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!

Cheers Josh! I read on here yesterday someone had been through two rev G's in two weeks, think the DV+ is much more cost effective and total peace of mind.

those seats  :happy2:

They do finish the interior off very nicely!  :wink:

This sits so damn well on those 19s! Does it still ride well?

Apparently the GFB DV+ is even more responsive than the Rev G, which in turn is (in theory) more responsive than the Rev D, so you should feel a nice improvement. And it's better in terms of reliability like you say.

Really like the mk6 R. This one looks top notch.

Not going to lie but it's pretty stiff, but I'm sure thats down to the polybushes. The BC coils are a lot nicer than the standard shocks, which had Adaptive Chassis Control. However, took the long way home from work this week through some iconic Welsh B-roads that Chris Harris uses often on his Youtube videos. Despite the stiff ride when pottering around, all is forgiven when on a hoon. It's totally planted, no flex in the chassis whatsoever.

Will try and order a GV+ soon, also need to do cam follower and PCV valve.

Yep, that pretty much sums up the mk5/6. A bit rough round town but once you're up to speed spot on in the bends. I'll be hitting a few Welsh B-roads myself in a couple of weeks. Quite looking forward to it.

Definitely. Great fun when you want it but also a (relatively) comfortable and practical car for any occasion.

When we next go for a blast up to Brecon you should tag along! Few nice picture opportunities! Nate PE can sort you out with a DV+ too.

Definitely mate, we head up that way quite a bit, you on Instagram? Shoot me a message if so, @olliedunstall, have a few mates who would tag along too!

Looking good Ollie  :happy2:

Lovely car you've got, I've just put a deposit on a white one really really would of liked a blue one but when there isn't too many to pick from and when you want a Manual, low milage etc etc it's seems impossible so had to give on something so white it is  :happy2: can't wait

In that mag picture it's says only 800 mk6 r are in the uk, is this correct?

Glad to hear mate, you will love it.

Definitely under 1000 and many state around 800 - take away a few that have been stolen/written off (I did one of them  :sad1:)

They are hard to find when you're looking, especially when you have a desired spec. I got very lucky with both of my 6R's, this one was the jackpot IMO!

Get a thread going when you collect!  :happy2:

I'd do the same if I had the holy grail of CDL + AWD. This graph is dyno porn:



457bhp and 430lb/ft. And it spools like a k04 by the look of things. Want.

Car look's awesome! I assume you can fit a TTS engine cover even with an aftermarket Intake?
