    nearly defected!

    first apologies , as the title says i nearly defected to the vw side.
    have been a thinking about getting a derv, so test drove a Scirocco tdi.
    I'm not impressed, the engine was a 170 tdi, which is very similar to my 1.8 tfsi in a lot of ways, so the box is ticked there. everthing else was a let down for me. ride height to too high but what lets in down is the quality of the interior, nothing like my SB sline. seating very flimsy, plastics all feel cheap, the 8 speaker system sounds poo to say the least!

    what was i thinking, will be sticking to what i know best

    The Scirocco looked great on release but after about a year it seemed to fade into mediocrity. A guy at work bought the 2.0TFSI on release with full leather interior, I thought it was nice although not on par with the A3/S3 interior...

    you don't have to go that far to realize the mediocrity of other cars. drove the a1 recently and it was absolutely terrible. if that thing isn't a proton kalisa underneath with a "prettied" interior then audi have got everyone fooled

    I nearly did yesterday as well down to a polo gti amazingly fast and love the dsg but not cost effective for my annual mileage plus the quality is no where near the Audi. Oh yeh they wanted to give me £16k now for the car 2.0tdi black edition with 20k on the clock and only £14k in November once the polo would be built. Oh and finally who would pay £21k for a polo definitely I couldn't!!
