Re: Back in a 6R GTi

I don't like the look of the 6c gti or the steering wheel of the mk7 generation. The mk6 style of the earlier cars are the nicest IMO. Also in terms of pricing, the 6c is still expensive compared to what is available for the equivalent price. DSG is a preference due to the amount of town driving I w...

Re: Back in a 6R GTi

Thanks for the welcome! Yes the polo gti pre-facelift is definitely one of the best all round cars for city driving. Looks nicer than the facelift and new mk10 IMO. I have missed my old 6r very much. I am hoping that with all the new information available that I can make the 1.4 tsi reliable this ti...

Re: Proud new GTi owner

Haaa, was dreading the day another Polo GTI pulled into sainsburys xD Love the wheels on your 13' plate!! I've got the GTI footrest on order so it should arrive soon. You should definitely try and retrofit a MFSW mate; makes it so much easier to scroll through the MFD and stereo

Re: Proud new GTi owner

Yeh i figured oil would be a problem because of the forced induction, still beats the mazda tho!!!

I'll stick some pics up when i get home today (at work at the moment) :)

Proud new GTi owner

Hi peepz, Bought my 2010 GTi from citygate south Ruislip 3 weeks ago with 12k miles clock for 13,990. So far I'm absolutely loving it but I would like some advice on running the car. My previous car was an RX8 which required a lot of attention and I'd like to know if its the same with this? At the m...
