The JTS isn't quite as fruity sounding as the 2.0TS. I had a 2.0TS for 5 years in my old 156 and have had a 2.0JTS in my GT for 3 years. There's not much difference in my view, but I'm no expert on these things.
The JTS still sounds decent, and pulls more evenly in my view than the TS (which had a tendency to die out a bit quick from memory). And fuel economy is alleged to be slightly better in the JTS, although c30mpg is still nothing to write home about (unless you have nothing else to write about).
Like the TS engine, it's known for being a little fragile and has a tendency to drink oil, but if it's a well-cared-for example it should be good enough.
And of course I should end with the word CAMBELT.
