I think it depends what you like, I prefer heated seats, and the sound system (Harmon Kardon) and reversing camera.

If you get 19’s make sure you get DCC suspension to make it more compliant.

Akro exhaust is great but really expensive option so if it’s included that is good.
Cars and parts for sale / Wanted: MK7 Silver GTI badge (front)
« Last post by dfm on 27 May 2022, 19:47 »

As above,

I actually only need the "I" which I think I managed to jet wash off this evening  :cry:

It is for a standard GTI without the performance pack.


EDIT: I was so annoyed I went back to the supermarket jet wash and pretty much found it right away on the floor.

If anyone does happen to have a spare front "GTI" badge let me know.

I also think it's an error with the configurator, below is a physical car with the GTI Performance Pack added, same spec as Edition 45 bar the 45 decals.

I think what the configurator is showing in the picture in terms of the 45 decals on the sides and 45 on the steering wheel is an error. However you can definitely as noted get a pack to add Akra and Scottsdale alloys and separately two tone paint with a black roof so in effect a normal Clubsport can be made the same as a 45 just without the 45 on it, bit odd really. It does take away from the uniqueness of owning a 45.

If you look at the German configurator that seems to be set up correctly.

I suspect something similar will end up happening with the R 20 extras in due course.

Only ones that fit over the original 3" pipes are the Burger Motorsport ones, so that's what I ended up fitting....

Hmm, the steering wheel already has red stitching, so its just the GTI badge on the seats.

The "high gloss" on the centre console sounds good, should help make that area of the centre console look a bit more premium (but also very scratch prone). Should be a simple retrofit too if you wanted it...

And if I read that right, lane assist / side assist will be optional rather than standard?

I've not got red stitching on my steering wheel (21 plate - May 2021)  :sad:

I only noticed this recently (while browsing ads for used GTI's) that the red stitching is absent on regular GTI steering wheels. Its only standard (up to now at least) on the Clubsport. A strange omission really!

Don’t think it is a mistake just VW maximising profits
Disappointed in this as i have a 45 due but got good discount
on it which I doubt today is available
Specifying a Clubsport to Edition 45 spec will be a fair bit more than the list price that the 45 was

Thanks for that update.
I'll update if I notice anything not operating as it should post dealer visit.
Still no word from VW about a replacement engine cover either. Blank looks all round at dealers.
Stay happy.
