Vw Scirocco — Performance - it's near enough a mk1 golf gti! Build quality - it's a german car, pretty much bulletproof, although it has needed repairs, it is a 20 year old car, but to be fair the car is still solid! Apperence - as with all cars each to their own, when it comes to styling, but i have noticed this one grows on you once you've driven it. Running costs - it use's average fuel for a 1.8 engine, maintainence cost's are low, uprated parts are availible at a relitivly cheap cost too. Fun factor - is this car fun to drive? i've killed it once and missed it so much it had to have a new engine, what do you think!!!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: as good as a golf gti, but in a coupe form

Cons: rear spoiler can be a pain while reversing, and the car doesn't look quite right without it..

Vw Scirocco Scala — Performance - This car is quick enough as standard, but after a few light mods it can be very quick off the mark. Handling as standard is fun, but ideally needs lowering on stiffer springs and a lower strut brace added to make the 'grin factor' a bit bigger! Brakes are ok as standard, but again fitted with Corrado G60 brakes as mine is, it stops very well. Build Quality is fantastic, although the fit on the glove box is a bit out on some cars. Appearance - this is subjective, but I love the styling personally. Golf reliability with better looks. Costs - Very easy / cheap to maintain. It doesnt cost the earth to modify the car to a good standard either. Mine has cost £4500 including the cost of the car, maintenance and mods. Fun Factor - Well, around the nurburgring I had a good laugh. It was quick, responsive and handled the track well. If its Ferrari performance you want - look elsewhere, but if you want a cheap, good looking hatch/coupe that will put a smile on your face - here it is.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Build, reliability, looks, handling. Quick enough for an 80's hatch

Cons: Brakes. Heavy Clutch. Standard dampers are weak. Upgrade them.

This Is The Greatest Car To Drive - - It Corners On Rails!! — It is a compact sized car which gets super better gas mileage than my Jeep, but still looks nice and drives well. It is comfortable to ride in, but the dogs wouldn't fit in the backseat.

Pros: It's fun and dressy all in one.  It is the smoothest handling car I have ever had the opportunity to drive

Cons: I do not own one!

I Love Roccos — I have had a few Mk1 & Mk2 roccos. Very comfy to drive, I would def have another. They dont drink lots fuel and are pretty reliable cars.

Pros: Everything

Cons: Hard to steer for some

Vw Sciroco Gtii By Tony2259

The mark II Scirocco is possibly the most under rated of all VWs. Picked up for less than the price of a night on the p1ss, the reliable old Rocco will, if looked after, run forever. This is certainl... Read More
