yes I totally get what you’re saying and been discussed a few times in the R forum. For me I had to change as my lease was up. I was more than happy with my 7.5R but it was going so needed a replacement. In saying that for me the 7/7.5 is starting to look a little dated as it’s been around for a...
yep I went manual mK7 gti (2 years) to manual S3 8v (18 months) to mK7 dsg GTI (6 months tops) to 3 very enjoyable years in a mK7.5 R.
The wife, who is a petrol head also got tired in the gti as she had it another 2.5 years so now has an A35 as she prefers the added grip.
Gti on a nice dry...
If the clubsport was available in a manual it would have been a tough choice between that and the R. But the R edges it for me. The dsg box works fantastically with the 4wd system. However I owned a mK7 gti in both manual and DSG.
Both had tuning boxes so putting out decent power, granted not...
some very good discounts knocking about on the R so you stand a good chance.
Watch a few videos of the new clubsport. Prefer the seat design over the R and I think it sounds brilliant. Hope the R sounds as good.... doubt it though.
I had this exact problem with my lease.
paint, wheels and winter took me over by about £150 or so. The cost of extra tax is passed on me.... so I need to put and extra £600 deposit on about £15 a month in.... or have a cold bum for about 3 mins a trip. I will have warm hands as the steering...
As I suspected, the S3 deal I spotted was wrong. Seemed cheap. Checked this morning at it was £70 a month more. Golf R it is, I have a mk 7.5R now so happy to trust the reviews and order it without a test drive
Well after much debate and coming extremely close to buying a second hand motor I took the plunge and ordered the new golf R on a lease.
I got it a little cheaper than that going direct to VW.
If I had known what I had know now I would probably have leased the new S3 when there were a couple...
The golf was popular in the MK7 guise, but didn’t have much in way of competitors.
Now there a quite a few 300ish bhp 4wd hot hatches.
DTD the deal are already giving 11% discount I think but still too expensive for a Golf.
My brother in law has put his very special Renault Clio V6 for sale. An absolutely amazing car.
Any questions please ask. The car is based in the Saddlworth area.
ha ha I do remember seeing one on a thread somewhere on here. I was passenger, the Mrs drove the Cupra. She drives one a regular basis and she really rates it.
Perfect car for uk roads in my option, rides the uneven surfaces/bumps nicely and goes like stink. I also remember it sounding good...
