    Sub's Golf R

    This is the first time I have made a diary for my car. I thought it will be a good idea since haven’t done one on my previous cars.

    I came from a JDM car background, I think most people start off with Jap cars and move across to Euro for the more grown up version. Before the R, my previous car were WRX, STI, EVO 8MR, Civic, AE86 and the most road presence car i ever had to date was a white R34 GTR VSPEC II. I have stop playing/ modding cars in the last 2 to 3 years. It was due to financial reason and also just got sick of the hassles with owning a attention seeker so an Audi A4 2.0 Quattro had serve me during the time.

    Took delivery of the R on the 30th of August and since then I have been driving it to work everyday. I usually just catch public transport. The R is a great car, imo the best value for money for a sport sport car in the market. The only thing I dont like is the fast gear change in D mode but the manual mode does make up for it. I wonder if the DSG flash would solve that problem.

    Nice car and colour. I'm partial to black but you could always go ... orange ala GT3 RS or colour-code them to your car.

    I love the GT3RS angle. I'd go down that road for sure. It'd look tough as.

    Interesting, I might do a photoshop and see how it turn out but I think it would be a little too bright...
