I can see where they have penny pinched. Does it even have a gas strut under the bonnet? Must be dieselgate  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

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.

I think that's a decent spec but I'd swap the winter pack for hud. Hud let's you concentrate on driving and that's important with something like this. Nineteens and dcc is definitely the way to go unless you fancy doing some wheel swapping yourself.

The stickers... Well they are saving that for the ed45...

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 ? :)

Thanks. I meant a Golf CS. Bearing in mind the history of Porsche CS, it was an odd name for VW to chose I think, either as a Mk7 or Mk8.

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:

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.

I've driven a few cars with it but never had it on any of 'my' cars and it doesn't really bother me. I quite like the look of the centre rev dial on the AID similar to the Audi sports models so that would be fine for me.

Just think the stickers would suit better if they went all the way along the bottom. But sure there will be something extra for the ED45.

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?

Decals along the length of the car would balance it out a bit better. I reckon the Ed45 will get the R side skirts too possibly.
