Well, what can I say that hasn't been said already. This car is AWESOME !! It is very fast, handles superbly, the ride is firm but not bumpy, the brakes give you an amazing amount of confidence and the DSG is fantastic !!

I ordered mine on 30/12/04, originally told it would be ready end of Feb, although I did change from manual to DSG half way through Jan, so that may have had an effect. Having said that, it is certainly worth the wait.

For once, the M4 was a nice place to be [:D]

Cheers,

Lee

Had a couple of looks this morning going down the M4, but that was probably due to the strange grin I seem to have developed since I picked it up [^]

Last night, I lined up against a couple of chavs in a Clio Sport, I couldn't resist it and floored it, needless to say, they were last seen disappearing in my rear-view mirror [:D]

Thanks for all the nice comments guys.

bbdivo, I heard exactly that today re: the M4, as I understand it, it'll be between J14 and J16 starting next week, luckily for me, I don't go that way, but I agree, it is a bit naughty of them.

The DSG is....well, it should be called the Dog's Bo&%^$ks, especially in manual mode with the paddles, its so much fun and really adds another dimension to driving. I've never had an auto before, and thought I may miss the manual, but I know I won't, I'm pretty sure in 5 years time, DSG will be standard.

JamesR, although I think that red is probably the best colour for the GTI as it shows off the front grill more, one advantage I feel the black has is that the wheels look better in that the red calipers stand out much more, I have to say, I do love the wheels, and can't feel a difference in the ride between 17's and 18's.

Anways, new camera should be here tomorrow so I'll try to post some more pics then, thanks again for all your comments.
