Thanks for all the comments guys. I'm driving it really gently, its just nice cruising in it and not flooring it. My dad and I have worked hard for this car and as bjs said, the last thing I wanna do is wrap it round a lamp post.
Its no comparison, but driving this car reminds me of driving my BMW when I had it.. its just so easy and requires no effort at all but the power is there when you want it - all you got to do is put your foot down.
I've got the car to drive pretty much whenever I want. We bought it for the both of us to drive but we had trouble finding insurance at a decent price coz i'm under 25. I bought the Golf coz i'm still in uni and the BMW attracted the wrong people plus I wanted to save some of the money from the insurance payout (BMW was stolen).
Hope the weather gets better so that I can put the roof down 
Even though it's an auto I see you get the spare "free" clutch pedal 
I hate those foot operated park brakes, they foul where your foot is if you are driving spiritedly and need somewhere to brace yourself round corners etc.
Not as irritating as on manual mercs (SLK excepted) - then not only is is still in the way but all THREE other pedals are offset towards the door! Quality or what? In an emergency I'm sure someone must have tried to stamp on the "handbrake" rather than the clutch [V]
