ChrisB, I would say that the button is the Tyre Pressure Monitoring system. Looks like the same symbol as on my wife's MINI! You can reset it after it's beeped a warning at you. (After fixing whatever has lowered the pressure in a wheel of course!)

I know what you mean about the black the front looks really aggressive, but is it a trick of the light on the floor or is the back bumper plastic more grey than on the standard Golf.

Always said the next car I was getting was going to be silver after the last 2 being black. It does look good.

Love the dials, actually quite like the seats, still don't like 5 door models, and I really which they'd show a fully colour coded model with that big stupid black valance.

But I still think the interior looks quite cheap [B)]

I personally despise the rear of the MK5 even in GTI form - I think they have really shot themselves in the foot with its bubbly/effeminate contours ? they have lost all sense of direction with the smoked/darkened lamps at the rear ? a defining GTI trademark.

I?m also a little disappointed at the rate it is priced, they are really deluding themselves when a Honda is about ?10k [lot of money] cheaper for a similar Type R. With the Mk4 GTI it was only marginally more expensive at a few ?k over a Honda but a ?10k gap is just crazy. One thing for sure is that there will be a lot less Mk5 GTIs on the road now that the price range is out of most prospective buyers so perhaps it will bring about some exclusivity to the [ever increasing snobby] VW driver (j/k!)!
