VW Golf - How can I find out the exact model of my car - mrjohnwatts

I've just bought a Golf from my friend and I'm not sure of the exact model to tell my insurers. I've tried to check using the licence plate and it comes up as a Golf E SDi, but on the engine there is a TDi badge. I've also tried to check the VIN no but that is inconclusive too.

The info on the v5 registration document should give adequate details.

The V5C will only have technical details - sales model description is often cut very short.

Have a look at the V5 and check the engine number, the first three letters will give the VW engine type, then check it here..
