Golf mk7 / Re: 7.5 PP ordered

Yep, fully expecting a wallet bashing especially over 19k per year. Still excited by it as it’s my first GTi since 2000 ( sold late 2003 ). My first GTi was in 1989 but that’s a whole different ball game

Went from GTD to Indium GTi as well and very pleased. Also went from leather to cloth and happy with that change too.

Hard not to compare Mpg and it's pretty amazing there is such a difference between two similar cars. Expect to drop 20 mpg but having said that I wouldn't change back.

Good choice.

Whilst mine isn’t a company car, I had same thoughts about diesel etc.
GTE isn’t enough, so GTI it was :)

Did a  deal on on on Friday, red 3 door which will replace the R estate

I’m going for a grey/black 3 door to replace our R hatchback. The R estate will stay for family duties.

Really excited about it, think VW have nailed it, great price and not so hard edged that it isn’t useable day-to-day.

I was tempted by black but you lose the stripes and the detailing

Similarly to you the 5 door is staying as not really used

Seems a real buzz about them which I think has been helped by the reviews

The CAR review is particularly good – http://www.carmagazine.co.uk/car-reviews/volkswagen/vw-up-gti-2018-review/

Does your dealer have a demonstrator yet?

Golf mk7 / Re: VW Driver Mag - Project GTI winter tyres

Obviously, all it takes is 1 nights frost and 1 patch of black ice for accidents to happen.

Over the years, I have noticed that sudden cold snaps with frost seem to catch people out. Many people don't appear to associate frost with danger. They don't drive according to the conditions. Many of them will be too young and/or inexperienced to realise the danger.

Back on the subject of winter tyres. Our last winter tyres were not good in warmer weather. We have both noticed a big improvement with the current Continental TS 850 tyres. In fact it was over 20C last year before I remembered to put the summer tyres back on the A3.

I am curious to see what a performance winter tyre would be like on my car. :nerd:

Normally needs a fair bit of snow to 'block' the view. I had a lot hanging down from my front plate and around the grill when I did have it in the snow.

I'd assume a combination of both. Most likely if I had asked they'd have punched me in the face  :grin:

I had this come on this afternoon - bit of a poor design - do VW expect you to stop, jump out and clear it every few miles in snowfall?   :sad:
