MK7 Area Added
« on: May 04, 2015, 10:27:54 PM »
Hi.

You have probably noticed that we have just added a MK7 area. Its sparse at the moment, but if it gathers momentum we will add more sub-catergories to match the MK5 area.

Cheers

Purely because of the vast similarities of the 5/6 we have not seen the need for separating them out. The 7 is a different car all together.

Keep up the good work!  :drinking:

There's not really a need for a mk6 section, as mentioned and looking at many products on the market the similarities between mk5 and mk6 cars is huge.

Perhaps a Mk6 Rides section specific for mk6 owners? Best middle ground?

Moving over to Flickr, sorry for the broken picture links!

I think that having a mk7 section is a good idea as that is what existing mk5 owners are most likely to move up to, and as Rich says it is a rather different build to mk5/6. Arguably, the Clubsport S represents peak GTi.

Having seen what an ugly and underwhelming design VW have eventually announced for the mk8, it seems a generation to miss rather like the mk3...in my opinion they appear to be transitioning the design over to purely electric future models.
