Nothing wrong with the jacara. On my mark 2 GTI (1990 ) it was a material interior never had any issues the car was my 1st back in 2000 ( 10 years old at the time )and it was a mark 2, when it was 14 years old the material still looked good

I know it's not tartan, but the 'Rainbow' cloth on my 1990 Mk2 still looks brand new. That's 29 years old now.

My commute to work is only 9 miles on an A road with relatively little traffic at 0700 in the morning with 95 or more on the think blue trainer and still only get around 32-34mpg.
The commute home at around 18:00 is pretty much the same most days unless there is issues with unusual traffic volume, if I give it the beans then say hello to mid 20's mpg on the same commute.
My previous manual Audi S1 would be around 34-36 for the same commute and for my driving style and the above commute was actually more economical than the DSG GTI PP even when giving the beans.

I've never had any Volkswagen before and although my GTI PP was bought 2nd hand I was unsure about the tartan when deciding to buy it or not, but now if I was to buy new it's the one I would go for  :smiley:

King monkey- taste didn’t come into it when I bought my alhambra- just gotta get 4 kids and gear from one place to another!

I realise that I’m not funny. But I try.  :grin:

I didn’t upgrade due to fund but also because this was my first GTI and I thought I’d give the tartan a go. If I ever get another GTI I will be upgrading to Art Velours just for the faux leather (wipe clean) door cards and arm rest.

If they did a part leather option with tartan seats and faux leather bolsters then that would be perfect because I do actually like the tartan pattern.

Runningman- good point re leather quality- just sold my 335d after 9 years ownership- leathers looked as good as new, vw golf leathers don’t age nearly as well

The tartan really adds some character to the cabin, I love it. The MK7.5 perforated leather looks pretty good but I don't think the quality is there anymore, my A4 had really good leather, plus quite a few areas of 'leather' isn't actually leather which isn't reflected in the cost imo.

Jacara is the best cloth option of any car. It’s iconic. My edition 35 had leather and my wife asked where the tartan was as she prefers it.

Some friends of mine would get in and you could see their surprise at the tartan, but they drive mpvs so clearly have no taste.  :grin:
