I must agree i have seen a good few Golf R. Also most of the ones i have seen have been driven like they have been stolen :no: Yeah i agree we should try and get something sorted. Does anyone know of any nice but subtle front lips spoiler and possibly rear roof spoiler extension for the Rocco.

Thanks Jest,

Was also thinking about a lease but as i want to do a few mods in time and don't have £30k plus to get a brand new one i came across this at a cracking deal. The main thing that sold it to me was i got a 2 year extended warranty which kicks in Feb 2019 to covered until Feb 2021 :)

There are some out there but I cannot find anything subtle that doesn't spoil the look of the car and make it look chavvy.

I never liked the stainless steel look wing mirror covers so bought a pair of black ones from Ebay from China. Dead easy to change without taking the wing mirror glass out. Apart from changing the front badge to a black one when the warmer weather eventually comes I can't see anything that makes it look better than it already does.

It does have tinted windows as standard but I was thinking about getting then done darker as you can still see inside. On my last car I had the full limo tint

Well that is exactly it, I really hate the chav look. Wish to keep it as standard as possible with very miner tweaks to personalise. Completely agree i think the first thing will be tints , Seen one with 90% rear and 15% front which looks very nice. Possibly have the rear light slightly smoked like the are on the Golf R. Not seen any face lift models with smoked rear light and any on pre face lift are completely black. haha

The easy way is to buy a Carista. You will get a month free with it so you can change the country of origin to enable the big speedo.

++ if you do get their adaptor you get a 1-month free trial where u can access all the settings and change them to your likings. I've made a thread about the features (picture are in random order though) viewtopic.php?f=36&t=25715
