    I personally think the MK5 is a stunning lookin car, much quicker than its last models (apart from the R32) and has loads of potential for tuning.

    It can now be bought with the DSG paddle gearbox which sounds good. Would consider it, but I don't get a discount like I do on the Vauxhalls otherwise I would consider.

    I've never seen the fascination in Golfs myself - they're just fat boxes to me.

    But each to their own

    Just been on there Golf gti web site and to get the golf up to the spec I would like your looking at DSG gearbox,met paint,18inch wheels. sun roof, sat nav, xenon headlights and cruise control, yes thats even an option, I am looking at £25,225. I hope the VXR Astra is better equiped.

    Nice exterior terrible interior, I prefer the mk4 interior to the mk5, or the fabia interior to the mk5.

    Big let down to be honest, but would love to drive one just to see whats its like. Also my mk4 although has confirmed to me a firm liking for the brand the build quailty and dealers are big negative points but also very important when you are spending not far of 30k for a hot hatch.
