    What does this car say about you?

    Well normall sporty and fast, just a shame this one didn't live up to my expectations.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    Cost to much for all the issues I have had.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    I would NEVER buy VW again, VW UK are a waste of time, even wrote to CEO who couldn't be bothered to reply then took all my problems to the board of directors and again they were not interested. I say stay clear of VW.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    Not sure maybe Kia as they have a GT version out soon.
