VW Golf


Hello all,

I've joined the forum as, after years of waiting, I'm finally on the verge of becoming an Alfa owner.

I plan to sell my dependable but slightly dull Golf GTI in the next month and I shall be on the look out for a 147.

A year or two ago I test drove a JTD 16v TI (150bhp) and was blown away by the performance and smoothness of the engine and the steering and agility of the chassis.

That's the model I'd ideally like to go for and I just wondered if there were any gremlins or particular things to be aware of. My budget will be around 8k - 9k so I'll be aiming for the facelifted model with fairly low mileage but nonetheless it would be good to know if there are particular trouble points to look out for. I'll definitely be looking for a manual version.

Anyway I mostly wanted to say hello but any advice greatly appreciated.
