i've never had a 200. But the 1.8t motor, if well maintained ( they  
could sludge) is really an excellent power plant. fairly efficient,  
good torque curve, nice.  Trade-off: its a slightly smaller car than  
the 200. But its also about a decade newer.

I'd get a 1.8t, avant, sport suspension if possible and ONLY a 5-sp.

Dunno the mileage. But i could get hgih 20s, touching 30, on less  
sountainous roads in my 2.7L, twin turbo, S4. So you should break 30.

now i get 15 in an s6 avant. And dont mind.
