    At speeds lower than 20 mph it's **** add that to laggy turbo diesel behaviour and it's not the smoothest thing in the world round town. I like to drive smoothly and the A3 like to make me look a right learner twonk sometimes
    Still loving the 130i like the sideways dirtbag I am

    Well I sat in a new Scirocco tonight and I have got to say if the Mk6 golf interior is anything like that then the A3 is streets ahead in quality.

    LMFAO this is true, yet to be determined if its a he or she, maybe its a HESHE or SHEHE, lol anyway enough personal jokes, so anyone like Supermarket Sweep

    Moving forward, the MK6 isnt far of a MK5 interms of styling, no real major differences tbh that make me go ooooh lovely new car, have to have, rocco ye, but mk6, no, cant see point.

    I said clearly IMHO, that doesnt mean anyone else has to agree with me, but yeah the GTI, not a bog standard golf, but GTI does look better styled externally than the equivalent A3 SLine, its beyond a doubt better looking externally, again I say IMHO only

    & my planet is taken from test driving both cars & looking at various different ones over months deciding if I wanted one or not, A3 I got ticked more boxes at the time, so thats what did it even if the GTI was better looking at the time, but with some money well spent I like what the A3 looks like at the moment, but the GTI & R32 do still turn my head everytime I see one, its just a shame the interior turns me away

    Scirocco is based upon the Eos, which is the Mk5 dash with different air vents. For MY10 they're changing the instrument cluster to include the white DIS from the Mk6/A3 and also moving to a Mk6-style MSFW (which is nicer, but has something of a Corsa VXR about it).

    Standard kit is quite generous though, so I guess they had to save money somewhere.

    2007 Mini Cooper S 1.6T Chili - gone but still causing me headaches...
