Just read your post.If you'd like to demonstrate how I have then I will happily apologise as this was not my intent. There is always a resistance to change from older Mk owners, we had the same thing with the Mk3. Difference is they say that they prefer their Mk over another, not that people should go buy something else. I've said my piece and I hope this will be an end to this particular discussion, just please remember that nobody likes the car they chose to be rubbished by somebody else and told such and such is a much better choice - as is clear from the number of posts from other members on the subject.
As to where was I then - probably working, as this is a volunteer position, as well as letting things play out before I stepped in.
Your post almost did what all posts like yours do, that is to raise a frenzy of attacks or ganging up, always happens, very surprised as a super moderator you chose that route. And guess it's your opinion of "rubbished" I do not rubbish my own car, I wouldn't have bought it if I thought that. I have already said what I like and dislike so no point doing it again. This one is still outside after 2.5 years so that says a lot for it, I don't normally keep them that long and could have sold it for more than I paid for it last xmas. I reiterate I am often the only one speaking out against the attacks this car has suffered on this site since the day it was released and 99% of the time no comments like yours were forthcoming. It was the same when I had my MK3, I didn't bother coming on, but read a none stop stream of abuse towards the MK3 then by usually the same people who almost never got scorched by people like yourself. Maybe pick and choose who?
This has drifted well off topic and expected ALB to step, quite rightly. Sorry Alb.
