    You wanted a golf tdi but could not afford it.

    Fuel economy, looks and colour - Galia blue.

    What was the dealer like?

    The sales guy was really spot on, to be honest the purchase was a rash one, I had not gone with intention of buying but the deal they were giving was too good to refuse.

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Goes well, surprisingly quick. Cruises on motorways without issue and overtaking never a problem. Have not tested it to the limits for cornering but it feels pretty confident. Ride is a bit hard but not uncomfortable.

    What's it like to park?

    Easy with reversing sensors, plenty of glass so visiblity good. Steering light.

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    DPF filter came on once which was a concern as the previous car had same issues. Luckily a blast up the motorway sorted that and i have had no problems since.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Downsizing from a laguna estate this is not the most practicle car but it takes 4 and a weekly shop. The golf clubs just about fit in the boot.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Cruise control, auto wipers, aux input for mp3 player, hands free phone kit.
