    Do you think VW try really really hard to come up with the most boring, blandest and tiresome looking cars they possibly can? This is supposed to be the 'new' Golf. It looks like they've changed the grill and lights slightly, otherwise it may as well be a face lift. But apparantely it's a whole...

    My Dad has a '99 "T" VW Golf and it was the 110BHP, the mechanic he has taken it to has said the turbo seals have gone and thats why its been at a loss for power and leaking oil all over our drive. He has just bought a new turbo from E-bay. Its the official Golf one, second-hand, but, its from...

  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    We want to get rid of our RX-8 and the top runner at the moment is the Alpha GT but a key question I can't seem to find the answer to (until I get to a dealer!) is...can you get a set of golf clubs in the boot! If anyone could answer this it would be really helpful - and I know, I should tell...

    My GF has recently bought a Bravo Sport Multijet (Oct) and her brother has just got a Golf Sport TDi. Both similar models (though Bravo 4k less!) I thought it would be interesting to see how they both get on. Aside from my own bias towards the Fiat (in every way by the way!), the latest is...

    Had to just write and tell you guys about this. My Ti went in for a little work yesterday ( Brake Fluid sensor ). The dealer left me a 147 1.6TS. What a revelation ! I know folk have always said about the “Alfa experience” and what a joy it is to hear the Alfa engine note and experience the...

    Hi all, just wondering if anybody has any idea of an estimate for changing the timing belt on Golf. It's a 01 1.4L bog standard golf, nothing fancy. A colleague in work has been quoted what I considered an outrageous price. I don't have a breakdown of the price but my estimate would be maybe...

    Guys, Me and my friend Tom went out last night in each of our cars to see who's was really the fastest. Me in my 1998 Mitsubishi Galant 2.5 V6 and he in his 1989 VW Golf GTi 16 Valve 3 Door. We did every possible variation of determination we could think of from Drag styled burn offs, to...

    Hi Guys, Last night I was cruising home from the shops in my GTV (2.0 TS) and this guy in a brand new shiny Valkswagen Golf R32 decided to engage in a race at the lights. Long story short, my 2.0 kept up with him and started to pull away coming into third gear? Arn't the R32's supposed to do...

    Guys, I had a discussion thread in the off topic forum regarding the choice of cars I was looking at for my wife - The options were the 1 series, Golf & 147. I'm afraid I had to drop the 147 due to the boot been far too small for a family car, The 1 series got [email protected] reviews and the golf has just...

    I am going to go test drive one I think. No I am not selling the GTA for a golf, but I am sick to death of every review comparing a car to the golf as THE 'benchmark' I don't get it, sure they are good but I know a few people who have had problems and one that traded up her golf for a Vauxhall...
