Hi Everyone

I'm brand new here, owned a Velociti 1.4 and jetta 1.4tsi.

Need help and advise please, Looking to buy a 2004 mk5 1.9tdi 5speed with 92000km on the clock. Selling for 85k.

It seems to have a full service history with Vw braamfontein as I called them to confirm.

Reason I'm buying this is because I am moving to cpt and was looking for a cheap and reliable run around with decent fuel consumption and in good nick. I'm a Vw fan by default so I'm not interested in anything else. Growing up a few friends of mine loved their polo 1.9tdis so i thought its an option.

My questions are

1. Worth buying?
2. What should I look out for?
3. Is it the most reliable option?

Any advice would be appreciated. I'm going to see the car on Thursday, it has cream leather with the wood finish on doors and gear knob.

Also, is an old car like this worth a remap for better fuep consumption? I'm not too worried about the speed.

Thanks guys and girls!
