Hi All,

So the idea behind this was to transform a MK7 Highline TDI to look as close as possible as a Golf R. Firstly I wasnt interested in power mods just cosmetic only.

Car was bought in Jan 2016 as a demo model and had a fairly nice spec to start with but from reading this website and being a car enthusiast for a couple of decades I deciced to take on a Golf R replica project and see how far I could get.

A massive massive shoutout to all the forum members on here who without yere help I woudnt have been able to accomplish many jobs.

Mods so far:
