He has assured me he is only responsible for chassis development  :rolleyes:! I tried to press for a little more information on the upcoming Edition 45 GTI and was clearly informed that aspects such as interior etc are taken care off by Marketing!

So that confirms that as well, it's just stickers and an expensive exhaust  :laugh:

Yes! Does look like this more or less! I don't think we will be getting the ultra desirable Recaro wingback seats...Alcantara steering wheel...red trimmed seat belts etc etc that Volkswagen let us have on the Edition 40 ☹☹👎

I also don't think there will be any extra chassis revisions over the standard Mk8 Clubsport...

And, it doesn't seem the Edition 45 GTI will be a limited production model like the Edition 40 GTI.. 

Sorry Volkswagen, you have lost the plot here....hard for me to say this as I'm an exceedingly loyal Golf driver  :sad:

From all of the other thread, the ED45 pack is:

different wheels (possibly red spokes)
akra exhaust
some undetermined cosmetic stuff (probably stickers)

Its about 3000 euros/pounds/roubles

and then on top you can order an ED45+ pack which add cup2 tyres

which brings it to ~5000 euros/punts/zimbabwe dollars

It seems that the vehicles speced with the 19" wheels from factory have the different spring rate, hence why fitting a 19" wheel to a vehicle that was fitted with 18" wheels from factory may cause issues.

The other aspect he did stress is to get the full advantage of the Mk8 handling improvements, the Dynamic Chassis must be specced, a lot of development has gone into this with the VDM (Vehicle Dynamics Manager) and only when fitted with DCC, the VDM is fully active and helps agility.

That’s me buggered on all counts then  :grin:

Previously I’d have wanted to spec the all black Estorils but seeing that and a few other photos I think the polished versions look loads better.  :cool:


I think the two guys were discussing chicken soup btw.  :whistle:

Peter Cooper hedge end have stuck their Clubsport on brescia’s aswell to join in with the trend lol

I almost asked for another test drive to see what it rode like on 18” standard spring setup from factory but on 19”s

Black standard R in aswell which looked quite tasty

I really don’t like the look of the R at all this time. Another CS in Brescias says it all!
