Depends on your budget I suppose. The 150 is more 'exclusive' with lowered suspension, different alloys etc but costs more. THe 130 is a good car, depends if you want the top of the range model or not (in that case it'd be the Anni anyway). The 130 is fast enough for me.
mmm agrees totally ...horses for courses...if u can afford a 150 have a 150...if u cant have a 130 and change littll bits like the alloys and things to make it more like a 150...im not gonna knock a 130 cos there a good car too ...
Never driven a 150 so can't really comment. I'd have bought one but didn't have the funds to justify it. If you get a 130 you could put the money towards 'personalising' it I suppose. If you want more 'oomph' you could always chip it. Both are good cars - you pays ya money etc. Let us know how you get on.
I have a 130 and it's a great car. Only thing i would say is that the 150's have a stronger turbo (apparently) as well as all the other bits (already metioned). So, if your thinking of a remap you can get more from a 150.
Depending on mileage - the TDIs should have their timing belts etc changed every 40k. Check the log book to confim it's been done if necessary. if it's close to 40k you could negotiate a suitable reduction in price (don't want to buy a car and pay ?300+ in the first year). Not much else apart from usual checks etc. The late MkIVs have all the quirks pretty much ironed out so you should be fine and hopefully still under manufacturers warranty.
