Sounds a good price, although you've got to add the price of metallic paint and I'd, of course, want a sunroof which would add another £400 or thereabouts. However all the other extras that I would have liked, but never got, are now standard fit - at least at the moment!!!!!I think the differences are a bit more than minor - you get the body coloured side mouldings and door handles etc (black plastic ones made the SE look naff), plus they are throwing in an alarm, auto lights, auto wipers, centre arm rest, ipod prep, cruise control, highline computer and mult-function wheel.
Prices start at £14,995 RRP for the 1.6FSI (5-door).
Downsides: alloys are only 15", you pay extra for dual zone climate (as usual) but apart from that, a smart looking, well equipped Golf for the money.
