Glad that you got sorted and stuck to your guns.

Gossa's tornado red does look the biz I must admit.

Why thank you! I must say it isn't so shiny today! It needs some love this weekend, full claying, polishing, waxing and taxing.....

I can't find anything that compares in quality and drivability to my old Edition 30!!

Therein lies the problem - you won't find anything that compares, so you'll need to compromise after a Golf :afro:

IMO, if it was a straight choice between CTR and Leon, I'd plump for a Civic on the 19" alloys  :tongue:

Have you looked at an Octavia vRS? The estate - especially in blue - is a bit of a sleeper. I like 'em.

The GTD is like a blow up doll. The GTI is like a proper woman. Sure the doll might last longer, and the woman might have higher running costs, but which would you rather have?

Agree, do like the mk6 in Tornado Red :tongue:

Having had a Deep pearl black Scirocco this is a hell of a lot easier to keep clean!
It only looks cleaner because it does not show the dirt up,it is still dirty :grin:

Yes Simon but with the black even after a full days cleaning, polishing etc, after 2 minutes you can see sh1te on it.  The red looks clean even when it's dirty but when it's clean, it looks showroom clean.....

the very reason I opted for red, and saving the cost of metallic!

Never had a black car before and always wanted one, guess its going to look scruffy most of the time then :grin:
Carbon is very nice, nearly ordered that first.

Black is one of the best looking colours when its clean - but its the hardest to keep.
Within a couple of minutes of polishing it, the dust starts settling, and it starts looking dirty again.
I had 3 black cars in a row - and unless I was buying one from a showroom that I couldn't choose the colour of - I'd never have black again!

My last one was Steel Grey - that was fairly simple to keep clean looking.  The best colour is silver as it looks clean all the time... so I think I may go silver this time!!

My Silver MK2a Punto would testify to this... Used to be able to hoover the interior and leave the bodywork all winter!  :laugh:
