Re: New GTI + delivery

He said the Polo Gti is made in South Africa but then goes to Germany for inspection before uk delivery, so I am not sure how long that would take. Interesting. http://www.carmag.co.za/news_post/vw-finalises-new-polo-pricing-gti-to-be-built-in-sa/ All variants of the previous Polo GTI model were bu...

Re: New GTI + delivery

I didn't drive it in the dark yesterday ti know for sure (in case lighting function was linked to the light sensor for headlights - doubt it would be that sophisticated in control), but on the Golf's sills you could see the translucent bit the light shone through and I can't see it here, So I'd say...

Ready to go at last
Nice. I nearly went for black but opted for white instead. Also same as you with standard wheels purely because they seem easier to get at the calipers for cleaning. my current wheels are a nightmare trying to reach the red calipers
