Re: 147 Jtdm Q2
Just about to collect mine from the dealer.
I've driven one on a handling course at Knockhill and had a further test drive on Saturday of last week.
In terms of the handling course they just don't let go of the tarmac either through the slalom course or the 180 degree hairpin (thought my kidneys would leave my body before the back end would let go).
I found the 1.9 JTD engine responsive with no obvious turbo lag.
Full leather interior with all the toys......including Bose, cruise control, MP3 and rear parking sensors.
And the fact that I am saving £6,000 on new with only 150 miles on the clock swung it for me.
As for fuel economy.......having owned a 3.0 V6 GTV I'm happy with any economies on that - only £140 Road Tax.
