    Not driven a T but with about 20 more bhp and loads more tuning options I know which one I would go for given the choice again!

    What he just said

    I know I own a 2.0T, but it really is a no-brainer. MPG is actually possibly better, or near as dammit the same, and the performance difference is more than noticeable. I've driven the 2.2 and my 2.0T back to back and I noticed the difference - although my 2.0T was remapped so slightly unfair comparison. But even with the 2.0T in standard, you'll notice a good difference.

    Also, if you were looking to up the performance even more, the 2.0T has remap options, the 2.2 is very limited in what you can do and it's lots of ££££

    Taking into account what others have said about their 2.2's compared with my 2.0T, I agree entirely with Duncan

    Well, about 173 horses actually!

    With not having the turbo it's one less thing to go wrong, but I haven't heard of any general problems with them on this car - as long as you look after them i.e. regular oil changes.

    Other than that, the 2.2. may have a lower insurance group(?) if that is a factor. I'm not sure what group it is without looking it up.

    The 2.2 is a good strong engine and very, very reliable, motorway driving is a pleasure with very good legs.
    EDIT Group 11 I think.

    I was considering a 2.2 to replace my 1.8 Active, as it seemed a logical 'next step up', but I found the 2.0T I have now, and was and still am smitten.

    Given the minimal difference in fuel and running costs, and the noticeable difference in performance, and the fact that the 2.0T is insurance group 12 as opposed to 11 for the 2.2, with the 2.0T you get 'more bang for your bucks'.
