Excellent choice...looks smart and drives brilliantly!

Old habits die hard and it took a leap of faith for me to order my new car from, but £5K+ off list was too tempting and overall it was an excellent experience. The supplying dealer (Lifestyle Brighton) kept me in the loop throughout the ordering process and my car was delivered 7 weeks after placing the order. So far (5,000 miles) the Leon has proved to be a fine choice. It is great to drive with the punchy 1.8 Turbo complementing the very smooth DSG transmission, and it looks very smart in Montsant Red. Fuel economy is not the best, but I didn't expect it to be and this isn't an issue for me. It is surprisingly comfortable and the ride and handling are both great. My only gripe is that road noise suppression is disappointing - Spanish roads are a lot smoother surfaced than those in UK - but this doesn't detract from the all round brilliance of the package. Strongly recommended.
