Thanks guys. Honestly I'm loving the colour more than wheels
I had 2 black VW golfs previously(mk3 and 4) and a colour that actually excites my eyes is a welcome change. Not to mention the Chrome BMW trim.

Really hope so, I have 11K to go

Was heavily considering the extended warranty plans, but having looked at the engine forums I only see this knocking issue and thats it!. (Need to look into if that even affects me)
Compare that to my previous Mk4 golf tdi...
