VW Arteon 4Motion R Line 280

Recommended Posts

Hi Anil,

 

Long time no see ! 

 

Looks like an A7 to me ! Just stick on an Audi badge, no one will know its a VW around your area !!

 

The black wheels ...  nope! Get some nicer ones on and lower it 6 inches!

 

Cheers, Dennis!

Nice,  is that an R-Line and which engine do you have?

Detuned Golf R engine at 280bhp.

 

After taking the GTR to near 600bhp, you simply cannot use it anywhere.

 

280 is fine. :cool:

I wanted silver tbh but this came up locally and deal done. The pot holed area I live in doesn't lend itself to a drop but never say never.

I'm not a fan of black wheels either but they look good on that. 

 Thanks

I looked at the S7 and this at the time. 

Loved the S7 but hardly any I was looking at had adaptive cruise control. This ticks a lot of boxes, plus modern tech.

In Drive mode it is easy to hussle. Sport mode is very quick but not thrashy. It actually sounds very meaty for a 4 pot but can never match a 6 cylinder.

It has a fake sound actuator that fills the cabin with a V8 sound. Its nice but a novelty.

This is car has nearly every option except acoustic glass. Seriously loaded and was 4k cheaper than the used S7s I was looking at. Expect it to depreciate like s stone thrown off a cliff!

 

Ps. It still has 4 rear exhausts but you wouldn't know :D

Hi Anil

 

Good to see you back on the forum.

 

I like these for two reasons: One they are rare beasts on the road and two it is a practical and fast car. For a 280bhp four wheel drive fast family machine they are quite a bargain second hand with less than 10k miles.

 

Cheers R

Cheers R.

 

I think I got a decent deal, and try not play with depreciation in my head.

Rare indeed do a complete sales flop. :)

People won't spend the premium over a Passat. However, it a very different car.

Mine is the right spec, and new, at £47k on the road.

Mine had 7k miles as a director's car and got a decent discount. They serviced it then, prior to delivery and it's next service (12 monthly but was on flexible. Too long for me) is tomorrow (£240 all in). Relief after the GTR :grin:

 

I love the exclusivity for now.

However, struggling to find anyone decent to dechrome it :rolleyes:

When seen in the flesh, they look great but I do prefer silver. Dealer couldn't find a local drug dealer with silvers to do the swap ;)

I did consider the Arteon, but the seats are not that great. Lovely looking car though. There was an Arteon with 1,500 kms innthe VW dealer in Arras in black, four wheel drive, black wheels as new. I sat in it. €36,750 Timing was wrong for me though.

 

Similar front to the Talisman
