Watch out for any stalling of the mark ,it will cost you $1000 for new fuel pumps, and if it misses at low speed it will cost you $800 new coil packs And the DSG is the best thing ever fast changes smooth as and it only cost $400 to service .Unless you need new clutches $4,000 to fix

So checked out the gti original today, they're the same size as the standard 5 door gti, just sexier, i reckon with the back seats up I could fit my 3x10 or 2x12 in there, with the seats down easily fit the 4x12, and the daughter approves:D

So picked up the golf yesterday, what an amazing vehicle, comfort and performance and the sound system is quite incredible too, no gigs this week but I did a quick boot test and can fit the 310 in without folding the seats down but with the parcel tray off

After driving some rather basic vehicles forever this is certainly an eye opener, with the start stop system, auto lights, wipers and mirror dimming, being able to adjust throttle sensitivity, and the brake auto hold function, you can basically pull up at the lights, once you've come to a stop it'll keep the brakes on when you take your foot off the pedal and turn the car off once in neutral, then as soon as you depress the clutch it'll start again and when the clutch engages it'll release the brakes.

But the most amazing thing, this is the first car I've been in where my sunnies will fit the in sunnies holder :lol:
