    I know but same torque.

    Less tax and fuel

    But more power and 4x4.

    I'm tempted when they get to £7k on the used market

    I chose the V6 over the 1.9 due to the ability of this engine to cope better with high mileage and reliability
    I've not yet had any 4 cylinder engine last over 150K miles

    Never had one not. Dad has had a 2.2 dti with 250k and now 3 1.9s with 200k on.

    Fair enough they have had a couple flywheels and a manifold in the 150hp.

    But anyway just saying for the people who are interested

    Biturbo now listed in Auto Express. V6 days are numbered, I'm afraid, thanks to Euro 5 regulations. Why is it that VX/Opel can't get their emisssions down like Audi and BMW do?

    Yep, cars are much easier to 'scapegoat' than aeroplanes, ships, lorries and factories churning out god-knows-what. Car manufacturers are even being deterred from having visible tailpipes fitted as standard on their cars.

    Buddy ridiculous isn't it, I agree with the above and think they should target someone else for a bit.

    Any links to the new engine?
