Golf GTI Performance Pack – Has The Best Just Got Better?

gti 2

The Volkswagen Golf GTI – a car so good, I drove the delivery driver all the way to his next job. OK, it was only 20 minutes up the road but on a wet Thursday, it would have been much cosier to stay in by the fire.

Instead, me and Mr Delivery Man cooed about the GTI from the moment he slipped the key into my hand. We may be on Mark VI and I can still remember Mark I but this latest version is the best I’ve ever driven.

Within a couple of miles I was in lust with the Golf. It has this uncanny ability to make the driver feel like he has owned the car for years. Everything is exactly where it should be, the handling is terrific and there’s enough performance to make it exciting. Every day.

And so we come to the Performance Pack fitted on this car. Is it worth the £995 extra for 10bhp more under your right foot. £30k for a Golf GTI? Yes, I get the feeling it might be worth every penny…
