What was the best car you ever had in its era. I think mine was an Alfasud which was pretty rubbish with everything except the driving experience which was superb. The steering had so much feel, no powered steering of course,the engine was nice and smooth and it inspired you to rev it, the brakes were good and everything was tactile and perfectly balanced. The Leon by contrast has effortless steering but could do with more feedback, my Leon brakes are superbly effective but could also do with more feel. The Leon 1.4Tsi engine performs beyond expectations but I see no point in reving much above 4000 because there just doesn't feel like theres much advantage, and the engine noise is a bit forgetful.
