Not really....basic & VERY heavy!Beefy brakes
Oh I'm sure they will. Along with a non-leaking water pump/tstat housing. They'll definitely sort those issues by MK8, right guys?
Be careful what you ask for. My M Coupe sliding, two piston calipers worked so much better than the Brembo six piston fixed calipers on our 135i. I have no problem with sliders if you have good fluid, pads and the car isn't a fat pig.Although they still appear to be sliding piston calipers.
I never owned a Mk6, but I've owned two Mk7 and I still think the Mk6 is better looking. The shoulder line just looks better than the slab side. And the Mk8 is getting it back, so I'm good, I'll get one soon enough, and if they've upgraded the stock clutch, I'll get one as soon as possible.Every time there is a new model of any car, the enthusiasts from the previous gens always say the same shit...lol
It's not going to age well, though. It's shaped like a Volkswagen, but if I pulled that badge off and called it a Hyundai... Face it; nobody would know the difference. It's excitingly bland.First, thanks MIKE PP for the post.
I've said this before, but (IMHO) it's worth repeating: Criticism of the Mk8's appearance reminds me of comments prevalent in 1967 when VW replaced the bug's sloped headlight design with upright, sealed beam units. You'd had thought the world had shifted on its axis. See, for example, https://www.mamotorworks.com/VW/KnowledgeLibrary/exterior/Know-Your-VW-Headlights.
The design change is just not that significant in the scheme of all things Volkswagen. And then there's the fact these cars have always looked like a breadbox anyhow. The forthcoming R certainly looks better than I expected.
Some quick and dirty MS Paint work.
Quick removal of some vinyl.
Possibly more vinyl camouflage removed.
The thing I dislike the most about the MK8 is the odd shape under the headlamps, it definitely looks better with a clean line beneath.
