| | Mk8 Ride quality & headlamp brightness questions...
Hi guys, first post - looking at buying a Mk8 in ES or EX model but the country roads up in Northumberland are dreadful.
My current 17"s are killing my suspension on my current car so I'm worried about going any bigger than 16" this time. Today I test drove a 2006 on 16"s & it was wonderful over the potholes & bumps, I wondered what the ride is like on the 17"s if anybody had experience of both & can compare????? You see I want the EX spec but need the ES spec wheels ideally (but I aint made of alloy wheels & £££)
STANDARD FACTORY HEADLAMPS
Secondly, the roads up here are so dark you wouldn't believe, add rain & it's a nightmare to see safely. My current car is an older year 2000 Merc c220 & the headlamps are shockingly bad (even with xenon daylight bulbs in them).
Could any of you guys tell me if the standard lamps on the mk8 are good or do I need to purchase xenons spec car? I know the xenons will be brighter but had hoped newer technology might have fixed the standard headlamp efficiency.
Hope to here your wisdom soon.
