    Golf R VIII - Ownership First Impressions

    I just receive my new Golf R.

    My first impression about the car: it is even better that I was expecting! It is really amazing and everything that you heard about driving the Golf R, it is true!


    My complain is about the UX. I am not talking about the screen or the touch elements but about behaviors that I am struggling.


    - Example: I can not set the default drive mode. Every time that I start the car, its set to “Sport Mode”. The sport mode is fantastic but not for a daily drive. The steering heavy and the hard suspension is really not what I am expecting for my day by day. I can keep changing it every day, but it is a very bad experience.

    - 2I would like to hear your impressions about the car.

    just to inform that I am reporting this "drive mode" inconvenience to VW quality team.

    I believe if 5 more people send an email asking for them to allow us to set the default "drive mode", they can do it by a software update very quickly.

    If you agree and can help me, please send an email to Mayra C. at vwcustomercare@vw.com asking for that.

    Thank you

    I'm going in to check out a R next week, but I think I'm going to order one anyway.
    The drive mode reverting to Sport is a big one for myself and my partner. We daily to work and I like sport, she likes comfort. But it I am running some weekend errands I'll want comfort.
    I'll pop an email off. Seems a common request so I'm thinking we'll see it in a new update.

    Hi.
    I sent an email to VW customer care on behalf of my daughters Tiguan R which also defaults to ‘Sports mode’, and for myself as im expecting delivery of my Golf R mid July.
    Fingers crossed !!

    Golf R VIII - Ownership First Impressions

    Ive had my Golf R 4 days and love it !,
    However, no spacesaver which i was aware of, but a bit surprised no jack supplied neither. My daughters Tiguan R same scenario, but a jack was supplied.
    Also, the tyre placard / sticker supplied is for 18” (225/40/1 wheels, NOT for the 235/35/19” as fitted.
    Can someone else who has one please check what’s fitted to theirs ?
    Thanks
