    I've been naughty...

    There is a SLIGHT chance that I may have ordered a MK7 Golf GTI today...

    I've been grinning ear to ear since about 1pm, and I can't stop!

    Picking it up next Wednesday

    Good for you, but you will need to add pics
    I can't wait to get a new motor, undecided at the moment. You earn it, you deserve to spend it!

    I used to have a MK 6 Golf. I have a 2.0 TSI 210 BHP Scirocco.

    You have picked a great car!

    I've been naughty...

    Thanks @rad and @FN-GM, I'm properly excited!

    Pictures will be duly uploaded, not to worry about that!

    Gone for a pre-reg to avoid the excessive new costs.

    Would have liked the performance pack, however happy with the model I've got. Especially given the majority of my travel will be South East/Central London.

    - Carbon Grey Paint
    - 5 door
    - Auto DSG
    - Heated leather interior (hate the stock tartan)
    - Nav Pro media sys
    - Sunroof
    - Plus some other bits that I've forgotten in the excitement!

    Now for the wait...!

    I have the sunroof and heated leather. Both great! Do you have that adjustable suspension and reversing screen? Bet it has a flat bottom steering wheel?

    I like the stock tweed seats!

    @FN-GM - No to the reversing camera; it does have parking sensors, and shows the car on screen and how close etc.
    Yes to the adjustable suspension though Oh, and a big yes to the flat-bottomed wheel!

    They just don't work for me. Plus, so used to heated leather now, I just can't go back!

    Thats what i meant Mine has that, life saver!

    The flat bottom steering wheel is good, im 6ft and that extra little bit of space makes a big difference.

    My heated seats take ages to warm up, i believe you will have the new ones. should be quicker!

    @FN-GM - Hopefully they're quick to warm up. My S40's seats go from cold to bum scalding within about 2 minutes!

    You should have got the rear camera it is brilliant I wouldn't be without it on my VW makes for amazing parking and showing off to people who are just when they watch it appear on the display

    Enjoy it I miss my MK4 GTI, went for something a bit more practical for Rural Yorkshire... then moved to London so I look like I should live in Chelsea now but with all this flooding I'll maybe need it in the south for that before long

    My mate had the Mk5 R32 a few years back, absolutely blew me away!
    Was looking at purchasing the R this time round, but can't justify the additional cost at the moment...
