Sportsvan ordered

I had been thinking of a 1.6 diesel DSG, but a test drive (admittedly in a Passat sedan, not a Golf sportsvan but that's all that was available) showed that at the UK legal limit of 70mph there's no grunt left. A 2 litre diesel (manual) GT was much better, hardly surprising with 36% power & torque increase although I thought is a bit harsh on its 17" wheels &15mm lowered suspension
So it'll be a 2.0 SE (the UK mid range model).
Delivery "September"

First brim-to-brim refill range now 570 miles & car gives 59mpg whereas I reckon 51.0mpg (all on "eco")
Very pleased, the ACC is awesome smoothly slowing or acceleration as required to attain the set speed
Also like the way it remembers that I like "eco" & the cruise control so it defaults to these
