Was going to import them...or maybe the new ones will cause the old LED rails to drop in price and I'll get those instead. Either way LED rails will be my next mod.

I'm at a different VW dealership today and waiting to see what these guys quote me. I'm pretty sure they are secretly adding an ADM in and I'm bummed. Waiting to see for sure. The salesman came to show me my monthly payments and they are way high which is making me think they added it in. Will walk out if it's true.

^
There should be a price breakdown on anything after the agreed upon selling price.

-Tax, title, license plates (DMV charge) etc.

Shady salesman will distract you from the bigger picture, the total price.
I put down 50% on the R.


How'd it go?

Huh. I might be waiting for the '18s if we get the improved DSG here in the US.

Then again, I've had enough transmission problems with this Focus that I might just stay with the tried and true current DSG as opposed to rolling the dice with a first year transmission.

VWVortex classified and eBay can't even sell their stock used MK7 R at 33k, why are you guys even trying to play the dealership game? It's a great car but don't eat the depreciation of an european car if you don't have to.

Golf R's hold their value pretty well. Up here anyway the resale is higher than STI.

Not here (NY/NJ). Only reason they want MSRP for them is because the dealers here usually have 0 or 1 in stock. They sold less than 4,500 R models here in US last year and heavily discount pretty much everything else on their lots so the VW as a brand tanked in resale value.

Just observing what a 2016 <10k mile ones are selling for vs a 2017 selling at MSRP. Not saying all dealerships are still only selling at MSRP, but it's a quick $6-8k saved on a used one without having all the tech features.

I learned my lesson with buying my previous MB from the showroom floor and trading it in 6 years later, sticking with CPO on luxury brands.

Amen, CPO on lux brands is an awesome way to a really nice ride. Some of those CPO warranties are amazing (cough MB and Lexus)

Lightbulb Can we keep it on topic? Yes. Yes, we will.

Here's the deal.
Something about this car (and the Focus RS) really rub some of you the wrong way.

Golf family now features standard LED taillights, LED Daytime Running Lights (DRLs)
New 8-inch infotainment screens on SE and SEL trims across Golf lineup
Volkswagen Digital Cockpit customizable dashboard standard on Golf R
Front Assist and Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Traffic Alert become standard on more models
HERNDON, VA (April 10, 2017) — Volkswagen’s award-winning Golf family receives styling, technology and driver assistance updates across the lineup. Each refreshed model sharpens its looks and adds even more value over the outgoing version. The revised Golf family goes on sale this Fall as 2018 models. (The updated e-Golf is a 2017 model.)

Interior and Exterior Styling. The updated exterior design showcases sharper lines, with new bumpers and a new chrome grille. Radiant full-LED taillights and Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) come standard, with available full-LED headlights replacing the optional Bi-Xenon headlights in the previous models. Wheel designs and body colors are also refreshed. Interior updates include new trim panels and materials.

Technology. Infotainment systems in 2018 model year vehicles now feature larger, crisper touchscreens. Standard 6.5-inch displays replace the 5-inch screens in previous models. SE and SEL trims feature standard 8-inch touchscreens. The new Volkswagen Digital Cockpit, allowing drivers to customize the vehicle information on the dashboards, is standard on the Golf R.

Driver Assistance Systems. Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking (Front Assist) is now available on most SE trims and above, as is Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Traffic Alert. The updated version of Front Assist now includes Pedestrian Monitoring. Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Departure Warning (Lane Assist), Park Distance Control, Parking Steering Assistant (Park Assist), and High Beam Control (Light Assist) are also available on some models.

Pricing for all models will be announced closer to market introduction.

2018 Golf R

The Golf R—the most powerful Golf model ever to be sold in the North American market—is equipped with an EA888 four-cylinder turbocharged and direct-injection TSI 2.0-liter engine that produces 292 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque (achieved using premium fuel). The Golf R is available with either a six-speed manual transmission or—new for 2018 and exclusive to Golf R—a seven-speed DSG dual clutch automatic.

