Hi all,


I'll keep this short.


Mk6 GTI 

45k Miles

Heated Leather




Mk7 GTI (Performance Pack)

95K Miles



The Mk7 is coming out at £1k more, but feel I could probably get them down a little more..


Which would you go for?

MK7 every time


1) 95k miles is nothing

2) The Mk7 isn't old so if it's done that many miles it's either been doing motorway miles, or been owned by a Hermes delivery driver!!
