Boot's too small. Not sure I'd get my cricket kit in that.
My reaction to this car is like in that 80s kit Kat ad- I'm not sure if you remember. Pop group play their demo tape to the record company exec. His response- " you can't sing, you can't play, you look awful.... you'll go a long way"

Did you order without a test drive?

Yes, sort of....anyway I'm excited!

Ps the final straw in an only slightly relevant way was volkswizard and his s3 vs m135i review.

When the s3 can't cut it...

I saw this video tonight and it’s making me sway more towards bmw next time too. It’s the interior for me. It actually looks better built on camera. I know that sounds odd!

I’m just gutted that the forum is losing so many great members.

Full write up needed though Fred!

I am sad to say I will be shortly leaving this forum. I agree with most of this thread, I have been waiting for the Mk8 Gti for a year and I am not impressed, mainly the price and cost cutting removal of basic switches. I have a 128ti hopefully arriving next week. Cheaper, better inside, more power and torque. PS I am also an ex Exonion. Went to Vincent Thompson School. That will be a test for you.
