Volkswagen Scirocco R Review
Volkswagen Scirocco R Review
Volkswagen Scirocco R Review


The Volkswagen Scirocco R may have already been on sale in Europe for four years, but its arrival in Australia earlier this year added a fresh choice for those looking for a compact sporty VW that wasn’t a Golf GTI or Golf R.

To make that choice a little easier, Volkswagen Australia dropped the three-door Golf R from the range to accommodate the three-door Scirocco.

The company has also rather cunningly imported just one variant of the Scirocco, where there are 26 different versions of the Golf on which it is based.

While that strategy rules out the Scirocco for buyers who can’t stretch beyond $50,000 once on-road charges are added, the two redeeming benefits are that it lifts the perceived value of the car and is much better at emphasising its sporty credentials.

The designers have done a great job of creating that a coupe-style look despite the Scirocco essentially sharing the same platform and majority of components with the Golf that is more of a family hatchback for the masses.

That the Scriocco was the first Volkswagen to feature the current horizontal-grille family look tells you that this isn’t that new a car, having only arrived in Australia earlier this year.

So it still exudes a contemporary design and turns heads wherever it goes. As a hot hatch, it does the job of attracting attention despite not being as aggressive or in-your-face as its similarly priced direct rival, the RenaultSport Megane 250.

Sit inside a Scirocco R and the Golf heritage is instantly noticeable. From the instrument layout to the steering wheel and the majority of the cabin, it’s got that same overly black Volkswagen interior look. The only obvious difference is the triangular door and console grips.

The higher than normal (for a Volkswagen) list of standard equipment on the Scirocco, which starts at $47,490, includes dual-zone climate control, cruise control, parking sensors (rear), automatic wipers, trip computer, Bluetooth telephone connectivity with audio streaming and heated sports seats.

Although it comes standard with a 6.5-inch colour display, you’ll still have to fork out an extra $2500 for satellite navigation (higher resolution screen and a 30GB hard drive) and $1100 for the 300W Dynaudio premium audio system. Our test car’s infotainment system, which was equipped with the optional RNS510 satellite navigation system, was rather slow to react to our touch and the graphical display for the navigation is reminiscent of systems from five years ago.

Behind the wheel the rear visibility is atrocious and the lack of a reversing camera compounds matters. Although we’re always of the view that one should be able to reverse and park a car without driver aids, the size of the rear windows and the overall cabin shape makes the job unnecessarily difficult.

The side-hugging R-badged sports seats are comfortable without being soft. It may be a challenge to find them overly comfortable for the bigger folks but they would more than satisfy the average adult. We also found the rear seats to be sufficient for two average-sized adults (even if headroom is a little on the low side).

What may prove uncomfortable for an adult of any size, however, is the ride.

The sporty suspension set-up, big (19-inch) wheels and low-profile tyres combine to provide a hard ride, even if you switch the adaptive dampers to Comfort mode.

This is a good thing if you’re still young (or young at heart with a good chiropractor) and tend to enjoy getting from A to B enthusiastically, but it can be a little daunting if you frequent rough metropolitan roads on a regular basis.

The Scirocco R uses the same 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine as the Audi S3 and Golf R, coupled to either a six-speed manual or a super-quick six-speed dual-clutch transmission (DSG). With 188kW of power (detuned from 199kW for Australia’s hot climate) and 330Nm of torque, it’s certainly got the figures to be a credible hot hatch.

But unlike the all-wheel drive Golf R, the Scirocco R is driven via the front wheels, which makes it lighter but also a tad temperamental. The Scirocco uses the same Extended Electronic Differential Lock (XDL) system we first saw in the current-generation Volkswagen Golf GTI.

It exists to limit torque steer and provide a cleaner out-of-corner acceleration experience, which it does to a reasonable degree. Nonetheless, it can still get a little rough at speed and doesn’t provide the same levels of steering directness as found in the Megane RS250 (and which has a proper mechanical limited-slip differential).

Compared to the Renault, it feels moderately faster in a straight line (0-100km/h in 6 seconds for the DSG or 6.2 for the manual as oppose to 6.1 for the manual-only Megane RS250) but fails to provoke the same levels of adrenaline when driven close to its limits.

In fact, the Golf R’s all-wheel-drive system helps it accelerate to 100km/h in a three-tenths of a second quicker than the Scirocco R despite its weight disadvantage but there’s little difference between the two when you get them going.

