Stay Away From '99 Vw Golfs — Out of the five vehicles I've owned in my lifetime this was the worst. A list of things that broke on this vehicle: 1) fuel pump seal 2) fuel line ruptured 3) plastic window clips inside the driver/passenger doors. 4) Thin rubber trim on the door handles wore off after a year.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The interior dashboard lights are very cool in this car.

Cons: Just about everything else.

Solid 1st Car — Well for your 1st car you cant really complian..but hind =sght is a strange thing. the mk 4 is the worst golf ever made..it was to heavy and under steered badly. the engine was noisey when stationary and to took a good 10 minutes to reall warm up. netherless this car was bomb proof and you could give it some stick. all together you can't moarn that much it was my 1st car abd i'll never forget it

Pros: will run and run and run

Cons: handles like a tugg boat

My First Car... — The MY first car. My actual first car belonged to my older brother first but this one was MINE and ALL MINE. Got it quite stock. Loved it that way. Fun to drive. Great looking car. Soon i decided to start playing around with it... Dropped it with Bilstein Pro Kit Lowering Springs and added Tokico Blue shocks to that. Decided to buy some new shoes. 17-inch ROH Adrenalin mags added a nice look. Threw on a Magnoflow Catback exhaust and the beast was born... I loved driving it around... Loved listening to it... Loved looking at it... A couple of little changes here and there (Eurostyle 'Angel-Eye' look headlights, GTI smoked taillights, tinted windows, GTI drivers seat, Sub/Amp...) This was the first car that i made MINE...

Pros: Everything...

Cons: Nothing...

Hell Yeah! — Very nice car by any means. Only some small engineering mistakes and lack of air conditioning. Engine is very nice (1.8t) and produces quite a bit of power for this sized car. It's also cheap to tune by programming and so on. Easy to achieve 200hp but after that it will turn expensive, cause you need to change turbo and stuff.

Pros: Performance, looks, tuning potential, easy to find parts, value

Cons: Price, size, trunk, hi-fi potential

Golf Gt Tdi 180bhp, Top Spec — My Golf GT TDI is probably one of the best cars i have owned so far, it is very reliable and has the performance to match, with over 180 BHP!!. With the fuel prices continually rising too i am more than happy with the 50+ miles to the gallon it returns, so this makes it very practical and exceptional fun to drive

Pros: Great looks, amazing performance, and reliable

Cons: Can be a little challenging in the wet

Rattling Fun! — The VW Golf GTi is a overall good car with a few little weaknesses. The power of the turbocarged 1,8 litre engine is very nice, and the recaro leather storts seats come in handy, because the handling is good enough to throw you about a bit. The thing i dislike the most is build quality. Especially the interior is starting to make alot of rattling sounds. But apart from that. Fun car! =)

Pros: Turbo engine, recaro leather sports seats, good tight handling, and, easily tuned. =)

Cons: Not the best build quality on the interior. Cramped engine compartment.

Solid Little Devil! — A nice little car, that's is very nervous. It will give you a jump when you need it. Seems to be a dormant little thing but surprises you on how it handles. Never had a car that can handle winter driving like this one, without four wheel drive. i can't wait to buy my GTI!!!

Pros: Surprisingly nervous

Cons: Upgrades are expensive!

Great Solid Car, Golf Has Always Been A Good Car & Its Lived Up To Its Name. — Swaped this car for my BMW. Its not as fast as the BMW but for a 1.8 20v im very suprised with the performance. Its 125bhp, like new to drive, very solid car & very clean inside & out. Ideal for the mrs to drive, has all the safty fetures that the top spec cars have, really impressed with the car overall, i think i came out with the better deal. Got lots of extras coming to tart the car up, set of 18" alloys, rear smoked lexus lights, R32 side skirts, front headlight eyebrows & a mash debadged grill, gonna get a nice twin exhaust nothing boy-racerish though.

Pros: Good handling, plenty of power, good breaks,  lovely interior, lovely to drive.

Cons: Expensive insurance but had it cheep on-line, expensive tax.
