Not mine (and not necessarily fast) but just saw this:

Can’t be many 1 owner examples out there. Good value?

It is indeed modestly fast....


Every time I've seen one of these I wince and call it horrible names. 4 door Porsche?! WTF!





Now you come along and post this, and my reaction is "holy s**t that looks amazing"
I love it but hate you for making it look that good biggrin

Your dog hates that. Why not get a dog bar installed instead? Far better then being shoehorned into a box. Can the poor thing even look out the windows with the boot closed?

I agree as my dogs are constantly from one window to the other! But I don’t have kids so any luggage can go on the back seat, if he has kids, dog and luggage that is really the only solution.

Exactly. And to be honest I don't like it when she's just in the boot loose and sitting up looking out the window as she can skid about / fall over far too easily. She won't settle down and sleep, whereas she does in the crate. And doesn't seem to hate it as jumps in straight away and never seems desparate to get out.

This looks fantastic, really have a hankering for one of these as an upgrade from my Octavia VRS. Are you leasing it?

Our spaniel loved hers and it allows you to pack the boot and the dog safely giving her the room needed. We have a steel crate at home too, they love them because it's somewhere they can feel safe and relaxed.

People love to comment on the way above but generally they have no clue what they are taking about.

Yep, first lease and great car.

I had a MK2 Octavia VRS, then a TTS and now this.

It's basically the TTS with a practical body, which is what I wanted.

Much better at putting the power down too, it's always very easy to overwhelm the front wheels in the FWD 2.0 turbo VAG stuff.

Same here, steel crate at home for overnight / when we're out, which she often opens the door to herself and takes herself in. We used the travel crate in the house to get her used to it when we first got it. Always hops straight in as soon as the boot is open smile

Breadvan,

I've been trying to find that D3 since it was for sale at Targa Florio. You don't happen to know its whereabouts do you?

Thank you!
They are ispiri FFR6 21 x 10.5 that were Bronze last year when i bought them. Had them painted a Bentley chrome silver recently, and the wife curbed them the very first time she drove it again!! The car is lowered by 10mm and it's running 10mm front and 12mm rear spacers. Was trying to create a certain look without going ott.

The owner after me is/was on here. It also popped up at exclusivecarcare and left looking amazing. Some regret from me I must say, lovely car.

My latest estate, after 4 diesel estates I decided something a bit more fun was needed, I’m not disappointed 😀
