    Default 53 elegance petrol compared to 56 cdti sri

    the power is totaly fantasic , however i cant believe the cut backs vx has made , i know an elegance is simalar to a design now, but what you make up for in power you lose in spec ie

    suglasses holder

    rear view map lights

    auto dip mirror

    x2 iluminated visors

    rear electric windows

    rear heat blower

    auto wind screen wipers

    front map reading lights

    sure there is more , but the best thing is the change over from a 1.8 petrol to a cdti 150 im happy to lose all these as there is no comparasin at all the car goes like ****

    The 1.8 would have been the older engine with 125 bhp which is too slow for the size of the car. The newer VVTi has 140 bhp, but yeah, 150 CDTi is quick

    Then the 1.9 starts to self destruct faster and the wallet starts to empty..
