Quick, cancel your Clubsport orders and buy an R as it’s superior for driving because it launches better  :rolleyes:

What’s a set of clean second hand Belvederes worth on Bridgestone tyres? Is it safer go for new copy’s?  What’s ur opions of Belvederes on mk7 TR? Thanks.

Welcome Brid  :smiley:

It’s good to see some different (related) models on here, GTE’s are certainly under-represented

What do you think of it?
For many of us, once we’ve owned a Golf of some sort it becomes hard not to own one!

Welcome Reuben  :smiley:
Do you have any photos of the GTI? Any plans for it?
The Passat is certainly of a decent vintage! Does it have many miles on it?

It’s good to see something a little different on here.
The wheels look like they’re definitely easier to clean than the OEM items.
It’ll be interesting to see how the car develops as far as future modifications go during your continuing ownership  :cool:

As @Exonian has said, fitting different alloys isn’t an issue for most insurers - most are happy to accept them without issue. 

I have aftermarket alloys on my car; no issues with them from my current insurer. I’m switching to a new insurer in a few days time and they have no issues with my aftermarket alloys either.

Lots of good advice here as ever.  :smiley:

My tuppence worth: 

Refurb the Austins in mid/dark grey.

OR get a set of 18” Reifnitz from CMWheels similar to Ceefeesh’s set


Guzzle is quite correct, you’ll need an £8 set of eBay metal decals for the supplied wheel centres. The OEM bolts swap over as do the bolt covers. And your insurers will need to know. Mine were perfectly ok with fitting aftermarket wheels, it’s not exactly unusual so was no issue for them.
