Bought my Golf R a few weeks ago and so far I'm loving it

Rising blue
3dr
DCC whatever that is lol
19" black talladega
DSG

Bought it completely standard and unmolested

I came from a mk4 Golf R32 on air ride with a full respray and mods everywhere you look but it was time to move onto something a bit newer

This is what she looked like the day i bought it

On day 2, it was time to get serious, and i spent the next 2 days detailing the car, completely removing swirl marks to the best of my ability

I washed, clayed, machine polished and corrected paintwork, sealed and waxed, treated rubbers and plastics and tyres, windows

By the time i was finished it was too dark to get photos haha so all i can show is this

Went over to VW Teeside today to have cruise control retrofitted
cost £125 in total for part + labour, i could have fitted it myself but didn't want to muck up the vcds part of it so let him do it
Whilst i was there i unlocked a few features, alarm blip, windows up when raining, live speedo on the display etc etc which i love by the way, i know mk7 come with this standard
Plus now i have the cruise control it allows me to have the extra features that come with the apr maps.
Whilst i was there, i had an epic drive to whitby and then home on some amazing roads! specifically the A169...wow

Anyway here are a few pics just for the hell of it, loving the new ride height of the h&r springs by the way, didn't think it would make much of a difference but it really does

Enjoy :)

I can be rude, opinionated, and sometimes come off as a dick. I am just speaking my mind. If it offends you, PM me. Don't go whine to someone else. I am civil, talk to me.

Looks good Mike ! Personally I'm not a huge fan of Black Wheels though, it would look even better with Silver ones imo :)

My dad bought it... i kinda hijacked it lol, not sure where its from but its awesome 3.5m x3.5m and comes with all 4 sides so u can lock yourself in haha

Looks stunning pal.....(still prefer the look of your MK4 though).......


Cheers, at the mo the mk4 stands out more and is a head turner, but its early days :) i have plans for the new one

Awesome, i plan on going stage 2+ eventually when the funds allow it, how does the milltek sound? am i correct in thinking he has the bypass valve on it so change it from loud to quiet?

Looking good Mike -did RAY code it for you,would of popped over


Not sure of his name but probably haha, it was a last minute thing, the night before i went i emailed him asking him to fit it, would have been good to catch up

Looks good Mike ! Personally I'm not a huge fan of Black Wheels though, it would look even better with Silver ones imo :)


this has been on my mind a while, and i need to decide what way I'm going with it before i paint things lol, i don't mind them black but they stand out more when silver, especially being the upgraded 19s

Yeah i agree with Neil, not a fan of black wheels personally, would be nice to see how it looks with silver, and also agree with Mick in that the MK4 stands out more, but it's early days like you said.. Is this getting air too or are you sticking with the springs??

P.S The logo on the mats is in a bit of a weird place, was that intentional or is that how they are on the originals??

I like the Rising Blue and black wheels combination, but then again I am biased. :P

i don't mind black wheels to be fair, I've always been against them etc as you can't see any detail etc but i am starting to get used to them, ill probably end up with new wheels in the future anyway lol, and I'm not sure what direction I'm taking the car in yet, only time will tell, i bought h&r to pass the time and get it looking better until i make my decision on coils vs air etc,

as for the mats It was intentional, on the mk5 mats the R logo is in a similar place

Yes mate, we have both R and R32 now, i didn't plan on buying one, but i went to go see it as it was local and ended up sealing the deal there and then, bit of a YOLO moment haha
