lol…well that was fun!

now you need a [email protected]$$ license plate to go with that “ahem” interesting chassis number 😎
My license plate is already "REXAROO" which is our dogs nickname. Who happens to be a black, obnoxious, kind of a pain in the ass to handle but lovable and very, very good boy.

Oh, and my VW Golf R is "BADGOLFR" hehe

Well, slight change of plans but I ended up buying a gorgeous black 2019 tech pack R with the carbon interior. Chassis KR666 :devil:

I didn't think I would like the black but it's quite nice in person. Why is the chassis number 💩? I'm not a religous man 🤣

Good for you! Be well and Enjoy was the ride! 👍 I personally couldn’t do it, I was born on Friday the 13th at 1:13 pm (13:13)! I have enough strikes already!

What Charlie said...and what happened with the Ruby Red one?
Guys, I think he should’ve put up a sign that read “Gone Driving 🏎💨”.

Wherever he is, we know he has a smile on his face. Godspeed good sir. Godspeed.

Your lack of faith and understanding what that number represents doesn’t make it not so…Just sayin’.
I’m not going to have a theological discussion but many would be very uneasy with that chassis number, me included.

Beautiful car, any back story?
Not really. An older gentleman owned it along with some other cars in his collection and it was just too much for him apparently. The brakes still seem new and tire tread doesn't have any indication of being on a track, not recently anyways. Car has under 5k miles in any case

What Charlie said...and what happened with the Ruby Red one?
A member here kind enough to go and look at it for me had some great things to say about it but enough bad things to push me away. The Ruby Red was a 2018 with 14k miles - this is a 2019 with 5k miles for only around 12% more in terms of cost than the 2018. So 12% got me 1/3 of the mileage, gen 2 voodoo, solid brake rotors, carbon interior, B&O sound, etc. And it was local so I didn't have to spend money on transport. Just seemed like the right thing to do.

Guys, I think he should’ve put up a sign that read “Gone Driving 🏎💨”.

LOL just been super busy at work. I've actually been avoiding driving it for now - the only downside to this particular car was that the 5k miles it has been driven on was with no PPF/stoneguard. The bottom part of the bumper could use some refinishing if I wasn't so particular. But yeah I'm having the entire front end covered next week.

I'm not getting into this.

Congrats on the car! Beautiful and I’m all about buying the newest car that you can get.

When you say the bottom of the bumper, are you meaning the underside of the splitter? If so look at ScrapeArmor and Sliplo.

Thanks!

And no - the bottom most painted part I guess you could say. Underneath the bottom grille and above the splitter. It's a small area that could easily be refinished especially with a colour like shadow black

Got it. I’m amazed the previous owner didn’t have the slightest bit of paint protect installed before driving 5k. Especially with a black car.
