Roy Dyson of Devon in the south west UK must be amazed! In 2002, Roy bought a silver 51-plate Volkswagen Golf S TDI, soon after he had relocated from Lancashire in the north. At the time, Roy's diesel VW Golf had just a smidgen over 6,000 miles on the 'clock', but he and his wife knew that, having just retired, they would be racking up plenty of miles each year, visiting their friends and family back in the north. Day trips, long weekends away, trips back to Lancashire plus their day to day life, soon resulted in their Volkswagen Golf showing 30,000 on the dashboard.
