right i have a problem here

i was told the GT TDI i am looking at was a 115bhp PD model

however when i look on the parkers price guide it only lists a 110bhp GT TDI for that year

is this correct? and how do you check what one it is?

What year is the car, also can tell by the sticker in the boot and in the engine bay, I think the 115 is 81kw. Also the 115pds are 6 speed.

Look for the amount of kilowatts on the data sticker under the boot carpet. A GT TDI 130 is 96 kw so a 110 or a 115 will be slightly less than that. I think that the 115 has a 6 speed box and the 110 a 5, I am not sure on this though.

Yep, mines a 115 on a 51 plate, the guides stop pricing them at Y-reg but mine was registered 7th Sept 2001 after being in the dealers showroom for 2 months at ?18,500!! (Cancelled order, the lad wanted a 5dr & a 3dr turned up). It cost so much as it came fully loaded. A manger at my workplace bought it after watching it sit in the dealers for ?17,800, then a year later he got a company car..so he was keen to sell it at 20 months old.

It's a rare one if its a 51-plate 115, but as Paul says, if they sat around for long enough at the dealers they do exist.

Most 51-plates are 130's though.

Mine is a July '01 115PD (Y-plate). The data sticker in the spare wheel well will say 85kW for a 115, and the brake calipers will have FS-III engraved on them.

Most 115's are 6-speed but 5-speed was an option (god knows why) so there are some 5-spd 115's that exist. However there are no 6-spd 110's.

Good luck in your search mate.

Just to confuse things further VW re-introduced the 110TDI in June 2001 for @4 months. This issue seems to be a common problem. I went to look at a Golf that a mate had just test driven at a VW dealer. The salesman told him it was a 115TDI. Car was on an Sept 2000/X plate but had a 5 speed box and no ASR. This made me think it was a 110TDI, saleman stuck to his guns for 1/2 hour until his manager advised it was actually a 110TDI. Yet another example of a c**p salesman.

Right i have a 110 tdi the sticker in the back says 81kw so defo a 110, but as Stevoraith says my brake calipers have FS-III ? so that would make you think it was a 115! Confusing or what!
