Where I used to live (northern suburbs of IL) everything was so spread out so I got a decent chance to drive it. Speed bumps were nonexistent and there very few curbs/ramps into places. Seems like I...

How much do you LOVE your Golf R? HELP!

Iím kicking around the thought of getting an R maybe MK6 but most likely MK7, but am on the fence about a few things. I have been lusting after an R for a couple years.

@Pooley - thanks for the insight, maybe I will structure it like that. I tend to underestimate how long projects will take. I will definitely change it soon though, the 1-2 shift doesn't feel nice...

Grab a blisterpack of batteries online for cheap (10pk) when the FOB doesn't work "as far away as you'd like" just change it. Cheap replacement for an easily fixed annoyance.
