Volkswagen Golf GTI 35 Edition - Are you GTI Enought ? First Official Promo
Volkswagen Golf GTI Edition 35
World debut at Wörthersee: 235 PS Golf GTI Edition 35 offers pure dynamic
Volkswagen celebrates 35 years of the GTI with 247 km/h special edition
Golf GTI Edition 35 has powerful 6 kg/PS and economical 8.1 l/100 km
Wolfsburg / Reifnitz, 31 May 2011 -- 35 years of the Golf GTI! Volkswagen
is celebrating the anniversary of this icon with the new Golf GTI Edition
35. 173 kW / 235 PS of power (25 PS more than the normal GTI) and a fast
247 km/h top speed; 6 kg/PS power density. It will be a collector's item
from day one -- arriving right on the 35th anniversary of the GTI legend.
Back in the summer of 1976 -- when the very first production GTI was
launched -- no one ever would have surmised what Volkswagen had just
unleashed. No one. Not even Volkswagen itself. Some things simply cannot be
planned -- icons included. And so the first Golf GTI surprised everyone:
buyers, competitors, the carmaker and -- on the Autobahn -- all those
drivers of other sports cars and luxury saloons who had never heard of such
a thing from Volkswagen, but were now being passed by it. Since then, the
GTI advanced to become the most successful compact sports car in automotive
history. 5,000 GTIs were planned -- yet the GTI of our day is irrepressibly
approaching the production milestone of 2 million units built!
6.6 seconds for the sprint. Now, the new Golf GTI Edition 35 is proving the
potential of this automobile. As always, it has front-wheel drive and
offers nonstop road grip thanks to its XDS electronic differential lock.
The Volkswagen converts each and every one of its maximum of 300 Newton
metres of torque (2,200 to 5,500 rpm) into forward propulsion. After just
6.6 seconds, the Golf GTI Edition 35 passes the 100 km/h mark. No other GTI
before it has been this dynamic. An optional 6-speed DSG can shift gears in
fractions of a second.
The engine of the Golf GTI Edition 35
235 PS and 300 Nm. When 173 kW / 235 PS of power (+ 25 PS compared to the
normal GTI; maximum power from 5,500 to 6,300 rpm) and a torque of 300 Nm
(+ 20 Nm; maximum torque from 2,200 to 5,500 rpm) act on the car with a
kerb weight of 1,400 kg, this unleashes vehicle dynamics that match those
of a purebred sports car in any measure of performance. Its acceleration
(0-100 km/h in 6.6 s) and top speed (247 km/h) are the usual statistical
measures, but much more important and typical of this GTI is its relentless
torque in every speed range. Step into the GTI, adjust the ergonomically
fitting sport seats and the sport steering wheel, turn on the ignition (by
key or optionally by button press) and a storm breaks loose. Acoustically
too: the GTI already has a full sporty sound, but new tuning of the sound
actuator makes it even sportier. Clearly, to discover the true potential of
the GTI machine, each owner of the new Golf GTI Edition 35 should really
visit -- at least once and with all due respect -- the North Loop of the
Nürburgring race course.
1,984 cm3 displacement. The engine employed in the Golf GTI Edition 35 is a
turbocharged petrol direct-injection
engine of the EA113 engine series. Those of you who are now thinking of the
all-wheel drive Golf R are on the right track. The two vehicles share the
same base engine. The 2.0 litre four-cylinder engine builds up its
propulsive power via a turbocharger with
intercooling. The GTI engine is controlled by a fully electronic engine
management system with E-Gas. The engine's pistons are equipped with
reinforced gudgeon pins. The connecting rod was also designed with greater
strength, so that it can reliably transfer high torque to the crankshaft.
The cylinder block was reinforced to handle the extremely high engine
forces that occur.
8.0 l/100 km with DSG. Despite all of its dynamic performance, the Golf GTI
Edition 35 is also efficient at combusting its preferred fuel (Super, 95
ROZ). The new GTI with manual gearbox offers a respectable combined fuel
consumption of 8.1 litres per 100 km (equivalent to 189 g/km CO2). In the
DSG version, these two values are improved to 8.0 l/100 km and 185 g/km

Volkswagen Jetta Removing Rear Door Lock Assy - Part 4
In this video, I go over the crappy service manual for the Volkswagen. Then
I show you all of the things that you're supposed to remove before you take
the inner door panel off. As you know, since my plastic rivets broke on the
bracket for the door locking module, I was able to get away from that.
However, I'm removing everything to show you the procedure. This will
include removing lock cylinder housing, removing door window, window guides
and quarter window frame. And finally, I believe we found the noise that
was coming from this side. Enjoy the video and thanks for watching!
