Just climbed in the back to look at something and sitting behind the driver's seat with it in my position I'm astounded by the amount of room I had. My E46 is cramped in comparison yet it appears a bigger car. The 'little' golf is by no means little, it's an optical illusion. I thought going from a saloon to sports hatchback would mean comprises but far from it. The tiny golf is a god dam TARDIS. It also has a wider footwell than the BMW so a more comfortable drive over distances. I'm sure I'll find something else soon that'll surprise me again.

Not a fan then no. They were on the car when I bought it. The colour works with black and they are very easy to clean. They are not what I would have chosen myself but they will be fine till I get something nicer. I did want Monza shadows but this had better history and leather has no wear.

That would have been my first job getting them off

Brand new with new tyres so good for a while. As stated before about prioritizing, I'll get the clutch done before I consider looking for wheels. What bugs me most about the wheels is although the site they're from stated GTi, when you Google them they are mostly marketed at transporter wheels. They have been growing on me though.
