Hey guys!

I've been lurking around this forum since I picked my baby up in February this year just before lockdown!  She's a 2017 7.5 GTI in Tungsten Silver (amazing colour!). Came with DSG and Tech Pack. I'd have like the PP but there were literally none available in Ireland at the time.

It's my first Golf, never mind GTI. I've had plenty of cars over the years from a 2 door STi Impreza, to a Polo, a Passat, Passat CC, Audi A7 and last car before the GTI was a brand new Peugeot 3008 GT Line 1.5 diesel. I went from the A7 to the 3008 (trying to be sensible) and hated it!! Sold it 6 months later at a massive loss and picked up the GTI. Best move yet!!! 😁

I love everything about the GTI so far. I miss the AWD of the A7 but I didn't want an R.

I've read more post here than I care to admit but you guys are a collective wealth of information. I've taken plenty of tips and advice over the past number of months so thanks for that.

I hope to contribute over the next while now that I've my first post out or the way.

I'm trying to share images but not familiar with the format so hopefully it works.





Till later,

Maximus

Hi Watts,

Thanks for that, I'll try it again next time. I don't think I've posted any images to forums since Photobucket stopped working.

Hi folks,

Here's my mk7.5 DSG just before I picked it up early in 2020:


I have some VW history having previously owned a steel grey mk5 GTI (DSG) and a tornado red mk7 GTD (manual). The latest addition is unmodified but after a year i'm starting to get the itch :)

I like the parkers (although I see they aren't to everyone's taste) but having noticed how much the rear is tucked in a set of 19s (or spacers) may be on the cards.

Hi @Clive

Nice colour! Agreed on the Parkers, they are way too far into the arches, looking for spacers myself

Miss-priced as a 2018 model so got a pretty hefty discount!

Cheers! Regret not going for some paint protection early on, she will definitely be with me for many years to come.
