To be honest i think i would rather just have the normal one,there is not that much for £2k extra that i'm that bothered about and i don't like the wheels as much as Monza 2's and you can't spec any different ones either.

must just be me, but i dont like it as much as a normal one, especially not as much as a spec'd up one like mine, its wheels are revolting, as is the rear bumper insert, the full colour coding loses the lines of the car and .... im just not feeling it

Yay for pics lol!!! [:D]

I'll admit to having quite an itchy trigger finger about this car and soooo want to pull it and order one lol! but so far the black wheels have put me off so i'm back very interested again tbh....

Failing that, i'll settle for the Steering wheel to match my MKV golfball gearknob instead! [;)]

The fastest and most
powerful production Golf GTI yet is set to kick off celebrations as 2007 marks
the 30th anniversary of the original hot hatch - the Mk1 Golf GTI. Despite
three decades having passed since the defining GTI was conceived, the spirit of
the original is still very much alive in the new Golf GTI Edition 30.

At its heart is an uprated
version of the 2.0-litre, ultra-responsive four-cylinder T-FSI engine fitted to
the standard GTI. The result is 230 PS - a rise of 30 PS over the standard car.
This is mated to a choice of six-speed manual or sequential DSG gearboxes
channelling drive through the front wheels.

The new Golf GTI Edition 30
will sprint to 62 mph in only 6.8 seconds (6.6 secs when equipped with DSG)
before reaching a maximum of 150 mph.

Joining the dynamic tweaks
is a fresh new look for the GTI Edition 30. New body-coloured side skirts are
paired with a new chin spoiler for the front bumper and a body-coloured rear
bumper. A subtle 'GTI' badge sits on the bootlid below tinted rear lights. Completing
the look are a set of unique 18-inch 'Pescara' alloy wheels.

Inside, the GTI Edition 30 benefits
from unique sports seats finished in 'Interlagos' cloth trim and completed with
leather side bolsters and headrest. The distinctive golf ball gear knob synonymous
with the Mk1 GTI also makes a welcome comeback. Elsewhere silver sill plates
featuring a unique 'Edition 30' logo are joined by the sculpted leather GTI
steering wheel complete with red stitching.

Equipment levels for the
Edition 30, as on the standard GTI, are high, with ABS, ESP (Electronic
Stabilisation Programme), six airbags, radio/CD player, 2Zone electronic
climate control and twin chrome exhaust tailpipes all featured.

Just 1,500 examples of the
GTI Edition 30 will be available from early January with a range of six paint
colours ranging from Candy White to the searing Tornado Red. Prices for the
anniversary model start at just over £22,000 for the three-door model, with a
£1,330 premium for the DSG-equipped car. The GTI Edition 30 is also available
with five doors for an additional £500.

The right hand drive Mk1
Golf GTI - developing a modest 112 bhp - went on sale in the UK in 1977. At
the time Leo Sayer was at number one, Star Wars gripped a generation of kids,
Concorde was about to take flight for the first time and Volkswagen's new GTI
cost £5,217. The Golf GTI, with its mix of a low kerb weight and a fast-revving
four-cylinder engine, sharpened suspension and subtly aggressive looks, became
an instant hit. By the time the Mk1 GTI was phased out in 1984 over 19,500
examples had been sold in the UK.

I've got 2 photos so if anybody want to upload them - contact me and I'll Email them

The wheels look a lot better than the black Monzas, defo a photoshop though.  In my mind the 30th Edition should have xenons and the highline computer as standard on top of everything else.  Maybe having the alloys as 19" aswell, although the low profile tyres would not help the ride quality but would make it stand out more as really the bodykit is just the black bits painted.  Don't think it stands out asmuch as the MK4 Anni did over the standard MK4 GTI.

I agree Dave, it's not special enough in those photo's.
