GT has a bit more Charisma IMO and they do handle differently despite being the same chassis, the GT has the stiffened floor pan from the sportwagon so its not ''just a 156 in a frock'' although I take your point of course scotty!
the GT looks ok, but underwheeled IMO but other than that a decent purchase considering the recent work.
the 156 from Dan is almost certainly a safer choice but if you want safe buy a Honda, IMO buy the one you want..if its the GT then take it to Dan after and have it heath checked, as I said on a previous thread negotiate hard as its better to have some funds left over for unexpected's..the mileage wouldn't worry me at all BTW 134k for a diesel is just getting warmed up! the advantages are at that mileage its almost certainly had all of th major stuff done ,maybe even twice.
so same advice, look for the normal carp that is advisable on a GT or 156, suspension,oil cooler,belts ,yada yada!
