How’s it coming from the GTD. I’m making the same move

It’s just brilliant, total change. There’s nice touches in it and it feels more solid and better built.

Night and day, black and white I’d say. Feels so more planted and dare I say better built than my GTD

Can definitely understand the difference between the GTD and the R! I drove the GTD before buying the GTI and was seriously underwhelmed (prior car to the GTI was a modified PD130 Ibiza running c190bhp with 315ftlb of torque).

That’s some garage vagnum!

 

dissapointing about the paint issues. The VW paint is so soft nowadays 

 

I did think about taking mine to the German autobahn.......but have decided against it as i'm afraid at the top speed the paint might fly off.

 

Some time later this year i'll get the front end resprayed - or should i say sprayed, as respray implies there was already a coat on it before.

As promised a couple of pictures of the car after a bit more of a clean after pic up

 

Only put about 20 miles on it so far and itching to put my foot down but being very sensible

 

I also added carbon fibre mirror caps and a maxton spoiler this afternoon after the clean.

Most lease companies charge for delivery, no matter the distance, mentioned this before 😐

When I got my 7R from select car leasing they delivered it on a transporter for free but my new R from gateway2lease will cost £350 no thanks 👍

I posted on this a few days ago, my 7R from National Fleet (Vehiclesavers) was delivered for free on transporter, been told my 7.5R (also National Fleet/Vehiclesavers) is being driven to me or I can have it delivered on transporter for £300+VAT🤔🤷‍♂️

My neighbour has just got a brand new Skoda Octavia VRS today - in meteor grey or as i call it 'Primer with clear coat', i really do not see what people see in that colour.

Which company?

Direct LeasePlan was the leasing company, but I think there was a limit to how far the dealer could drive it & 170 miles was past that limit, so it was transported.
