147 1.9 JTD 16V

Sprint, AAV,

What can I say. She is a little miracle (right after te GTA that is )

Oh what fun we have. The power is great. The torque is plastic surgeon un-worthy.
The smiling lines will not disappear for the next two hours after you parked the car.

I killed my first Golf last tuesday, and you could actually see the guys face go .

No she handles fine, good response to the gas, at 200 Giri 305 Nm (standard), I drove 190km/hr at 3200 Giri (rpm), 140 Km/hr at 2500 Giri.(both in sixth gear)
The sound of her engine....and the fun of taking off at traffic light and on the highway when someone is on your tail.

Yesterday it even helped me out of a situation.
There was this old fool driving on the middle line of a country road, doing 40 km/hr. In a turn this guy almost hit a car coming from the other way. So right after that. Through a S turn
I was in 2nd gear and just pinched the gas pedal for a sec and we were past it. And she was like on rails.

So she is astonishing.

On taking off the *yeeeech* golf is faster, but on sprints from 80 - 120 the bella wins.

If you want more, just let me know.
See my pics and spec next to my avatar.
