Car is lovely mate and im glad it has the leather rather than the cloth.
Same brakes as i just fitted, see my thread for fitted pics. Getting wheels to fit over them is the biggest messing around. Gives a shout for discounted EBC brakes if you want them. Mine are awesome!
As for the house situation, before i bought my first house my mate said to me "you wont believe me, but with a house you end up with more spare cash"- and in my case it was totally true. Its me and my Mrs though, probably different if your talking about on your own.
You only live once though, and the Golf can always be sold to fund the house if required!
