GTI mk7.5 running costs
« on: 06 January 2019, 20:09 »
Thinking of taking the plunge - what can I expect for typical running costs with regards to tyres? Does it churn through a pair of fronts in 10k? I’m used to getting 20k+ out of mine, albeit in my 150ps Audi A3.

It depends on the tyres, driving style, alignment and probably other factors I haven't considered. For me, I got 20k miles out of a set of 4 by rotating them every 5k miles or so. That was for Pirelli 19s. I replaced them with Michelins at a cost of £720 and they are proving to be a much better tyre, if I can get the same mileage out of them I'll be very pleased. Servicing is very reasonable and economy I think excellent but would of course depend on many factors. My long term average at the moment is 35mpg, 30+ on steady commuting, 40-45 on a good long motorway run, up to 50 in the right (read boring..) circumstances. The GTI is not an expensive car to own but very rewarding :smiley:

Not many Mk7 owners venture beyond the Mk7 section of the forum i'm afraid. You may generate more responses if you post your questions here;-
