What kind of car do you own?

2017 MK7.5 Golf R Wolfsburg Wagon

How long have you owned the car?

I've had the car for 3 months now and prior to that I was driving a BMW 435I

Why did you choose this car? What appeals to you the most?

In my opinion, the interior is pretty special for the price. It's far better than my 435I which costs twice as much. It also has a powerful engine which is easily tuned to give the performance of super car.

What work have you completed on the car so far (please be as detailed as possible)?

I've got a lot of things I want to do to this car but for now my car has the following added to it

  • APR Stage 2 - Forge Intake
  • CTS Turbo Inlet
  • DP
  • Wagner
  • Intercooler
  • Springs
  • Spacers

What work would you like to do to your car in the future?

In terms of future work, I've got a few things planned. Firstly, the cat back exhaust system is yet to come out, so that will be one of the next on my list.

In terms of styling I'll be looking at a rear diffuser, painted roof rails and rear section at the top of the tailgate and also installing a rear spoiler.

What type of bodykit does have on the car?

So far on this car I've put the following:

  • Maxton Front Splitter
  • Maxton Side skirts
  • Maxton Rear skirts
  • Reare spoiler yet to be installed.

How have you improved the performance? What parts or tuning has been completed?

So far I've completed the APR Stage 2 as well as installing the parts listed above. I'm yet to dyno my car but can already feel the difference. 

I'm hoping the car can achieve 0-100km/ph in 3.75s or thereabouts as it's a wagon.

What mistakes have you made? Did you waste money on trying to change your car?

I'm yet to make any mistakes with the upgrades with the work I've completed on the car. I'm really happy with everything so far and can't wait to do more work.

What would you recommend to other car enthusiasts about owner a car like yours or more generally in terms of upgrading an existing car? Any advice, tips or tricks?

One thing I would recommend is getting all the body kit parts as it immediately makes the car look special, and it's not expensive, and you can probably install it yourself to save money.

APR Stage 1 is all you need for performing tuning as it's the best value for money tune. Stage 2, with what i've currently done, has cost over $5,000 without achieving the same gains I made in APR Stage 1.
