Re: GTI and GTI plus owners experiences

The joke usually goes 'waiter there's a fly in my soup...' However annoyingly I have noticed a very small white one in my headlight unit, South African in origin? Its squished one inch or so down from the top and has made a halo type mark visible along with the body against the dark background. Sent...

Re: New GTI + delivery

The red inserts look hideous in pictures and videos but are more subtle looking in real life and have a very slight metallic sheen.
I thought I'd not like mine but I'm happy with them and they add a dash of colour/ interest to a typical dour vw interior.

Re: New GTI + delivery

Great news Trantor,
You'll love the bigger, smoother car feel.
The 6C is nice but the new one is a definite improvement.
Enjoy!!

Re: GTI and GTI plus owners experiences

Had that once with my old 6C. Drove tech guy around.. no problem as I'd reported, dropped him off and on the way home it started again.
Was tempted to pull over and beat the car with a large branch in a Basil Fawlty type of way. [emoji16]

Re: GTI and GTI plus owners experiences

Three weeks of ownership and I get many compliments regarding the car and even from strangers.
Passengers notice the smoother ride compared to my old 6C. (Which i believe the garage sold within a week, was a nice car)

Re: New GTI + delivery

Didn't want to pop balloons but don't get too excited about the exhaust. All rather subtle.

Re: GTI and GTI plus owners experiences

Just to add it would be boring if we all liked the same thing.
I enjoy my GTI, always had one.Could have better but it does me. I have no intention of chipping it, wrapping it, detailing it, changing the tyres, or morphing into a boy racer.

Re: GTI and GTI plus owners experiences

On the 6C the remote would open the windows and fully retract the roof all at the same time.
On the new model it just tilts the roof, unlocks car and unfolds mirrors.

Re: GTI and GTI plus owners experiences

SRGTD- Yes, I had a friend observe my car as I did various manoeuvres. He noted the dual purpose fog/cornering lights. It was to determine whether the lower lenses worked as cornering lights and discovered that they were probably dummy. (Thought I'd mention it just in case I actually had a malfuncti...

Re: GTI and GTI plus owners experiences

Can the rear indicator bulbs be replaced with LEDs, has anyone done it?
I prefer the 'clipped' on/off with LED.

Re: GTI and GTI plus owners experiences

Looking at the lighting unit in the front bumper I have realised that the led looking lights that function as drl's on lower spec models have absolutely no function on a GTI. I had hoped that they were led cornering lights.