The Scirocco is very technical (German) in how it navigates around tight corners at speed. It’s certainly quick even if it doesn’t provide the same level of engagement as the Megane RS.

It doesn’t quite have the X factor appeal of its French rival, either, though Volkswagen’s sportiest compact car is still one of the best hot-hatches around for $50,000.

    Considering how often the bonnet will be open on this thing for 50k you would think VeeDud could throw a couple of gas struts on it.  Rather than an old coat hanger.

    • SLORE

      You, sir, are a tool. And what do you drive??

      • Legnab

        OH he has a VK crummer  , but he gets to drive the wifes skoda octavia RS , which is riddled with faults and could explode at any minute .

      • Captain Nemo

         No need for insults buddy. I drive an Octvia RS wagon & I,am aware of whom it’s Daddy was.  And you good sir what automotive icon do you drive?

      • Smart US

         no need for harsh word among gentlemen

    • Legnab

      AGREED even the GTI gets gas struts , in 12 months i have open mine twice , just to give it a clean after a long haul ,with it being ultra reliable no need to open it .

      Looks pretty good on the move , had my days with a two door prelude , four doors for me .

    • Darryl

      The struts would leak and be of no use fairly quickly

      • John of Perth

         No – my V6 Bora’s done 200,000 plus and the lovely chrome anodised struts still perfect.  I have to say every time I see one I want one, but then the head says get the Golf R.  Can’t part with the Bora though for some odd reason.  There is still an element of quality the MkV’s and VI’s seem to lack against the Mk IVs.

    • Igomi Watabi

      yawn

    • Robin_Graves

      They should have a permanent tow hook on the front bumper as well.  At least being FWD it doesn’t need a flat-top.  How can VeeDud think that braking a spinning front wheel is going to mask torque steer?  At least Ford revoknuckle uses geometry to limit it and the Renault has a proper LSD.

      • Legnab

        It does .

      • Luke Brinsmead

        There’s a YouTube video of a Scirocco R beating an Evo, WRX, Golf R and a Type R around a track in Japan. So I think it works ok.

        • Robin_Graves

          Youtube says its so, must be true hey? Keyboard enthusiast.

          • horsie

            Robin. since when did you change from being a VW fanboy to using the work VeeDud ?

          • Luke Brinsmead

            Ah, it’s actual footage of a race…

          • Pete Petrass

             I have seen that race, awesome.   Robin Graves is obviously a Fraud fan and the focus was not even good enough to be in the race.

          • Robin_Graves

            If you two had half a clue you’d be dangerous.  Has other variables such as driver skill ever entered your mind?  Just because some video on youtube shows the Scirocco winning, is that the be-all and end-all of the argument?  The revo knuckle and quaife torsen LSD in the Focus is miles ahead of the ESC based system in the Scirocco, end of story.

          • Legnab

            Grave robber mine is pulling more torks than the rocco and it works  very well , the best is the megane far better than the ford , you stick to comments on dino RWD falcoons , this FWD gear is  a bit to modern for you .

    • Legnab

      Wonderfull when you realise your octavia RS uses the same coat hanger strut , aint life strange , maybe because its so reliable you had not noticed this .

      • Captain Nemo®™

         Bungle i know it (the Octavia) doesn’t have gas struts. But i didn’t pay $50k for it.

        • Legnab

          Try $45k pretty close, or did you buy second hand from rubbery carsales , hence no warranty to fix the multitude of exploding problems your having , you should have gone to spec savers .

    • Luke Brinsmead

      I think the Scirocco is made in Germany, therefore better reliability than made in Mexico or South Africa.

      • Robin_Graves

        They glue the badge on, they wear the reliability results just like every other manufacturer.

        • Luke Brinsmead

          Correct, just like cars made in Thailand aren’t quite as reliable as cars made in Japan, right?

      • Pete Petrass

         The Scirocco is actually made in Portugal.   btw do you know what the Ford acronym stands for?
        Found On Rubbish Dump
        Full Of Rust Dust
        F$%ked On Race Day

        • Robin_Graves

          Haw haw haw you are a comedian.  So where does being made in Portugal leave the Scirocco on the VeeDud lemon factory ranking?

