Re: Difference between 18 and 19 build quality...

At the end of 4 years of ownership of my 6C I did start to get an annoying creaking sound coming from the sunroof surround.

Re: GTI and GTI plus owners experiences

It has been highlighted before, I do find the stop start in traffic slightly annoying at times. My previous GTI was DSG and I could bring it to a stop gently without the stop start kicking in, hold the car with the engine running, then move off. This new model is far more sensitive and has a propens...

Re: GTI and GTI plus owners experiences

Yes it's a real mile muncher I'm finding and covers ground brilliantly. Great acceleration with the extra torque.

Re: GTI+ Ride Quality and Black Roof

I do like the ride quality compared to my old 6C. Lumps and bumps previously I'd grimace and think this is going to hurt but it's a breeze in the new one.

Re: New GTI + delivery

Cheers. Coming from the 6C it definitely eats up the road with greater ease. The car is more accomplished in the twists and turns, steering more precise and unlike the 6C you stay routed in your seat. I haven't thought wow what a difference, its just a quietly better experience... Sent from my SM-G9...

10 to 12 months is plausible- some here have faced a 12-14 month wait, although they seem to be coming through quicker now.
And here in SA we get them in 3 months :P
Yes we've noticed. [emoji57][emoji6]

Re: New GTI + delivery

The day has finally arrived. Car now happily sat on my drive. Initial thoughts. Better hugging seats. Larger car feel and appeal obviously. Car was set in normal mode and I felt it a more superior ride to my 6c in normal mode. Soaked up the road beautifully. How it feels on those twisty roads compar...

Re: New GTI + delivery

Car manufacturers playing catch up. I remember the 90s where car stereos were regularly stolen from cars. Then VW for instance introduced a stereo where the front panel detached and you took it with you. Better still they became integral to the dash and problem roundly solved. Sent from my SM-T585 u...
