VW Golf GTi TDi 150

Many glorious miles with the 1st service coming in at 16,000 miles

With lots of "wizz bang" extras such as Cruise Control, Parking Radar, Winter Pack etc:- this one is slightly heavier than the standard model, so to make up for it, I had it "tuning box" chipped to 197 BHP .... nice :->>>

OK. It didn't seem to have the build quality of the previous MK4 (Flexible bodywork, rattles & obvious quality issues with finishing the job in the factory correctly - VW take note!!), the fuel economy not quite as impressive (50mpg on a good day), new clutch required at 48000 miles (a common problem with the 150BHP and more pronounced with the 197BHP) but .... a lot of fun driving!!!

This is Adrians ScrapBook Car Page 9 - Like a home web site but different Here you will find details of my VW Golf TDi 170. You will see this VW golf is of the type TDi representing VW Turbo Diesel.
