Giving serious thought about going about one in a month or two.

The only thing that puts me off about them is that they are assembled in Mexico. I know that the new Beetle has been built there since 98 but of all the VAG factories in the world I think that they have more manufacturing defects per unit.

What engine are you going for? Take an Octavia for a spin while you are at it for comparison. You may be well surprised

I was thinking about the 1.9TDI.
I had driven the 1.9TDI octavia a about 3 years ago. i haven't driven the new one yet?
I have the Octavia in mind as well, i was just wondering if any one had taken one for a spin yet.

New one in fairness is a light years ahead of the old one. I bought a 1.9TDI Octavia last year.

the new one is a nice car just haven't got round to giving it a test drive yet.
Did those wheels come as standard on yours?

They are 17" Skoda Pegasus. 1500 euro factory or dealer retrofit option.
I bought them through a dealer in the UK for a lot less. Car had 15" alloys which the dealer allowed me 800 euro on and fitted steels instead when I took delivery.

Are you buying straight or trading?

I will be trading in. All depends what car My Golf is due the NCT. If that passes with no problems i may hold on to it and trade in her Car for it.

will have to wait and see how the NCT goes.
