Golf R in the flesh
« on: 26 January 2021, 11:25 »
Just saw a Golf R MK8 near my house in white, very under whelmed, looks much nicer in Lapiz Blue on videos ive watched, as per the MK7 GTi look better in white than the MK7 R...definitely would not purchase in white that's for sure.

White normally contrasts well with the gloss black.
Trouble is the R needs a quite a few grand throwing at it to look ‘right’ such as Performance Pack and probably the Akra too. Although many owners might prefer the much stealthier look of the standard car, I’ve read plenty of posts in the past (mk7 days) of those wanting the car played down as much as possible. Everyone is different.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. That said, I like that in white. At least you can see that blue line.

Of the three available colours, if I was buying one I’d get it in white - IMO the easiest of the three colour options to maintain, and it’s the free colour (what does ‘Additional costs may apply’ mean though if you choose white?). But hey, it’s good we don’t all like the same things. 

It does need the 19” Estoril alloys though. Standard wheels are :sick:; in my opinion of course.
