In the end, although I enjoyed the Mercedes more in extremis, I’m giving the nod to the Golf, not least because it’s nearly £7,000 cheaper and just as fast across country. And the journey itself? Well, parked up on Aberystwyth’s beachfront as the sun drops cleanly into the sea, we conclude that South Marine Terrace makes a much better end point than Gas Works Road.
