Just out of interest, do the MK7.5 GTi's with the GPF still have a reasonator? I know it's widely reported that the exhaust sounds a little fruitier than the pre facelift.

Yes, they do. The exhaust is louder stock on the Performance that than the 230bhp GTI. And mine is even louder now! (see exhaust thread!). Not sure how it compares to Mk7s though.

Thanks Clarky92 ! Really helpful.

Am I right in saying the winter pack (heated seats etc) is now standard as well on the MY19 R?

As of today Carwow is reporting that the Golf R is no longer in production ?! Mistake surely?

Checked with a couple of dealers, appears to be a mistake by carwow. Likely due to the changes.
