It was £995 on the Mk7. I doubt there will be much of or any increase as nothing has changed to the pack.

Except the 7 speed DSG. ATM that is another upgrade from the standard GTI.
Yeah but that's a separate option.

It will be strange if they offer the 2 GTIs with 2 different DSG boxes.

I keep hoping the PP will be available sooner. It's still 7 weeks away. :cry:

This is so strange that you will wait 7 weeks to order the PP?!?. My PP will be build in 6 Weeks :)

I´m so exited about the new 7 speed DSG will work on the GTI ..

Thats realy cheap?!, why don´t all order the PP?!. In Sweden VW only sell the PP ,because of the little diffrent in price :)

I've just been comparing the pictures on the configurator of the Mk7 GTD with the Mk7.5. I opened them both up side by side and compared front, side, rear and you can see the changes. Should look ok.

Then i looked at the interior shot (looking from between the two front seats at the dash). It could just be the illustration but it seems to me that:

1) The keyhole is missing on the glovebox
2) The piano black trim around various bits of the inside is gone (round the air vents, along the top of the glovebox door)
3) The "silver" trim and GTD logo on the steering wheel is gone, in fact the steering wheel looks altogether less chunky and sporting - the centre boss is different.

Not sure this is good news... looks like penny pinching :(

Haven't looked at the GTI and R to do the same comparison, but you can if you want to - use the "performance golf" vs "new golf" to see.


EDIT - if you look at the 7.5 R you see the same steering wheel, but the GTI picture shows one more like the Mk7. In fact, if you look at a SE Nav you see the same wheel there.... I think its just a graphics f*** up.

The interior still seems missing the piano/carbon black pieces tho

The 'odd' (wrong) steering wheel on the mk7.5 GTI in the configurator was recently discussed on another forum. At that time, there was also just a 'black hole' where the gear lever should've been! :grin: That seems to have been fixed now.

I found some photos of a real new 7.5 GTD somewhere else on here and the piano black trim and steering wheel are all OK on that.

Just a website screwup it seems!

Is it now piano black trim on the dash of the GTI too? Wasn't the pre-facelift GTI a kind of grey / fake carbon effect trim?

IMO the GTI needs half leather Jacara tartan seats as standard and the R needs optional bucket seats similar to the Clubsport's.

So...

Dynamic Light assist.  On the configurator a few weeks ago, if you went for this option for £630 it also added LED lights for around £330 as well, which made little sense as the GTD/GTi come with LED's.

Now it seems if you add the Dynamic light assist, it no longer adds LED's and the extra cost, which makes more sense, unless I am missing something ?

Ordered 06/01/14.  5DR GTD DSG, Red. Park Assist | Rear Camera | Keyless entry | Dynaudio | Winter Pack | Pro Nav.
