A Warm Welcome to Tyresmoke, Rob 169144-ok.gif.

If you've been lurking you'll already have some idea of this site's excellent resources and joyful banter!

Check out the Cleaning forum (I think) to see what you can find out about getting your car repaired. Alternatively, post a new thread. A photo of the damage will help us to help you.

Hi Guys (and gals). been a lurker for a while.

Great forum. Been after a car for a while, but taken a while to save. Was a bit undecided as to what to buy but wanted something with a bit of zip. The test drive really sold it for me.

Finally ordered Golf GTI 30 edition, reflex silver, Xenons, MFSW & RCD 500 grin.gif Hopefully built this week, according to dealer, with delivery mid march.can't wait jump.gif

Thanks for the welcome.

Getting more excited each day. Also test drove the Audi S3 and Golf GTI back to back. The golf pushed my buttons more than the audi (although both are great cars). Dealer asked if I would be interested in test driving a 30 edition when the demo arrived -could not say no. ECLIPSe.gif One of the reasons for choosing 30 editon was v long delays (according to dealer) for delivery of standard gti, but also the spec I would have choosen for gti would have been at least as much for 30 edition. so it was a bit of a no-brainer for me suicide.gif

Hi just ordered a Steel Grey GTI 5Dr DSG.

This is a company car through a leasing company so I've no relationship with the dealer. Does anyone know what the current wait for a standard GTI?

Noticed the comment from farmerpalmer on the long wait was hoping to get it in June.

Cheers

Hi, just signed up and I'm looking forward all things Gti, a purchase is on the cards as soon as the right one appears, preferably laser blue, dsg, leather etc etc and at the right price, failing that I think the white ones can look pretty damned nice.

Cheers

Hi Muskie - welcome back.

Can't think there is anything to be aware of much. Most seem to be pretty reliable even with higher mileage.

Enjoy! +++
