Stunning car this  :happy2: exhaust sounds great and can only imagine in person it's even better. Out of intrest what's the diameter of the tail pipes?

Thanks Chris! It sounds great in the flesh  :innocent:

They're 100mm which is just shy of 4" (3.93701" to be exact  :grin:), and fill the diffuser recesses perfectly IMO.

Been quiet with the updates recently. Nothing too much has happened; I've reached a point where I'm enjoying the car but going into my third year of ownership I can't help but focus on what's next. The Golf has been faultless and is an incredible all-rounder, but who knows what next year may bring. I toyed with the idea of a fuel pump and 2+ map however I think I'd rather keep the cash and enjoy it as is.

Had my wheels refurbished back to OEM hyper silver;

Whilst the wheels were off it was a good excuse for a deep clean; arches washed, decontaminated and dressed in Poorboys Natural Look. Brake disc bells painted black (apologies for the shocking photograph!)

Gave all wheels two coats of Gtechniq C5 Wheel Armour including the inner barrels. Yet to comment on the product as I haven't washed it yet but it was easy to apply and certainly gave them a glossy finish.

...and finally 4 x brand new OEM centre caps to finish it off

It's all in the details  :wink:

Thanks for looking  :happy2:

Hi guys,

Been a while since I posted on here.

Just a quick message to send out a feeler to anyone who may be interested in buying my car. It's not officially for sale yet, will probably putting it up toward the end of the year, but just a heads up to anyone who might be interested. I could be persuaded to let it go beforehand if I get a good offer.

Hopefully I don't need to bang on about condition etc - hopefully my documentation of the car over the last few pages will show how well it's been cherished. Full service history, MOT is due next month but will be sorted.

2012 (62) Golf 6 R DSG, currently on 54k'ish, will rise gently as I cover around 500mls/month. Every possible extra (including RNS510, Recaros, DCC, Dynaudio, blah blah blah) plus some OEM+ mods (listed below) that make this car drive so, so well (and look the part, too!).

Been serviced at the correct intervals, with OEM genuine parts, can provide more info. if required.

Mods include BC Racing Coilovers, H&R Anti Roll Bars, Polybushed, BCS Powervalve Exhaust w/ 200cel Sports Cat, Revo CAI, GFB DV+, Polar FIS Advanced, TTS engine cover, Carbon mirror caps, probably more that I've missed; thats just off the top of my swede.

Genuine reason for sale as I'm itching to get into something with a flat six motor, something I've wanted to do for a while and now seems the time to do it before I have to be sensible.

Please get in touch if you are - or know anyone that may be - interested. Happy to sell in standard form if I have buyers for the parts, but would rather it go as is.

Cheers, Ollie. ​​​​​​​