  • Realist

    I’ve owned a Passat. Beautiful car …………..BUT …………when it needed something done on it I needed to go to Westpac on bended knee for a second mortgage on the house. Now I stick with Japanese – bullet proof!

    • SLORE

      If you can’t afford to maintain a car then you shouldn’t be driving it then should you??? Or get a better paying job.

      You are obviously not a car enthusiast.

      • Robin_Graves

        There’s a big difference between scheduled maintenance and problems that happen outside of warranty.  VeeDud are ridiculously expensive on both counts.

        • Legnab

          No , never had any expensive services or warranty problems .

      • Smart US

         are we talking about Passat car enthusiast??? did you take ur morning pill???

        • Luke Brinsmead

          What happened to the Toyota Avalon TRD or the Accord Type R, exactly..either doesn’t exist or was a flop. The Passat R36 was a capable car and much more sporty than the TRD. So enthusiast material ok.

  • Jimg

     yes I hear you loud and clear , I too have switched to Jap from VeeDud

  • twincharger

    This is one ugly car.Did Skoda design this  rolf for Veedud.A VK crummer for me any day.

    • Legnab

      hahah nemo and gary floppy all in the back of the octavia RS with twinbanger .

  • Noddy of Toyland

    I love driving this on the video game Driver San Francisco. Great game I would recommend to all petrol heads.

  • Dominique Vøn Hütch

    You may as well get one in that green, it looks like every other golf in any other colour.

  • Martin

    I nearly died when the sales assistant gave us the options list for the scirocco. Bought a highly optioned 1 series instead for similar money.

    • Legnab

      YUK what were u thinking .

      • Martin

        What a dimwitted comment. What were you thinking?

        • Legnab

          How ugly the 1 series 4 door  is , bit too grandma , 3 and 5 now your talking  3 very desirable .

          • Sumpguard

             Whilst I think GelBan is an absolute clown he is right about the 1 series.  It’s aweful!!

          • Legnab

            Thanks sumpy , i do admire the optima , very well conceived design , just get the handling  dynamics right and a bit more grunt and a big winner .

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=737660467 Kit Ho

      125i with M Sport package?

      I’m a 1 series convert, after giving it a good look in person and a test drive it’s really a car that grows on you

    • Pete Petrass

       I seriously doubt you got a “highly” optioned 1 series for similar money.   I was looking at a 118i just before the Scirocco was released and changed my mind.   The 118i has an options list of 57 items at a cost of around $51,000 which effectively doubles the price of the car.   You claim highly optioned which would mean at least more than half the options list and puts the final price in a completely different ballpark.
      The Scirocco has 4 at a cost of around $8,000

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=737660467 Kit Ho

        You can get a 125i with M Sport package, satnav and sunroof for 59k, which is not THAT much compared more expensive to the Scirocco. And those options listed are the just notable more expensive ones.

        *that price is after negotiations, drive away, and potentially can go lower. We were asked by a dealer “would you be ready to put down a deposit for 59?” which in normal person speak is “ok, we’ll sell for 59″

  • Imo

    Quite a negative review there Alborz.
    Just don’t quite get it why you gave it 4 stars.

    • RSC200

      Because there is a car called Renault Megane RS 250.

  • RSC200

    There is one thing that annoys me about some reviewers (sorry  Alborz Fallah not a personal thing directed at you) why when a Hot-hatch is being reviewed you guys always mention how Harsh the Ride is?

    It’s a Hot-Hatch and if it is suppose to handle well it has to have a “Harsh” setup.

    • Legnab

      Correct , megane wins the shoot out with this baby , will be interesting when the ST arrives and the astra , let the hot hatch fight begin .

      • RSC200

        Astra has already been beaten (Eruopean Review) by the Megane RS265 so that’s one down and the ST to go.
        But go to say that Eco Boost Technology by Ford is Magnificent, and I do hate the Piranha Front of the Focus ST.

        Let’s not forget the Megane RS265 should be here by September, not that the Power figures of the RS250 are not already 265 lol.

    • http://www.caradvice.com.au/ Alborz Fallah

      I agree. However if you want a proper hot hatch that is pure, get the Megane RS. The Scirocco to me is meant to be a more comfortable hot hatch, one that isn’t nearly as hardcore as the Megane, so when the ride is just as firm but the interior doesn’t have the sporty edge like the Megane, it doesn’t make sense. You either go all the way and make it a proper hot-hatch racer (e.g. Megane) or you compromise and give something up for a daily driver (Golf R). Scirocco is right in the middle and that may work for some, but I think it gets the worst of both worlds if you’re after a daily.

