    Default Change to a gsi?

    Currently drive a 2003 03 1.8Sri with 80k
    should i be tempted by a 2002 52 3.2 Gsi with 68k for £4k advertised locally?

    I would hope i could get £4k for mine but id keep the VXR alloys of course and the headunit.

    What would people do?
    What mpg does a V6 return?

    i belive you will get low 20s to the gallon so it could be quite costly the fuel bills but plenty of power only you can make that final decsion m8

    Go for it!!

    MPG varies quite a bit depending on type or roads used, and how heavy you want your right foot to be. I get anything from 230 - 310 per tank.

    Other than the mpg, and tax hike, I think the 3.2 V6 is one of the greatest engines around. So smooth and powerful enough too, with a great sound.

    Well, depends doesnt it..having had a fuel sucker I am enjoying the economy at the moment. If you can afford the fuel and obviously the tax isnt an issue then it's down to you. I would question the price though, 4K seems a bit low.

    Don't expect that sort of figure for urban driving, that sort of usage gives me some of the worst consumption. The V6 loves to drink on stop/start driving, but free's up when able to cruise.
