Yes, once the tracker updated on Saturday I emailed the salesman who checked on the system and he came back with week 12. Wonder if yours will be the same 👍

Cool, thanks for the replies guys. @kmpowell - I assume that’s an option on leather only seats? Thanks again.
Yup, I’m not sure why though because AFAIK the externals have no impact on the electric internals.

Because ££££££

What a great car for a 23 year old. If I remember right I payed £600 to insure a 205 gti in 1996 ( i was 23 then). I can remember spending hours shopping for insurance. £82 per month sounds pretty good to me.

My first 'quick' car was a Cavalier SRi 130 in 1989 when I was 19. I'm pretty sure that the insurance was about £300 for me and my Dad as a named driver. Those days you went to your trusted broker who got out his big book of rates from a handful of companies to look up the premium.

That was a pretty quick car back in the day, remember being 17 and a lad at school in the year above me having one and thinking it was rather cool.


£300 then is about £750 in today’s money according to my inflation calculator. Looks like you did pretty well at 19.
It was a half day job for me yellow pages/ads in performance car magazine- phoning all the companies I could.
Mate of mine had mk2 and mk3 cavaliers- though his mk2 didn’t have an “i” badge!

Update:  He's completely smitten with the car, absolutely loves it.  On the subject of insurance premiums "back in the day" my first GTI was an 18-month old Mk1, which I bought in 1983, and from memory it cost me £165 to insure.  But that was Fully Comp. 

At the time, you could buy a GTI in any colour you liked in the UK, as long as it was black, red, or white.  Or possibly silver.  Mine was Helios Blue, a dark(ish) metallic blue, bought new by a Captain in the BAOR (British Army of Occupation in the Rhine, or something like that), in full UK spec, even the wipers were mounted correctly.  When he'd finished his tour of duty he brought it back to the UK.

 I've never seen another in that colour, but there must be some, surely?

A manual/mechanical ratchet lumbar support is standard. However, if you rely on a lumbar support then IMO it’s very poor, especially if you do long journeys. Due to this I specced the electric memory seat to get the 4-way electric lumbar support, and that makes a huge difference.

Horses for courses.  :smiley:
