Very pleased with it, am up to about 80 miles now. Will get chance to take it out in the morning but then got a mates 40th bbq and on Sunday am at really retro show with the Mk2. Then work and and away for a few days, going to have to wait to get some miles on it.

Quality of mVS detail is great, I’ve never used a detailer before though. Can’t fault the service of Joe at TL Darby or Ian the detailer. It’s only the 2nd time I’ve bought a new car, 1st being the Up Gti last year from inchcape Cheltenham. There was nothing bad about their service as such, delay was VW but had to keep chasing for any updates, whereas Joe has always been first with the contact and is a VW fan too.

Paid a quick visit to Caffeine and Machine, wonder if I was the first TCR? No prize 🤣


Both my wife and I purchased our Gti's from Joe at TL Darby also our daughters UP Gti.  We will be heading down to Caffeine and Machine soon in the up Gti. Is it as good as they say?????

Didn't you test drive it?  :laugh:

Yes we had the TCR for the day to test it. very nice it was to.  Is a visit to Caffeine and Machine worth it????

Sorry, I was making a bad joke, pretending that I thought your question "Is is as good as they say?" was referring to the Up! GTI.

It was a terrible joke. We need a tumbleweed gif right now...

I’m really interested to know how owners find PCP, I’m looking at taking out PCP on a new Golf GTD or R-Line. I do about 20k mike a year. Anyone here using PCP?

As long as you estimate your mileage accurately...which is pretty hard to do. It should all work out pretty well

Think you have this covered already, you have tried to take a look and it's not obvious what to do next so why not use your warranty than guess any further? Not heard this as a common problem since mk4 days.

The search at the top by default searches in whatever section you are in, so if you go to http://www.golfgtiforum.co.uk/index.php?board=128.0 then use the top search box it will only search within the mk7 GTD section.

Hi Ben and welcome.
You might want to start a fresh thread with the specifics of your shortlist to gauge opinions here.
Loads of people here use PCP and it’s prolific through the industry as it’s easy to tailor to an individual.
There are members here that are very experienced with PCP. As a means of financing a car it needs to be stacked up against PCH and bank loans, with the current low interest rate on PCP for Golfs it probably makes a good case for itself right now.

The new wheels and the spoiler suit the car perfectly Bobby. Good choices :afro:
The car now sits so well.

Cupra Ateca  is nice, a little quicker than a GTI. Seem to be some good deals on them too

Seat/Cupra need to sort their marketing out. If you try and configure a Cupra Leon ST, you get an image of the car with a Seat badge on the bonnet/boot.... The Ateca looks to have it right, to be fair. It ain't quite Toyota/Lexus (yet).

The current Cupra does have a Seat badge, doesn't it?

The next iteration won't

Yes, the current Leon Cupra is still badged as a Seat - albeit the colour of the Seat logo on the front grille, tailgate, steering wheel and the centre caps of the wheels are now copper coloured rather than chrome.

From what I can see, the Cupra Ateca has a Cupra badge and the Cupra Leon ST has a Seat badge.... Looking at a youtube review of the Ateca, there are also still a few 'Seat' bits in the info system. Perhaps I am a bit harsh given that they are in the process of changing over but I thought it would be a bit slicker.
