    Well it all started for me when i go married 2.5 years ago . My wife decided that she didnt like the sound of a N/A car with a 2 1/4 inch exhaust revving at 8000rpm. So we decided to look at other cars . She loved he looks of the polo and i loved the performance. And once we went for a test drive we were in love. Then for the 10 months i was extensively searching all things Polo and VW and am now obsessed. Everything from the feel of the door when you shut to the quality of the interior and i could keep going on and on and on.

    Wot he said.

    This is actually my first VW and it makes me wonder ... how could I go fifty-mumble years before discovering just what a quality item a VW is?

    It'll probably be my last VW too ... ain't never gonna sell my Baby

    Although ... should I become unhealthily rich ... I might buy another one ... like an ... R32 for instance.

    For me, it was by chance that I stepped into a VW. I was out on the market for a first car, and my choices back then were Jap cars - Corollas, Silvias, Pulsars etc. I didn't even look into European makes. It was not until my cousin-in-law presented me with an opportunity to own a Mk3 Golf that I become a VW and Euro convert. I won't be looking back.

    Ever since I was young, I wanted a beetle ( i think the Herbie movies had something to do with it) My dad, who is a mechanic hated VWs. He was always telling me that they were no good, lol. When i turned 14 i found a 57 Beetle in need of some tlc, fiddled around with that for a few years and then got caught up in Escorts and Capris. Always Loved Vw's.
    Especialy older ones. they have allot of Character

    i used to be into jap cars. i was looking at an importers website and they had a cool looking hatch on there, it was a mk2. so i did a bit of reading around on the net and saw heaps of cars that i liked. looked around for a while and then got my mk2. i like the look, the handling and the fact that theres not many of them on the roads.

    Just got married last year - needed another car and wanted something with a bit of zip in it before settling down with a family car etc etc... Like many others were looking at mazda3 mps, ford focus xr5, accord euro and even sub liberty gt.

    VW dealer is just round the corner from me, and went to check out the gti (mind you all the oz awards that it won helped sway the decision abit), drove it and loved it!

    Will not be looking at any other jap cars after this one!

    I got into dubs by chance too. Was lookin for a new ride and with my budget, didn't think euro stuff was in reach. I've had a soft spot for practically anything European for ages so it was a bit disheartening.

    I came mere centimetres to buying a pulsar SSS but it sold before I could get my mits on my wallet. Then I spotted the ad for my car. It was a bit much but I went and looked anyway. 1 drive and I was hooked

    The solid sound of the doors shutting is pretty good too hehehe.

    I love the character of the car as well. Its a bit quirky, its very different, its not pretenious like BMW's and Mercs are and giving the dub a fang makes me grin like a idiot
