      What you're hearing is a coolant pump, there is no after-run oil circulation function.

      The handbrake could be photo-shopped in, and actually the European car gives you a choice of 3 interiors - leather, plaid with Alcantara bolsters, and "plain" plaid/cloth all around. In fact, that...

      In the past, there used to be an indication in the instrument display before the car was prepped - "Tra" - or something like that. Probably not the case here, or else someone would've noticed but I...

      I certainly won't challenge most of your observations since they're subjective, and you're certainly entitled to your opinions - just as I, for example, like the Austins, including the black...

      You are correct, "modbargains" is not; the AWP variant of the 1.8T is the 180hp, transversely-mounted engine, found in the 02 and up GTI, as well as most 180hp TT versions, as well. GTIs with...

      Owned white and silver - it's silver. Though as the detailer pointed out, it is hard to see the problems that are present on the car (which is why you choose silver!) But if it doesn't bother you...

      It's probably just you!

      The wheel isn't larger, by the way, it's just that the rim itself has been changed from a round shape to a more elongated one, which makes it not fall to hand quite as...

      Good question - I don't know what happened to it; I have seen the photos with that badge as well. Early production R? Nicked by some other test driver? I swear I didn't take it.

      As for the...

      The thing is, if VW stays on the 4 year cycle it used last time for the Golf 6 (late 08 to late 12) then the Golf 8 is only about 2.5 yrs away - from a European debut, anyway; that of course will...

      It's funny, I gather from pretty much everyone that once you get past the first few years of childhood, there's markedly less paraphernalia you need to tote around - so by the time she's about 5-6 I...

      Thanks - that's good to hear. But as for the space inside, it does have more cargo room - 380l for the Golf 7, 420 for the X1, more if you take advantage of those adjustable rear seats on the X1. ...

      Good review; it is certainly in line with what I've thought and written about the two cars on these forums previously. The A3 is a really nice car - the GTI, one that you just want to drive all the...

      This is the truth, and my eyes aren't all that bad...they were even better in 01 when I got my first Xenon-equipped car, the TT, and I haven't had a car without since (except 2 old VWs acquired for...

      Not really; if traction conditions are basically identical from side to side - which you'd more or less expect if it's raining - then shuffling the torque from side to side isn't going to make much...
