Re: GT JTD Better than the 2.4 156?
Having come from a 10v 2.4JTD 156 to a GT JTD I can say go for the GT. Its a little more cramped inside, but that just makes it feel more sporty. The interior on the 156 is way better but thats the only downside, however the seats in the GT make up for it.
Both of my cars have been seen by Nigel and I'd say both were of similar performance, except in the corners where the GT will leave a 156. MPG is similar, the noise isn't quite as nice in the GT but seeing yourself in a shop window makes up for that.
I'm pleased I went for the GT. It was an itch that needed to be scratched!
