    Thank you. No ABS for ours (or any NZ model AFAIK). Weve owned the car from new and gave it to our daughter for her 21st, about 8 years ago. Its been generally very reliable for a 20-plus year old...

    Just to rub salt in the wound (sorry) it IS an option for us Kiwis on the other side of the Tasman. Would love to hear an explanation of that sales logic!

    For anyone interested, there are a few Golf R cars available for sale right now in NZ. My local Christchurch dealer has this one for sale:

    The reason I'm curious about this is to understand just how low I had run the car. Was it running on fumes or maybe it still had 5L in it? There must be a definitive answer and I'm guessing that...

    Finally, 2 months after I took delivery of my 103kW TSI Highline, it was time for some fuel. The car has had a very quiet start to its life, covering just 614KMs in those 2 months, all of which were...

    Yes, I was running a 2013 Polo 6r GTI here until I traded it recently for my new Golf and had the "98" challenge, as this was the VW recommended minimum for that car.

    320 Kbps CBR MP3. In my opinion, that's more than adequate for use in a car, given that you are hardly in an audiophile environment.

    Incidentally, I do use FLAC when listening to my home stereo.

    Well, that would be interesting in NZ. 98 is only available from selected BP outlets. 91 is standard here with 95 if you need premium. So, 9 out of 10 service stations would not stock fuel of this...

    +1. The original badge had history and tradition. The new badge is anonymous and resembles something off a Holden or even worse, like Great Wall.

    Slightly off topic, but NZ also gets Skoda models well ahead of Aus. The Octavia VRS has been here for several months (and very nice it is too, with goodies like the Discover Media Pro as standard).

    I'm surprised they sold you a demo with that number of KMs on the clock. I thought that Highlines were in short supply and as a consequence, demos had to be kept for 3 months minimum?

    Agreed. Bluetooth A2DP streaming audio quality is excellent and to my ageing ears at least, indistinguishable from CD or MP3 inputs.
