Does anyone else despise the new steering wheel shape and infotainment system and headlight controls. I think VW should go back to the drawing board with this. The 7.5 generation is better.

There's a reason that manuals aren't as available anymore, hardly anyone buys them, they lead to slower cars, they use more fuel and are essentially dead tech.

Trying to get a test drive of a 128 ti at the moment as a replacement to my beloved 125d. Hopefully the 5 door doesn't cramp shoulder space like the F20 did, (f21 is fine because of the longer doors)

It’s sad that an MK6 GTI has a higher quality interior than an MK8. No cheap plastic to be found anywhere and even the door bins and glove box are lined with felt or carpeting.

So the BMW is better looking, better performing, better made, just as practical AND cheaper... But the GTI is better at being a normal Golf (with adaptive dampers) than the 128 is at being a normal 1-Series. Yeah, you lost VW.

That BMW is the most horrible, pig ugly thing I've ever seen!! For crying out loud, someone give it mask!! Despite the Golf MK8 being a cheapened version of the previous MK7.5 (which was superb - far better than A3/bmw/Merc - as shown in Mat's video) the Golf is still more premium than the BMW (I've sat in them both) and it's definitely worth the extra £2,000 over the BMW.

VW is going downhill. I have a mk7.5 tcr, and it's much better quality than the mk8. Dieselgate ruined their finances I think, even the service quality is bad...

Wet Metallic Brakes - great advice from Mat. Lots of sporty cars have metal pedals and they are lethal in the wet. I've had many a slip in the past. Drying your shoes before you drive is a great Top Gear Top Tip from Mat. Or perhaps I should say a Car Wow How ... er .. I can't think of a punchy term here. Anyway, I dry my shoes if its been raining and before I drive my metal shod Alfa.

Matt. Well done on picking up in the integrated headrests of the Golf. It’s the main reason for not buying the car for me with kids in the back. Also, they can’t fit their iPads to the back of the headrest when it’s integrated

That brake pedal issue is no joke. Huge oversight by VW. The 128ti has been consistently hyped by the motoring press, and the motoring press has always had a soft spot for the GTI, so the Beemer must be pretty good. I’d get one for the wife in black but really it would be for me when I don’t need my larger touring.

For all these Gti's flashy-look-at-me-cars, a 0-60 in more than 5 seconds is very disappointing. It should all be under 4,99 seconds. That is the territory they should be at.

I just traded in my Mineral Grey M140i for my new 128ti, loved the M140 but the 128 is the better car, not as fast but better handling hands down and the interior quality is so much better its on a completely new level. No regrets at all and believe me the 128 is plenty fast enough on British roads and is so fun to drive. BMW have got the handling absolutely bang on.

Is it me or has Volkswagen raised there prices significantly in this model year. Both the R and Gti versions, even worse they are also saving costs by going down market. The non intuitive entertainment system is a showstopper.

Matt, you have not done your homework 🙈 Currently 128ti comes with the Pro package as standard, means digital cockpit and larger screen. Also with regards to the boot, the floor is not removable, but you can fold it away, so technically works the same as having a removable floor.

Very interesting as a VW girl and someone who likes to hate on BMW I can’t argue with a single point. The only thing is; I have been with someone pushing a TI to its limits and it doesn’t seem to like it very much over a longer period of time. Hats off to BMW for creating a great drivers car, VERY cool that VW went back to offering manuals!
