    Default 1.9CDTi - 1.8VVTi comparison

    Well on Friday I turned up to Enterprise car rental in Exeter as I had booked a hire car for the weekend. My wife was busy this weekend and neede the Vectra, and I didnt fancy 400+ miles in my '93 Astra!
    £48 for an Astra/Focus from Friday to Monday.
    Turned up and was asked "do you mind if we give you a free upgrade?"
    Obviously I didn't mind so went from a 1.6 Astra to a 1.9CDti Vectra Elite!!

    So having my VVTi as a daily drive I had a good chance to drive the CDTi.
    Well.. what can I say...WOW. The diesel pulls like a train, has given 50MPG and surprised a few other car drivers as I've left them behind.
    Definetly a quicker car then the VVTi, but overall the SRI set-up (mine) chassis wise is a lot nicer than the Elite. Although the heated leather seats are lovely...nice & warm!

    So my next drive's a 150CDTi SRi then!

    The seats are great aint they? I leave em on all year round. I hate driving in my coat, so i especially appreciate them in winter. Best bit is when you have to get out for petrol etc, get back in and mmmmmmmmmmm. So nice i fitted them in the back as well, i occasionally get my girlfriend to drive while i sit in the back and pretend i'm someone important. Actually whats happening is her mother is in the front passenger seat, but i overlook that part....

    Earplugs?

    I want to hear a V6 derv, maybe it sounds a little better, but the 4pot is still too clattery for my liking.
