MK7 GTD DSG
« on: June 30, 2015, 08:28:59 PM »
Treated myself to a new car this week and went for the Mk7 GTD! Absolutely loving it having previously had a MK5 GTI and more recently MK6 2.0 TDI, it truly is the best of both worlds with strong performance and economy :grin:

Its in Tornado Red with the standard spec plus Discover Navigation and Park Assist 2.0. My first ever brand new car, great feeling seeing it turn from a configuration on vw.co.uk to reality

Great purchase! I've seen one white here in Portugal with red painted calipers and I thought it'd be the new standard. I guess it's an extra or the owner painted them.

Good luck with it! :happy2:

Sport and Sound Pack gets you red calipers on the GTD I believe.

Thanks for all the comments. About 2400 miles in now so nicely run in, engine seems noticeably smoother and more economical. Engage Sport mode for maximum fun!

Lovely car mate. Looking at one of these for weekly duties. Have you thought about mapping yours?

Looked at Revo and it takes these to around 230bhp and 370-380lbft!

I have a 3dr in White great car an use it daily !
Never get anywhere near the official fuel consumption figures though !!
I fitted the DTUK tuning box and that gives GTI performance which is superb for a diesel !
Now that fuel prices are coming down diesel makes great sense  :happy2:
