I'm looking forward to what new GTi owners think of the performance, in a few months when they've owned them for a while, even more when some will have had them on rolling roads.
So, it's horses for courses, and for me, the TSi suits better.

You are correct in that the TSi rated at 90bhp actually produces around 105bhp, give or take a digit or two, due to VAG power output figures being conservative, or underestimated, the same of course will apply to the new Up GTi rated at 113bhp will in real terms probably put out close to 130bhp. Thumbs Up

For anyone just reading this thread who hasn't read the other thread on TSI power outputs, this figure is NOT obtained by measuring the power at the flywheel, which is how VAG measure it for their published figures.

Still loving it - the GTI looks fabulous and fun and I'm so glad it exists, but for me, I think the Tsi remains the preferred option. Understated and fast enough :)

Which speakers did you put in and how easy was it to do? I have heard they are riveted in

Hi Chris - sorry for the delay. Base Systems in Preston fitted the speakers for me so afraid I can't comment on the ease of fitting. They are JL Audio C1 - 650. They come up on a Google search. I'm very pleased with them, they are amazingly clear across the frequency range at any volume, though there is still a slight "boom" at a certain frequency (the problem I had with the factory fitted speakers), but I think I'm quite picky. Still thinking about an under seat sub but there doesn't look to be a lot of room!

Just took the plunge again and ordered another Tsi. We weren't going to change the wife's 15 plate 75bhp High Up this year, but we're loving the white silver Tsi we bought in November, and a little looking round resulted in a really good deal on a new, 18 plate 5 door Tsi High Up in Costa Azul with black roof and door mirrors.
List price with extras should have been £14111.
Bought today for £11,000, with 1st years £140 road tax thrown in, and also £250 worth of tyre and alloy wheel insurance. This time, a better deal than buying a pre-reg, or ex-demo.
Should be here in 4/5 weeks.
Can't wait,
Steve

Thats a great deal!!  Is it a cash deal or PCP/lease?

Got to worry about Up residuals though if they are offering 30% off new ones.  I think I'd better keep mine for a long time.  What did they offer you for the old Up or did you not own it at the end of the payments?

Cash deal, we have always bought cash. Note I had brain fade when I made the last post, it was a total of £11000, not £10000, (edited now), but still £3111 off and another £390 worth thrown in.
I paid £5500 to change. So they valued it in p/ex at £5500. I paid £9350 in 2015 when it was three months old and minimal mileage. The 75bhp High Up had done 25000 miles and was just three years old.
This will probably be our last new car, so decided to take the plunge and take advantage of the great deal.
Vertu VW Lincoln, same dealer as we got the last Tsi from.
Listers at Leamington Spa tried very hard too, but couldn't get nearer than £400 more, without the road tax & tyre & alloy insurance, for the same spec car, so effectively £790 cheaper from Lincoln.
Very pleased.

That is still a fantastic deal and the trade in price is very encouraging too.  Thanks for answering in such detail - very helpful.
