My mate was advised against a golf 8 by the service guy at our local vw dealer.....lots of issues apparently.
So what's the issue with the TT after such a short time and does the title need changing again to Jassy's TTS misadventure?

Crikey you'll be into SUV's before you know it lol

My dislike of white cars came from owning 2 white cars in succession....l dislike Turbo even more
Never liked white saloon cars as they're widely used for weddings
The Golf is nice in white it has more than enough black addenda to break up the colour...so you've got a lot black/white contrast on most of the panels

Wow, that was short lived Jassy... All the hassle of getting it delivered as well. What's peeing you off the most about it... Comfort, ride, engine..."blue rinse" not matching the interior lol.
You've got a really exclusive motor at the mo and to chop it for something that will be 10 to a penny once chips become available and lease deals kick in is a shame... But hey upto you fella

Reported issues about the mk8 Golf aside, I just can’t get on with the looks of it. Still think the mk7.5 is much nicer looking. Agree with @Chris4410 that the TCR is the better looking car. I’d give the TTS a few more months before deciding to move it on @jassyo06, but that’s easy for me to say!!

Are there not a lot of issues with current Golf's, particularly the electronics?

As with the previous one, seen a lot of lease deals coming up on them meaning the roads will be flooded with them again.

The GTI Clubsport would be a better shout IMO, better looking car as well.

I like the clubsport, minus the decals which you can specify without

Is that 0 - 60 time correct? why almost a second slower than the S3 - not that its important just interested given the same power

cheers all - 300PS FWD - that should be fun round corners in the damp / wet:grinning:

My TCR had 300PS and it had no problems going round corners in the wet.

Definitely! With the tech and LSD’s they can put the power down. Much rather 300bhp FWD than RWD in the wet

That new Seat is one ugly car mate copper embellishments Jeezo......
You can get them without the copper colour alloys :)
will do mate Clubsport or the R with a good spec would do me even in white Pan roof 19s are a must though
When I asked the sales guy what he'd go for Gti, Clubsport or R, he said Clubsport! Said one of his customers just traded in the R for the Club and said he preferred it as he felt more in control of it, a real drivers car. said the R is just too easy to drive.

lol exactly what I asked the sales guy, can they be taken off :D Showing our age!!! :p

@jassyo06 Main reason for selling the TT???

Haha, we are indeed mate. Any details on what deals on offer? One issue with VW is the APR. Which is why I will possibly be on a lookout for a lease deal

If I read this correctly (had a few tinnies lol) your keeping the lovely TTS, it's a cracking motor and I'm not sure you could handle SWMBO stating "fooking told you so" if you get rid of another lovely motor.

You’ve made the right decision! I’m sure once you get it detailed, you will fully appreciate what you’ve got. What are you planning for it detailing wise?

Definitely the right decision to hold on to it @jassyo06
Keep it, drive it and enjoy it for at least 6 months before making any decisions.

Gorgeous looking finish money well spent mate

Cheers mate, I’m really pleased with the results.

Ive definitely found a detailer that I am happy to hand my car over to. Bonus was he owned a 675LT that he was happy to show me around when I was picking the car up.
