"On the Continent" wink they do 0-100 kmh, which is 0-62 and a little bit. The times are always a tad slower, especially if there is an extra gear change involved...
Are you interested because of the 147, or the full VAG product???!
eek! </strong><hr /></blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Quite interested in both.As you know my next employer is offering me a Passat TDI.If I can convince ,them I figured I`d prefer a hatch.Which made me think about the Golf.If they let me choose a non VW,then obviously the 147 16V diesel is out soon too.
I`d really like the 156JTD SW but its gonna be too pricey.Although there is talk of the JTD 16V being offered in the 156 soon too,which may mean it comes within budget.
Basically I need something that is diesel,reasonably practical,around £17k-18k but still an enjoyable drive.Not many cars seem to satisfy all of those criteria. frown
