Default Mooks 2016 Golf R

And since I loved it so much, picked up a CPO 2016 R..............DSG

So far, fucking love this thing. I was sold the minute I took it out for a spin. The power and trans in this thing are in perfect harmony. Already had tints and new tires. 1 owner car, guy traded it in for a red R

Got a good deal, said fuck it.

The DSG is on point. Quick shifting, track friendly. EHH HEM.

I really expected to not like the trans but as soon as I put it in race mode, sold. And the lovely noises between shifts

It's very GTR feeling, it's pretty dope. Reliable too.

Def much smoother than the GTR. At least the two 09s I've driven previously.

Much better picture . I've never driven or even been in a DSG car so I'm excited to see what it's about.



Im not positive, but I think that car has some sort of valved exhaust on it too.

Golf Rs are ridiculously priced. Almost 40k, no thanks. I did find a few for 35 or so but all out of state. I set a spending limit and the R just wasnt in my range nor did I see any true benefits...

I should have driven one. Changed my whole perspective

And at the time, there wasn't shit for sale in IL. Being a CPO really helped convince me too.

Will she be ready for AB on 6/5? If you don't throw up on your first run out, you are doing better than @Eagle

Awesome pick up Mook!

I love these things. Drove a six speed and lined it. Then I drove a DSG one and was very impressed. Absolute rocket. It was a basically a hatch version of my wife's BMW. I was just too cheap to justify a $40k price on a car for me.

I don't get it. You didn't buy a Charger Scat Pack?
