After selling the XT I was set on getting a manual performance hatchback, some of you may know that I was trying to get a Ford RS, but with production cuts I was not able to get one this year. I got my deposit back from the dealership and headed to a Volkswagen dealership to check out the R. I was glad they had one in the showroom for me to look at! After sitting in the vehicle and comparing it to the RS (I sat in a ST and the interior will be the exact same as the RS) I immediately felt the difference in build quality and I knew that this was the one, especially with the slim pickings its pretty much the only other choice.

The only thing I didn't like about the VW was the Cadiz wheels that it came with. I was told on forums that any of the Rs ordered now would now be able to get the Pretoria wheels (available in Europe) I was sold.

You're putting oil in the interior? I know that will make it shine, but...

Now I have someone to buy R parts off of. Excellent.
If the sea was vodka, and I was a duck.
I would swim to the bottom, and drink my way up.
But the sea isn't vodka, and I'm not a duck.
So give me the vodka, and stfu.
If you're having forum problems, I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but your post ain't one.

Congrats man! I bet you're stoked to actually drive it sooner than the RS, especially with the tracker showing you the stage of production.

My gut feeling was telling me that there'd be a Panda # 3  ::)

Congrats! Love the Pretoria wheels, nice choice.  By the image you chose of the interior, I assume you got the 6MT instead of the DSG?

I have a Lapiz Blue R 6MT tech arriving shortly as well.  This place is going to be turning into the VWSC

I've always really liked the look of the R. Curious to see how you like it and how it drives. Keep us posted.

Yup 6MT, GSM contacted me with an ETA of early June! I'm excited!

Excellent!  I received my notice that the car landed in Halifax early last week.

I ordered a JB1, and will get it installed and then run the car on Sunny's dyno for some graphs and stuff.

Neighbour was trying to con me into putting an APR Stage 1 tune on my GTI.
You won't trick me into voiding my warranty, rascally neighbour!

I agree,  they've been very helpful and communication was quick and easy. I didn't deal with Ryan but with the people I've talked with they've been super friendly and helpful
