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

Octavia has 95% of the performance and 100% more comfort. But then I'm not female, so I can't appreciate the aesthetics.

Alternatively, maybe take the astra to a young man with his hat on backwards who will give it GTD levels of poke.

Neighbour is happy with his '11 chipped Octavia VRS but it's a pig to work on thanks to VWs ridiculous design team.

Hers is the K with 1.6 135 bhp engine, but you're missing the female point here. Astra is 66 plate, therefore, old now. Golf looks nice, esp that one with GTD written on the front.  ;D
I mean, your missus insisted on a picanto  ;D

Women are scary when it comes to cars, my missus keeps on about how pretty Toyota Aygos are I'd sooner keep the old faithful Scooby ,but she may get her way.

I will do everything in my power to avoid paying close to 20,000 for a diesel golf, but once a girlie has her heart set..... :-X

I told her she could have a nice jag for that money. She said they were horrible. Now can you see what I'm up against?

Swmbo says I should get rid of all three of mine and buy a nice little Mini Metro, which to her is the more modern version of the 1964 Mini she had as her first car.  ;D
When I mentioned they stopped making them nearly 30 years ago she looked at me like Im some sort of remedial.  ::)

Might as well get her what she wants. If she likes it she will be happy she made the right choice. If she hates it it will be your fault for making her get that bloody car.  ;D

The only thing that could sway it for me is reliability. I'm not saying the golf is not reliable but, if I don't fight her on it (she'll really dig her heels in then) but mention the most important thing is her getting to work (she loves that job with a passion) and I'm not really sure...I've heard some stories...it's up to her, of course...... ::)

If she liked it... :-\
I'd let her drive her astra for another ten years, if I could get away with it.

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

Exactly, slow and harsh, if diesel is the need then avoid the GT spec and getting something that's not gong to shake every bone in the body
