Bought this car from one owner a lady, i was shocked on how quick if was for a diesel. The car was chipped to 200 Bhp from 150. I think 150 is enough power.
Driving this car was so smooth and comfortable no squeaks or rattles.
The engine pulls like a tank through all gears and response is instant when accelerating.
The mileage is now 155,000 and the fuel consumption is fantastic. I have not done a check to what miles to the gallon it does, only know that just putting a tenner in last me three to four days driving around town.
Exterior has a rear roof spoiler not all models have this and the paintwork is in bright tornado red that gleams after a good polish of autoglym wax.
The interior is nicely styled with black a red recaro seats it has electric windows, heated mirrors and a sunroof which is a bonus. The red and blue dash lights stand out which is a + from VW
Just an all round solid built reliable car.
I think i will still own this car in 4 years time with how good it is better than my other car an Audi A5.
