Re: 156 JTD characteristcs
If 1st on the 1.9 is the same as the 2.4 it would be very short as soon as you move, stick it in 2nd and your away.
You dont get the explosive pickup of the TS, but JTD's are about torque theres no point reving them it will just break, short shift use the the torque and away you go.......
Its very rare that you rev it over 3.5k theres just no point, but once you get used to them they are no less enjoyable to drive. The bonus is 40+ mpg, you never top the oil up, no engine worries!
It has to be said thought that i am still morning the sale of the GTV!
