Ollie's 2012 Rising Blue 6 R
« on: July 09, 2016, 11:07:17 PM »
Hi guys,

Been lurking on here a little while, usually spend my time over at VWROC. I'm Ollie, 22 and from Cardiff.

Thought I'd start a build thread for my 2012 Golf R. Currently lowered on BC coilovers, with H&R anti roll bars and power flex bushes. Also upgraded to EBC slotted discs and Yellowstuff pads all round.

The car is an ex VW demo with every option available, including the Recaro wing backs. This is actually my second Golf 6 R - unfortunately my first was written off in an accident.

Will update over the next few days when I get a bit more time :)

Thanks all - it was a PITA to source one with that spec. As luck would have it, someone over at VWROC heard about my accident and messaged me as he was thinking of selling up in the near future.

Did GTI Inters this Sunday, will try and get some more photos up later  :smiley:

Thanks Dan! I can see you're local and have VCDS - are you able to turn on the large speedo on my MFD? Drop me a message if this is something you can do  :happy2:

Cheers both  :happy2:

I did wind it down some more out of curiosity, but the wheels were catching the inner lip. Now back to a practical-ish height, just had it aligned too so feels spot on.

I do have some wider SRS-Tec arches which I'm unsure about, been meaning to do a trial fit, hopefully this weekend.

Car had it's MOT yesterday, flew through with no advisories.  :mad:

Not too much to update other than;

Whipped the diverter valve off. Car has a rev. D fitted, will be upgrading to a GFB DV+ soon as it's a fit and forget item.



Got hold of a TTS engine cover, thought I'd offer it up whilst the engine cover was off. Need a nice intake before I can fit it, thinking EvoMS or Revo.



Also updated the RNS510 firmware and upgraded the maps.



Not much planned at the moment, insurance is up next month so that's the next purchase  :sad1:

eBay bud, had these discs a little while though, think they have since released a new maps (v13).

Worth doing if you haven't already, speeds it up to use and also enables video in motion.   :pomppomp:

Gave the car it's weekly maintenance wash today, a friend also called around with his R32 GTR. Gave it another coat of Dodo Juice Blue Velvet just to finish the proceedings.













Replaced the seat base trim as it was covered in scuffs and scratches from previous owner(s). Whilst I was doing so, fitted some R seat handle badges;



Added some carbon mirrors a little while back;



I was also contacted through VWROC by a freelance journalist who was compiling a buyers guide for Evo mag. He asked me to share a few words as to why I chose to buy one. Six weeks later a free copy popped through the door!

Car looks really good Ollie! Definitely the best colour for an R  :happy2:

The GFB DV+ was nice and easy to fit and hopefully won't need touching again!
