Summary

4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Forget the badge, this is a good car.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Bit surprised but understood after I took them up the road!

Would you buy this car again and why?
No they don't sell it any more but if they did I wouldn't not. Had a shock when read up on the car after I brought it. Yes it does burn more oil they any car I have owned but what do you expect when it's 180 bhp from a 1.4 It's fun cheap to run and insure, don't be put off by the reports!

What are you likely to buy next?
Just brought scirocco dsg.
