Golf mk8 / Re: Golf R in the flesh
« Last post by AndyGTI on 26 February 2021, 18:26 »
They’re all privately owned cars so possibly a sneaky tune?

I’ve seen a few rolling road graphs of the M135i engine in both the BMW and JCW that are putting out a decent amount less than the 306PS (but these might have been cars that hadn’t reached the magic 1000km running in ECU trigger for all I know).

A good result though.

The posh lad needs to cut down on his E numbers though...

So looks like we need a second opinion. Hopefully the Golf was standard, but wasn’t sure what had been done to the M135i

Oh wow!

So it’s on it’s (slow way) over to UK from factory.  That is exciting. So are you expect it for mid to late March? :smiley:

It’s good the app does sometimes work, several people over on VWROC are having a nightmare trying to keep track of their R order

Had the day off work so went for a localish drive. Surprisingly busy sadly but it was nice to be out. Also updated the nav to the latest maps. Not sure how much I'll use the built in sat nav after years of using Google Maps but at least I worked out the process.

Official UK press release:

https://www.vwpress.co.uk/en-gb/releases/4448

There is some deceiving stuff in there.... unless the ED45 comes with DCC as standard...

I wonder what the "GTI 45" badge looks like on the rear?

Hi Fred, I read the press release but couldn’t see anything mentioned about DCC. Think it’s probably still on the options list.

Will be interested to see what take up is like

Today I have spotted my car on We Connect.

It has three quarters of a tank of fuel and travelled a few hundred yards.

Yay!

Washed mine,ready for new wheels tomorrow.



Also fitted new front and rear cameras, front one I had previously was a few years old so decided to replace it and add a rear one too.










Think I’ve now decided to get the roof wrapped too.

You called it Fred, but the power mad (me included) won’t believe you.  As has been said here, very early in the model cycle so couldn’t expect engine tweak in reality.

However if the Edition 50 doesn’t have 350ps then it will be a disgrace.......even if you need to take a spare set of tyres just to go to the shops to cope with shredded tyres from the power :grin: :grin:

I really like these and would love a set in 18” for my car (Polo GTI+) but unfortunately BBS don’t make them with the Polo’s bolt pattern (5x100).

I personally think that they would look great on a red GTI; IMO satin back wheels look best on red and white cars; just my opinion though.........

Good luck with the sale :smiley:.

No worries, thank anyways
