Ok, soni cutrently have a mk6 2.0tdi. Really nice car but i want a newer one so looking at a mk7.
Im probably not doing the mileage for a diesel anymore as the dpf light comes on every sonoften on my mk6 so looking at a petrol.
Id really like a GTI but not sure I can afford one and a GTD just gives me the same DPF worries so whats the next one down? Are there any known issues with mk7s as yet?
My MIL has just bought a 90bhp polo tsi which to be far feels pretty quick but I would fancy a golf and 90bhp would not cut it!

Why don't you just delete the dpf. There are plenty of tuning companies that can do it. Solves the problem.

Because then it will fail the MOT, if they look for a DPF canister and its not there.

Ignore comments on DPF deletes, who wants to buy a MK7 and start chopping it up..

Diesel engines are unnecessary now imo, unless your up and down the country all the time. new petrols are so economical without dpf/egr issues. diesels aren't for doing short journeys

 

I think they do a 2.0 tsi that isn't a GTI if your not worried about top spec.

I may be wrong on the other 2.0 model but the 1.4TSi with 150hp should be plenty :)

 

I'd personally (if I had the money) keep and eye out for a good used GTI (with performance pack). Its worth the extra money.


 

 

Owned far too many mkivs.
