Car looks epic! very tidy motor. Is the ‘R’ the hottest in the VW range now or does the ‘GTI’ still hold that?

Normally I hate white cars, but I must admit that suits the car well.
Nice to see the Planet Rock icon!

Looking great buddy! Just picked up a Leon Cupra 300 and I have the same missing Icon issue on the DAB so I will follow your lead with inputting the logos. Thanks for the tip!

The R is the top of the pile. Previous incarnations were badged R32 (the Passat had an R36....I think there was a Tourag as well, R50 or similar).

I think it goes something like:
  • GTI
  • GTI Performance Pack
  • R

There's also a mental 400bhp GTI Clubsport I think? But you can't buy one for love nor money.

The GTI Clubsport is just a 40th aniversary GTI, 260hp with overboost to 285 I think, plenty for sale.

They done a concept with about 400HP but was never released, which is the one you're thinking of

Great to see another Radio X fan!
The silver white is nice, a family member has a 7.5 R in that colour and it is a nice colour, I just like the pearl in the Oryx white and haha its a must!

They are 300bhp and with the dsg the 0-60 is 4.9 but thats irrelevant really but in short yes its very fast

I was set on lapiz to be fair but once I had seen this colour in the flesh there was no way I was getting a different colour The pretoria alloys and the black wing mirrors make it stand out even more in my opinion Thank you mate

Thank you and no i've not seen them, is it to do with internet or something similar to apple play?

Thank you and it is, they do a clubsport gti which is quicker than the normal gti. The R is different because it has more power but also 4wd too

Thank you, I know someone with a red cupra, they're nice cars! If you're stuck I think I used this link and then just saved them to a usb and uploaded them.

There might be a couple missing depending what you listen too but you can always just get a picture off google

When I got the car the fm logos were on it but not on the DAB for some reason.

Thank you, I had a mk5gti before this but I wanted 4wd and DSG after test driving one back in September last year, I was a bit picky and in no rush so glad I waited.

Thank you all

Ahhh yeah that's the one - I heard they were doing a limited run of them...or at least I thought I had. My bad!
