they're nice and comfy for sure, and the build quality on these is alright apparently. A lot better than most anyway.

from a sports point of view the 1.8t lump isn't the best in standard form, and standard handling is boat like + it isn't the best on fuel either, but you'll probably find it'll cost the same as your fiesta to run lol, however it's still nippy, very comfy if scott's gt-tdi mk4 he sometimes drives is anything to go by, and a lot of the ladies like them. :lol:

As long as you expect a comfy warm hatch that's a good allrounder, you will not be dissapointed. Some say they have no soul, hell even i used to, but you can't deny it's a decent car.

Well the one in the pics was a complete pile of wank, scratches everywhere and the starter motor hanged in and dodgy touch up on bumper.

Looked at another last nite too but had a small scuff/dent in rear arch. Other than that it drove nice, no knocks bangs rattles but cant really deal with completely poo bodywork.

Il just keep on searching 4 the min.

make sure you get one with a full service history because it things go wrong its not going to be cheap, the maf sensors have a habit of going and they are really expensive to replace :shock:

Very nice motor on fuel i'm averaging 29.2mpg frrom the same 1.8t 20v. mines nice and nippy too plus a quick trip to REVO, custom code or jabba sport will make it even better. don't know about the spec on GTi's though try looking out for A3's about the same car but agree on getting one with full sevice history.

Parts are cheap to me! work for motor factors and get stuff for cost price which is great. Maf sensors for these arent to bad price wise anyway...

Well, got one finally.

GT TDI 115bhp,
black 3dr
heated seats
climate control
headlight washers
abs
traction control

One or two very minor dings, but drives well, good on fuel and im happy with it. Interior in pretty minto condition, boot and seats look like theyve never been used. Not to slow for a diesel either.

Will get a pics up soon.
