Anyone own a mk7 r? What are they like as a daily? Fancying a change of car and going to get something after my holiday. Alot of these on the market atm asuming its due to lease deals being up. But what are they like to live with? Will runing costs be inline with my current ed30? Any other suggestions would be welcome budget of around 25k tops

I test drove one when I started looking about a year ago.

Was a really nice car, good spec, handled well, sounded good etc...but there was just something missing for me.
Couldnt really figure out what it was and ended up going for a 2012 RS3 instead and so glad I did.

For the 25k money (obviously dependant on how much driving you would do for mpg etc.) you could get RS4/5s or low mileage RS3s as well.

I'm averaging about 25mpg day to day driving about the town 10 mile round trip to work.
Motorway runs I've had it up around 35mpg and on proper hoons had it down aroun 12mpg :laugh:
