    Hi all

    Buying a gti 63 plate from a dealer that has told me it has the performance pack as advertised.

    How can I find out if this is the case?

    When I put reg number in for my insurance comes up with 220ps would this be right?

    Vehicle has 18' austin and standard brakes but has pan roof and from reading a Jezza Clarkson article in telegraph about gti he said you don't get upgraded wheels with performance pack with pan roof so who knows!

    Anyways anyone tell me how I find out for sure?

    Cheers

    Ok so I've found out now from vwuk that this doesn't have the performance pack as non vw dealer advertised. Was due to collect on Saturday but am wondering about cancelling over being mis sold. Is the pack worth having or will I ever notice? I'm no fast racer BTW what's the performance pack worth?

    I'm in a quandry over what to do....mk7 GTIs are hard to come by where I live, Norwich and I really like them.

    The PP has bigger brakes and a fancy diff, but both are only noticeable when driving hard, 90% of the time you will not see any difference. As long as it is priced accordingly I would say buy it if you are happy with the car, but if the dealer is pricing it as the PP, which was nearly £1000 extra, then you need to renegotiate.
