Newbie
« on: 18 May 2017, 19:18 »
Hi all. I've got a 2017.5 Golf GTD on order. My first foray into Golf ownership and I'm moving on from a Passat as a daily driver. Considered a GTI but due to mileage and company car tax it had to be the diesel for me. We've had a Lupo and Polo on the drive in the past and my lad is currently in Golf MkIV estate (and installing air ride as we speak  :whistle:) Seems like a decent bunch on here so looking forward to getting involved.

I'm a bit of an enthusiast and have an ///m coupe as my weekend toy too:

Hi Ian, I joined today, I've got a mk7.5 GTI coming in June, build Wk 23. I checked out GTD in terms of Company car tax and wasn't much difference. I do about 10k a year business & personal combined so not massive amounts. Got a C200 petrol at moment and must admit I've got used to not having a diesel now!

M Coupe looks good, steady values on those now as well  :smiley:

Hi Jim - GTD arrives on Friday next week. Getting it through work scheme so maybe difference is because of lease company we use. And yes, m coupe values going well. First car I've ever owned that's gone up in value!
