    Hi everyone,
    My son is very seriously thinking about buying this car from a main dealer and I was wondering if anyone could just kick the tyres please? :)

    Regards

    Has he considered the Golf 1.4 GT TSI 170 DSG, he can get a new one for £17.5k from drivethedeal?

    It's quite interesting technology having both a supercharger and turbocharger on small cc engine. It seems to offer a good balance of; cost - efficiency -power.

    :) He knows what he wants. If we are all honest with ourselves then any modern car has more than enough ooompphhh. The GTdoes not look nowhere near as good as the Gti :)

    Just seen the car is from Richard Alexander, the company I used to work for got their company cars from RA both from Leeds and Bradford and I used to put quite a lot of business their way. If theres anything I can do with regards to trade in values etc I would be quite happy to talk to them to see if they can improve their offer.

    kindest regards
    Ian

    I live in Leeds and this is my nearest dealer. Had VWs for 10 years (still got one) but would recommended you avoid Richard Alexander. After service is virtually non-existant.

    Thank you both very much indeed.
    I have watched a certain Gti being tested:devil: :D :D (humour)

    At the moment the deal might be falling through :eek:

    It was on when I submitted the post but the sales person has since come back wanting an extra £1k and that at the moment is not going to happen.:mad:

    Hi Beetnik,
    Thank you very much indeed for the input.

    This is one of their own demonstrators and we liive in South Devon so the car would never be gracing their workshops :) but I take onboard your post and am very grateful you took the time to submit it.

    Regards
    John

    It looks a nice car John, but hold on to your ideals; if the deal is changing, walk away, be strong

    Number one son appears to be satisfied with the financial arrangements, so is there any chance of any of our illustrious members going and having a look please.

    The sales person he is dealing with is not available but the car has not been sold.... Yet :eek: ;)

    Regards
