    “.erm… ‘interesting’ handling characteristics is considerably more ‘fun to drive’ than a gutless 1.6 meh-mobile that will fall apart”

    No one mentioned the 1.6 golf as an option till that comment . 😉

    How do we collectively reckon the V6 Golfs, they look like they may fit the bill?

    Mk3 VR6 (okay technically not a V6) I had one, it was INCREDIBLY thirsty, low 20’s which would be forgivable if it was fast, but whilst 176bhp was a lot for the mid 90s it wasn’t really any faster than the 16v GTI, which handled better. They cost a fortune to run in other ways too, any VR6 specific part is multiples of the GTi / normal versions. Also, the early ones rot, and rot and rot. There were loads of them around for £500 a couple of years ago, but all the rough ones are gone now I guess, I really liked mine, and it sounded amazing for a hatch, but no.

    Mk4 R32, which you won’t get for a grand, try 5 times that, I personally think they’re massively over-valued, they’re okay, but they’re not amazing some people want £10k for a 10-15 year old Golf, they’re not Rallye / Limited rare, or nearly as cool and the MK5 Gti is cheaper and much better.
