    Mk4 Golf GT TDi

    Looking at Golfs at the minute, as I'm on a bit of a downer with the Coupe at present and am hankering for a few more MPG, plus a car I can just drive/enjoy without thinking about all the things I need to do to it.

    Found one on ebay, here that looks reasonably tidy, although the lexarse lights and chavtastic exhaust makes me think it needs a proper looking at to check the extent of the thrashing it's probably had.

    anyway, what are people's thoughts and experiences on the GT TDi's?

    what are the differences between the 115bhp and 110bhp versions (no-one say 5bhp please, you'll get a virtual-slap ) too?

    sorry for all the questions, I just know there's a few golf owners on here, and I haven't found a golf forum I like the layout of yet so don't spend too long on them

    All the mk4's I've looked at, the 1.9 GT TDI's are either 110 or 115. Petrol GTi is 150bhp.

    I thought the GT TDI's could come in 110, 115, 130 or 150 form?

    Was looking at 130s myself as have heard positive things about them. Same for 110s really, but if you can stretch a bit further then why not.

    I'd be put off the motor for the reasons you gave personally, but you never know, it could be spot on for all we know.

    Tried the golfgtiforum?

    well not seen the 130 or 150 bhp versions in a mk4, but I'd like to see if there were any, and if they were in my budget.

    as for the golfgtiforum, well no I haven't. only tried uk-markivs.net and a couple of other general VAG forums. will have to go have a nose about

    seriously could have sworn the gt tdi is 150bhp? and standard tdi's come in 110bhp 115bhp and 130bhp!
    either way i have heard very few bad words about the golfs in general and even fewer about the diesel ones!
    the one your looking at i would personally stay away from! it not as if it a rare car and ya not gunna find another one!

    was told on the golf forum i mentioned earlier that you can tell by some plate in the boot what version it is, or umm, something in the engine bay, i forget what. Probably another plate or something. Gives the power in kw IIRC & from this you can tell what version of GT TDI it is.

    My mrs has a GT TDI 130 and it is absolutely amazing!!!
    Never really gets below 45mpg even when I drive it and is very surprising!
    With the massive amounts of torque and the 6 speed box it isnt the fastest car off the line but for overtaking and those sudden boosts you need it will leave alot of petrol cars behind it.
    My last car was a 200bhp Corrado VR6 and tbh going thru the gears while the VR needed to get to 4000 rpm to get into the power curve the TDI was right on my ass, wasnt until mine came onto cam higher up that I pulled away.

    Get a 130, they are the pick of the bunch, the 150's are more prone to turbo problems and clutch problems.

    They can also be massively tuned, if you add a bigger turbo, FMIC, exhaust and remap to a 130 (dont forget an uprated clutch) it would be a R32 beater and still give great mpg.
