please don't buy the golf, while its tech for connectivity looks great in the brochure, its unreliable and frankly hopeless. sat nav is out of date, old style entry for addresses and the sd card to update is corrupted. the dsg while favoured by many simply has unpredictive reliability, and the dammed thing keeps going up down up down making that stupid golf noise, oh I HATE them so much. Great dark headlining on some models, but without the lights on you simply CAN NOT SEE THE INSTRUMENTS!! auto hold is poor, as too the electric handbrake (new volvos system IS the best sadly not on the V40) the 1400 petrol tsi often blows up, maybe driver error but probably just rubbish like the rest of the car. press the top corner of the wing, near the screen, its like A TIN CAN you can move it 15 mm inwards with light pressure. Dealers will begrudgingly give you an UP! as a loaner when service is due, or on one of your warranty visits.... some areas of its build haven't progressed since 1990. And, the auto braking is horrendous, it stops you dead if a car has pulled out of a junction, 4 miles away. Seriously overrated
