    Thread: ****US Golf R Spotted Thread****

    1. 12-08-2011 12:14 AM #51
      I prefer the lines of the 4-door, the window sill doesn't swoop up near the C pillar like it does on the 2dr. But, that photo of the the CW looks horrible... Golfs have always had some unbecoming angles when stock, that looks like one of them. The center exhaust doesn't help either.

      The lack of LED tails in favor of reflector tail lamps is what makes the R look like a ubiquitous base model golf. Whoever buys the R needs to upgrade those immediately.

      I agree.

      I'm sure we'll see plenty of something like the one below.

      Yes it's 4 door CW and I think its sexy as hell.

      I can only imagine the test cars are not treated very nice by the drivers.

      Let's just say that those tires are in quite nice shape compared to some of the test cars that I have been in.

      Candy White Golf R sitting in the lot at Flow VW in Winston-Salem. Which is strange because mine hasn't come in yet unless it did this morning, and is only 20 miles away. I was on the interstate so I couldn't get photos or see if it was a 2D or 4D.

      If I recall correctly the ride height on that R is EU Spec, not US. Someone else may have more details but I remember reading that somewhere.

      I don't see why a US spec test car would have a euro spec suspension.

      Honestly just guessing why... because the US Spec cars hadn't been built yet.

      I'm sure VW has the ability to build test cars prior to production begins for consumers.

      Clearly everyone has different viewpoints/agenda's.

      To me the "sacrilege" would be to get one of those "sheet tons of sedans and wagons out there"

      I already have 7 impractical vehicles (which includes the truck/car hauler to tracks)

      I refuse to own a mini-van, station wagon, Sport Ute or SUV for my own personal reasons (same reason I refuse to own boring 4 door sedan like a Camry)

      Why would you care if I prefer the 4 door R anyway? Different strokes for different folks!
      That is because your father is a true gentleman(refering to insisting your mother sits in the front) Great Man there in my book...
