Cant afford a golf (but wouldnt bother anyway).

Looks better than a golf i think not bad looking at all.

Definately not absolutely trouble and engine management lights on then off all the while.Seat spares are very sexpensive too.

What are you likely to buy next?
Not sure but nothing vag group for sure parts not good quality probably go for ford as they are in my experience a better car(honestly).
