Goodbye TDI, hello R

Hi guys

Yesterday I placed an order for a new Golf R. For now I still have 2014 Golf 2.0TDI DSG with a lot of equipment(see thread here: http://www.golfmk7.com/forums/showthread.php?t=27139 )

The configuration I ordered:
Golf R 4Motion DSG
- Oryx white color
- Keyless entry system with alarm system
- DCC
- Discover Media navigation system(I had Discover Pro and never had needs for bigger display or more functions)
- Assistance Driver package(Lane assist, Traffic Jam Assist, Dynamic Light Assist, Blind Spot monitor with rear cross traffic alert)
- Dynaudio Excite sound system
- 19˝ Pretoria wheels(silver)
- Panorama sunroof
- Folding rear view mirrors
- Rear view camera
- Spare tire
- Heated windscreen(I have Webasto on current Golf)
- Winter package
- Tinted rear windows
- Active Info Display


And now we wait. I will be picking the car approx. beginning of April

Have a nice weekend

Right now, as I'm waiting for the car...what do you guys prefer...Discover Media or Discover Pro.

Would you take Discover Media for approx. 700 EUR or Discover Pro for 1900 EUR?

Thank you for your answers

Remove if you want comfort & long term no problems..
Keyless entry system
Assistance Driver package(Lane assist, Traffic Jam Assist, Dynamic Light Assist, Blind Spot monitor with rear cross traffic alert)
Panorama sunroof
19˝ Pretoria wheels(silver)
But my opinions..

Huge congratulations! Really nice builds. Something to consider is 18" wheels which in my opinion are still big enough to look good, but provide good comfort. I was on some roads this weekend and came up on some pot holes in the dark. I was glad I had 18" and not 19".

For me, Discover Media would fit my needs nicely.

I have Keyless right now and I wouldn't trade it for nothing...for me it's one of the best feature in the car(generally speaking). I want Assistance Driver package because it's cheaper for me to take the whole package, rather than Dynamic Light Assist and Blind Spot monitor together).
Panorama...hmmmm...nothing else but the sound when I'm driving with the roof open
I have 18˝ Durban wheels now and was always looking for 19˝(I took the DCC for the compromise of the comfort).

@George Ab
Thank you!
I agree with all of you...18˝ wheels looks great, but I want my car something special, that's why I took 19˝ Pretoria.
In Slovenia we have some pretty bad roads, but my daily commute is always on nice roads

Today I changed the configuration from Discover Media to Discover Pro, basically because if I'm spending that kind of money on the car I want it

It's always like that...Always!
I actually wouldn't order the car, but my friend who has bought himself a new VW Arteon said to me. You know, you only live once. You have to enjoy and get yourself what you want.

Those words and my girlfriend's persuasion to buy a hot hatch

So, the production of the car is confirmed and the car should be arriving in 13/14 week of 2018 of course
Every single day I get more excited

I have ordered Dynablink and I will be putting it on, before I get the car on the road

I work at VW dealership and I could request a "emergency" that's why I'm getting a car so quickly

Little update...this week I'm getting VIN number, the car will be arriving in 3 weeks time.

This is actually my first new car that I ordered and I'm so excited to finally get it on the road. I feel like a little kid who is waiting for gifts on Christmas evening

My car has finally arrived right now waiting for mechanic to take care of the transport stuff(suspension, transport modul), then final clean on the outside.
Couldn't be happier
