Is he the one that looks nothing like Paul and Barry, I thought the only other brother was the one that always gets mad with them when they screw up.

Err anyway watch out on a VAG 1.9 TDi older skool lump. I have mates who have had them - Audi, VW and Seat. With turbo problems... A bit co-incidental that they all have, the Seat was worse, 3 turbos in 2 years iirc

The Vauxhall Cavalier - one of the safest cars you'll bump into

Oh, and that age, keep clear of the Golf iirc

Audi A3 all the way for me

It has a little more road presance and as far as I know slightly better residuals.

Check the servicing costs between the 2 and schedules as some dervs need mmore regular servicing
