New Daily driver

Filling up again

Well thanks to you all for the advice while on tour, and the last pub session. Finally decided on a new daily for the commute now to the office. Sorry Teabag 996 is still on the bucket list and will have to be done one day, but practicality of dropping the kids off at school won over. So have ordered a new Golf GTI. 5 door for the kids and 7 speed DSG for the traffic across town. Performance kit and Dyna audio for me . Now just the wait for delivery. Hopefully mid march.

Good choice Steve. We're now in a race to see who gets their car first -- I think the Golf may win!

Cheers Mate, might be the only race it would win against the Porsche.

Nice car - covers the bases without compromising too much in any aspect... Not tempted by a Golf R...?

Are you buying or taking out a PCP/PCH...? Don't forget I can offer mates' rates on any form of procurement... (and my commercial prices are pretty damned competitive!)

Ahh guess what driving home yesterday, stopped in traffic and yes shunted in the back by an Audi A6!!!

Minor damage dent in the hatch, but due to the age of my wife's old car I guess it might be a right off. Waiting now for the garage to pick the car up. Insurance company dropped of a rental till its sorted out and guess what .... a new golf.

Ok not a GTI though.....

Cheers Frank and yes they do a very nice auto, have ordered the new 7 speed DSG auto box.
If you want something a little more ....sensible then the GT line with the 1.5 150bhp with the DSG is really good everyday allrounder....Seriously considered it myself.

Frank... as above... might be able to help with mates' rates on any form of car precurement!

(and if you trade as a sole-trader/partnership, putting it through the biz might be beneficial!)
