Jamie's Oryx White Golf R

Hi,

I have had my Golf R for just under 3 weeks now so decided to finally start a thread for it. Previously I had a mk5gti but had*been looking at an 7R for a long time. I recently transferred from part time in the Fire Service to full time so thought now was the perfect time to finally get one and to get something to show for my hard work. I looked everyday online for the right one, initially I wanted a Lapiz Blue 5dr Dsg with both full leather and pretoria alloys. I came across one but when I rang to enquire it had already been sold*It was then when I looked a few days later when I saw an Oryx white model fairly locally, so I rang up and organised to view it the next day.

Once I saw the Oryx white in the flesh I knew it was the colour that I wanted. The car itself has a really good spec in my opinion,

Oryx White
3 door DSG
65 plate
25,000 miles
Full service history
Full heated vienna leather
19" Pretoria Alloys on*Continental Contisportcontact 5's
Keyless entry and go
Black electric folding mirrors
Sat nav with DAB

First thing I decided was to get a fresh set of plates before I put mine on

Once I had picked the car up, the DAB radio didn't have the icons so I uploaded them on a memory stick

My favourite so far

The only thing that I have done to the car is I have had a security system fitted to the car for peace of mind after seeing some videos and hearing stories about keyless cars. Thankfully this will no longer be a problem!

Thanks

Jamie

Great looking car and possibly the best colour especially at night.