New features for the 2018 model year include standard LED headlights with the Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS) and LED Daytime Running Lights (DRLs); LED taillights; an 8-inch display for the Composition Media system; Start-Stop for DSG-equipped models; and the Volkswagen Digital Cockpit.

Standard features retained from the 2017 Golf R model include the 4Motion all-wheel drive system; 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels; Performance Monitor (Sport HMI); Electronic Parking Brake; Drive Mode Select with Race Mode; KESSY keyless access with push-button start; 12-way power driver’s seat; ambient lighting; automatic headlights with rain sensor; heated sport seats with leather seating surfaces; Car-Net App-Connect; Car-Net Security & Service with a six-month trial; SiriusXM Satellite Radio with a three-month trial; Voice Control; auto-dimming rearview mirror; and Climatronic.

New equipment in the 2018 Golf R with DCC and Navigation model includes an 8-inch touchscreen for the Discover Media navigation system and Front Assist with Pedestrian Monitoring. Existing equipment includes 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels with an all-new design for the 2018 model year; ACC; Blind Spot Monitoring; Lane Assist; Light Assist; Park Distance Control; DCC suspension control; Car-Net Guide & Inform with a three-month trial and the Fender Premium Audio System.
Seem like the Golf R will be getting the Digital cockpit and 7sp DSG. Also seem like DCC + Navi might be optional again similar to the 2016 model. Link provides some pictures but seem like the Golf R is the Euro spec version, but might be a good indication that we will see the better LED Taillights.

Correct, seem like there is no bump in power for the R. From what I have read the power bump is from a tune and nothing mechanical. I also believe we don't get this power bump because of fuel grade we get in the states,

So we're getting the VW Digital Cockpit standard in the R, does that mean it will be an available option in the GTI or not in the US?

2018 Golf GTI

The original hot hatch rides into the 2018 model year with a power upgrade to the base trim and a simplified lineup of four-door models: S, SE and Autobahn. The 2.0-liter TSI four-cylinder turbo now makes a standard 220 horsepower at 4,700 rpm and 258 pound-feet of torque at just 1,500 rpm (achieved with premium unleaded fuel) across the lineup. All three trims can be paired with either a six-speed DSG® automatic transmission or a six-speed manual.

The 2018 Golf GTI S has been updated with LED taillights, LED Daytime Running Lights (DRLs), a 6.5-inch display for the Composition Color infotainment system, and automatic headlights with rain sensor. New for 2018, the S with automatic transmission offers a fuel-saving stop-start feature that shuts down the engine while at a stop, and restarts automatically when needed. There’s a new design for the 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, and the S continues to offer a performance value with features such as a rearview camera, leather-wrapped multifunction sport steering wheel, ambient and footwell lighting with LED reading lights, LED fog lights, and Car-Net App-Connect.

The updated SE model now features full LED headlights with a signature red GTI stripe outlining the new design, performance brakes from the Golf R and the electronically controlled, torque sensing, limited-slip VAQ differential. A new 8-inch display for the Composition Media system brightens the cabin, and the SE also adds upscale touches like Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Traffic Alert and Front Assist with Pedestrian Monitoring. The SE trim now features Clark Plaid cloth seating surfaces, with leatherette seating surfaces as an option. A sunroof is also optional in the SE trim. As in last year’s model, the SE offers the KESSY keyless access system, Voice Control, SiriusXM satellite radio with a three-month trial, and Car-Net Security & Service with a six-month trial.

At the top of the range, the Golf GTI Autobahn adds a new 8-inch touchscreen for the Discover Media navigation system and DCC suspension control. It continues to offer a panoramic power tilt and slide sunroof, leather seating surfaces, a 12-way power driver’s seat, Climatronic, ACC, the Fender Premium Audio System, and Car-Net Guide & Inform with a three-month trial.

The available Driver Assistance package on the Autobahn trim adds Lane Assist; Park Assist; Park Distance Control; and Light Assist, which automatically dims and engages high beams depending on oncoming traffic. Summer tires are available as an option on all trims.
Seem like it does not mention it being an option

I know the virtual cockpit was Golf R only in Canada so I wouldn't expect Americans GTI will have it as an option.
