Nice spec and what i would pick too. Agree on the colour. Either reflex silver or deep black pearl are the only two i liked in person on the 8.

My Tungsten really showed off the red GTI bits and I do a like a nice silver, mine was sometimes a bit gold/beige in certain lights. Think Volkswizard mentioned how silver really works with the CS details in his review.

Just for fun - this is what I'd order:

Reflex (best colour I've seen)
19s
Winter Pack
DCC

A little under £40k as well.



Think it would benefit from better side decals to be honest. They are a bit half hearted.

Love that! I’d definitely go silver or moonstone. I’d only add 19s and dcc as I’m too tight to pay for winter pack.  :grin:

I thought £270 seems like a good deal for heated seats and steering wheel? Am I right in thinking the bog GTI has heated steering wheel but not seats?

Tbh I never use my heated seats anyway. I’ve never really liked heated seats at all. They are really good value for £270. Shame they’re not standard as I thought they’d be, like the reversing camera.

I'm waiting for the next generation of hud, what we have here is good but beyond this is augmented reality with it projecting much more data into your full view. Navigation arrows appearing on the road itself, highlighting boxes around hazards. This is in military kit now, cars eventually. The type of thing we have today is little more than the reflector gun sights used in spitfires!

Must be a balancing act. Taking some stuff off and adding other bits as standard.

They are pretty well kitted out to be fair but heated seats are a nice touch although I can only ever use them on the first setting for about 5 mins as otherwise, it's just too hot! Definitely not a necessity on cloth seats though.

KM, a clubsport is effectively a clubman race car that can be used in competition which is also road registered.

I have owned several Porsche clubsport variants over the last 20 years, hence this login which I have used for some time!

Here is the interior of my other CS, as it left the Porsche factory!



Slightly different and considerably lighter than the mk8 CS ? :)

Oh amazing Porsche btw!!

Absolutely. I’d rather have the lights than the camera and heated seats.

Guess everyone likes different things. My 330e has camera as standard and whilst it is useful sometimes, I find I'm not always using it. Lane assist is standard and had to turn it right down as I find it's a bit dangerous. Wireless car play is good and the iDrive is absolutely fantastic. Even the app is decent and I use the destination function loads where you can quickly search and send an address to the car which appears when you get in. Using the car nav has the benefit of optimising when to use electric in hybrid mode so is worth doing and it's a great system even if it sometimes likes to take odd routes!

The heated seats will come as standard in the next MY you see... Its just all about giving with one hand and taking away with the other.
