5 posts in this topic

Hello, I was just kinda wondering what kind of car these things are. Are they a fun drive? I dont realy care if they go that fast but do they feel fast and are they reliable? Thanks smile.gif

I had an Anniversary version and it was a fab car, had no issues in 7k miles.

Although the Top gear survey suggested that in the UK the Golf was the least reliable of all the 'golf' based vehicles, but best thing is go for a test drive, try to find one with recaro seats and 180bhp version of the engine.

The 1.8T is a great car. If buying from new I would go for the 180bhp version (or better still an Anni), you get 6 speed box, bigger brakes, sports suspension, K03sport Turbo and 30 more horses. The standard suspension is rubbish and even the sports suspension is not much of an improvement.

A simple re-map should have you knocking on the door of 210bhp no problem, this + suspension upgrade will transform a good car into a great car. I got one from new 5 months ago and have not looked back since...
