    Default First drive in a CDTi 150

    But was an Astra SRi though.
    Now I know what you diesel guys are talking about!!! These engines are good - very good. Not sure how much quicker the Astra is compared with the Vectra but boy, it went very well. Turbo pulls very strong from 2k revs - and seems to come in quicker with the Sport switch on, that the Astra has.

    Wonder why they didn't fit the Sport switch to the Vectra SRi?

    because 75% of vecs are driven by sales reps who dont need a sport switch (and it keeps the price down that little bit more)

    The sports switch is fitted to most V6 CDTi's

    Mind you, on the Astra I driven, you cant have in on around town because it makes driving a little jerky. Because it sharpens the throttle response, and power is more "on" or "off".
