Just thought i'd check in.

I currently have a 2.0 TSI Scirocco which has been a superb car for the last 4 years (give or take) i have owned it, however i'm on the look out for something new, plus there are hundreds of Sciroccos on the road now, it was very very rare when I first got mine.


Over the last couple of month i have flirted with the idea of a 320D, Merc 220CD Coupe (good finance deals) but the diesel didn't really do anything for me. I also considered an Audi A5 (too meh) and TT (too common) but i have also kept an eye on GT. I have been following the GT86 through the development stages and i quite like what i see in the flesh. I'm not 100% sold yet but i'm coming more round to the idea (I like the turbo'd cars and the extra torque i.e. I like a lazy drive). But I took a dark blue GT out the other weekend and it did induce a grin!


I'm debating whether to wait for a few months to see whether any ex demos come on thesecondhand market or just buy one new.


Anyway, that's about for now.

Welcome. Sorry I/we didn't spot this sooner - must seem quite rude.


I fear the current supply of demonstrators seem to have had a good ragging from mile zero.



It may be wise to wait a while as we early adopters are getting little or no discount/deals and long lead times. Waiting until the new year may see 'hot' version(s) as well as the TRD.

I'm not too worried about the engine been "broken in" as it were. When i test drove the GT the sales manager said there was a grey one ready for the last week in september, so the lead time didn't seem too bad at that point. I have also seen that a few dealers are already getting their demo cars on autotrader. With the 5 year warranty being offered i wouldn't even mind waiting a year and getting a car that had the balance of the manufacturers warranty remaining.

Too true 'ICantAffordAnLFA '
This is a very good different car that will stand out from the others so if you want to be noticed the buy one
