    South Africa
    Guili, This story is just for you. Last night on my way home I drive past a red Golf 5 with Revo and a few other tuning stickers on it! I was doing about 75km/h and he probably did 60km/h seeing that we were in a residential zone... As soon as I passed the Golf he put his foot down, catch up...

    General Motoring Discussion
    As many of you will know by now, I recently traded in the (thirsty) Alfa for an (economical) Golf. Whilst I was sorry to wave the Alfa off (there's nothing quite like a 166 :cool:), I'm pretty pleased with the new motor. Here are my thoughts about the new car: 2004 MkV VW Golf 2.0 GT TDi 140...

    General Motoring Discussion
    ...why are the mk V R32's from 2005 so friggin expensive? There's barely one under £12k with low mileage yet you can pick up a newer GT or 159 3.2 even for £3-4k less! Even the same age/mileage 130i's have fallen into the under 10k market

  12. VW Golf MK6 - not that roomy

    General Motoring Discussion
    My sister has a 2009 Golf diesel. Don't ask me what it is, because I grew up in an era when Golf GTi meant hot, and Golf diesel meant 'not'. All I know is that it has big wheels, it's black and goes like stink (and, like many modern VWs, it makes a mockery of the VW 'reliability' myth - its...
