After going to the Early Edition show at the weekend and speaking to several owners of brilliant examples of cars, I received a general response that the MK5 GTI / Edition30 is a better car for the money than the MK7 GTI Performance Pack. Before I take the leap into an MK7, I wondered whether anyone had owned both of these cars and would share their experiences?

Based on a test drive only:

MK7 has less steering feel
MK7 didn't feel any faster (220 manual vs 197 manual)
Dash better quality
Seats terrible for me (too big)
Obviously better technology
MK7 is much stiffer but also has better ride
Now = 2011 MK6 GTI - Reflex Silver
Past = 2006 MK5 GTI - Tornado Red and Solid Black
