Been there; owned an E46 325i which always got rave reviews in the press; I came back to another MKIV Golf. BMWs do handle well(ride suffers though imo) but other than that; mine was expensive to fuel/insure, barely quicker than 1.8T, no better built, numerous faults(visited garage 8 times in 12 months) and local dealer is even worse than average VW dealer.

some funny comments there lads!! well done!! i know, i may regret it at some point but need a bigger car and there aint nothin other than a golf in vw's range that i fancy other than toureg (how much!!!?). so have bought a 5 series diesel with lots of toys on it, sat nav, telly, pokey engine, leather, pdc...blah...blah...couldnt really let this one slip by either. thing is golf prices are slipping now the mk5 is out and tbh i thought get the best price for mine now before its worth naff all or has 100K on it.

How about a 535d or even better, the new 335d that's on the way.

Twin turbo diesel lunacy!

525d @ Richard W. couldnt justify the extra costs, like between 3 & 6K for 20bhp more! same everything else so think got a bargain. no, suppose not quite a golf nutter no more...though i still lust after MK1 GTi's and who knows i may venture into that money pit again in the future.

already a member there and at bmw car magazine forum! was sad to see the golf go, but cant argue with the fact that the 5 series is a better car (sorry!) and i am sure someone will prove me wrong on that! :)
