If you think this forum is dead, check out the mkv forum haha!
Most people I know from the mk6 days have switched over to the mk7...I bucked the trend by going with the mkv.

I've become something of a PQ35 apologist...I'm not fully on the MQB bandwagon.

This forum is really only dead relatively speaking. Its still getting a surplus of new owners and returning vets. As prices for GTIs drop to the more budget/modder friendly area we'll see a small growing but nothing compared to the year or two after the first MK6 launch

Though, I will say that the GTI community isn't as tight-knit as say the WRX community. Moreover, there seems to be separation between the generations on and offline. It feels like Mk7 drivers don't even acknowledge my Mk6. Whereas even my beater 09 Impreza is noticed and welcomed in the modified Subaru communities.


...Maybe it's just me...
I agree on the loose-knit family. I used to be a Toyota guy (I still am, but I used to be, too) and that enthusiast group sticks together through thick and thin, across models and generations. All the Celica, Supra, Corolla and MR-2 guys live together in harmony.
When I pass another GTI/R, whether it be a 6 or a 7, I always look but generally the other owners don't care.

Generally the ones who don't mod don't care. When i see a GTI or R modded I'll try a nod sometimes i get a wave or nod back sometimes i get a nice pull. Most the time my nod goes unnoticed.
