Hi All,

My name is Dan, I'm brand new to the forum (obviously!!) been lurking a while.. Although a VAG fan and user for many years, I have my first Golf GTI (Mk8) on order and due any day/week/month now - it's been delayed quite a bit as ordered in November!

Currently have a 2017 VW Passat GT 2.0l diesel (190hp) which has been great for chewing up the miles, but wanted something that was going to be fun..

I look forward to chatting with you.

Hey Dan!

Just thought I'd add a hello here too.

I suspect your car is delayed because of the manual box.... they did say those would be some time before they shipped to the UK.
Current: Mk8 GTI DSG, Adelaides, DCC, HUD, HK, Winter Pack, Rear Camera.. Aka "HMS Weasel"

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

Hi and welcome to the forum.

Mk8 with a manual box, sounds good to me even though I expect you'll be in a minority.

Hi Dan, happy to hear your getting a Golf 8 GTI with manual gear :cool:
So you are waiting 4 months for the car to arrive?
Hopefully you receive it soon.
