Superb colour - really really love that.

The car is lovely too - and quirky, but until i've tried one, i'll reserve final judgement.

I trust your "thank you" letter from OPEC arrived shortly after the car ! LOL

Cheers Guys,

I've modded it already too!! Well, sort of. Took off the stupid, huge dealer sticker from the rear screen. I still fail to understand why people don't do this when they by a car. Seriously thinking about tints though. Must....resist....Modding[:|].

Foxy, lol, too true. But hey, it's a small price to pay[:D]. One plus point is it's happy to run on normal 95RON.

Jim

Nice lookin' car you got there jim,what happened to the golf m8[:D]
Long story mate.

Basically, small, niggly things were going wrong. Then bigger more expensive things. It was a choice of pay out a load on it now and in the future or cut my losses. It had become a constant worry. I was sad to see it go but know it was for the best[:^)]. Got a fair price for it P/X too so I'm happy enough.

There's also the local Chavs. The older mk4s have become affordable to them and it wound me up. I was flashed a few times by them[:(]. Still remember the look on one of their faces. He flashed going in the opposite direction. He seemed a bit confused when I gave him the finger. It's a shame, a nice marque is going the same way as many others and being spoilt by these people.

I just hope I don't see the Golf going around this area with a burburry wearing gimp behind the wheel. I'd be gutted.

Cheers, Jim

A very nice car you have there, the colour is great. I really like the dials with the rev counter being the main one. Smart.

lovely car, whats the performance like in them bad boys??
231bhp as standard. But a little bird has pointed me in the direction of a remap giving approx 270[:D]. The handling is the thing I really noticed coming from the Golf. It's on rails.

Cheers, Jim
