1990 Volkswagen Golf 4 Dr Gl Hatchback — I like this car a lot I found it reliable and easy to drive. I liked the fact that the head lights were round ... gave it character (lol) It is very spacious inside but then I'm not tall so it's just my opinion.The interior was basic and easy to keep clean. It did not cost much to run and was quite fun to drive. I would recommend this car to a friend , it would also make a good first car.

Pros: Fun , easy to drive , cost efficient , comfortable to drive.

Cons: Lack of power steering.

Golf Syncro — Bought this car of a mate, it was the 1.8 4x4 Syncro model so it was a very rare model, handling was fantastic (stuck to you like a fat lass at a nightclub!) and the performance wasn't bad. Only problem was when I had to replace the exhaust it was a special one and VW had to order one from Germany at £600!!!!

Pros: VW build quality

Cons: Rare model

The Golf Cart — Not very much to say about this motor, i had the 1.8 driver with the full gti big bumper kit in dark metallic blue. drove ok but the dash is horrible and the gearbox seemed to be out of a chieftan tank. outside though its an ok looking motor and has plenty of potential for modification.

Pros: looks cool

Cons: drives like a bag of spanners.

Best Looking Golf Ever — I loved this car, it looks amazing, my particular car was in mint condition, new hood etc. the age of the car meant that some of the electrics were dodgy, the heater was temprementel! It didnt do winters or cold weather very well, and it seemed not to like fuel, everytime i tried to put some in, it would spit it right back out all over me, which was a nightmare! However, when the nice days came, you forget all of that, and it transforms into an awesome car! Amazing handling, and everybody looks at it and admires it! I was forced to sell, but i really want one again, i loved it!

Pros: Looks, individuality, summer days

Cons: Electrics, winter, allergic to petrol

The Beast!!!! — This was a great car, it would start first time every time, I got 40mpg and it did 216000 miles before I got rid of it. Interior was timeless and built to last, I would have another one of these cars tomorow

Pros: Iconic looks

Cons: Paint fades with time

Vdub At Its Best — This car was bought for my wife because of its automatic transmission which is hard to find with low kms (140,000kms) when I bought this one.

Pros: Its a Volkswagen....nuff said.

Cons: 1994 and older Vdubs with an automatic trans is not recommended for highway, they were only 3 speeds and reved too high at 110kph, which also lead to poor acceleration loosing some of the 95hp threw the torch converter the standard was alot better.

Penfold You Da Man — this car is indestructible! Almost 18 years old, and only 76,000 miles. No rust either! Easily beats new cars off the lights, brilliantly responsive.

Pros: Better looking than most new cars, runs perfectly.

Cons: No boot door release in the cabin. Funny clutch (though what do you expect after 18 years?!)
