Plenty of people have more knowledge than me but the gtv rear subframe can be damaged by worn suspension.I believe the airbag light is more of an issue on the gtv than a 156 and its a real pain if the self closing windows dont work.I have had 3 gtvs in the last year aside from my spider the most noticable difference was the one that i bought with uprated suspension bushes, it was fabulous with great roadholding and compared to my spider was like driving a different beast.I keep the spider as i just poodle around in it but if your getting a gtv the uprated suspension is a must.
