looking to buy a 1997 145 1.4TS

Hi all,

I'm looking to buy a black 145 to replace my aging 155 which I will convert into a track car.

I will be using this car to bring me to work and back, so I'm wondering what the mileage would be like on the 1.4.

The car is in good condition, except an odd scratch in the paint (not too deep though)

I'm less interested in the power of the engine, but do wonder what the weight limit is for towing (to get the track car at the track)

The car has 110.000 km and will get new cambelts when I buy it. I'll make sure they change the tensioners too.

Hoping to hear from you all soon,

I'm not sure what the towing limit is on the 145, I suspect somewhere around 1000kg would be a guess at a sensible limit based on the caravanners guide of 80% kerbweight max. More of an issue I suspect would be torque; I remember towing a SAAB 9000 once with my 2.0QV and I had to slip the clutch like nobodys business on hill starts; never the same since. I suspect with a 1.4 you will really struggle
