    Me car broke down (shuddering, but not Coilpack? - now at Reading Audi - Gulp!), but I have a TDI in it's place. Thought it might be of interest to feedback on this new Golf. (45 miles on the clock)

    • It's ****, love the Glow at night, but everything else is just too predictable, boring and strangely noisy (engine, tyre noise etc) for a modern and rather expensive car. :no:
    Verdict, stick with Audi (if I ever get mine back)! :ermm:

    I tell you what I forgot to mention, and is the best bit of the car. There are two red (laser-type) lights that are embedded in the interior (over head) lights, which make the gearstick glow red. Could this be an easy mod on the A3!!!?

    hmmm I have a S3 and a mk5 golf TDI and tbh the golf is vry impressive. I drove one with 8 miles on the clock and it was aweful but now with 16k on this one its v good.

    Handles well for what it is, brakes are poor when pushing it but pick up and go are good .... then theres the 45 mpg av :)

    1.9! For me the layout was just a wee bit uninspiring...too functional.

    ah I didn`t like the 1.9 `s either trim wasn`t as nice, there is quite a diff between the 2 cars imo.
