MrBinks, how come your rear badge is chrome and not red like it should be for PP models?
I just got a 63 plate with the PP it has a chrome badge thought it was only early one that didn’t come with the red.

Get yourself in the back and get someone else to drive it over some speed bumps so you can hear where its coming from. Fold half the seats down and try it, then fold the other half down and try again - take everything out of the boot and remove the parcel shelf.

There have been too many threads where people suspect shocks only to find its something else...

Hmm wonder what this means for my order.

Ordered a non-PP GTI on Saturday and still waiting on the build info/tracker info from the dealership.  The delivery date I got given was 28th Sept  :huh:

Well, the announcement to the dealers was in mid April 2018.... I don't know when the configurator changed but almost certainly I'd say that the order will be rejected by the factory if its a brand new build and hasn't got a build date yet (which it won't...because that it 4 weeks before its built). If you are getting delivery end of September, it will have a build week around end of August - definitely after the end of July swap of production.

If they are calling off in flight production, maybe not.

Definitely go check!

Which part of "Please note , this does not fit GTi Performance model , we have a separate listing for this vehicle" does it state thats just for 7.5?? It's not that hard to read an advert is it!!

“GTI Performance” is a model name for the 7.5

“GTI with Performance Pack” is a name for the 7

It's the same car just VW changed how it was showing on the website. You don't get anything extra on the 7.5 just because it's a model name instead of a name.

@OP When you try to pull away do you just get off the clutch or also press throttle?
It will not release just with coming off clutch.

I was just thinking this the other day. I do tend to lift off clutch a bit first before dabbing the throttle. I tried changing my technique and going throttle first and it seems fine now. Has only been two days but will stick with it, hopefully that’s it.

Not sure about this recall though. Is it serious?  I’ve not been contacted.

It's a service recall as in they will do it when you pitch up for something, not in that they contact you. You can always speak to your dealer service dept and they can check for you.

Thanks All, I have already checked and now rechecked all those things and everything is locked down.

Can't tell you anything other than what I've seen on the configurator - no more 230ps engine available, only the PP at 245ps.

Any idea what’s changing?

I got lucky with the one I’m trading in.  Got an upgraded infotainment with CarPlay and engine went from 122ps to a whopping 125ps with no price increase.
