Replacement for a VW Bora/Jetta – compact executive saloon?

My much loved 2005 Bora Hi-line has now done 270,000 miles & I am struggling to see what could replace it. Sometimes called a ‘baby-mercedes’ due to the build quality the old car’s forward visibility is outstanding & the car ‘rides high’ & upright with a steep windscreen so parking & manouvering is vastly better than today’s ‘cab-forward’ designs where the driver’s field of view is degraded. Also, since 2005, British roads & motorways have deteriorated & there are more speed cushions so a bit more ground clearance & better ride cushioning are required – the bora was well-known to ‘bottom-out’ on speed cushions or undulating surfaces. Even today, in the winter you will often see Mk4 golfs with the plastic undertray ripped off & dangling underneath the car – its an expensive nuisance to replace them at c.£150 a time.

Finally today’s ‘equivalent’ vw car is 60% more expensive than the 2005 bargain price I paid of £14,500. So with a current list price of c. £25,000 what else is there for that kind of cash.

The ideal spec is the bora hi-line; a 4-door saloon, a 2litre diesel engine, automatic gearbox and top quality leather seats. And due to potholes – the option of 16″ tyres. And not forced to accept 17″ tyres or sports lowered suspension if you want the ‘top-spec’ car. Because they dont make the Bora anymore there are no direct equivalent cars so I have selected a few cars that get as close as possible – but please let me know your recommendations & the reasons why – thanks

Administrator answers:

Exactly why are you using Caviar Greens when you’re already spending so much on the system? They’re horrible hard drives when it comes to performance. You should get Caviar Black if you can.

It looks pretty good though and it should all work, although I don’t understand why you need such an extreme build. Really if you got this much money, you’re better off switching the CPU out for a 950 and the GPU for two SLI two GeForce 480.
