    We buy any car

    Was offered £14,500 for my Jan 13 reg Mk 7 GTI PP three door last July from VW which I thought was a reasonable offer, tried a basic advert on auto trader at £15,200 and accepted £15000 from Prestige cars. Northumberland on the same day I picked up my new R, they transferred the money to my bank and even dropped me off over 30 miles out of their way to collect my R. It was advertised at £16995 for many weeks after.

    dealership messed up on service!!

    Disgusting service! Which dealership was it? So I can avoid. Needs properly cleaning and oil and filter changed at least, would,nt have thought there would be any serious contamination unless driving conditions were very dusty. But definitely have strong words with the manager.

    VAG Alternatives?

    Totally happy with my Golf R, as for my next car if VW stick with the 5 door only policy it will be my last. Also intrigued by the A35 I know it's only five door but like the look and performance of it. Who knows?
  11. Not so much side windows but definitely windscreen, same on my previous Golf Mk7 GTI use to think there was a problem but seems common to these motors.

    Seat covering

    Seat covering slightly slack (rippled) on side of drivers seat is this fairly normal is anybody else's the same? 5 month old 7.5R Showed main dealer but they did,nt inspire me with confidence that they could sort it, and would,nt trust them either.
