      2013 Golf R Mk6
      08-21-2019 12:01 AM #1
      Hello everyone, just wanted to stop by and say hi. I just bought a 2013 2dr Golf R Mk6 with 54k on it. I'm very excited to have this car. My dream car is a newer Scirocco but as you guys know they aren't welcome here in the states 😞 but I decided to get the R! I paid 17k for it and I think that was a pretty good deal imo. Little cosmetic problems on the hood (white marks) but I'm going to see if I can it out on my own. The car has the Air Ride already installed from the previous owner but I honestly, have little interest in it but I'm going to drive it for a while before I decide if I want to keep it in.

      I'm excited to mod it but I'm not going to go past stage 2. I'm a novice so any advice or help is always welcome. I had a 2002 golf TDI when I was overseas so that's about as much experience as I have with VWs.

      It could just be your post count. Otherwise you would want to upload somewhere like Imgur and use their BB code link!

      Sorry for the late reply. I've been visiting family on my leave. Right now, I'm not stateside but I will be moving to the Los Angeles area. Here is a shot at posting some pictures:


      EDIT: Didn't work but here is a link to the Flickr I made.

      Does anyone know anything about working with an Air Ride suspension? It was previously installed and yesterday the controller/gauge is showing the the ride height on the rear passenger side low (it rubs now). I am clicking the controller button to raise it up and the air tank/compressor just clicks and nothing happens. What would i need to do to fix it?
