    Default Which Model??

    I currently have a 2.2 SRi on an 03 plate and will be looking to upgrade early next year.
    I would like to get a newer vec as i find them comfortable, well equiped and good value for money but i am unsure which model to go for??, any advice appreciated.
    Since i got mine there are plenty more options available, i still want something sporty and fairly quick??
    I will have upto £12k available.
    Thanks

    Go all the way and get either a 3.2v6 or a 30cdti, you will not regret it,

    Bigger is beautiful.....

    Go for the highest spec you can get..the softer suspension of the elite can be sorted, but adding other interior options can be expensive..

    There are some very good reports from the guys who have the 1.9 ctdi,s I have never been in one so I can not coment on them, no doubt one of the owners will be along to vouch for them, cheaper to run than a 3.3v6 or a 3.0cdti though.

    They are great, but a few folk on here have had problems, so make sure it's got VX warranty cover..

    the 19 diesel will give you 50+mpg and a great driving experience, the 3 ltr will be closer to 35MPG but with bags of power...

    we've actually got quite a range of Vec's in our family now and if i bought another i may be tempted to get an oil burner..we've got the 150 CDTi and it is quick, but not quite the cruiser or bruiser that the 3.2 v6 is...

    try a 3ltr v6 diesel..should tick all your boxes..
