We bought this Golf R simply out of curiosity due to its illustrious past as a VW UK press demonstrator. It was one of two cars that VW UK registered in 2009 and would have been possibly the first ever Golf R to reach the UK and be reviewed by the press (there was no Golf R before this model, only R32). It was pretty impossible to price it correctly due to the mileage and we paid a fair price for it but the refurbishment work has mounted up and we should have known better than to try and get a high mileage car to our standards as it rarely works out financially. However the new owner will be getting a very good car. The bits we wouldn't be able to fix no matter how much we were to spend are the service history, originality of panels and number of owners which are spot on which is why we continued with its refurbishment. The greatest expense was the repainting of the wings, bonnet and front bumper which was performed by Sprint Auto Services. I painstakingly stripped the front bumper down and carefully refitted it. The end result (which cost over £1000) is impressive. This was required as apart from the inevitable chips, some areas had been painted before by VW under warranty and there were areas where the lacquer was missing. The tyres are all Pirelli P Zero and have a minimum of 5mm tread remaining, we have replaced one as it had a sidewall bulge caused by a pothole. We have also replaced both rear brake callipers as they were sticking on a bit - we used the correct black type which cost a little more. I also performed the car's first cambelt and water pump change. This wasn't as a result of a tight fisted owner but more due to an ill-informed VW service advisor who assumed incorrectly that the Mk6 R, like the Mk6 Golf GTI had switched to a timing chain which doesn't require routine replacement.
As the car has never been modified and has had a sensible owner, the clutch is original and works 100% fine with a nice action, normal bite point and no slip.
