Just put deposit on a second hand GT JTD


Just put a deposit on a 54 reg 52k GT. Budget means it doesn't have leather. Only extr is parking sensors which I think are pretty essential.

Haven't even seen it yet. Dealer is miles away and I got a good deal (I hope!). I will do all the normal checks but is there anything special I should look our for.

It has FASH and had the cambelt done at 50k.

Always wanted one but have been too expensive. Hope I enjoy it. Remap would be fun but too expensive. Hope 150 bhp is enough!

Defo get it remapped, you should get 190bhp.. Be prepared to change the clutch though, and be when you do it would be wise to fit a Q2 differential in at the same time (an extra £250)..

My one's got factory parking sensors and frankly I hate them.It's like something out of Mission Impossible when it's bleeping like it's going to self-destruct and then you get out and have a look and you're about four feet away from anything!

Well, leather and big alloys is usually a given must which will go some way to explaining why you got a good bargain.

Nevertheless, you've got yourself a fantastic bit of kit - you certainly won't be dissappointed. It comes with a fairly spec level as standard, climate control, leccy windows, remote lock, anti skid all that gubbins.

Xenons, Bose, CD autochanger, heated seats, winter pack, climate pack they were all extras - but they're nice to have, not essentials.
