But they did comment that the ring mode may be suited to UK roads. That's what was interesting to me.

That's only that dcc on soft is better suited to UK roads....

While soft soaks up the bumps it also introduces wallowing, which to me is not what I want. I don't want to feel like I am at sea in a storm (I had a Renault 5 once that was like that) but equally I don't want to be shaken to bits (like the 128ti did). Somewhere in between is what you want and I'm leaning towards that's actually what non dcc actually gives you... Minus the bragging rights of ring mode of course.

I'd be interested to see where you think the ride of a non DCC GTi sits in the range of a DCC car?

Is a standard car's ride equal to the 'comfort' setting or about half way?

Well there are lots of settings. As you can see in the photo I took below, there is no normal any more, comfort and sport are the two profiles... And in individual mode you can go softer or harder than those two or in the middle. I'm currently trying a middle setting today. I'd guess that like the mk7, this is about the same as non dcc.

Quick, cancel your Clubsport orders and buy an R as it’s superior for driving because it launches better  :rolleyes:

Club Sport looks much nicer from the front and the R looks better from the rear....

Buy both, cut them in half and glue them back together.

The R with Performance Pack maybe. The Clubby isn’t too shabby from the rear in the flesh.
And from side on? The R side skirts don’t look quite right to my eyes, can’t put my finger on why.

I agree ref the side skirts. They kind off look like an afterthought.

Spot on with the side skirts. I think part of the issue might be that they’re body coloured. Add extra width and height to the car visually.
