    Hi all, Just wondering if anyone else have had this issue. I took it back to Bayford Camberwell under warranty and they sent photos off to VAG Australia who have rejected the warranty claim as it’s not a manufacturing defect as far as they are concerned. Has anyone else has this issue and...

    Hi Everyone, I just bought a 2019 Golf R MK 7.5 DSG with 9.5k miles on it for $43k out the door. Test drove it a few times, and instantly fell in love.

    Volkswagen is looking forward right now and that’s a good thing. New cars, new forms of propulsion, new horizons. But through it all, it’s nice to be reminded that you can fall back into the familiar, caring arms of the GTI. Matt Farah’s latest One Take video takes a bone stock Mk7.5 GTI up to...

    We’re close to having to say goodbye to the Mk7 Golf, so it’s a good time to look back at what made it such a special car. Especially within these forums. Car Magazine spent 8 minutes trying to answer what it is about the R that makes it so special and we think they might have done it. It all...

    Unicorns do exist. We know because user ray_futbol just published the build sheet for his latest tuned VW . It’s a 4wd wagon with a 6-speed manual in a completely adult, yet still alluring shade of green. And that’s just how it came from the factory — but don’t worry, it’s far from stock...
