I wish it didn't look like a squashed frog.

Not true. In 2009, a 1.4 TSi 160 came in at £19,105 and a 2.0 TDI 140 at £19,815.

I actually owned a Scirocco and I quite liked the looks. As I owned it, I started to find it uglier and uglier. Usually it happens the other way around, but after a while, I began to realise that it really was quite an unattractive looking thing.

Maybe your ownership experience influenced your view of its looks.....

Perhaps. To me, it just looks really dated now! I just remember walking towards it once, thinking that it really was an ugly duckling. I liked its low and square stance at first, but it just looked squashed and out of proportion to me after a while!
