Default Got myself a new car!







We had an Opel Astra (2004), but at 250.000+ kilometers it was kinda falling apart at the seams. With a second kid about to be born (any day now, literally), we figured it was time for a bigger family car.

Bye bye Astra, hello Volkswagen Golf Variant (2014). Not the coolest car in the world or anything, but it's exactly what we need and can afford, so I'm very happy with our new ride.

(Of course, it merely compliments the Suzuki GSXR750. )

My buddy just picked up a Tiguan and it's gorgeous. Really, really comfy to sit in.

Gas; we don't drive enough for diesel to be financially sensible.

What do you mean? I was under the impression that diesel was cheaper than gas in Europe. Does a car with a diesel engine cost more upfront?

Diesel is cheaper per liter, but taxes on the cars are higher, with the amounts differing per nation. Depends on how much you drive, whether it's more economical or not. Plenty of other political stuff going on surrounding diesel cars, which I'm not fully up-to-date with though.

Congrats on the car! Looks nice! I am confused with their options over there. You have dual zone climate control, but no steering wheel buttons?

Ugh. Yeah. By default the Volkswagen has few features, so it's up to the buyer to decide what package he wants. Apparently the original buyer didn't shell out for a multifunctional steering wheel, which means the car didn't even have cruise control. I think cruise control is more important than dual zone climate control or seat warmers, so I had that added after the test drive.
