A Little Slice of Driver Heaven

Changes may not be evident at first, but there are new LED headlamps, which feature some strip-style nifty daytime running lights

Sometimes you might find yourself in a situation where all the stars seem to align. Where everything seems to go the right way, while dodging the bad vibes, yet as the day progresses, little things you have done all seem to fall into the right place.

That to us is the best way we can describe the facelifted Mk 7 1.4 litre Volkswagen Golf. The Golf has recently gone through a facelift, with some needed outward and inward freshening up.

Changes may not be evident at first, but there are new LED headlamps, which feature some strip-style nifty daytime running lights. In the rear, the Highline trim means that you will also get Dynamic Turn signal lamps integrated into a newly-styled rear tail, similar to what is offered from Audi.

Our Highline trim test car also gets a set of 7.5J X 18 rims, on 225/40 tyres, and is also equipped with a slightly stiffer sports suspension with anti-roll bars for sharper handling characteristics, and the car sits a little lower too. The more affordable Comfortline model on the other hand, is equipped with a set of easier-on pocket during tyre replacement 17” rims, and a tuned-for-comfort suspension.

These guys are fast, responding the very next day with offers and more importantly higher than what was offered by the dealer whom I am buying my car from.

Yazz is very professional. He advised me on when to sell the car and checked in with me later. His dealer, Sam, was awesome. An understanding and kind man. He went the extra mile and accommodated our timing.
