    For Sale: SOLD: 2021 VW GTI Mk7.5 w DSG - Dark Iron Blue - 6 Weeks Old - Only 800 miles!

    The lost $s hurt and it's kind of embarrassing to make a mistake like this,, but as great as a GTI is, it just doesn't suit me well. I really thought the GTI would tide me over until I could get an Audi Q4 e-tron in a couple of years but... So, I leased a Porsche Macan S. I'm picking it up...

    Park Assist, Lane Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control - Worth Getting?

    "first world luxuries" sure sounds political.

    I'm thinking of upgrading to a '21 GTI Mk7.5 Autobahn which comes with Park Assist, Lane Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control. How well do these tech features work? Have there been any major issues? Anything I need to know before making the decision? Thanks.

    Anyone else struggle to find a comfortable driving position?

    When I did my research on the VW website before buying the GTI it did not list different seats as part of the Autobahn package but yesterday I did more extensive research and found it has 12-way power adjustable seats. I also learned the Autobahn has other features the VW website does not list...

    Anyone else struggle to find a comfortable driving position?

    I'm coming from a 2018 Audi A5 Sportback with sport seats and just took delivery of a 2021 GTI SE. I've yet to find a comfortable position in the GTI. I like the aggressive lateral support but the seat bottom and seat back are very hard and the lumbar adjuster is not very useful. I've owned a...

    PDF Manual for 2021 GTI?

    I think, and will confirm, an advantage of using the VW navigation function vs Apple CarPlay is that when you are using the VW Nav you also see driving instructions appearing on the little LCD display between the speedo and tach. I don't think you get that when using CarPlay navigation. So if...

    PDF Manual for 2021 GTI?

    Yeah, looking thru the hardcopy manual I see how generic it is. First thing I’d like to figure out is how to cancel a Nav route once you’ve started. The Nav confuses me because I don’t get what you tap to go back a step. Sometimes you can tap the surrounding screen and that works but sometimes...

    PDF Manual for 2021 GTI?

    Yup, that’s what VW Cust Service said, both 2020 and 2021 manuals don’t download. Doesn’t really seem like a difficult thing to do

    There’s a hard-copy manual in the car but I’d like to have a PDF on my phone & iPad. The car was just delivered a few hours ago so I’m trying learn all the little hidden features, etc.

    PDF Manual for 2021 GTI?

    VW has been very challenged in the software part of the business. Golf Mk8 launch was delayed for months in Europe by software problems and ID.3 and ID.4 have also had software issues. The just-announced alliance with Microsoft for software development for VW cars is a promising development.