      • Edward

        As a hot hatch driver i would have to agree.

  • dsuhiti

    Nice colour, but I prefer a Megane hot hatch.

  • Golfschwein

    It’s gotta be green. Looks better on the road than in pictures.

  • Dominique Vøn Hütch

    Look at the sixth photo in the gallery…fuel consuption 41.5L/100Kms!!!

    • Smart US

      it shows 29.1l/100 – still nice

  • mightyfour

    Why would you buy this car for comfort.
    Just like buying an Evo for its soft supple ride.

  • jr

    The 6th picture in the review is of a golf not a scirocco – leather seats and centre console are wrong.

    • SLORE

      You need to go to Specsavers

      • jr

        The picture has been removed since I made the comment. You need to learn to be less wrong.

  • Robj

    Alfa Giulietta better..simple as that.

    • Johnson

      So you are the bloke that bought it?

  • Pete Petrass

    The Megane may well be slightly faster on the twisties but I would be a lot more concerned about the infamous unreliability of frog cars than a VW.   I sold my WRX earlier this year and actually bought a Scirocco in Viper Green and it is just awesome.   I seriously doubt if any of the detractors above have even owned a VW let alone actually driven this car.
    As for Martin who nearly died when he saw the options list????   WTF???   There are only 3 options for this car (sunroof, audio and satnav), and more like 30 or more for ANY BMW.   On a beemer you can double the price of the car just in options.
    But hey haters are just that and will never be convinced whilst driving around in their crumbledoors.   More to the point I think jealousy is the key here.
    As for the ride when you buy a performance car you have to expect a firm ride.   I would not call it harsh, the Civic Type R is harsh, the Scirocco is firm.

    • John of Perth

       mate I’m jealous !

    • Robin_Graves

      “Frog cars” and VeeDud are just as bad as each other, in fact VeeDud are probably a little worse lately with major mechanical failures not just eletrical gremlins, so that comparison is a draw.  ”Frog car” parts are a little cheaper as well.

      • Legnab

        YES i know capt nemo has been telling us about all the failures on his octavia RS  what a disaster , why did he buy it .

      • Luke Brinsmead

        You know nothing Robin, how about looking at the facts on TUV or Auto Express reliability ratings before posting. You’re an embarrassment to this enthusiast website.

    • Hung Low

      Yes Pete petri dish, we are so envious of a balding aged men with a $50k Vduds. You must look so cool in a green coupe!

      • Pete Petrass

        I have been looking at some of your previous comments and you are just a chronic hater, of everything and everybody it seems.   I have seen nothing other than utterly negative with a superiority complex thrown in for good measure.   So what exactly do you drive?   Enlighten us as to what must be the most superior car on the planet, because you drive one, assuming you even have a licence!!!!!!!!!
        I bought the Scirocco because I love the car, I love the colour, I love how it looks, I love its uniqueness here in Australia and because I can afford to buy it.   I did not buy it because it could make me look cool nor do I claim it to be the best car in the world.
        Perhaps you need to take a chill pill and be happy for people who can afford to purchase cars that THEY like because I simply don’t care whether you like it or not.   So again tell us what you drive and why???

        • Golfschwein

          Pete, I hear you loud and clear. I’m here because I’m a card-carrying enthusiast of the brand, and of many other cars besides. Others are here because their sole passion is to take endless swipes at people and the cars they drive. Count the posts on this article alone from Robin Graves. You can press all you like, but they will NEVER tell you what they drive and they will NEVER lob on to an article and say, ‘hey I love this car’. It’s beyond them.

          It’s a shame, because the site’s creators are genuine enthusiasts who give us immediacy of news and a generosity with pictures. That’s what brings me here, despite the wreckers. 

          • Luke Brinsmead

            I agree, it’s called the tall poppy syndrome, it’s a sin and I think it’s more prevalent these days in Australia.

          • Captain Nemo®™

             So Luke just wondering is it only “tall poppy syndrome” when people bag Euro cars like VW?

            Is it still tall poppy syndrome when people bag Aussie cars like Falcon/Commodore/Aurion ? love to hear your thoughts on this.

