Silver mirror covers seem a direct Audi S rip off.

Still looks a bit Bland IMHO. Don't know why but I prefer the GTI.

I wish they would go hard core with the Golf R, make it fully mental  >:D

True, it is just like the A3 exhaust setup.

I was thinking about these:


Be good if they took some Audi RS cues and made the Golf R a bit angrier by pumping the guards a bit.

The EA113 engine is no more. It was superceded by the EA888, and that is what the MK7 R and current S3 both use = 221kW.

I had a good look through a white 3 door MK7 R at Frankfurt last weekend, it's very cool 8)
