I’m jealous of people with a single garage, let along a double

Looks great mate, like its been said be a cracking little go kart, back to the heritage of the MK1 Golf GTi.

Originally I did go for a 5dr in pure white but it was somehow damaged prior to delivery, I then managed to source this one without any long wait. I always preferred the look of the 3dr but liked the extra practicality of a 5dr; for the car's size there's a decent amount of space in the back.

Dealers will be managing to get their hands on a few now for dealer stock, whereas a couple of month back it would be hard to even get a look at one at a dealer, because as soon as one would arrive it was out the door again. Mine was one that the dealer had ordered for group stock when the order books opened in Feb, yet they didn't get it until October!

For anyone interested in one, you can expect £1100-1400 off list through Drive the deal.

Looks a proper little pocket rocket and does look good in the colour combo you’ve got, has come up well

Very jealous......
I’m still waiting for a build week for a Polo Gti+ that I ordered in January, I doubt that I will get it before January or February 2019

The Polo GTIs are certainly a smart looking car and go against the grain with the step up to the 2.0 TSI under the bonnet. There will be plenty that get remapped to a much higher figure.

What timescale were you quoted when ordering? If it is well beyond your quoted timescale bear the VW Mobex scheme in mind. VW's build sequences are truly bizarre, some ordered these up GTIs in Feb and haven't received them yet, however I ordered one late June and it received it late Sept.

Just beyond 800 miles on the clock. Averaged 48mpg over the last two tank fills without making any real effort to drive economically. A good chunk of that driving has been on hilly back B roads.

Looks a really tidy job. I used to work with someone who planned on ordering one. He kept rattling off the stats on them. It's a lot of bang for your bucks!
