Aye, I saw that too. My only niggle is I’m sure in one of the vids when they walked around it semi camo at the Ring they pointed at PS4S boots.

Until I remember which one, consider me wrong  :smiley:

Well I've got my test drive setup for one of these.

And I'm going to rule out the mk8 entirely now. It's either the 128 or a nearly new 135.

I feel sad and disappointed by vw 😔

Know how you feel Fred. I’ve nearly discounted the Mk8. This gti is the first I’m not really interested in. Possibly the CS though. The 128 and 135 are top of my list now.

I love the idea of the Yaris. The fact that it’s 3 door kills it for me unfortunately. Numbers are limited so I reckon it’ll hold value pretty well. Possibly the best hot hatch out there.

Too hardcore for daily use. Here’s an interesting review-

I noticed this earlier, maybe of interest to some?

(I've not viewed it!)

I’ll take a look at that after. Thanks! Still a great hot hatch even if it might be too harsh for daily use. Seems that it goes back to hot hatch roots rather than the stuff we get now.

Yes it is. It’s a very interesting car, the kind of car I would love to own- but never would because I’d think about how tiresome it would be.

I've seen a few A35s recently and thought they looked pretty good. Especially the red one I saw yesterday.
