    That will be the 150Bhp version on a W plate I believe. Try and find a later car for the 170Bhp version, slightly better economy and a much sweeter drive.

    I had a Passat with the 170bhp V5 motor... it was dead in there, but it might be better in the lighter Bora. I found it juicy as hell compared to (say) a 328i. On the plus side, it's a timing chain, so no belt to worry about. The 150 was a 10v engine, the 170 was 20v and allegedly breathed a lot better.

    Thirsty and not particularly quick given the engine size, nice enough cars though.

    go for the tdi much better than the v5 my mates had both and i had a tdi golf and my opinion of the v5s is overfuelled and underpowered
