Picked the car up this week.

Delighted with the spec combination on it really like the colour contrast of the dark blue against the red accents on the lights and grille as well as the Art Velour interior.

Getting used to the drive in comparison to the Fiesta ST I had before, the turn in on the Golfs OEM rubber  is not as precise as the Fiesta ST  but the engine note and interior are a big step up.

I’ve seen a lot of discussion about the 19” ride requiring adaptive suspension - so far I’m happy with the standard set up - I don’t find it overly firm , less firm than the Fiesta and the 911 we had till last year .

Hopeful to find out more about it this weekend on a drive out in the Scottish Highlands.

So 4 weeks in with the GTI, I’m delighted with it and as it clicks round to 1600 miles after a 600 mike round trip to visit some friends last weekend and watch a stage of the Malcolm Wilson Rally it covered ground brilliantly on some pretty wet motorways.

The Adaptive cruise control worked really well and the TFT screen works well and I’ve kind of settled on the Nav in the centre- I would like it to allow you to show the nav in the middle when Apple CarPlay is showing the map on the centre console.

I bought one of the thick rubber mats for the boot as recommended on this forum and was really pleased by the quality and the thickness.

The standard stereo is ok in this type of car as the exhaust note shines through on twisty sections.

A very happy Mk7.5 GTi customer it’s an excellent modern day hot hatch.

Next step is to get the car booked in for a GTechniq protection at the detailer I use- looking forward to the results.
