    MK4 GSI Owners, if you didnt have 1 what would you have......

    I was looking at vx220's n/a, god they drove good but with only 2 seats and thinking of starting a family it was just not pratical, but my fiancee has a corsa sri 1.8, so could have got around it, you never know when i get board of the Gsi vx22o turbo may be on the cards

    But happy with the Gsi at the mo, got more plans for her

    vx220 is nice and acracking car i dont doubt but not really what im looking for!

    im fine with losing power, alot of it if needs be, but i need some luxuries again, ive been spoilt with the gsi with the full heated leather, and all the goodies!

    i would like half leather, air con at least!

    When i was thinking of replacing the GSi aftermy crash i was looking more towards, Audi RS2, Bmw 330ci and M3 evo territory

    but none of them fits what you want... well possibly the 330Ci does, what about going for something like a BMW of some sort for luxury, or Possibly a VAG Diesel for economy and tuning,

    Just depends on what your willing to spend though mate

    i dont think hes talking about upgrading, more like if you didnt have a gsi wat would you have bought instead of it, for the same money, ie like 8-13k i guess

    yeh im not looking to upgrade im just looking for something better on fuel, not even alot just a little bit would help, and TBH i hate doing cold start short journeys due to the turbo!

    i dont really wanta diesel as i dont do that many miles!

    i know it doesnt really all add up what im saying but it does to me!

    i wouldnt be looking at putting any extra money down either so i would be looking at 8-9k!

    i was thinking along the lines of focus st170, as got the luxuries but hearing bad things about them on fuel!

    its only really a talking point anyway at the mo, my personnal circumstances have just changed so my mileage may drop a fair bit again, which really if i wasnt a lazy sod and walked to work like i used to would mean i could probably keep the GSi!
