2024 Black Golf R mk8-3 issues I believed I wouldn’t like nevertheless… | VW Vortex

…after receiving automotive/seeing in individual and every day driving for 90+days…I truly actually like:

1-Infotainment, Haptic Contact Buttons

2-Exhaust(Sound & Ideas)

3-Clear Indicators on Aspect Rear View Mirrors

1-After watching/studying each piece of content material, overview, article I might prior to buy the one factor that I believed for certain could be a ache within the ass was the infotainment and the haptic buttons. Nonetheless after residing with the automotive I’ve perhaps by chance touched the local weather management button below the touchscreen two occasions in @ 90 days of every day driving. I’ve NEVER by chance turned the heated steering wheel on(in critiques these are two frequent gripes). I can not communicate for the prior 12 months fashions and their software program however the 2024 model out of the field is simply as snappy as my iPhone 15 professional(clearly there’s a slight delay of a beat when choosing podcasts and utilizing the FF/Rew however that’s to be anticipated on most wi-fi connections)

I additionally like how clear the cabin appears to be like aesthetically and the futuristic vibes. I actually really feel like I’m driving a automotive constructed for 2024

2-Exhaust-Earlier than I had even bought the automotive I used to be on the cellphone Two occasions able to buy a Milltek cat again as a result of I believed I might need extra QUIET choice. I’m actually unsure why I didn’t pull the set off both time. Dialog went down one other path or no matter 🤷🏻‍♂️
I’d been out of the VW scene for over 10 years and in that point “Pops & Bangs” turned a factor(within the early 00’s on VW Vortex I NEVER heard something about “Pops and Bangs” & “PPF” & “Ceramic Coating” for that matter). So I wasn’t certain how I’d really feel anbout them. Had been they going to be “Rice”(to make use of retro VW Vortex vernacular)?

After all of the destructive opinions I noticed concerning the suggestions I didn’t even think about that I may very well like them in individual.I typically don’t like chrome. Nonetheless on a black automotive a couple of hits of Chrome can look good IMO. With the Chrome “R” & “VW” Badges & the Chrome hits contained in the housing of the headlights. I truly like the best way the guidelines circulation. I even like their form😀.

RE-Sound-For what I would like at this level of possession the sound is ideal. Particularly with the flexibility to pick out what sound you need. And I’ll admit the “Pops and Bangs” are fairly satisfying after getting going after which letting off the gasoline. For me, far more could be overkill and never as satisfying. They’re like a little bit reward after stepping on it after which getting again all the way down to a standard pace😜

3-I didn’t just like the silver Mirror caps on video/photographs and I didn’t like them in individual both. I had bought Black caps weeks prior to buying automotive and I’m glad I did. I additionally thought that I might need/have to tint the clear indicators as properly. Esp since I had additionally already bought the black/clear Euro taillights. So I had a set of smoked Badgeskins on ice. After I had the Euro tails put in I utilized the Badgeskins I had for the rear of the automotive(bumper reflectors & third cease gentle)& that seemed nice. Then I utilized a smoked pores and skin to one of many rear view mirror indicators and realized I truly most popular the inventory clear indicator lense to the smoked. On the Black automotive w/tinted home windows, and many others I feel there’s a positive line between simply sufficient & an excessive amount of. IMO the clear lenses circulation a lot better with the Euro tails/IQ Lights & the Inventory IQ headlights. I feel if the aim is to fully black out every little thing…it really works. Nonetheless in my case I feel the minor hits of chrome and clear lenses break up the black simply sufficient to make each circulation and pop

PS-2 issues I believed I wouldn’t like in movies/pics that my opinion Did NOT change:

1-The aforementioned Silver Rear View Mirror Caps(I feel they appear higher on different colorways. I respect their custom…however simply don’t like on Black)-Like I stated above, I had them Swapped out for Black Caps

2-The Orange Entrance wheel Aspect Markers-I had them swapped out for Euro Tuning Smoked Aspect Markers they usually look far more clear
