MY13 Candy White R-Line

Hi Guys!

Had my R-line for over a year now and its a great car to drive! It's the 1.2 TSI version and for a small turbo charged engine, it's very nippy! Since owning it, i've had such a blast and it's been excitement everyday... looking forward to driving to work and coming home from work.. best part of the day lol.

First day i got it at the show room!

Anyway since owning the car, as usual i can't help myself but fiddle with the car as it's not really yours until you make it yours!

I started by trying a few performance mods which included Forge Motorsport Dump valve and a oversized pod filter..

These made the car run absolutely crap and constantly brought up lights on the dash. It also reduced power i found and in the end, i found running stock to be the most efficient.

But of course i wanted more power so i looked around the net for a few companies to do remaps but since the car was still fairly new, there wasn't much available. However over on another forum i found big fish tuning run by a guy called John who sorted me out with a remap. Power hike and torque was increased to about 138bhp but dont have a RR printout as i got the RR done elsewhere. The car now feels much more aggressive in 1st and 2nd and overtaking on the motorway is a doddle even in 6th gear.

Usual upgrades with the 6R including:

GTI top and bottom grills,

Bonnet bra,

LED side lights and Fogs,

Plastidip wind mirror caps,

Eibach Pro Sport springs 30mm/40mm drop,

Euro Sport Exhaust system (Backbox with mid section removed)

The exhaust system sound awesome! It's probably one of the best things i enjoy hearing everyday. Even though its not a DSG gearbox, if you change gear in certain RPM's and especially on overboost the car will pop and let off a DSG fart lol. I've done a few videos which can be seen here:

Need to do a new video soon as i've since had a tune to take into a count of the exhaust system.

And finally my latest purchase was a set of Replica VW Projector Bi-Xenon headlights with 6000K HID's.

Next i'm thinking maybe a new set of wheels.. i did see some VW motorsport alloys in black for sale awhile back but unsure if i want to go for 17's.

It's worth the journey! Plus it'll be a good cruise lol. I've just messaged him regarding re-tune prices and RR. If you change your mind, let me know.

Aup mate, just bought my 5door rline and I'm on about doing the same mods as you really, I'm just wondering how much the exhaust cost you and did you fit it yourself?

Nice looking cars these.

I would personally prefer it without the stickers and bra as I think these look great when they're clean and smooth. However I don't think it looks bad with them on.

Veeeery nice. Decent power gains too, have you done a 0-60 run after the remap and exhaust?

My R line is covered in stickers so I don't mind them :P

I've considered the bonnet bra, but I'm concerned that it'll mark the paint underneath, something I've been told by a mate.

I put a bonnet bra on my GTi when I first got her and after a week I took it off as it left a layer of grit and dirt under it that was eating at my paint!

Want those headlights on my GT, how much for them and did you fit them yourself, and coding needed?

They aren't OEM ones, they are reps by a company called XenonZ with a HID kit fitted. I think they used the OEM housings though and LED's cos they look identical.

That looks really nice, I like the number plate placement and I think it looks a lot better without the bra. Out of curiosity what size are the wheels?
