I've ordered 19" Brescia wheels without DCC on my GTI.  I sense not many people like Parkers and I'm just curious what wheels/damping setup forum members have specified.  Cheers.

You need the standard mk7 wheels on your poll. I've got them and DCC and car is great.

Standard on the mk7 were Austin.  As these are no longer available and have been replaced by Parkers, just select that.  Cheers.

From my test drives, I came to the opinion 18s don't need DCC, but it's a nice to have. 19s do.

I concur!  :grin:

go and test drive back to back, it's the only way you'll know for sure. Every has their own opinion which is subjective due to so many circumstances such as types of driving, age, threshold to comfort, area they live, types of car they are used to and are coming from... etc etc!  :laugh:
