Yeah like £187/month was frankly an absolute kick I. Teeth to the people who paid over 30k for a car, Not just the fact people were driving them on corsa money, It's the fact they sold 1000's all in the same 6month window, Recently they all started crashing back on to the market and obviously the price crashed

Just shows you how far the market has gone.

Only problem is every dog seems to have them round here. + the community at vwroc is full of absolute spastic's but apart from that a hell of alot of car for that money.

Buying at this price your onto a winner, Buy at 30k or there about a you'll lose heavy

I have an A250 engineered by AMG and the exhaust is quite loud in my opinion. It bangs and pops really easily and has had loads of compliments. The red trim is gorgeous too, defo go for an engineered by AMG A250 if possible. They defo stand out more and are a bit more special in my opinion.

I moved from a Polo GTI (1.4 tsi) to a A250 4Matic  FL.(effectively the replacement to the engineered by AMG)

Golf R was on my radar but I fell out with VW over shoddy service and build quality eventually threatening legal action. I did test drive the R before the relationship failed and it just felt a bit dead to me. Hugely capable car but just boring and there's so many of them about. I've seen one or two other 250s but probably see an R every day.

Under real driving conditions the Polo feels more sprightly and I would argue quicker than the Golf GTI and if you're used to a polo I think the Golf R might disappoint. Build, finish and service is streets ahead with Mercedes in my opinion. But test drive both as people have different likes and dislikes.
