Trying to convert a friend of mine to the ZT crowd...
We are going to see two 2003 Zt's
One is a ZT 1.8T with about 55,000 Miles on the clock retailing about £4000
The other is a 190 with 82,000 Miles on the clock hitting in at £3000
The 190 has leather / alcantara combo so is a wee bit higer spec.
Other than that were stumped as to what to go for!
I know about the 1.8T failings more since I had the TF. How does the KV6 hold up milage ways? I Reckon the car will have an 18 Month keeping period and will cover about 20,000
Will the 190 see 100k easily or would he have to budget for some big bills?
what are good bargaining chips when dealing with these. Any crazy Service possibilities to look out for?
Any help appreciated. The KV6 would be the preference but looking for affordable fun motoring the 160 is equally as tempting!
Well, you know what the chances of HGF on the 1.8 are, whereas the V6 is very unlikley. Personally I'd have the 190 anyway, but check the obvious of a leaking thermostat housing and of course the belts will need doing, just due to age as well as nearly there for mileage, unless you have proof that they have been done of course!
Other than that it's down to condition and personal choice, but as I say I'd go with the 190 anyway.
