Guess i'm about as new as ***** owners get - bought my first ever one today, its the 156 JTD 1.9 Mjet veloce s/wagon (04).
Had to go 150 odd miles to get the right one in the end but on the bright side that, of course, meant 150 miles of driving her home!
Which all went smoothly until very end of the journey when i'm pulled over literally outside my own front door because insurance company haven't updated my details yet.
Of course the policeman gives it "You'll regret buying that, unreliable, cost you a fortune" etc... Which seems to be a fairly standard reaction. He then goes on to inform me that his ex-wifes new partner has one so obviously just bitter in this case.
Anyway by this stage i'm smitten and no amount of drawing in of breath is going to put me off.
Look forward to sharing info on these forums but for now I just have to resist the urge to sleep in my car tonight!
