Finally took delivery of my company car. It's a VW Touran 1.6 110bhp TDi with DSG auto, adaptive cruise control and is pretty well... grey!

Beats my old hanging Avensis!

It's f*cking huge! So if anyone needs anything fetching and carrying around the midlands hit me up! I get free fuel so happy to help anyone for a few beer tokens.

As I asked on the gti6 forum, are you still based in Hinckley?

Hired the 2.0 140 diesel version of this last year, was impressed! Did about 300 miles in it, great cruiser on the motorway and very easy to drive for such a big car even round town (not the easiest to park though!), very spacious inside with 7 seats and a big boot, cornered fairly well, pulled well for such a big car too and was very smooth and revvy, loved revving the tits off it with the DSG, love the DSG gearbox though... just amazing! decent on fuel too for its size, just not cheap! Can imagine the 110 being a bit of a chore to drive though with 30 bhp less.

Yeah the 110bhp is a bit sluggish but put it in sport and it's ok

Ah the 110 is all about MPGz man not speed. They do silly MPG if you nurse them, like 70+. IIRC it's free road tax if you get manual, though not the DSG.

Other 1 came to its 18 months so new one arrived today. Gone with the Touran again as the options are still just this or an a3. Managed to rack up 42,789 miles in the last 1 so aiming to beat that this time!

So been trying to get out of my company car scheme for a while and I’ve finally been given the overhead. Coz we get personal fuel and I’m a higher rate tax payer the tax I pay on this vehicle is extortion and tbh we want to save to get a T5.1 Camper so the £300-400 I’ll be saving per month having a daily I don’t pay finance etc on will go toward that directly without effecting normal finances at all. Although obviously repairs will have to come out of that budget. If it doesn’t work out I can opt back in in March. Picked this up this morning:

ST TDCI 2.2, remap and intercooler for dyno proven 197BHP, should see 40mpg, it’s got a massive boot and all the cruise, heated seats, air con stuff you usually get. The guy who owned it was a Ford super fan so it’s been pampered. I’ve overpaid a bit but bought outright in cash so no finance and am quite happy

I'd love to pm you my opinion on these. But I love them. The 2.2s are sooooo much better than the shitty 2.0 litre diesels they had. I'm not just saying that either as I now own a ford. They are a hoot to drive and go like hell for what they are. Makes a change I actually agree with a car purchase. You should feel privileged lols.
On a break from 306oc for personal reasons. If anyone needs or wants me most of you have my number and or facebook messenger
Thanks for the good times guys n gals. I might be back. Who knows.

Yeah nice motor. Super torquey and the boot is unreal on the estate.
Keep an eye on front subframe bolts... They come loose!
