Nice car, well demonstrated, some reasonable suggestions for tweaking but she would give me a sore head, listening to her! Where can I get her lease deal?

Agree with her on the side stripe / decal. Such a lame effort by VW. Why not extend it into the rear door and have a CS logo (like the MK7 did and the TCR did). A CS logo - or even a GTI logo - on the seats would have been a nice touch too.
Coming soon - MK8 GTI Clubsport.

You can see her with the GTI here:

And I am asking the question why she'd want a manual clubby after the hash she made of that lol

Also the GTI video shows some pops... and she said the clubby in Special mode has fake pops and bangs????? wtf!

LOL they all think that their skills at three pedalling are superior to a computer.... but either proved wrong or acknowledge that most of the time that has zero use.

And yet a nation so well know for its love of a slush box had so much clout demanding a manual, BMW made US market M5s with a stick for 2 generations of car after we were told tough tits.

Just watched that.
A bit too much collagen going on there methinks. But enough about the car...  :whistle:

As said, some good ideas around the graphics but I think it’s been toned down deliberately so the Ed45 has somewhere to stamp its mark. Then maybe a light facelift in a few years will see the Clubsport graphics changed. I actually don’t dislike the Clubby side graphics as is but there’s room for improvement. And certainly on a white car I’d agree that a black roof would be nice. I liked the black roof on my Ed40 and TCR, chavvy or not.

Despite having rubbish hand/eye coordination I still prefer a manual box too. Yes the DSG can be faster but generally it’s slow witted in give and take driving, and there isn’t a setting to suit my driving style which would sit between Normal/Comfort and Sport. I really can’t be arsed with the paddles. I appreciate I’m in the minority.





Another good vid by hair-in-a-bun man here showing off a fully loaded R.
I think he likes it.
