Golf GTD
« on: 03 May 2021, 18:45:03 »

Been looking at these as a replacement for wifey's astra later this year. Can't believe the price of a three year old, automatic one, very expensive car.

Possibly the most pointless car of all time, the harshness of a GTi ride with a soot chucker under the bonnet

Non gti handles and rides well. I love my 2.0 diesel and auto.  Just done 520 km today on mixed roads.. why not have another Astra Zeneca?

No point, might as well keep this one as get another. They've stopped doing anything with a decent diesel now.

One of my team had one, he gave me a ride in it once, and only once. Thankfully he swapped it not long after for a w212 diesel, which was much better to be a passenger in.

It just isn't fast enough to justify that level of discomfort. If you really must have that engine and box combo, I would have the Octavia vrs, or the superb.

If not, a non-GTD diesel golf would be better in almost every respect.  :D

Soot chucker is the whole point. 55mpg and 0-60 in 7.2s. But plenty of time to consider yet, her astra has another 8 months on the Vx warranty I took out.

Hmmmm....but, performance wise, she might as well keep her astra.

Anyhow, it's a while away yet. I'll sit her in one, and then it's up to her.
