hi guys i have just ordered a 1.4 in v\green with dsg box.2 months delivery agaahhhhh.
but give me a chance to get the finances in position.i will sell my old car on e bay, the trade in was very low .but if no sale then i will let it go on the trade price, but really its criminal
what i was offered .i have had several vw cars in the past 2 corras [one 2.9 vr6 the other a 2.0 ]both very good cars no faults.one little loop gti another great car but has a lot of mechanical blips [new cam at 900 miles] ,that really pp me off and other warning light blips.
polo for the wife that was no trouble. so hopeing the new vw will be good un.
viewed a 1.4 at a dealer in v\green :shock: to my mind its the only colour to have .

Hi Sparky and welcome to the forum.

Congrats on the new order. 2 months is not so bad, plenty waiting longer. You'll almost always get more for your car privately. It's just the pain of juggling the sale so your not without a car.

Good to have you on board

Welcome to the 'waiting for a Viper Green 1.4' section of the forum. I love the colour, not least because I'll never lose the car in a car park, but I'm slightly worried I'll get noticed by all the wrong people (spotty 19 year olds with Corsas and an attitude, vandals, plod). However, I really thought it suited the car, and since I've just passed 40 (well 42 actually), I'm definitely in the 'if not now, then when?' mind set :roll: . Still, 12 hours on from registering and no one has told me I've chosen the wrong engine yet... :p

Hi. My Viper 1.4 TSI arrives in two days time (Wed morning) so only a few more hours to wait after a 4 month start! I think I have seen most of the colours now in the flesh and have to say I still love the green! I'm not a 'look at me' sort of person and was worried about the colour at first but every time I see one I am re-assured! I will let you know what I think of the performance but I do have to allow for the fact I'm driving a Prius at the moment and so I'm likely to notice quite a difference even if its not as responsive as some you out there would wish for!

I have the 1.4 and its so responsive its unreal, you get performance and economy, perfect economy!!!the wya i understand the turbo and supercharger works is that thae supercharger works until 3800 revs then the turbo kicks in but thats only my guess from driving it, if someone knows different though im open to suggestions.

what's wrong with that both edible colours :D

I'll post a photo of the two of them together when we get his about a month after mine but you'll definately need shades on then :lol:
