    Golf R Lasted 3 Months - Attempted Robbery

    Thought I'd share with the users of the forum. Back in March 2014 I placed my order for an R DSG which arrived in September. I managed to drive it for 2500 miles in the 3 months I had it. The Monday before Christmas 4 men wearing hoodies and gloves ran down my drive and booted the front door...

    Golf R DSG - could do with a 7th gear

    Doing my first proper motorway run today noticed the car was doing 2500rpm at 70mph. The car seems to eat the gears and before you know it you're in 6th - even at slow speeds. Admittance there has been times the car has been hovering on 5th and rpm should be enough to move to 6th so knocked...

    DIY Fabric Protection Anyone?

    Has anyone applied a Scotch Gard protector to their fabric seats in the car? I know you can get dealer protection done which is probably the same stuff. My car arrives T minus 3 days; I have two under 10s and when I've relaxed a little about snacks etc being taken into the car I wanted to make...

    Boot Dimensions for a boot protector

    I've seen a few items listed on 8bay and was looking at this one for my R in particular. It says it's top level (so assume if you didn't drop the boot cover down which I don't think you can in the R anyway like you can in a GTI etc). The seller asked me this; Thanks for getting in touch. I'm...

    Shiny new R - would you leave at a dealer?

    So when you get your car and it has to have a service etc would you leave the car with the dealer? Would you tell them not to clean your car even though it's part of the service?

    Does Fuel 'RON' Make A Difference?

    I'm getting an R in a few months, is there any hard and fast answer for what type of petrol I use? If I use 95 RON it's obviously less potent than a 98, would it damage the engine or just reduce power? I think the RON for an R is recommended to 99 but my local garages only do up to 98, is 1...
