I did like my 6 but as said today its not special, my golf feels better than the 6 in straight line speed and cornering, once i get a revo stage 1 map that should go to around 250-260 bhp and a h&r suspension setup it should be even better Smile

The 6 is not a great car, it's our second car that gets me to work and to the gym. if i get the opportunity i will always leave it and take the golf

however, i love mine because it was cheap to buy, cheap ish to run and cheap to fix whilst giving adequate performance and handling, they dont look to bad and they do sound nice

Yes I was going to get a clio sport as I've owned one in the past not bad motors but then I remembered I was stone bored in a couple of weeks and never wanted to give anyone a lift.

If I look out my window I will see a clio on average every 10 seconds.

When noobs are in my car there like uuugh what car is this again LOL

I loved my 6 back in 2004 and paid £6500 for it in 2002/03 Shock

Iíve got a 182 now. I really wouldnít say itís boring, itís faster and handles better than a 6 and is great fun to drive fast in.

Think the main reason I would have another 6 is that I hate driving my Clio slowly, the interior is horrible and the build quality is shocking. I wouldnít say a 6 is more fun to drive but I do think itís a better all-rounder.

There are other cars that would fit the bill but nothing comes close for the money IMO.

I loved virtually everything about mine; styling, transmission, the induction roar and the nice comfortable seats certacy of Ash & Jon Thumbs up Fuel costs were bareable and it was annoying when the HG bill came to £1,100+ but still made me smile for a month till the badger wrote it off! Sad

Hardly a leap up from the 6 more like a baby step dont see the point unless you just want something more modern.

I plan to buy Porsche when I'm finished with the PUG.

Perhaps not a huge step up in performance (although i bet its a fair bit faster) but Itís a big step up in everything else (equipment, build quality, nicer looks, nicer interior etc etc)

Plus as luke said it will be very easy to get more power out of.

Why would you bother with a Porsche when you could high-boost your 6?

The game has moved on big time in hot hatches but they still lack the purity of steering feel in the likes of the 205/106/306 and the go kart feeling. Sometimes it's good to go back to lightweight, fine handling cars like the 6. That's why everytime I think of flogging the 106, I drive it, and convince myself to keep it purely on how much fun it is to hustle down a country lane.

I'd say its quite a bit faster than my old 6, better on fuel, interior is a lot nicer, more comfortable, no rattles. Im not saying the 6 is a bad car i just much prefer the golf.

Although to be honest you already answered the question. There is no way I would choose a pug over a Porsche if I had the money. Although it does depend on the Porsche.

As already said, you'd be bloody hard pushed (if at all possible) to find something as fun as the 6 for the price ie sub £1000 for a half decent one, which makes it a very affordable toy really.

Equipment? I like driving not pressing buttons, build quality? They still fall apart and have many faults but you will probably never realize all this until you own one yourself, nicer looks? Thumbs down, interior? Ok maybe its more modern but the seats weigh as much as my sofas.

Modern GTI's or similar are getting more power only because they are getting heavier and all the silly gadgets you get are just more things to go wrong.

MK5 Golf looks better than the 6 IMO, seats arent very heavy, not leather or anything special, Gadget wise it has working a/c/climate control, Engines are solid and mine has been faultless, dont hear of many faults either except things like the door locking mechanism which goes back to the mk4 platform vag's, but it doesnt have many silly gadgets to be honest

Yes you're right. Regardless of cost the MK5 Golf GTI is a worse car in every way than a £700 GTI 6.

I must say though a clean phase 3 is a must if you dont want the girls to laugh, all those extra little bits make a huge difference.

No rattles no squeaks just a firm hand on my thigh is all I get when I'm bwwarping Whistle.

Most of you guys must of bought buckets.

As said before, the induction noise on a standard air-box setup is spot-on, as is the feeling you get when nailing it through the gears from 3rd onwards.
I can leave it in the pub car park over-night and not worry too much about some c*nt putting a window through or keying it.
They are relatively simple to work on (my g/f's mk4 polo is a nightmare in comparison!)
They also look fantastic still compared to today's dull germanic boxes.

The day I stop turning around to admire it whenever she's parked up will be the day I decide to sell*






*This may change if the f*cking clutch cable decides to snap on me again whilst driving through the peak district at 10pm.
