View Full Version : Interesting comparison of Golf Mk7 and Mk8 interior

I stumbled across this and found it very interesting.

YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X48c9lFX3NY&feature=youtu.be)

I think the interior is a real bummer with the Mk8 with regards to quality and the lack of hard buttons.
All the things mentioned in the video would annoy me.
The main thing that would annoy me is disabling the stop-start which would require
3 touch screen presses!
We still don't know if OBD11 modifications can be made with the Mk8. If it is, that would be great BUT my next concern is that the Mk8 is no longer a closed system therefore a "flag" may be sent to VW.

What are other people's thoughts?
I feel I am becoming an old man...

Thanks for the vid. I can see why he's not happy with a number of changes.

I agree, especially for the emphasis on touch-screen controls because currently, when I want to use the touch screen accurately, I need to rest one finger on the outer edge of the screen to stabilise my hand & then use another finger to touch the screen...The bumps while driving always work against me when i'm about to press the screen, hence the need to stabilise the hand...
