    They definately look better in flesh and if the dealer was willing to do a deal I dare say I would have ordered one.

    But I ended up getting a 3 series coupe instead.

    Enjoy your test drive Mister.C and let us know if they are as good as the press reports

    In the Flesh:
    Looks ok from the front, but the VW badge is way too big for the front end. The rear shoulders look worse than they did on the fiat bravo many years ago, and they have been streamlined on the newer bravo. The shoulders simple drag the rear quarters out of proportion and exagerate the very small rear window.

    Ok car, but is it the best VW could do? IMO 6/10

    Cheers MB - I've got a couple of days leave to use so I've planned them cunningly to be at exactly the same time as the 48 hour test drive!

    Its a company car shoot out between this one and the A3 and its neck and neck - so really looking forward to trying this one with a genuinely open mind. And having diesel for the last 3 years it will be nice to finally get into a 2.0T!

    After poking around one at my local stealers, I would still put my money on a Golf GTI... they need a HOT version and call it a GT<something> or R<something> with bigger wheels and deeper sills for me to be interested.

    Well I am thoroughly enjoying the test drive of Mr Rocco. The engine is a little beauty and has had me grinning for the last few hours.

    I'm hardly that well versed in the world of cars - not really driven that many. But to me it feels like a good one.

    Overall view is positive. I can see why some may not like the looks - to me it looks fine, whereas the Mrs really likes it. You can see the Car's phat ass poking out in the wing mirrors!

    The demo colour I have is rising blue; some would say too common a Rocco colour but for someone whose last 2 cars have been black then it feels fresh!. I like that, and white, but not sure if I'm fancying all that car washing if I chose white - black is hard enough!. The demo has sat nav and leather; good options but not ones I think I'd spec, should i get one. Expensive and not ones which are on my must have list. The interior is fine to me, though again I can see some who think its a tad bland. . But its doesn't offend me. Standard audio sound good, driving position excellent, & handling was fine.

    Negatives, well not too many thankfully so far and none of them unexpected. The boot, whilst roomy enough, is not that easy to get shopping in and out. The interior area, such as the cupholders also look a little cheap, but its a cabin I wouldn't have a problem spending time in.

    Right, must dash, got some testing to do!

    Finally, would I get one? - it will all be down to the (comparable) company car lease cost which I am awaiting from our gaff's leasing company which I'll be able to compare with the A3. If the price is right, then it is definitely a contender.

    Sounds like the press have been right about the car then enjoy the next 48 hours and give us a final write up!

    Scirocco

    I think they are Fuggly. And a bit pointless, the Gti does the same job, looks better. VW just cashing in on the name. Next stop Allegro Gti from that dreadful Chinese outfit.

    Do you think they could have made the rear bumper any bigger??

    And I still can't get over the size of the rear window?

    very poor effort

    I'm honestly not sure whether it's cool or not. Thing is, It's being brought into the market specifically to sell to trendy types.

    I'm gonna say Uncool. But I listen to Pink Floyd, so what do I know...

    aye, all the new cars coming out nowadays are looking even more similar then previous, like a giant blob had been dropped from height and set like it.

    Short and fat, bit like the welsh

    We had one in the work car park on trial from the leasing company.

    Nice looking beast to be honest, not subzero but you can't argue with what you get for the same money as a GTI. It's stonking value.

    Via our works lease company - also got a 48 hr test drive of the A3 2.0T FSI quattro Sline as well. 24 hours would have been enough but any less and I can't really get a feel for whether the car is what I would be looking for.
