Does anyone know of a website that breaks down the sales data of each particular region of the U.K.
I know about the website which details the number of cars physically sold and registered on Uk roads, but the Gti is such a rare sight on roads here in Wales, I would love to know just how many were registered region to region.
Saw a black 3dr driven by a lady on the new A556 link road towards Altrincham and the M56. Then a silver 4dr around 13:30pm today on Princess road around Withington/Rusholme area. The car looked like it had a larger bore tail pipe. I think reg plate began GV18
Leave it two months before I reply, will I?
Looks like it!
But, yes! Well, I'm driving it about as little as I thought I would. An extravagance, parked out in a South London street - but obviously a pretty cheap one as far as cars go. Done about 4,000 miles so far though, that's probably quite a bit more than I expected. Longest run was Perth (Scotland) and back, but been all over, really.
Not had any issues with it. Find the front tyre pressures a bit hard to read.
Ride is overly stiff and clunks a little, but sort of adds to the tacky charm. That said, I think it's really well built. I don't want a load of unnecessary design lines and chunky plastic. It's just simple and well assembled.
I dunno, it's just a lot of fun isn't it. Not really a patch on my mate's MK1 MX-5 for driving fun, but my roof doesn't leak (yet) when it rains and it still easily makes you go "weeeeeeee!" (and girlfriend, "woooooa!") when you're giving it some welly on a country lane.
tl;dr - Yeah, I'm enjoying it. About as much as I thought I would. Sensation of speed is probably the cars best feature.
Saw a Black one, here in North Wales, last weekend, first one since last August
Even with the new reintroduction of the car, Uk registered Gtis still number well under 3000 vehicles on Uk roads.
Currently ive seen four accident damage examples for sale on various second hand parts websites, so it will still remain a very rare sight on our roads.
After seeing Volkswizard's video about the bad bits on a GTI I was curious for myself. Having owned the car now for 1 week and did my first decent journey yesterday, making a 120 mile round trip Andrew was so right with my right elbow aching.
Having a RSI Gel mat at my work desk I had to...
Older long term VW fan running a Golf GTI.
Bought a used Up GTI to replace my wife's Swift Sport which was picking up punctures almost monthly.
Hate the useless glue kits so like many looking to replace kit with actual spare.
I see that the recommendation is to purchase a 14'' wheel but...
So I’ve finally saved enough and taken the plunge on a set of eibach pro street coilovers. £719 via autodoc didn’t seem too bad so, after umming and aahing over bilstein vs eibach and doing a lot of reading on here, I decided to go for the pricier albeit more comfortable option.
I’m new to...
I am currently looking to buy a used Up Gti but can’t make up my mind between 3 door or 5 door.
i prefer the look of the 3 door with its longer doors and rear quarter up lift, however I am concerned that the length of the doors will make getting out difficult when parked in usual UK tiny spaces...
