Hi All,

I've been a TSM member for a while, having owned two S3's and a X5.

I've now got a MK5 GTi DSG so thought I'd say hi!

Hi all

I'm moving from a TT to a Black Mark V DSG due to an increase in family size in the next couple of weeks..

Needed extra doors to get the baby seat in and out.

TT went 5 weeks ago and GTI is Build week 13.

Having to drive my wifes Mark IV 1.6SE now..

fairly basic as I wanted to keep the cost down

Diamond Black DSG (wanted DSG to play with)

Highline (must have from what I have read)

Winter pack (wife insisted on the heated seats)

I stuck with the 17"'s as the TT had 18"'s and the ride was a bit "firm" (bearing in mind it'll be a baby shifter).

I am not sure about the I.C.E. from what I have been reading here - probably will start with the IPOD link..

Longer term I'd like a double DIN satnav (touchscreen) but not seen many around yet (some are coming out in the US).

No delivery date yet..

A guy on GolfMKV.com forums has a Week 12 build week and 27th March as delivery..

You may be lucky as they will want your cash for year end accounts wink.gif

The waiting is bad - but not as bad as the Aussie's..

I forgot - I ordered Xenons as well..

Had to have them after the TT and my previous experiences of Golfs.

I have had MKI, III and IV Golfs in the past.

Yeah, my dealer really wants to sell me the car before April smile.gif However, as much as I want it, I really don't want them to rush the PDI just to get another car in year end.

do u know the top speed.?

[/ QUOTE ]

200 I reckon. yelrotflmao.gif

Just do a search anywhere online, or visit the VW site, surely that's the easy way to find out?

Ritchy I think the top speed is around / just over 140 (official figures), 0-60 is quoted 7.1 for the manual and 6.9 for the DSG (again official figures). But a lot of the mags and owners seem to think they can do it a bit quicker. (hence the previous sarcastic response to your question)

Hi Ritchy and welcome 169144-ok.gif.

I'm not a Moderator but if you post a new topic, instead of in this Welcome topic, you'll get much better feedback and help and it will leave this topic for what it's meant for as a 'stickie'.

Cheers and enjoy TSN.
