I have ordered a Golf GTD!  :smiley:
I used to have mark 5 GTI and the fuel economy was abysmal.
Yes it went like a bat out of hell until the engine disintegrated
at 4,500 miles!!! VW did not want to know about exchanging the car! which was disappointing
to say the least.
I have always liked the Golf and obviously I looked at the GTI but in the end
that engine put me off.
Incidently have paid £20,063 for the Golf in mettalic and 18 inch alloys from uk main dealer.
(currently driving an Audi TT 57 plate)
I have driven the GTD and yes its not got quite the urge of the petrol engine
but if I had gone GTI I would have had that engine worry at the back of my mind.

the mk6 gti has a new engine. not the one used in the mk5. :nerd:

I needed to slow down :wink:
We are all different and hence my choice I preffered the interior
to the GTI I did not think the red stiching would wear well.
I like the car being understated also,
but as I have said its a personal choice.
I loved my GTI mark 5 but unfortunately its tainted with bad memories
hence my 2 year defection to Audi which incidently has been an awesome car!!
in looks and performance!!!

It's such a personal thing, isn't it?  I've found the conversations here invaluable in helping me decide exactly what I want - even if it's not what others are urging me to have.  Nothing concentrates the mind like other people explaining their pros and cons, even (especially!) if you end up agreeing to differ.
