Right...after contemplating different cars (nearly went for an S3) i have decided i want to go for the GTTDI 150 for a few reasons.

I have found one nr me, 2002 with 22000, fvwsh, sat nav plus usual extras for 10.995.

Hopefully i will be goin to look at it tomorrow if its still there but want bit of info on anything i need to look out for cos hopefully this will be the one.

Thanks Matt

Yes, check for pulsing cooling fans when your aircon is on (search for
pulsing fans on the forum). Though if the temp is much bellow 5 degrees
the air con won't turn on, so testing it might need to wait. I'm sure
others will post with more advice. Sat nav sounds really nice, post
some pics up when you finally buy your car.

yeah i will mate...to me sat nav is a novelty. dont really go anywhere that would warrant it but may come in handy one day. I did read about pulsing fans somewhere earlier. Does the AC have to be on? Is it the interior blower fan that pulses?

Sold my S3 for a 150 GTTDI and very impressed so far - similar spec 22000K full VWSH although no Sat Nav from VW for ?11000

Paid a little extra for the piece of mind from VW in case anything goes wrong

So far all ok - should I be wary of any problems whilst its in warranty ?

No its the rad fans that pulse. The basic test is the turn on the
ac\air con. Look under the bonnet, the fans should spin to low speed.
If they spin to high speed for 30 seconds then to low then they are
broken! Its cheap to fix either. Look up anymacs post, or its in this
months VW driver magazine (technical letter section)
