My 2007 Laser Blue GTI
« on: March 22, 2017, 10:26:46 PM »
Hey all.

Had my GTI for just under a week and so far really enjoying the experience.

It's a one owner from new with full VW service history. The previous owner had owned since new and was only selling due to a upgrading to a MK7 GTI.

Apparently a rare colour especially as it's a 2007 model!!

Coming from a Q5 this little beauty feels rapid.

Previously owned a 2012 S3 and 2009 Focus RS and the Golf is right up there with them both.

Love that colour! Stunning!

It wouldn't be fun if it was easy, I just wish it wasn't this much fun.

Any idea why VW stopped making the laser blue colour?

Wonder if it was imported over prior to registration in the U.K.?

Not sure, wish they'd made more of them though then I might have been able to get one. haha.

As for maybe being imported, give VWUK a ring and give them the chassis number, they might be able to give you some history on the car.

What kind of plans have you got for the car?

Good shout Chris. I might just do that tomorrow.

There's an 05 laser blue on eBay at the moment.

No plans to modify yet. Want to enjoy her in standard form for a while.

Will let you know what VW UK say.

Yeah, VWUK were really helpful when I phoned to get some history on my car/check recalls etc so no harm in giving them a phone.

Stay on here long enough and you'll have it modified before you know it. haha!

Mines an import from Dubai - sunroof with xenons drivers electric seat cruise, MFSW and parking sensors fitted. Came in white.

I've seen other white imports but never seen this colour. Looks nice though!

The previous owner who had purchased it from new says he purchased  it from the showroom where it was on display.

Certainly is an interesting one

Did he buy it from vw direct?

I know a lot of these were imported back into the u.k by motorpoint but not sure if all of them came via the same route.

Does help they come with a really good spec on them. Love the sunroof on mine (even though it has stared to leak from time to time!)

I'm presuming so as it was a new vehicle at the time.

Mystery hey!!

Nice
I think with colour coded Ed30 splitter and valance, rear lights, this car would look even better gorgeous colour
