The dealer has kindly provide me with a loan car as VWFS refused to extend my finance for a couple of weeks. Theyíve had to register a brand new Ibiza for me. Literally only done PDI miles. It feels well built, good quality (minus an annoying rattle) and itís nice to drive. Albeit the 1.0ltr engine lacks the power of the 1.4 TSI Iím used to. but around town itíd be fantastic.

Not sure how Ewen wangled a Golf GTI haha.

It's still something! I'm honestly not sure how I managed to end up with a GTI either... But I ain't complaining!!

Booked my train ticket to go collect first weekend in March

Must agree. Friend of mines just got a new golf GTi, and although a lot of the interior features are the same between the two, the exterior of the Leon looks a lot better

Small world indeed!

Few weeks ago, SEAT rang me and had it delivered within a few hours - I couldn't believe they were capable of delivering anything quickly. Nice gesture to keep me going until the new toy arrives!!

Is that from the middlewood rd JCT?

How is it? Always use to want a GTI?
Hope it doesn't take anything away from your new order.

Got my last two cars from the JCT on Middlewood Rd but got an amazing price through DriveTheDeal this time around that they couldn't match.

GTI was arranged through a rental company. Trying not to enjoy it too much because I know my Leon is less powerful, but a very similar drive (except the power) to my old one.

You may have been better off with an Ibiza too

Does it have a decent spec? I can see it has acc.

How are you finding the interior quality?

I'm not as familiar with the Golf spec but yes it has ACC which I haven't really had the opportunity to try as most of my driving is around Sheffield. Winter pack is nice for the heated seats in this weather though! Not sure what else it has which isn't standard. Unfortunately it's not the Mk7.5 so it doesn't have the virtual cockpit

Interior quality is good. I'd call the design fairly uninspiring (much like the Leon to be fair) but everything is nice to touch, and I'd put it a little step above the Leon. Sunglasses holder in the roof is a nice addition.

The Android Auto / Carplay isn't activated on this car which is mildly annoying!

Ah ok, well judging by the spec of your Leon and taking the power out of the equation you'll forget about the golf in no time ( I hope )

I had an S3 delivered not too far away from where your GTI was delivered back in October through to December.

I loved it, but I'm still enjoying my Leon now I have it back.

Hi Marcus. So are you the first brave one to go for the Orange?? I love the colour, but I've only seen it on press pictures. Which of course make it look very bright and zingy. Have you or anyone seen the colour in the flesh (so to speak)??
