Well after much deliberation on here and at home etc, finally took the plunge and bought a new MKV GTI, WooHoo...!!!!! [:D][:D]

Went for a test drive etc today and ended up leaving the showroom ?20.5K poorer but soon to be the proud owner of a brand new Tornado Red 3 door with 18's and armrest/changer

Should be picking her up next saturday hopefully, just got to start saving up for some Optimax now....! [:p]

I only picked mine up 3 weeks ago (its is 10 months old) the GTI is a great car. Already had it remapped by APR.

Good for you on your fine choice on motor vehicle.

PS I think laser blue is best though[;)][:D]

It'll be most probably at Grimsby, only the Press cars end up at MK, even the Bentley factory registered ones don't make MK.

Congratulations Beddie, and good specs to order too.  Perhaps you should have heeded the warnings of others on here and NOT gone for a test drive.  We all know that the test drive will cost you at least 20K, why do people do it?

Quite correct young man!, however the above is a special and little known rule which only applies to company vans...

In fact in the small print of the above 'Beddie's law of van driving', it does say that 'your own ?20K car should in no way be treated ANYTHING like the works van'.......

Don't think i'll be washing the GTI in neat TFR every week with a yard brush either.....lol! [:D]
