My brother has a 97 1.8 T Sport and I have to give him credit as it is an awesome all rounder, both in performance and economy. Braking is superior, and only downfall is that the rear leather seats are extremely small and hugely uncomfortable. Horrendous on long journies, so remember to take a cushion.

I don't agree with them being strong performers... In Australia, we have commodores and I own a 1987 one (100% stock), and I raced my friend who owns a 1.8t A4 and beat him like 20 times! Id say they are slow - my car isn't any Ferrari either. It probably does 0-100km/h in about 9 seconds, and it's an auto!
