    Default i know diesels not for everyone

    but you gotta admit, the 150 cdti is hell of an engine! only had my sri four days but im really impressed. my best mate at work has a seat leon 180t (not the quickest motor in the world i know but it aint no slouch) and we managed to both be at the same set of lights on the way to work this morning ;-)
    i wouldnt have been able to overtake him of course, but ...he didnt get away talking a few car lengths upto about 80. when he got to work he said that he was giving it all he got as well. best thing is while his fuel light came on just as he pulled in to work, my trip computer still says ive got over 400 miles range left and ive done 150 miles out of this tank so far

    few months to get used to the power then it'll be caterman time!

    I love diesels, and thats a smashing motor you have. The range from a tank is great, shame the price to fill it is going up and up.

    once you get the caterman on it, it'll be like a totally different engine!

    It is one hell of an engine. I was laughing like a kid the first time I booted my old one having driven it like a nun up to 599 miles.

    Just a shame a number of them appear to be rather fragile.

    isn't it just...... if they made them out of better components it'd be a fantastic engine.
