    Well. I've had the car just over a week. MPG currently 48. In terms of drive it feels just like a mark IV TDI I used to run in terms of power delivery and changing up gears very quickly. The car is exceptionally quiet and comfortable. As for fun, my other car is a Boxster S so that ticks that box...

    So, another couple of weeks and MPG now up to 51-52mpg. One thing I find really surprising about this car is that at 70mph on the motorway it turns over at only 2400 rpm. My Boxster is at 2800rpm with 3.4 litres of engine, I appreciate that the boxster will accelerate at 70 in sixth gear, but the Golf doesn't feel stretched at this speed with only 999cc under the bonnet and it will go uphill at that speed quite happily.

    Very impressed so far with refinement, efficiency, and performance.

    Very happy to stop these updates if people would prefer?

    Only the future knows how reliable these things will be but based on the older down sized engines it does not look good, even for a garage owner like me. At least they have dropped those stupid cam chains and gone back to a reliable, and most importantly, serviceable.... cam belt system.

    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.
