How would you spec your dream VW Golf GTI Mk8?
Comment your dream configuration!
Ever since the Mk8 Golf came out late last year, I have been patiently waiting for the GTI variant to hit our streets and now it has finally been announced and you can now configure one on VWs website, so this is what I came up with.
As you can see straight off the bat, I went for a new colour called Moonstone Grey which is a borderline Nardo grey which I think really suits the Golf. On top of this, I went for the standard GTI wheels which are the only ones to have in my opinion.
Then the more controversial option I went for was the DSG gearbox over the manual one. Hate me all you want, but the DSG is just such a good box, I don't care. I'm sure the manual is fun but as a daily, the DSG wins.
After that, I added a few extra options onto the car such as Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC), a panoramic sunroof, park assist, heads-up display, rear view camera, the Harman Kardon sound system (because it is unbelievable).
So, all this came to a grand total of £39,000 which is insane for a Golf but I will take that as it is worth every penny. Just a side note - the starting price for a Mk8 Golf GTI is just short of £34,000.
