche Panamera, Audi SQ5, Porsche Macan, or Audi S7. If looking in the similar family and feel of cars.
These are not prude Suzy homemaker cars. They are kinky mistresses like to be spanked and driven hard. They want a man who puts his foot down and tells her what to do. If you are wishy washy, it will try to guess whether you are slowing down or speeding up.
I would say get a dsg tune but if...
I think the 50k Golf RS is what all the enthusiast want. I would settle for a used RS3 sportback after 2 years depreciation. if no one buys the RS6, audi probably wont bring many more rs models over the pond . Maybe they will depreciate fast

If you have a lot of rain, sleet, snow, etc- I'd say drop it to 20k
If you do launches all the time - 15 to 20k probably. people have had them fail.
I have little to no precipitation and my filter was clean at 20k.

At last. Welcome OP...
I imagine that right now you're feeling a bit like Alice, tumbling down the rabbit hole? I can see it in your post. you have the look of a poster who accepts his lack of warranty because he is expecting to have fun. Ironically, this is not far from the truth.
I'm currently running:
APR Stage 2 software
Eventuri Intake System
APR turbo inlet elbow
PS4S tires on Pretoria
What do you guys think I should go with next for more fun
I'm considering :
Rear Sway bar
Turbo upgrade... (I don't want to...
Can anyone help me?
I have the worst luck. I went to install my S2T paddles for a Golf R and I dropped the left pin and cannot find it anywhere. I've done everything short of removing the seat to find it. Anyone know if I can order the pivot pin without the whole assembly?
Thanks in advance.
The latest Software revision by VW actually changed the Box Code on my MY17 Golf R.
I guess its a new one and APR needs to access an ECU at their shop in Alabama to write the new tune. So if anyone still does warranty services at the dealer, i suggest you specify you don't want them to flash...