          • Legnab

            Its a vanity thing from the 50/60′s when you bought a holden or a ford , the rest were crappy english cars , then came the jap/euro invasion , they just cant cope with superior machines offering an alternative to a fat old sedan which makes a perfect taxi/repmobile/govt car , no we want a different look , performance , economy , retained value and a fun drive .

          • JooberJCW

            Its tall poppy syndrome because people don’t like seeing others succeed, it goes hand with ‘giv’em a fare go/battler mentality, Australians love to see people on the same playing field. So for someone who can afford a 50k toy and enjoy it many people haven’t got that luxury and feel the need to take a swipe.

            bagging the falcon commodore aurion etc is just pure whining.

          • Luke Brinsmead

            When people bag Aussie cars they are being supercilious, when people bag premium/luxury non-domestic cars they are being myopic. I think there is the right car for everyone, from a hybrid Commodore to a diesel Falcon, wait…they don’t exist yet…come on Holden and Ford Australia, catch up with the rest of the developed world.

          • Legnab

            The grave robber cruises in a grandpa G6E turbonic , wonder whats it worth now .

          • Captain Nemo®™

            Had a good laugh at your comment Golfie. Your mate Bungle has made way more posts than Robin on this story.     All with his usual helping of “paw spelling” sorry mate but the word hypocrite springs to mind. 

          • Golfschwein

            I was counting the haters, Nemo. Bangel’s his own thing, and I don’t speak for him. I’ll give him this: he loves the brand and wears it on his sleeve. As for Robin, he’s written 11 out of the 104 comments so far on this story, better than 10%. That’s an enormous effort for anyone to put into something that they hate. You know, if I’m not terribly interested in something, such as the spare tyre deletion from the Toyota 86, I don’t write about it. Robin should be asking himself why he spends so much time on something he hates. It must be making him terribly sick by now. And, secretly (shhh!), he must be interested.

        • Hung Low

          “crumbledores, jealousy, I can afford to buy” you have in just one post regurgitated the same old rubbish that most of the Vag fanboys continue to drivel on here and I am the supposed chronic hater? I think it is your brand sharing ilk that have the superiority complex, because in reality I couldnt give a rats arse for the reasons you bought your car yet you seem to try to define your disillusioned status by querying what I drive?
          Like yourself, your new brown nose buddy above, shares the common traits of hypocrisy that runs rife amongst Vw lovers on this site.

        • Legnab

          Congrats pete enjoy your new machine , work hard play hard .

          • Barry

            Umm Legnoddy.You talk of interior plastics,have a look inside the scirocco.Total overuse of interior plastics,for a prestige european model..

          • Legnab

            Get a grip twinbanger , have you ever stepped inside a VW , thats probably the  biggest factor in clinching the  sale the feel from behind the wheel is very important .

            Every day you get in and at once you are at one with the ergonomics and the quality of the switch gear , let the plebs have their ice cream container dash plastics . 

          • Pete Petrass

             Thanks dude, nice to see some normal people around here instead of the silly little professional haters in their crumbledors.

    • Edward

      Glad youre happy with your purchase. With so many hot hatches theres one to suit everyone.

      I think people expect it to be less harsh because the whole car presents itself as quite sensible, and VW has that reputation.

      I have a civic type R and it is definately harsh, but people expect that with the spaceship looks and cockpit inspired interior. Frankly i wouldnt have it any other way ;)

  • Sonic

    Viper green = Best colour on any car ever, in the whole of human history.

    • TomW

      I don’t know, the lime green feels a bit 2009. I seem to remember Ford Fiestas getting around in that colour then, but they’ve moved on to bright orange.

  • Golfschwein


    no need for harsh word among gentlemen”

    Your own words, not mine.

    • Hung Low

      Says captain hypocrite himself!

      • Golfschwein

        Your fascination for me has no end. It’s unfair, really, as I have none for you. Hypocrite? That’s just your mirror talking, Mr Exclamation Mark Man.

          Can you hear the violin playing in the background, such a sad little man you are.
          Go cry to the moderators again about my use of exclamation marks, maybe they will try to ban me again courtesy of your sensitive side.

  • Jav

    What an ugly rear end it looks dumpy!

  • Martin

    There’s a grey Megane 250 in my street and it definitely looks the business. It beats the Scirocco for looks hands down.

  • Johnson

    Do you read what you have written before you click “post”? I assume that was copied straight from Babelfish?

