On the motorway I have got my Golf to do 60mpg according to google that is 4.7L/100km. In everyday driving motorway/city I can get about 55mpg which is 5.1L/100km. When I brought it it was quoted to be able to do 4L/100km on the brochure but I've never got close. it's probably possible but only if you drive down the motorway at a constant 60mph (97kph) and put premium diesel in it always. How you've managed 4L/100kph in a Golf R Id be fascinated to know?

Well, as you said, constant speed is the key plus taking advantage of the rolling idle (which means 0 consumption). In general you have to learn your car to get the maximum of it, for example I get better consumption with speeds @ 110-120 km/h and 1800-2000 rpms than going with 80 km/h with higher rpms. Also dsg7 in D mode really helps (and premium diesel, but I rarely use it).

To be honest, in the last month I am somewhere between 3.9-4.3 while returning from work (today I got 4.2), a distance of about 35 km, with 25 motorway and 10 in city.

BTW, I have the RLine, not golf R (only the looks of it :) ). Mine has the 1.6 engine, same as yours.

This must be a BayernForum trend, as I also have a VW Golf (2011) ;)

Yes Audi are probably the worst cars in terms of value for money.

Well, audi is in VW group afterall :)

I was torn between my Golf and an Audi A3, but the audi was 5000 euros more expensive with the same engine, same gearbox etc and tbh I kind of like the looks of golf mk7 R-Line more (don't call me crazy). If the other option was A4 or A3 sedan it would be different, but then I would need 10000-15000 euros more.

...and Porsche is on the brink of dethroning Audi's grip on Le Mans. They'll grab one and two spots with just a year back on business. Dammit you thought those hybrids were just for environmental advocate maggots. Now they are winning races!

Actually I have always wondered why BMW is not a major sponsor, since they share the same city with Bayern. I have always had only Bimmers and perhaps that will stay like that forever. Now I own an E39 530i from 2003, producing around 240 bhp after some light mods.
