Are the 45's a limited run?

They will only manufacture them in 2021, so yes, limited by manufacture date but not quantity.

Gone: 2017 Mk7.5 GTD,manual, NavPro
Gone: 2014 Mk7 GTD, manual, NavPro, DCC

Thanks, very similar spec, ordered from Peter Cooper Hedge End. No lead time confirmed but still enjoying my ED40 so I am not in any rush.

Had another short drive in their std GTI running 19s (Adelaides) which look so much nicer in the flesh. I am really impressed with the way the MK8 drives, the response is far more urgent than the MK7.

Will keep you updated mate.

Anyone heard anything about the ED45 running more power? Looking at the MPG & CO2, both are worse than the standard Clubsport. Perhaps this is down to the wheels but the forged 19s must be lighter, say a good few KGs lighter than the standard Richmonds so wouldn’t you expect improved economy? Perhaps it’s running more power?

I've got access to a hub dyno. I'll be testing it when I get mine.

I did notice the lower mpg and also thought it couldn't be forged wheels. Assumed exhaust and intake differences caused it. Obviously no advertised increase.

I tried a normal CS and was really impressed.

Sounds odd but I've missed FWD and the mechanical feel of an ICE

I tried and was basically called a liar unless I had it in writing.

Well if you think that's bad you should hear how I was treated by another dealer. I ended up cancelling my normal clubsport order over it. Worked out for the best as prefer the e45
