Par for the Course - Rising Blue Golf .:R Build

Okay... So since I'm in the US, this build is presently just meant to be somewhat of a hopeful undertaking (wishful thinking). But if it does come here, then I might be able to make it a reality. Definitely I'd be springing for a 2-door with manual transmission. Don't really want/need a sunroof, but I probably wouldn't be able to opt out of that.
To me, the Golf R is an impressive car, so there's a lot about it that I wouldn't want to change. I've always loved the blue Mk4 & Mk5 R's, so Rising Blue Metallic would be a necessity.


Other Initial ideas for the Golf R:
-The exterior is great the way it is, so not really any "purely cosmetic" plans there.
Except maybe a badgeless front grille! I'm always in favor of that.

-The 19" wheel package would be great, because of the bi-xenons with the black housings, but I'd immediately dump the wheels and put on some gold 17" OZ Alleggeritas.

*If anyone wants to photoshop that combination (gold OZ wheels + badgeless), that would be awesome.

-Adam's Rotor's - Race, black zinc coated, w/ Black Hubs
-Forge Short Shift kit & 42 Draft Designs Shifter Bushings - I really like the Diesel Geek kit, but not sure if my wife would be able to handle it.
-USP Stainless Steel Brake Lines

-Black Forest Industries mounts - Stage III Engine, Stage II Tranny, & Torque Arm Insert


-Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec - although I have heard that this wheel/tire combination makes a strange harmonic sound ???

-OEM Recaro Sportster CS seats - got my fingers crossed that they'll have this as a stateside option


-Bilstein PSS10 Coilovers


-BSH VTA Catch Can - using one of these presently on my GTI and it works great.

Like I said, this build is presently just an idea here in the U.S., but if anyone's got a Rising Blue Golf R in other parts of the world, then be glad to steal my fire!

That's actually the look I'd be going for.
Imagine the look on an STI owner's face when you pull up next to him with that color scheme!

That'll work... not a fan of gold wheels, however. Fingers crossed that we get it in the US!

Well, looks like this build is going to become a reality!

Also, I confirmed that Black Forest Industries is working on a Stage III transmission mount.
Lastly, check this out. Arin posted these teaser shots over on GolfMkV the other day:

That's the new Carbonio for the FSI engine. Compatibility with the Golf R has been confirmed.
Not "lucky" just yet. I gotta figure out how to tell my wife that I'm getting another new car...
I'm gonna be in the dog house for sure.
