    Default 2.2DTi or 1.9CDTi...?

    Hi All,

    I'm considering selling my (much loved) 3.2 GSi as I will be on the motorway a whole lot more soon with work.

    I've got over the "but it's a diesel" issues in my mind (largely because of very positive posts in here!) and have my sights firmly set on either a 1.9CDTi or 2.2DTi.

    Problem is I have absolutely no experience of diesels or either of these two cars!

    I've had Astra's (GTE, SRi and GSi), an Omega (2.6 CDX), Carlton, a Cav and Vectra's for years and want another Vx. I like upgrading my cars in terms of software and cosmetics but I just don't know if one of the deisel options gives me more upgrade options under the bonnet than another?

    Whichever I jump for I'll have to keep it for a few years so any advice would be gratefully received?!

    Default diesles

    I went from a 2.5 v6 sri Veccy B to a 2.2 sri dti Veccy B

    Got the diesel chipped, and found the performance was roughly similar to the v6 but instead of 300 miles to a tank, i got 550

    Since I changed to the 1.9cdti Vec C, which has a tuning box, the performance is better than the old V6 and the economy is now 600 miles/tank

    Turbo diesels are much easier to tweak than n/asp petrols IMHO

    The CDTi (150) definitely has the edge on performance and is easier and cheaper to mod too!!

    1.9 CDTi.

    My feelings on the 2.2 are well documented, so far, my 1.9 has been a saint by comparison!

    :-) I'm spotting a trend! Sounds like the 1.9CDTi 150 is the way to go... thanks for the advice guys, really appreciate it.

    For me, the 1.9 CDTi (150) in complete standard form is more than suffice in the power department and day to day running economy is good. Although, reading through posts on this forum, there are known issues but what car is perfect?
    I would go for another.
