Why not go  for a petrol turbo rather than this turbo derv crap?.

Diesels have gone form saving the planet 10 years ago to killing the planet today.

Personally speaking I'd  only go the derv route if the car could be bought for buttons.

If you like the Golf go for the Golf R.......about 300 PCM on a PCP deal*

* In addition to a large deposit. :D 8)
Over the course of a year, it will save around 500 in fuel bills. The performance of the diesel is often better than the petrol., and they are a strong engine. In my opinion, of course.

Might be some fun in winter time then.  :y ;D
One of her teachers lived at the bottom of a hill. She bought a BMW1 and had to walk up the hill and get a bus from December to February.  ;D

Not a problem on the latest model as its front wheel drive (its a Mini in drag)

Speaking of the Mini. I followed a Mini Countryman the other day. That is one ugly f*ucker..... :( :(

Looking for something for Mrs O currently, looks like it's going to be a Seat Ateca 2.0 tdi and possibly the 4wd version. We had a 1.0 petrol one on lease a few years back which was great but I don't trust the longevity of the little 3 cylinder turbo engines.

 
Good choice, Jon, take no notice of moneybags  ;D

She works hard. Let her buy what she wants. As my old Mum used to say "theres no pockets in shrouds". :)
You're right, of course, Albs  :y
Just had a thought about the 320d. RWD, that would keep her on her toes  ;D

Lack of compliant suspension though, much like the Gtd

I've given myself a headache thinking about it, Enery, so I think I'll just ignore the whole thing until I can't ignore it any longer  ;D

I was led to believe the new wonder car from 1959 was named 'Mini'  because of it's compact size.

The 2021 Mini Countryman is the size of an ocean going liner. ::)

I've got an idea.....they could rename the larger Mini, ...... 'Maxi'.......pretty sure that name has never been used before. ::) ::)

Yes. Most other models are growing in size too, but the mini is definitely on better steroids.
