Look forward to your proper review of it when it arrives....when is it due in?
If I wanted a "Golf" like car, I'd buy a SEAT..... I can't see how the Golf R even comes into the equation. It's got 50% more power, it's bigger, & it's a "Hot Hatch" boy racers car. Personally I think it's bloody vile car, the M135/140 is much more classy.

When I was going to order the F56JCW for giggles we took the dealers new F54 JCW Clubby for a spin. Was very impressed, it was a slippy greasy day and it just got on with it in a very Audi like fashion.? Very grown up and a lovely cabin. If I was looking at that size of car it would be top of the list. Not as sharp as the 3 door but I guess that's down to the extra mass and the 4 wheel drive. Another 50bhp to put it on a par with the S3/Golf R wouldn't go a miss inho.

Nothing a remap can't sort out
Difficult choice to go ahead with a remap on a new one but it's never stopped me!

I'm thinking Remus exhaust when I get it, & a Remap for it's Birthday....

250bhp should make it rather fun.

Yes! 250 will be in the "fun" category indeed. I can map mine happily to around 230-240 but thats an awful lot for a fwd with no clever diffs to keep it all in check...

Does the JCW have all4 or LSD?
