    Hello Folks

    Surprised to see I could still log in, considering my last post was 12 August 2008 [:D] (Mk2 gear shift repair guide).

    I'd been over on UKPassats for a number of years, then UKSaabs, on DelSol UK to satiate my love of the little two seaters, and Briskoda since 2012 with a V6 Superb and then an Octavia vRS TSI.

    However, at the weekend I traded in the vRS and picked up a GTI with 24 miles on the clock. Lets see if I can remember how to upload photo's:

    And I'm very, very happy with it. Heated leather, pano roof, virtual cockpit, adaptive cruise, apple car play, and lots of gizmos [8D]

    My Wife's had a '65 plate Polo GTI for a couple of years, and I recently bought my Son a Touran after his Vectra GSi failed an MOT with spectacular aplomb. Kids have moved out though, so while we're a VW family, we're a GTI household!

    Anyhoos, I just thought I'd pop in a quick hello, again, seeing as how I'm chuffed to be back in a GTI :thumbup:

    Think I'll wait 'til it's out of warranty before I start thinking about that. I had the vRS mapped to just north of 300bhp (220ps as standard) which made it a fair bit more sprightly. At 200 miles now, I haven't really stretched the GTI's legs yet, but I think it'll bop along okay.
