Still good looking

8 years old and still a good looking and current car. I love how unique the CTR fn2 is nothing else like it on the road apart from the new one that's just been released.

Everyone laughed when they released the 8th gen and said it was too futuristic.

I think it's just right. As you said the CTR is very unique. And a head turner even though it's 8 years old.

when they were first released I couldn't take my eyes of the cars whenever I saw them. I knew that was the car I must have next. However after 6 years of ownership I did get used to the shape and actually started seeing it as looking dated towards the end. I hated the 9G hatchback at first (the back mainly) but it has grown on me now, although I still prefer the Tourer shape to the hatchback. I agree though, the 8G are still great looking cars.

It's been a huge change to me having this car as I've always had mk2 golf gti's. Still love them but they are very dated so this is like a spaceship to me hahaha.

I love it ! i just can agree.
It looks more like a "future"car, than the actual ones and at the same time the FN is more understated, but has a lot of sharp edges in its design.

Yes mate looks good. Think I'll give it a go. Would you go on top of the bilt hamber. Can't see at being an issue.
