Golf mk7 / Re: Tungsten Silver 7.5, cleaning afternoon.

True story: as my wife approached the new GTI she heard a young boy say in an enthusiastic voice, "Look at those wheels daddy!" He was impressed with the Parker alloys. That is an unbiased opinion!

I think most people like the new alloys. There are just a few people here who seem to enjoy putting them down at every opportunity for some strange reason.

Has anyone got a decent contact email/number for Carbon? Have tried without success previously...

I prefer the Parkers over the Austins.

Good job we don't all like the same thing, boring world otherwise.

Vid looks real good, and very nice car

Couple of observations, I hope you don't mind.

1: if you are looking out to the road on a sunny day you want the metering for light to be on the centre so the outside is visible and the inside is dark, in your vid the outside looks washed out sometimes in bright sunshine. If the metering is set on a wide setting it it may be trying to balance the inside darkness and this can impact on the image outside.

2: The camera position looks too high and makes it hard to see "down the road" on the camera, if the track has elevation this will make it even harder to see.


Love the quality of the video though looks superb.


Video in my sig shows the camera set to the seat head rest points, not better just a different angle giving more outside the window. The metering on mine was set to wide, and not the centre as i suggested above, but this is because it was a dark overcast day.

Good luck with your track day, sure you will love it...

Golf mk7 / Re: Pressed Plates - best way to fix to vehicle

Are these legal now?
As in retroreflective and everything else required by law?

Quite like look of pressed plates but as it's a company car would not want if illegal, not worth getting into trouble over looks.

100% as long as they have the UK font and are stampd with the plate manufacturers post code  :smiley:

I'm resurrecting my old thread.

I'm finding it hard to find a car in the south that meets my spec:

GTI, 64 or 15 plate, 5 door, Performance Pack, 5 door, Black or Carbon Grey with 18" wheels (not 19"), with up to 30k miles, with no options, for £19k-20k, pref with 1 owner.

It seems most performance pack cars have 19" wheels.  Maybe there is just a lack of cars the moment, it being summer and people aren't changing cars, and are on holiday. Theres a few private sale ones, but they most have loads of owners!  The dealer cars seems expensive for what they are IMHO.

There's a very nice R 2014 5dr, Dsg, lapis, sat Nav ,28k miles fish on auto trader. Asking 19995 reckon 19000 pos. Why not an R over a PP any day, believe me. At similar money.
It's been mentioned many times on here....not everyone wants an R, despite it being arguably the better all round car.
I always wanted a Golf GTI, so I bought one. If I'd wanted an R, I would have bought one of them instead.

Mate, I've had 6 generations of GTI and my R is the best, words can't describe really. My better half has a mk7 GTI which is great,but believe me If you really had the choice , no contest not just the power but the grip, traction is something else. Maybe I have a good one, all I know is I could have bought a much more expensive car, name it, but the R is all anyone would need, lottery win or not. :wink:
I sure you believe you are right but it doesn't make it so.
I really did have the choice but still chose to get a GTI, as hard is it obviously is for you to get your head round :rolleyes:

I had the choice and still chose a pp gti. As good as the R was I just felt the gti was a better car for me so not everyone goes for an R  :wink:
