Hi there. I've taken delivery of my new 1.5 evo SEL in pure white with optional winter pack & heated steering wheel this week. Last car was a Golf GTD & a tough act to follow. I was really apprehensive as to to how the 1.5 petrol would compare to my torquey 184bhp golf having read mixed reviews online, but I'm really impressed. Not as quick obviously but it certainly shifts for a big car & has sufficient torque throughout the range that I'm not missing the golf !.
