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.
