The Golf Gti is the most accomplished hot hatch ever made for many reasons.
Curiously, I have never owned a mark 5 which kind of escapes me, having
concentrated on the older mk1 and 2 models and being fortunate enough to
own a split new MK7 R model for two years as a daily driver I kind of thought
I knew all there was to know about the model line up and its evolution
and no further education was required. I must have owned in excess of
100 Golfs over the last 25 years, what more was there to find out? In essence
what makes a great GTi is not outright power, its the balancing and weighting
of all the major controls, and how they harmonize with the amount of power
available at your foot. Having driven this car for a week and I am truly taken
with it, I had read reviews about it stating that it was possibly the best
incarnation of the model and that opinion is rightly founded. Its a complete
car, it covers all bases and is truly all the car anyone will ever need.
It offers exciting performance in a practical package, yes you will source
quicker more powerful hot hatches but none will be as fully rounded or as
accessible and exploitable by the driver. The car responds supremely to every
input from the driver with an effortless ease, drive it for day and it feels
like an old friend. The MK5 is the sweet spot and as years roll on are sure to
be recognized as such, they have actually stopped depreciating now and are
fast becoming a modern classic. Couple up all the above with a car that will
return 32mpg over mixed driving situations, offers supreme reliability, excellent
build quality, cheap servicing costs, proper street cred and image, and you
will get close to understanding that this is probably the best GTi of all
time. I am pretty much in awe of this wee car, when you head out in the morning
and have a few different sets of keys to choose from and you make a beeline for it,
what does that tell you?

Pre delivery inspected and registered by T J Hamilton VW in Cookstown ON 23.05.2008.
This is the final year of the MK5 model on a 2008 08 plate. A matching numbers
car with all original factory panels and never been involved in any accidents.

The car
The temptation to meddle or change anything on the car has been wholly resisted.
This high degree of originality is not easily found on these cars with owners changing
alloys, remapping, changing stereos and suspension, you name it, it gets altered.
It has an excellent history file dating right back to new. Two working remote keys,
a complete original book pack with drivers handbook and service booklet detailing
12 engine services. The timing belt and water pump were changed at 63000 miles
as a precautionary measure. All the panels are original and the paint is in excellent
shape also looking to be factory paint with no nasty surprises and no signs
of dreaded corrosion around the wings. The interior is as untouched and as un
restored as the rest of the car, the seats heat and up are are roasting hot for winter
driving days. The engine bay is even detailed and the underside is totally leak free
with plastic under tray still in place.

The Drive
It sits perfectly on its standard suspension set-up, with no clunks or knocks
either, just a solid firm and well absorbed ride. This is an all systems go car
ready to be enjoyed. The tyres are excellent for wet weather driving inspiring
great confidence on the twisty stuff. If you seek practicality, performance and
strength in one affordable package, few cars will deliver like the Mk5 GTI and
is easily the most practical and sensible everyday car in its class in this price
