Doesn't particularly like the colour.  Thinks the wheels are too big and the exhaust is too loud.  Doesn't like the tartan seats or the shiny gloss plastics on the dash, which she thinks look cheap and nasty.  Thinks the ride is too firm and the car is too fast.  Says it was too expensive and the running costs will be too high.  Other than that, she thinks it's ok, but preferred my A3.

Anyone else have an other half that just doesn't get the essence of a GTI?  Meanwhile, I am slated on her Instagram page for being indifferent about the colour and presentation of her soft furnishings.   :shocked:

Well, if she likes soft furnishings, you could surprise her with the story of the Jacara plaid pattern? Gunhild Liljequist was the first woman in the design department of VW and took inspiration from her travels around Britain and William Morris through the art and crafts period.  :tongue:

For me, it begins and ends with colour. Nothing else seems to matter.....

On the day we purchased our GTI we also test drove a C Class Mercedes. I was certain she would of gone for the posh styling and fanciness of the C Class. But after driving them both, she said she preferred the GTI.  It was a shock to me, but I'm not going to question that  :grin:

But then his wife would be saying that it was even more expensive!  :whistle:

Don’t you start! Fortunately she only goes in my car once or twice a month. She has her own and we use that at weekends for trips to shops or anywhere where the risk of a door ding is any greater than 5%.

Does any married couple actually like each other?
Red Mk6 gone replaced with a white Mk7 which has gone too. Green Mk2 here to stay.

Probably not. That’s why we have our cars for a bit if escapism spending hours detailing them at the weekend 😭😂
