    Hello everyone.

    I’ve recently joined Overclockers and I’ve heard some good stuff about the Motors section.

    So my car is a Lapiz Blue 2015 VW Golf R, had this around 5/6 weeks now and loving it. Previously owned 2x Focus ST, Astra VXR, Civic Type R, 120D, Golf GTD.

    I’ve got a lot of plans for the Golf, it’s standard mechanically at the moment with only some cosmetic mods done. I’ve also set up a channel on YouTube centred around motors, mine, and others will be featuring. Support is always appreciated. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCT4cBW48RbKbkwpaQFvxJLg

    I look forward to reading some of your build threads!

    JB

    Nice choice, can see you're into fast cars...well the Focus ST, Astra VXR (in a straight line), and Civic Type R.

    Just be careful with the Golf where it is parked for your own safety, it seems a target for the more dangerous car thieves.

    Not sure what i feel is more unbelievable:
    How unashamedly you are spamming your youtube channel, or that the mods haven't banned you already.

    Why would I be ashamed of posting it?

    Morning all,

    I've had a chance to upload my photos to Imgur, so here's my car:

    As it stands at the moment, totally (mechanically) standard Golf R, 2015 model with some cosmetic bits added. De-chromed the front, including front/rear badges, added yellow R inlays to give a bit of contrast against the Lapiz Blue.

    I'm hoping to have the car full Stage 1 in the next year or so, with potential for Stage 2 in the future as I'm wanting to get out on track around the UK and Europe.

    Welcome.
    The answer to any questions you have is either 'Mondeo' or 'MX5'.

    I'll bear that in mind, will I complete Overclockers if I follow your advice?

    Oh I'm sorry I never realised we were meant to be a substitute for the Youtube comments section rather than... You know, a forum where you can get feedback and advice on your channel (because let's be honest, the only reason this thread exists is so you cangain a few subs).

    In that case, here you go:

    Wikkid ride m8, well jel, gonna beat some lambos 4 sho :D

    So in that case, if it's a forum where I can feedback and advice, why don't you propose some constructive criticism as opposed to "the videos are pretty crap tbh", of course I value opinions just as much as anyone does, but when it's one such as yours why would I take note?

    This thread isn't to gain a few subs. It will be an ongoing discussion about my car, progress, issues etc etc etc.

    I actually introduced him to the forum. He's a petrol head and thought he could attend the meets that are organised on this forum. No intentions of spamming his channel.
