There have been a couple of GTI special editions - which are more sought after than the standard car. The GTI 30 (2007) celebrates 30 years of the GTI and gets a power boost to 230bhp. The Pirelli special edition - launched in April 2008 - gets the same power output as the GTI 30 as well us 'tyre tread' seats and unique wheels. The vast majority of cars will be kept within the Volkswagen dealer network, so expect prices to be high.
Examples from Volkswagen’s used approved scheme come with a one year, unlimited mileage warranty and one year breakdown assistance - hence the higher asking price.
The GTI is a desirable car so demand top money when it comes to trading in or selling privately. There's high demand for low mileage and cared-for cars while enthusiasts will prize the more powerful Edition 30 and Pirelli models.
