    GTi Mark V Diamond Black 3dr
  1. Pirelli Edition GTI.....

    Utterly pointless and that interior is fecking awful
  2. ipod armrest and iphone

    I don't think so. The armrest has the pre-moulded slide-in adapters for the old ipods, new gen ipods, nano and new shuffle, but I don't think there is one for the iphone.
  3. Classifieds whats wrong!!!

    Gallery is down also.
  4. Swapping my GTi MkV

    Thanks for the comments. Won't be doing any mods to it as I've got it on a lease-plan. Going from a 3-door to a 5-door and I have to say, I do think the 5-door looks better and the extra rear/side visibility is an added and unexpected bonus.
  5. Swapping my GTi MkV

    Picked up my new one this morning. Of course, chuffed to bits with it! Lovely with the leather
  6. Creaking Front Suspension...!!!

    Yep, my 2005 creaks a tiny bit from the passenger side front. Don't think I'll bother doing anything about it as I'm trading it in Tuesday! ;-)
  7. VW Scirocco

    Don't like the front, don't like the side, don't like the back. I think I don't like it.
  8. The GTI and the future VED increases

    One day, and I hope it's soon, the great British public (and that of the Western World) will realise they have been party to the biggest con-job the world has ever seen. They said it was Global Warming. They said we were all going to die. They said it was our fault. They said we had to pay all our governments and retailers lots more of our money to make the world right again and to stop us from having a guilty conscience. They said "trust us, we are scientists and your government and we are never wrong". I say... F*ck off Global Warming. It's a myth. The Earth has been warming up and cooling down since the dawn of time. We have got f*ck all to do with it. Wake up everyone. Until then, I will drive my evil planet killing GTi at full throttle as much as I f*cking well like.
  9. OEM rear LED's for Mk5....

    The lights look great. Really like those plates, where did you get them from? Cheers.
  10. Leather now standard

    Chuffing nora, that new VW website is shockingly crap. I have designed a few websites in my time and that VW effort is very poor for such a big company. It's not even style over substance as the use of Flash is poorly executed, with loading times I wasn't seeing on websites five years ago. My laptop is pretty hi-spec and my processor was working overtime all the time I had the website open and even for a few minutes after it shut. Sort it out VW.
  11. Swapping my GTi MkV

    It's all been said, but to close the loop on this thread, finally got confirmation from my dealer that my GTi will come with leather as standard. Which is nice.
  12. Swapping my GTi MkV

    Dealer rang me back, he remembers something about a memo about Leather and thinks mine will be included, but isn't sure and doesn't know about the centre armrest. He's going to speak to area management to check. The suspense is killing me
  13. Swapping my GTi MkV

    Yep, I just saw that after I posted. I rang my dealer to double check and he wasn't so sure (no surprise there), so is going to ring me back.
  14. Swapping my GTi MkV

    Yep, I bought mine on a leaseplan, so had to change this year and can't afford to go to a ED30 or R32 (just moved house), so this is the best option for me. This time round, I've gone for a 5 door with 18" wheels and the centre-armrest-ipod-thingy. Still Diamond black, budget wouldn't stretch to leather seats.
  15. Swapping my GTi MkV

    Had the old girl for 3 years now, so time to move on and get a new car and decided to get... Another GTi ! Best car I've ever had. Roll on May/June when the new one arrives.