  • Pete Petrass

     Don’t give up your day job cause you will never make it as your crystal ball is not working.
    Yes I am VERY happy with my purchase, kids grown up and left home, just me and the wife so yes we can afford to have a 4 seater car.
    Since I have never kept a car for over 100,000km I don’t care what happens after that.   You will probably find that most cars will start costing money, particularly in maintenance, when they get that old because, as is expected, parts reach end of life and wear out.   Perhaps YOU could get a better job so you too can afford to change your cars more often.

  • Luke Brinsmead

    I’d get this car at the drop of a hat, if I could afford it.

  • Ford Fairlane

    Hay CA why did you drive it on dirt? Now it will need a full service and safty check maybe even a tow truck.

    • Legnab

      I would not take a territory on dirt got enough front end problems just on tar .

      • Jober As A Sudge

        Question: Are there still problems with the Golf engines going “kaboom”? Or has this all been fixed now?

        • Legnab

          A myth spread by bogan car lovers , who hate anybody buying anything but a foriegn owned ford or holden , actually its envy .

  • Edward

    Looks a bit like a Volvo C30. Just a bit.

    If i was going to go for a 3 door hot hatch i grab one of the better looking ones like the Megane. If my civic type R didnt look the way it did, i would have traded it in for something 5 door a long time ago.

  • Tarquin, Hair Artiste

    Wow, what a cool car… what?  The 86 is nearly have the price and handles better?  Sorry VW Toyota gets the nod.  The game has changed… overpriced sports cars are now on the nose.

      HAIR SPRAY , stick to comb overs pal , cheap underpowered toy car not in the hunt , maybe the scoobie version with a turbo , makes me laff toyota take the credit for all scoobies hard effort .

  • allcarsarerips

    hmmmm, should i add an insult or a comment about the car?

  • Legnab

    Funny seen some pretty horrible colours on crummmers and falcoons that would make you sick , great for resale value which is pretty sick anyway .

    I’d imagine you would have one very strong wrist.

  • Robin_Graves

    Coming from a VeeDud fanboy that’s a fairly big call, I like it.

  • Golfschwein

    Yes, like Popeye’s.

  • Dominique Vøn Hütch

    You crack me up mang, just spat out a mouthful of soy chai LOLZING!

  • Golfschwein

    “The ‘facts’ are you can always find a survey to meet your needs.”

    Well, ahem, gosh!! (Golfschwein suppresses laughter and feels a small amount of pity at the same time) We can’t have people doing THAT, can we?

  • Robin_Graves

    I rest my case.

  • Golfschwein

    Are you looking for a home for your whopper?

  • Pete Petrass

     Gee you must be all of 14yo with that sort of nugatory dribble.   You and your mate hung low are a real pigeon pair aren’t you, both of you too afraid to reveal real names yet ironically hiding behind pretend names referencing large male appendages.   Now there are two massive inferiority complexes if ever I saw.   We all know those who have to publicly brag about their size usually just have little weenie ones.   Hence why you have to troll forums like this making out you are some sort of big expert on everything.

  • Legnab

    Not seen too much cutting edge from the bogan ranges laterly , ford just cant be bothered as its about to get knifed and GM  really dont care , just another rehash of the VE  coming up , stick a new front and back on it , upgrade the ice cream container interior plastics , hey presto a whole new car for the crummerphiles to drool over at the pub .

  • Johnson

    Don’t know how you have come to the conclusion that I am a VeeDud fanboy, I just read the comments. Love a good keyboard warrior

  • Hung Low

    Nice assumptions Pete Pets ass but sadly wrong again. Hung Low is the

    name given to one of my cars a modified vintage Cooper S, try getting your mind off men’s appendages for a change when making assumptions and when eating a banana you fraud.

  • Legnab

    They are all dills riding around in nemo/barry/twin/fung’s tow trucking searching for obsolete crummers and falcoons , to haul off to the dump .

  • Legnab

    And the faires are in the garden , floppy you have never even sat in a golf .

  • Legnab

    Try again nemo/floppy/twin , another tall story please .

  • allcarsarerips

    ok, ive always liked volkswagens. they get good reviews by people that own them but i read what u wrote and im having second thoughts now. I wanted to get a multivan for the family but i dunno anymore. cars are really overpriced in australia.
