Hi Guys, I bought a 2007 Golf 5 2.0 last year with the Votex bib and tail skirt...looks neat and really enhances the looks.
I'm looking for a local road test of this car in standard trim(its the Trendline) ...but even the Comfortline will do. Believe it or not, have been a local Car mag subscriber for more than 25 years, contacted them to ask for this road test, and never even got a reply- contacted twice by email! If anyone here has one or can point me in the right direction to get this, I will be most grateful. There are some overseas mags with road tests but as you know most do not have our SA version with the BHY motor.
I know this thread is old, but seems like the thread to place this request. Many thanks in anticipation.

Car Mag's stuff is protected by copyright to Ramsey Media, reproduction without their permission is violation of the copyright. I have reproduced stuff from them before with their consent. Contact one of the editors for possible rectification.

Thank you Mr Mazda for your suggestion, I am fully aware of the copyright to Ramsey media. As mentioned in my post, I contacted Car magazine twice per email to PURCHASE this road test...to no avail...in fact received no reply which is extremely poor. :deadhorse: I will not be renewing my subscription...sad after many, many years of Car.
What I am asking, is how and via what publication can I buy this road test...seeing as Car could not care less about my request. Thank you.
