makes a nicer noise than the TS, but crucially has less power and the boxers do not get the quick rack steering either. As they are rare, spares are not so easy to find either. The same money may buy a 2.0, but the engine is less of a gamble on a boxer regarding bottom ends and belts IMO.

Still for £450......:D

Of course I wanna do it, but can I take the nagging ?
Plus (sorry Baby etc) I'm not too sure if I like the 145, I know they look better in the flesh but knid of look like a stumpy estate.

The TS engine was only introduce (other than the 2.0) into the 14# range late 97 early 98 all previous engines were boxers (again except 2.0)...

I bought very recently a 1996 146ti with FASH (history from veloches of london) cam belt done and only 68k on clock, TAX and 12 months MOT £390... Smashing car had to put 2 tyres on the front and 2 wishbones really pleased...
