Value

Great value for money I think! Got it from a VW dealer for 6.5 k! with their warranty to boot!

Costs

Not dented my wallet yet! Fuel economy is good unless you go a bit crazy with the performance along with the aircon!

Hardworking 1600 engine which is very torquey and responsive!

The only thing i have had a problem with is the VW 6 cd auto changer playing up and not reading my CD's! but fixed under warranty!

I got it in red which looks sporty! Non offensive good looking car!

Comfort

4 out of 5

Quite a hard ride! But hey its a GTi! Seats are comfortable! Climate control is a welcome standard extra! When it gets dark and the lights come on the dash surrounds you with a wonderful blue glow! Good rear leg room!
