I think its more than the two big knobs that are now silver - its all the radio buttons.I am not a fan of the silver radio buttons other than that it didn't seem much different from our 54 GT TDI but I am sure someone will be along in a mo to tell me the differences other than the radio buttons
Not true, as much as i like the GTi there is no way I would spend 21k + on it, I'd rather save my money and get the Focus ST. Not that i'm likely to do that either
I was only commenting on looks!!
Your see where your coming from but I don't agree with you. In the same way BMW have stated that there will never be a diesel M car I don't think there should be a diesel GTi. True diesel performance is great in the real world. They feel really punchy low down but for spirited driving your always running out of revs - takes a spell in a decent petrol car to remind me of this (ie CTR).Apologies to the original poster & to those who have bought the GT170, my comments were not intended to malign your purchase.Indeed the GT is a good car.Had it been available when I bought mine I might have been tempted.My comments were rather an annoyance at VW. I thought it was a wasted opportunity at really promoting the Diesel as a performance alternative.It should have stood shoulder to shoulder with the GTi as it was with the MK1.But unlike the MK1's these days there's little in it in terms of performance.
