    MK 7 Golf GTD best all rounder

    I have an Up which really was a fill in for my next Car. its great I really love it and even thought about holding out for the GTI one. Now I have also tried not to be bios when it comes to choosing but having own a MK 4 GT TDI 130 my heart yearns for the MK 7 GTD which I will be looking to get around Sep this year.

    Reasons it ticks all the boxes for me anyway and that could be because of my age not quite ready for a Skoda Octavia VRS which comes close though.
    Ive been looking for the last year to see if there is an alternative and there really isnt well not with the same blend of practicality,performance, looks, style economy and running cost.

    My top five alternative 2.0L A3 S line 3 door & 4 door saloon , 1.4 TSI Golf R-Line ,20L tdi Scirroco R-line, Skoda Octavia VRS. There have been some considerations to none vw cars too but they have all been eliminated except for one the focus ST which is just out side my top five alternatives.

    They are all great cars but the GTD just seems to pip them at something.

    What do you guys think?

    If you buy a Diesel, make sure it is Euro 6 emissions compliant, especially where you live.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
