1: No it's not.
2: Reality is sub 7.0 but they aren't allowed to steal the thunder from Polo Gti and Audi A1 185
Never trust a man who drives a Skoda or who has facial hair
Flippin dsg gearbox only with no manual option is madness, along with the ibiza cupra they must have lost so many sales...madness...
Nice motor, very rapid with a few choice mods

Gotta be a mug to buy the polo gti over this

I agree-Polo Gti costs another £5k anyway!

And as for above comment that it is slow, I've been in Ultima GTR, Nissan GTR, M3 etc so yes it is slow in comparison but would be a great everyday small car. And what is much faster for the same price??

What has available alternatives got to do with 7.3secs 0-60 being slow? I said 7.3secs is slow and it is. If your really worried about bang for buck don't buy this ugly little depreciation nightmare, go pick up a 2nd hand 335i or Scooby P1 - but thats a different discussion entirely. I stand by my statement.

Everytime there is a car thread, do we have to have this? A second hand blah blah blah is faster. I am not gonna point out all the plusses of the deal vs your ridiculous alternatives as you're just trolling.

Great car for those who gain great pleasure from their inferiority complex.
Still a Vw Audi engineered vehicle. A great little motor for 13k. The mk1 was a nicer looking car but was only made in a 130 bop TFI engine

As i said, the alternatives are an entirely different disscussion, it was YOU in fact you that brought up the whole what else can you get / bang for buck argument - does that make you a troll by your own standards? The fact is 7.3secs 0-60 is slow for a supposed hot hatch and this car is dog ulgy (opinion) both of which mean that this is not a good deal in my book. Now like it or lump it, i care not.


P.S The interior looks like the result of somebody throwing a bucket of cat sick and the Seat spare parts bin into the telepod, from "the Fly" - now thats trolling!

The fact is, it's pretty much the fastest hot hatch for this price. You obviously care enough

The fact is at that speed its not a hot hatch at all. Thats the nettle which you seem to be failing to grasp.
it has ISOFIX, for a CHILDS SEAT ????

Does it have an ashtray and beer can holder too ???
my 3 litre could do 0-60 in 8 seconds and that weighed about 2 tonnes in 1999
Love my Skoda Superb
Love It
Nice deal but god its ugly for a hatch... oO
Muvver Fabiatastic, a real wolf in sheeps clothing, ace deal!
Quick car, nice
Last time I saw a listing anywhere for a 7 speed Pocket Rocket, it cost £13.49 and came from LoveHoney, thought this was a mis-price.

thats one ugly car...:(
Nobody can deny that this is a cracking deal for the price, but man that car is embarrasingly ugly, its just laughable to look at inside and out.
A real shame.


Just my opinion like.

Maybe if you've got tiny genitals and are overcompensating, yes.
