    Post Newbie heading back to a Golf - I think??


    Changing role (yea) but have to hand back the company car (boo), want a VW Golf having previously had 1x MK2, 2 x MK3, 1x Sharan - all bought at 4-6 years old with 60-70K and kept till at least 150K plus on the clock.

    Have narrowed down the choice but just want to 'kick it around a bit' as, to be honest, I'm almost too scared to choose having read & re read various posts

    I'll add some detail and post on the correct thread though (looking at MK6 so I assume MK6 thread??)

    There is not much that can replace a Golf 2 and I once would say that about Golf 1 but the Golf 3 was only useful for the bits that could be used to upgrade the 2 and the best Golf 4 was the Skoda Octavia 1. However the Golf 6 GTI is a very talented car and everything the Golf 5 should have been but was not!

    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.
