Nice sound!!! quite agree, the 1.8Ts are most certainly more 'tuneable', obviously depends on the individual. My V5 is 3 years old and standard, sounds lovely and at 170bhp delivers 'more than enough power' smoothly. Like everything else once youve sampled power you want more ... I also like the feeling of having a V5 badge stuck to the front/rear instead of the more common T (no offence intended to the T owners)My ONLY quirk is that maybe another subtle difference,to the T in appearance would have been better but hey thats VW BUY ONE!!
Be careful if it's an automatic - the motors great but the gearbox belongs to a grannie. It wants to get into 5th gear as soon as possible (within 2o metres of traffic lights) so it can give some fuel economy perhaps. But it feels terrible - we have had it back twice to the dealer and they can't do anything about it. So we now drive (in town) in 4th and only go into drive on the motorway.
