Most of it I love ...... Its a fantastic car.

But things i dont like about it.

1. Everytime you start the car, The seat belt warning starts to 'Ping' at you ! errrrrrrr

2. Unlock the car and the headlamps turn on WTF ?

3. Lock the car and the lights stay on

4. New car, it should have had a new design key.

5.The looks it gets, quite imbarrasing really.

1. Earlier models dont do this.....thank god

2. & 3. Can you change these on the 'convenience' menu? Otherwise get into the habit of lock/unlock/lock and the lights go off

4. Good point

5. But you love it really [;)]

1. True. Esp. when driving in/out the garage.

2 & 3 You can change these on the convenience menu. I really like it. Looks great when you unlock the car at night and it all lights up.

4. Yeah. Should have key less entry & ignition really these days

5. But that's the point isn't it? [;)]

6. I don't like the black rear valence & side skirts. These should be colour coded as standard.

7. The CD player should be capable of playing MP3s. The Astra & Focus can!

Maybe a bit of Volvo/Saab DNA in there [:(]

I'm suprised there is not an auto-light activation function.

The come-home function is very useful, unless your Wish (and many others I expect) who use the garage. But I have to agree the car does look classy then lit up at night with those fogs.

let's hope it uses less petrol than the Focus RS, i take it the quality is way above the Ford ?, How does it compare in terms of performace, my test drive was rather brief, however the torque felt strong

The Focus is more of a rally car, if you get what i mean.

The Golf is much more refind, Its more of an everyday car, the focus is much more suited to the track.

Both Great cars !
