Got this for my 7th gen (Mk7) VW GTI - so basically the same fit for the Golf/GTI/R. The unit does not sit flush with the opening for the cigarette lighter. That's not really my problem as it says in the description that the fit may differ depending on the car. The issue is the color. The description shows a silver color that is stilver like a dime, but the one they sent is a pewter, more on the brownish side. I'm a little taken back as it does not go with the trim in my car. The manufacturer guarantees satisfaction, so I will ask them to replace with a black one instead.
**UPDATE 8/24/2018** - Ainope contacted immediately and is sending me a black model. They do honor their 100% satisfaction guarantee. Will update my review once I get the new color. Thanks again!
***UPDATE 9/2/2018** Ainope did send me a black one as promised..thanks again. My next review update will be how long the charger lasts before it breaks.
