    My car

    I've ownes an R for the last four months and have been blown away by it. I ordered mine in Rising Blue, with 19" wheels and panoramic sun roof.

    The car is very easy to drive and very quick. I have the manual 6 speed and have yet to experience any wheel spin on take off. The three suspention settings, at the press of a button, aren't just a gimic, with the car sticking to the road like glue in "sport" mode. The ride is firm, even in "comfort" mode, but point the car where you want it to go and it'll take you there.

    The cabin is all quality and the standard heated seats are firm, doing a great job of holding you in place. Although the sumroof only tilts, it's large and lets in a lot of natural sunlight.

    I'm currently getting about 30mpg overall, wgich isn't bad, But my smile when ever I get into this car is huge.

    If I have one niggle, it's that there's no bluetooth as standard.

    Overall, a superb car and without spending silly money, I can't think of any other car I'd rather have.

    My car

    I've owned 18 cars over the years and this one is in a class of its own. It has 210bhp which is not a massive amount of power, however I've driven stuff which has 240-260 and they just don't compare. The difference with the Scirocco is that every horsepower is transmitted to the tarmac, whereas something like the VXR Astra is a nightmare to keep on the road. Its a very safe car to drive and very simple to operate. The car is at its best on bends, hills and long straights (try north west Scotland). Motorway journeys are ok, but the car likes to be driven around more interesting routes. In the real world you'll struggle to find anything as engaging for the same money. I was really surprised just how fast it can shift from 0-100 (sorry 70) It returns 35mpg overall and 41 on motorway trips. I've had it 2 years and I'd have another one, no question, since nothing better has appeared since.

    My car

    I have owned this car, in indium grey, for a month and love it. it is one of those cars that every time you walk away you have to look back at it.

    It is great to drive, i was concerned that 140 bhp was not going to be enough but its just right, its got plenty of torque and sticks to the road like glue. The cabin is a lovely place to be and very comfortable.

    The only fault i have had is that there was a squeak from the boot area (which i have heard is quite common) but this was sorted under warranty.

    My car

    This car is pure class. If you're reading this review on the edge of temptation of ordering/buying one...then jump now. I traded-up from a Mini Cooper, which was nice, but this is in a different league. We have some nice cars in my family yet my white Roc always gets the attention. Pics don't do this motor justice for some reason, you have to see it in the flesh. Do not skmip, go for leather, winter pack and folding mirrors. Fast, fun, sleek, stylish, comfortable, refined and economic enough to get 40mpg on a good conservative run (you will never get 50+ mpg as indicated in another review!) although over the last 2k miles of mixed drivingI get 33mpg, which is fine for a car with such blistering pace. I went to buy a TT and am so glad I went for this car instead. You can fit four people, it's much cooler (albeit not quite the premium mark of the overpriced Audi that has the SAME engine) and it's arguably quicker. Well done VW, a great car that is a total joy to own and drive. And no I don't work for VW. Although I am happy to accept a job to test drive the next generation Scirocco... ;) !
