I'm looking into purchasing a Volkswagen Golf MK 5 and wondered if someone could point me in the right direction of knowing the different models.

I am a Golf enthusiast and have had two, but a while ago - when it used to be Drivers, SE's and what not! I have no idea how to educate myself about the current models... Google was not my friend in this instance.

I'm looking for an equivalent of what used to be an SE.

Any help appreciated :)

Having owned many Golf's myself, the best place you could possibly go is to the MKIV's forums - http://uk-mkivs.net/

The forums are busy and the guys are extremely helpful over there no matter what mark or model of Golf you are interested in.

Be aware of the incredibly long wait time on golfs atm too, 20 weeks on average so don't dally if you are serious. There is still an SE model, the 1.4TSI SE is a great choice, tons of great reviews on WhatCar etc.

Thanks for advice. Long wait time in what respect?

If they're after a Mk 5 then I'm assuming it's second hand as the mk 6 is the current model.

That's what I was thinking - It's MK 6 that's out now - I know that much!

Just to clarify - it is a second hand model. Still going to be marginally fussy though!

Parkers do a good summary which shows the different trims and which engines are avaiable:

Just be very careful when choosing a car and don't assume the spec, always double check it has any features you're wanting as there's some anomalies over the years as to what came as standard and what was optional. Having recently been researching VAG cars I do wish they had a more similar to system to Honda where there;s only a handful of trims and options making it fairly easy to know what a car has.

go for a 1.9TDI , IMO one of the best engines available.

Thanks John. Will bear that in mind and check out Parkers. Yes I think everyone will be different as I guess it's built to the spec of the person who is buying from new. Just want to get a bit of ground work in before I start looking too much on autotrader and test driving cars. Of course if I wad buying a car from new. I wouldn't bother with a new shape golf. Why when the Scirocco is soooooooooo much more appealing!!! :)
#14
Wow. Thanks again John. Just been reading the Parkers info. So comprehensive!!!
#15
I'm glad you've found it useful, I spent many, many hours reading through it all because I was being pretty fussy as well and was trying to find a car to meet pretty touch requirements. I was tempted to buy new as it would have been a lot less hassle but I just couldn't justify the cost knowing there were plenty of other items I'd rather buy with the money plus the car I ended up with had just 20K on the clock and was in immaculate condition - people are genuinely surprised it's not new.
