The photos (2) are at :

Then click “Search” I hope ………..

The photos are not very good online I admit but were much better on the printed page, in black and white – very artistic!

I understand that I'm the car is a VW (UK) press car supplied to the Northern Echo for a week, in which it was reviewed and photographed. The picture was taken in a local supermarket car park! I like the angle of the shot and lighting …

"Price (as tested: £23,845"

That's a pretty good deal with DSG, SatNav, Xenons etc. !!!

Incidently, I read in some other thread that the Edition 30 was no longer limited edition and that it wold continue to be sold for the forseeable future. Anybody know if that's true ? Might help me negotiate a bigger discount if it is.

schofier, you might want to have a look at Euroimports

http://www.euroimports.co.uk/ if you want to compare prices in particular.

I got mine there. Very content with the service and price.

They also might be able to confirm the future of the ED30 for you.

Cheers for the tip, although a quick browse of their website suggests they only deal in the standard GTI. I'll give them a call and see what they could do for an ED30.

There are certainly deals to be had on the ED30, DriveTheDeal for instance are offering around £1300 off the list price of a 5 door manual. However, a local dealer suggested that they were still limited edition so discounts were unlikely.

schofire, <I'll give them a call and see what they could do for an ED30.>

That's the best thing to do.

If they can get one, just compare the price and delivery with the dealer quote.

I got mine within six weeks of ordering - to my exact spec.

I suppose they would say this wouldn't they! laugh.gif

Let us know how you get on.
