Nice spec - I do like the 19" Pretoria wheelsThese are the options I will be looking at...
Special metallic - Lapiz blue £610
Winter pack - Golf (when ordered with Bi-Xenon headlights and leather upholstery) - £250.0
Dynamic chassis control - £830.0
19" Pretoria alloy wheels - £895.0
Dynaudio sound pack - Golf SE/GT/Match/R-Line - £545.0
Vienna leather - Black + 12 way electric adjustable driver seat + heated front sport seats + lumbar support - £2395.0
Anyway, would love to be kept updated with ongoing views on the car, and, heaven forbid, fuel economy, lol.
From my own experience of a test drive in a 2013 m135i the R feels more planted and direct on the road. The chassis and steering give more confidence than I found in the old m. Maybe the new m135i has improved I need to test drive one
I'm no expert in turbo lag vs no lag so can't answer that one myself.Is there any turbo lag or is it pretty much torquey all the way through?
Source : http://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/new-cars/vw-golf-r-vs-audi-rs4-comparisonThere is no lag and its sound is so clean and cultured that you’d think there was nothing interrupting the flow of its gases from combustion chamber to outside world.............the wall of torque maintains thrust regardless
