I've just joined this forum, as I'm thinking of trading my slightly dull (if reliable) Audi A3 for a GTV. I'm a 32yr old Product Designer living in Hampshire, with a passion for all things Italian - not least my beloved Ducati!
I'm hoping some of you might be able to point me in the right direction, as far as advice on buying, problem areas, and things to check.
I've done a bit of digging and it seems the rear subframe bushes need checking out, but other than that, perhaps you might all be able to help!
I've been looking specifically at 2.0 TS models, around 97-98 period (in other words, worth about the same as my Audi).
I've been struggling to find lowish mileage models in dealers - most seem to be 80k or over. I had a look at a fairly reasonable one today with 86k - pretty tidy, but it concerns me that in 18 months time I'll have a car with over 100k on the clock - what are they like at higher mileages?
