    Wouldn't you rather buy the facelift version? I think that is worth the extra money . I drive a 1.9TDI, which I think is a great engine, you've got a lot of torque and it's really reliable. But I don't know how the tax system for diesels is in your country.

    You can read alot in the faq threads as mentioned before, but I think the biggest issues are rust on the roof and on the bottem of the doors.
