Hello all,

I finally managed to leave the clutches of vauxhall corsa and an astra Sri and bought myself a 2002 Golf TDi 5dr in reflex silver.

Best thing I have ever done in my life, the motor is a dream to drive and fuel economy is amazing compared to my 1.8 petrol 200 miles to a tank compared to 550 miles in my golf.

I have just received the car back from having the black bits colour coded (went for all the smooth trims and now it looks alot tidier.)

Im from Thamesmead in SE london/Kent. btw some amazing looking mk4's on here, excellent work!!!

Cheers Aaron

My old man lives in the flats opposite the boiler house. Sorry mate i ve got a camera but need to bloody get it working!

At the moment its only a standard GTI Turbo with leathers x reg. Only had it for 3 months love it. How old are you. Did you ever go to the rag it meets in crayford? Used to make me laugh all the "hot" hatches with like 5 subs in their boots.

I just turned 20 mate and ahhh RAG IT LOL. The ford fiesta and vauxhall nova gathering ground lol. I went to a few of them with my mate whos got a chavved up Escort LOL so we blended in well.

Ur motor sounds nice fella, do like a golf with leathers, if it werent for the fact i do high mileage and insurance i would have gone for the gti (did i mention cos of my gf aswell) but ho hum lol.

Hope to see u around some time, not that many nice motors round our way [:)]

150bhp engine is awesome fella! [6] Still get the 500+ miles to a tank, but it absolutely flies!! [:D]

And there's always more pull, in any gear!! Can't go wrong with a VW TDI of any sort!! [:D]

I gathered there is such a big jump in insurance groups for a reason lol. My mates still call em oil burners LMAO ......... i think we know what to say to that.

all you petrol owners dont get me wrong if i was older didnt have to travel 150 miles a day then i would have a gti turbo or 4mo. lovely cars. [H]
