    My car

    We waited and waited for this miracle car and when it arrived (1st Sept), I was disappointed that I didn’t get to drive it home off the forecourt. Instead, I drove behind in our old 206cc fixated by the cherry brake lights.

    I nearly didn’t make the 6 month wait, and did look at the new BMW 3 CC. Even worse was the blank look on my colleagues’ faces when I said I was waiting on an EOS and spent several hours a week trying to seek one that was already built to my over-kill spec so as to cut the wait time.

    Pros- a great drive both motorway and town, glad we went for the Tiptronic, and it makes driving through London a blessing. I haven’t used the paddle shift but my partner swears they are great, I find them a little tricky to us whilst steering.

    Cons- the mirrors don’t seem to behave the way they should re. auto-dipping when reversing. It is also very heavy, but that helps it deal with Islington humps easily. Additionally, breaking is also a more like an art than a science and combined with the weight at times you have to almost force your foot heavily on it to stop in time.

    My overall problem is that I want to drive it all the time but I have to share it and only get to use it at weekends, and even now whilst thinking of exchanging the 206cc for another tin-top, I know there’s only 1 for me and two EOSs would be greedy, but if I could it’d have to be the V6 as the T-FSI Sport needs work to build up speed, all though when it reaches its limit it drives smoothly.

    My car

    We bought this car of our dreams only for it to turn to our nightmares.

    When we checked in the boot about a week after delivery we found a mini indoor pool. The dealership assured us it was the hose maybe leaked in ( only we hadn't used one!).

    We were soon to find out it was the rain - there was lots to come, in the foot wells, in the boot, on the seats. New seals, still more rain.

    Several long winded calls to VW, all in vain - we finally gave in and part exchanged it for a gti.

    EOS 5 stars... how?

    My car

    I could not decide what to buy and finally chose an Eos, mainly due to the metal roof and German build quality.

    I have to say it is even better than I imagined! The little things are done so well, and its build quality makes my previous car (a Mercedes that cost more than double the VW) look shabby.

    So far I am very pleased. I haven't noticed the noise from the engine and am pleased with the diesel (my first) - it makes for a very relaxing and swift, rather than fast, drive.

    I'm glad I did not buy the TT I was also considering! In my opinion, it's a great car.
