lol i love the capo plates btw... i always watch richard mcalister's youtube videos
The interior. In the Golf, you sit upright, row gears, it feels like your almost in a lawn chair. Not really a problem, or you may not notice it, until you jump into the TT. Instantly you are in a coupe, your feet / legs extend in front of you. Feels like your in a real sports car (which you really are) The shifter is in a better spot, its a little smaller inside, the best way I can describe it is like your in an airplane cockpit.
The sound. Even with just a sport exhaust, the note of the 5cylinder is amazing. You can hear the turbo, but its a good mixture between the two. The R stock had just the soundaktor, maybe some turbo spool. Catless, the R sounds loud / really amazing at WOT. But I can imagine the TTRS would sound soo much better with downpipes / exhaust.
The whole 'RS' thing. Will hold its value way better than our cars, limited to 1400 units over here. Its definitely a lot better of a car than the TT and TT-S. 360hp out of the box, its just a step above the 'R.
Wow, Tyler I can't believe you're selling your R after your masterful and classy mods. There is no question in my mind, that the TT-RS is a couple of steps above the R. I absolutely love the car - the interior is gorgeous and so is the exterior. But, and it's a big but, for $65k, I would expect it to be a better car - all around. I'd jump at the chance to buy one, but as a second car. Buying one isn't in my financial cards. I need utility for my lifestyle - that's why I bought the hatch. Anyway, I am totally green with envy. I know you'll love the car. I hope you'll still contribute to the forum. Why do you have to order one, there are several in southern calif. Two in Mission Viejo alone.
BTW, I'll buy your CH-Rs and borla exhaust.

Gal with a Blue R
My local dealer is Audi Mission Viejo, but they only have white and black. I want the white but it has to be leather, not suede. Also if I were to order it would have to be Solar Orange Which the exclusive colors are a 4 month wait..
So, I decided to keep the R. Four months is a LONG time. It makes more sense to stay with it, I haven't completed it yet in my opinion, and with this far I might as well go all the way. Dropped it off for some window tint tonight, some good / big plans for it this winter
All California R's must be stage 4 before they are complete ! ( :
