J255C’s 2018 Golf R Manual Thread

Hello - I just picked up my 2018 Golf R last night. I am coming from formerly owning a 420whp Legacy GT, FBO Evo IX, and now a 2012 Mini Cooper.

First impressions- most premium vehicle I have ever owned. Everything is extremely well built and solid. Power is OK- I dont plan on going crazy with this one as I want a reliable fun DD.

My only complaint is the shifter/clutch feel. I have been driving manuals for 16 years. It feels vague and sloppy.

I will update this periodically with any updates on my vehicle:

Exterior:
Light Tint

Suspension/Wheel/Tires:

Summer-
APR AS01 -19 x 8.5
Pirelli Zero Nero GTs

Winter-
Neuspeed RSe16 17 x 8.5
Cooper Tires

Interior:
Aeroforcetech Boost Pod
Banks idash

Engine/Power:
APR Stage 1 Low Torque
AFE Stage 2 Intake

Thanks for looking! More to come!

Just installed my AFE Intake.

That’s it for power mods!

I have a Majesty Intercooler sitting around but won’t install it until I have to get my 20K service done. Haldex, Plugs, Intercooler.
