The Mk7 GTi is better in almost every way than the MK 6


Great finds on the reviews. The above quote is good enough for me!!

Exactly why I've gone for the GTD. I found my previous 2012 Scirocco 2.0 Tsi DSG boring and I'm sure the latest Golf GTI will be the same. My opinion sorry. It's not an exciting engine

Because the slower diesel will be better??  ;D  The ONLY reason imo that anyone would go for a GTD over a GTI is economy which is no bad thing but buying a diesel because you think the petrol engine is boring is daft! Perhaps a different marque would have been better? And cheaper!

I hope this thread doesn't detract and become a discussion about diesel vs petrol. I'm more interested in member views on the points highlighted in quotes from the reviews please.
On order: Golf R 7.5 DSG three door in Lapiz Blue. Gloss Black mirrors, 90% tint and a rear view camera (just in case)

You are of course entitled to your opinion, which is why you're purchasing the diesel. But saying the GTD will be more exciting than the GTI is the funniest thing I've heard in ages  :grin: :grin:

Back on topic, you could call most cars boring and lacking in excitement if you wanted to find an angle to support that theory.  A 911 C4 is dull as you like compared to a 911 C2 because the 4 wheel drive makes it 'too safe' as the car corrects nearly every driver error.....But it's still an awesome car!!

How many of us are driving these cars to the limit like evo testers. If we want our 'back ends' sliding out round roundabouts, we'll buy a cater ham, or a vauxhall.  It seems as tho th new golf does everything I want it to, and the alternatives for the money don't.

I live my life between 1-3k revs which is where my Sciricco was boring and the GTD will flourish.  Have any of you lived with big power diesels?

Big power diesels? What's that got to do with the GTD?  :evil:
