    Default Do I? Don't I?

    Currently got a 2.2 six 03 plate got the chance to get a 1.8 sri, question is do I both same miles same age only difference is models and colour wheel size etc? Obvioulsy tax will be cheaper, slightly better mpg.
    Might only cost me few 100 in buying and selling, so cheaper than upspecing mine to SRI

    Thoughts?

    Drive a 1.8 first mate and see if you can live with the drop in power - it might be more than you're expecting...

    Sorry to be so blunt about the saloon

    Seems a fair price to me at 67k if genuine miles and decent colour, not worth the cash or time converting yours to sri spec IMO.

    The 2.2 non-direct are usually valued less than the 1.8's i find.

    I found the 1.8's were a little less when i was looking for mine. I was tempted by one before i got the 2.2 because it was a £200 cheaper and less miles but didnt bother after driving it. I find my 2.2 a little under powered. I couldnt cope with a 1.8. Fine when there up to speed. Its just painfull getting there.
    But each to there own
