..... a 1999 VW Golf V5 2.3
Borrowed it from a mate the other day while my coupe was in rehab. Its an early one so only the 150bhp model but its quick and torquey. Nothing like the coupe (obviously) but still good to drive.
Heated leather seats
Climate control electronic heater thingy
Engine note (being a v5!)
Leccy windows all round
Blue dash (must get this done to mine)
Handling was crap - very wallowy
Bolster-less seats - with them being leather you slide around a lot
No cruise control
No steering wheel controls for the stereo
Climate control electronic heater thingy (could never get it just right )
Fuel economy - £30 for 190 miles?!
Was initially planning buying it as I love the look of the mk4 golf but the dis-likes were far more outstanding than the likes.
Maybe the 170 bhp later version is a better car? Parkers say the 170 has better economy but I doubt I will find out.
