    A lot of people neglect to remember that when they buy an expensive car which has depreciated around 60% of its original value after three years, the running costs will still be for a 60k car despite buying it for 25k. An example of this might be the Porsche 911 which has dropped in price dramatically but it's still going to cost a bomb to run.

    I kind of made this mistake when I had the R32 for the first month, when I needed to get a lot of things changed and it cost me 120 a week in fuel. Although I got it for a good price, the running costs were very high compared to my S3 at the moment.

    i would take an audi conversion over the mk5 every day of the week.
    drove the Mk5 R32 when they first came out, great noise but I don't like the buidl quality or interior compared to the audi.

    I am on my 2nd Mk5 DSG GT since released. I like it but the handling is a bit.....spongy. only word i could think of to describe it. not engaging enough. needs a complete brake and suspension swap out.
    I like the DSG box but doubt it could handle a TT R32 engine...
