Today I've been crawling underneath the UP and my Edition 30 GTI. The UP at 3yrs old I've been treating rust and waxoyling the suspension and subframe.
The Golf has a seized caliper.
So the Golf has cast steel alloy suspension components vs. rusty pressed steel.
The Golf has aluminium alloy suspension components vs. rusty pressed steel.
The seized caliper (now sorted) on the Golf is still nice and shiny red from the factory vs. a rusty cheap and nasty caliper.
The Golf has around 300bhp and drives amazingly well at 13yr old.
The UP only just about manages 130bhp. But I still like it.
Well you get the picture :unsure:
