Coming from someone who owns a Mk4 and test drove the Mk5 the reviews quite fair.

The Mk4 is way more hardcore to drive, but not sure i agree that you'd be doing more speed in the Mk5.

You defo not be fighting with the car as much, But it feels far more grown up than the Mk4.

ive driven both and bought the mk4 because i felt it was more aesthetically pleasing to the eye, other than that there really isnt alot in it

I love my MK 4, there is a 5 sat on the forecourt of my local stealers at the mo and i pass it every time i go to tescos, I'm still not keen on the look of it, gonna go for test drive one day. Im not having a pop at mk 5 owners btw, its just my opinion on the looks.

The MkV according to the review and in my eyes is for the more refined older gentleman whereas the MkIV is for us younguns :)

I'm 26 and buying one in a few months... Does that mean people are going to think I'm 40 and loosing my hair?

nah.... theyll just think its your dads car ;):D
You're right! Maybe a sticker in the window saying "This isn't my Dad's car"?... I am planning on the R300 conversion by APS though. Full Milltek, Cams, Air Filter, Remap, Increased Rev Limit, Haldex etc... Should help to identify me as a "young fool". :ridinghorse:

Yep i think the review is quite fair having access to both the IV and V at the moment with me owning the IV and the GF owning a V i've been playing about with both and there's not much in it until you start to really go for it then i would say the IV is defo faster but the V would out handle it and you won't have arms like Sly stalone after a thrash on the B roads either, also the brakes on the V are awesome compared to mine but its only done 1600 miles and mines done 29000 so thats maybe the reason. Having said that i still prefer the IV for looks,noise and hardcore factor but when its a relaxing "quick" drive then the V is the one to go for plus the kids will fit in easier if you have any.

Yup, that's a fair piece. Personally I do like the DSG although I traditionally prefer stirring the ol' lever.
