    And being a Golf GTI it'll be not only more comfortable and supportive than the A3, but the car will handle better too.

    I'd have one in a flash.

    Absolutely right - they're virtually the same as the optional S-Line wheels! The first picture looks like the wheels have been photoshopped in too. Could be wrong, but it's a poor quality picture.

    In my opinion it's a very desirable car indeed. The old GTI 25-year anniversary sold solidly and still commands decent prices even now, so this new model would appear to be a good purchase.

    Will have to wait until EVO drive it to see how the lowered suspension works with the extra power.

    Just cause they are BBS don't make em nice, thats why I did not spec them on mine as a no cost option cause they are f*cking awful, now the CVs or RXs are nice

    I was once unfortunate enough to be in a 1990 Peugeot 406 that had seats like that

    We're seeing a few power variants of the 2.0T FSI now..... Just a shame my 200PS is the bottom of the heap

    I'm in the 'gross wheels' camp too.

    What about the new Mazda 3 MPS ?

    I's going to be cheaper and more powerful.
    250bhp and under £20K,I think.
    Roadtests seem quite favourable too.
    Styling is probably more controverial than the 'safe' Golf,but I like the Mazda 3's styling in general.

    never mind the so so wheels ( just coz they are BBS dont automatically mean they are great) That interior is AWFUL!!!

    I think the standard GTI looks better as well, that body kit doesnt do the shape any favours.

    I have a friend with a GTI with a revo re map & it is very impressive, in the dry it is a little quicker than my (currently) standard S3. In the wet tho its like the TC light is a strobe on the dash constantly.

    I quite like the car what I dont like is the price tag especially when you spec one up a bit and think about the other similar cars that are available for far less money.

    The seat fabric and golf ball gear knob are dreadful .

    Hmm, the package as a whole looks interesting, but the MPS bodystyling really is dreadful. Those sideskirts remind me of the fibreglass Ford RS copies you could get back in the 90s!

    Agree about the CH's, nice wheels. Just hope they don't corrode like our 25th Anniversary RC's.
