      I think you will probably have to get rid of these oversized tires, check the ET.

      No

      The wheel is 19x9 et33

      Way too wide and low of an offset to fit under stock MK6 fenders.

      These went on the morning after I took delivery of my car.




      I've also hard-wired my V1.


      Next on the list is getting my windows tinted.

      Washed it then celebrated 1000 miles by doing some 0-80 runs with some "test" launches. 4500 rpms seems to be ideal.

      Those LED taillights look awesome but I can't get myself to spend the $$$. Don't want to get off topic but what are people paying?

      Kessy is out of commission. "Keyless Defective" message on the MFD. Door handles don't lock/unlock the car.

      Nice, how does it feel compared to your 1M?
      That's a tough comparison. The 1M has Motons and a tune (353 hp / 403 torque at the wheels) so although the R feels quick it isn't in the same league as the 1M. The R is my daily driver so I'm trying to avoid mods. I suspect that will be a challenge.

      Nice, I still haven't done any hard launches in mine. How do it pull?
      Very smooth! I tried it at around 4K but it bogged down so the next time I went up a bit and it was much better. I think 4800-5K is the magic spot for the best standing launch.

      Yes and TC was off. A few more tenths might be had with higher revs but I didn't want to find out.

      Soon I will have plenty of them in stock soon.

      Full RVC kits as well along with the Drain Tube which can only be ordered in EU countries it seems.

      Those actually look way better on the car than I would have expected!
