That is stunning!

The colour is different and I am a big lover of these flay grey colours.

I don't know why they did not use the 4 wheel drive system from the Golf R and give it the new 310bhp engine though. This is better looking than any Golf and I think VW have missed a trick by not giving these the Golf R running gear!

I drove my friends Scirocco R and it was impressive!

Love the exterior on this one, but think VW could do with giving the interior a good face lift, I don't doubt that it's screwed together well, but a bit bland for me considering that this is a top-end 'R' model.

Beautiful car, the colour is fantasic. I wouldn't rush to lower it, it looks low already (but im quite a bit older than you so we are working to different standards!), you might find after a couple thousand miles more oon the clock it might settle down a bit?.

Power wise compared to the Golf R they are petty much even once going, obviously on set off the golf would be quicker with the 4wd. A friend of mine has a Golf R and we have been out for a few good spirited drives together and there is really nothing at all in them once on the move. It puts power down so well for FWD, must be modern technology that aids that, as my previous car was a 2005 RenaultSport Megane 225, and that was terrible for trying to get grip.

Im unsure why it has a manual handbrake, that's just how they all come for some reason in the R.

I consider it quite good on fuel too compared to the previous Renault, I was averaging 22mpg in the Megane no matter how you drove it. This on a morning commute is usually around 28-30, 38-40 on a run. Although ive been doing a tank of V-Power in around 200-220 miles

Im unsure if it will settle any lower, it will be another month ish before I get round to it anway.
