DTD its 1900 quid more for a clubby vs a GTI DSG.

£31,845.

For that you get what?

Clubby spoiler and decals, lowered, 300bhp (~60 more), nicer seats.

Tempting.

Better brakes too; perforated discs and the GTi logo on the calipers.

So on the face of it, I think you get more than 1900 quid's worth really. Just a shame it still has the boggo swastika wheels  :sick:

If it had some better 18's as default, they'd never sell a normal GTI.

For anyone that really can't live with the factory 18's, it may be worth considering something like this;

https://clptuning.co.uk/product/racingline-cup-edition-alloy-wheels/

They're OEM-ish and only slightly more than the cost of adding the factory 19's. They're lighter than the factory 18's too, you shouldn't then need DCC and they won't count towards the luxury VED threshold. Plus you could keep the original wheels pristine for selling on later.

I think you've got a winning solution there.

And they aren't bloody diamond cut either.

I reckon those would look bob on for a clubby.

Nice thinking!

Wasn't there a post on one of these threads about the Golf R 19" option being available in black as opposed to Diamond cut at some point? Or have I just made that up.

Yep, they're still on the German configurator but without pictures.

Available in Ireland too, so they should be an option for us at some point?

These are only Team Dynamics Pro Race wheels with the nasty logos deleted around the rim. Probably cheaper to buy from other resellers with discount codes when they come up. TD wheels are usually factory order so you can easily spec the correct centre bore etc.

Good suggestion for those looking to save cash. I'm not keen on the logos though, and I can't find the TD branded version in anthracite 🤷‍♂️

You can request the deletion of the logos when ordering. Somewhere like Demon Tweeks would probably be able to spec them exactly how you want them with colour, bolt seatings and centre bore.
One benefit of the Racingline ones are that they take the original VW bolts I think (I might be wrong)

I had a set of anthracite ones on my mk6 GTI that were pretty much to Racingline spec but were ordered elsewhere.
