Aqib's New Volkswagen Golf R

Thought I would share my new brief Completely different animal to my previous car. Finished in Limestone Grey, with DSG gearbox. 0-62 in 4.9 seconds!

Enjoy

Enjoy. Like the stealth colour too. You will be taking a few rep mobiles by surprise.

What a beast... Looks good!

How does it go? Does it feel as aggressive as the type r?

The doppelkupplungsgetriebe must be quick on upshifts.

Pushed it hard yet or still bedding the engine in.

Very nice mate - i found these a bit underwhelming when i first saw them in pictures, totally different story in the flesh. DSG is fantastic - is it the 7 speed box?

Great colour! I don't usually like the gold ones but that's top stuff.

I had a run with one of those the other day... Poor Golf R lol! Was quick though!

Any modification plans?

Thanks mate.

It's a totally different car compares to the Type-R. The exhaust
note in race mode is very addicting!

It's the 6 speed mate. It doesn't come in a 7.

Got you, the last generation of the DSG box was a 7 speed, don't know if they've discontinued it and swapped for 6? I used to get lost in 7 gears so probably not a bad thing!

I'm not to sure if it has been discontinued, I was given the option between a 6 Speed DSG or a 6 Speed manual. Choosing the DSG over the manual was a no brainer for me.
