depends if its the 1.9d a.9td

66BHP = 1.9d
80BHP = 1.9TD

then they did an 888 special

think they werent selling as many as they thought so cave you some extras

most came with 2 captain chairs with armrests
up and over tail gate
rubber mat in the load bit

1.9td is 68bhp instandard dress:(, an 800 spesh is so as it has an 800kg max load capability, and specs vary slightly from what ive heard about others.

Yep, thats right
1.9td=68hp
2.5 non-intercooler(blue i)=88hp
2.5 intercooler(silver TDI badge)=102hp

I would try and hold out for a better deal , I picked up my 1.9td with 76k on the clock for 1950 , pretty good condidtion all round. Ive a feeling that it was a bit of a one off bargain though
