      Thank you for listening, VW! We can't wait to get our hands on it.
      I think I'm going to listen to APR on this one. You guys rock. Getting excited for possibly owning one of these bad boys.

      Argh was planning on taking deliver of a mk6 golf r in 10 days. Very excited but now I'm nervous...



      After all the misinformation with the mk6 golf R I can't help but think 2014 golf r in 2013 is unlikely. But I would certainly possibly kick myself if it came out soon both on resale and on cool factor not to mention the newer engine architecture...

      Get that car. The next r isn't coming for yes. Enjoy the mk6 and chip it at the very least. The r comes into its own once chipped. Extremely fun to drive!

      2013 Golf R in RB
      09-05-2012 12:45 AM #30
      I can't imagine that the Golf R VII would be available as early as 2013. I think earliest is 2014. I like the fact that the current R is built largely in Germany. But this is just silly on my part. Anyways, who knows what VWoA decides on regarding the availability of the R in North America. I'm just going to enjoy my new R and not even think of the next installment.

      I'm not feeling the front of the Golf VII - it resembles a Jetta. However, the interior is really nice, and I like the profile.

      And I literally decided today that I was pretty set on a 4 door Mk6 R. Come here to register and the front page has Mk7 pics... Do I really have the patience to wait a year?

      I guess I could get a deal on an Mk6 tho come march?

      Until I hear it from VW, or Jamie , I'm not buying that we'll see a 2014 R in the US. I also wouldn't bet that you'll still be able to get a 2013 R in March. It's possible, but in the configuration you want? Not sure.

      And add me to the list of people that are content with these rumors. Would I like 300+ hp stock? Sure. But at 6'5" with two growing 5-year-olds, I'm just as happy with a slight hp bump, more interior room and lighter weight. I think the Golf looks good, and assume the R will look great.

      I can't imagine there won't be used, low mileage Rs available in March. New, I'd think very few.

      Is it confirmed that the NA market is getting the R VII? There was such a battle getting the VI to be available for NA. Or, it it a done deal that it's coming, and if so, will it be limited production? Not that I really care if it's limited or not. The way people are discussing it, it sounds like it's coming for sure and the question is when?

      And for the rest, we have any number of quality tuners to choose from.
      A friend of mine reminded me of this in a different situation- mountain biking. He happens to be an excellent mountain biker and he noticed how lots of biking enthusiasts would spend hundreds/thousands of $$$ to save a few grams here and a few grams there. A much cheaper way to lose riding weight (bicycle with rider ad gear) is to lose rider weight, ie. go on a diet. One could literally lose tens of pounds!

      I mention this story so that from now until the release of the next R, if individual who has "excess" body stores loses 50 lbs, he/she would "gain" an additional 5 hp. Gotta plan ahead!

      Make no mistake, the MK6 Golf R is a sexy SEXY car. (if you value modest good looks with street-shredding performance). Not a bad choice no matter what the future holds.

      Despite what might be guessed at in the press, it's my opinion that North America is ALWAYS at risk of never seeing another R version with each new generation (or we are at risk of getting it YEARS behind EU at least). I think every generation VW reassess whether they should bring the Golf R to NA, or simply let those that want AWD move upscale into Audi's.

      If the GTD version comes to NA, I think that will make the potential R market even smaller (and reduce chances or delay release further)

      Plan on a 2-yr wait minimum for the MK7 R release to NA. You can enjoy your MK6 for ~2 years and resell it in its prime if you want to change into an MK7 R later.

      All of the above are my opinions only.

      Good luck with your decision.

      That info comes from the norwegian product manager for VW. So I will say it's true.

      Thanks for this.

      I think many of us are from North America (US), and we always need to differentiate between:
      1. What Europe gets
      2. What may eventually come as 'stripped down' versions to the US.

      Certainly helpful, but we really won't know what 'we' (US) get until announced by VWoA.

    24. 09-06-2012 05:57 PM #49
      276 hp is fine with me, what isn't fine is a 4WD setup that defaults to FWD most of the time. With the current Golf-R if you gently ease onto the brake going into a corner it opens the clutches resorting to a full FWD under-steering pig with all the engine & transmission loads being jettisoned to the front wheels. The next R needs to have a much more aggressive 4WD setup.
      I am a VW Fan, but above all I am a Car Fan.

      I highly doubt that we will see another Golf R in 2014. It seems that volkswagen is going with a 4 year stint...MKIV R32 2004....MKV R32 2008....MKVI GOLF R 2012...I am assuming the next R will be slated for 2016

      Many people enjoy eating apples and oranges, but in the end they are still… just apples and oranges. The R32 is passion fruit. . Live Long and Prosper.
