    Default Cdti 150 / 120 ?!?

    Hia all,

    Quick query, still looking to by a nev Vec C, diesel....

    Have found a few lovely examples described as a 150 but when
    pricing up insurance, they think its a 120!!! Have also done a check
    and again, came back as a 120!

    Is there a physical difference between the two engines or that one just
    produces more power ?

    If there are any differences, i wonder if anyone has a photo of them ??

    Thankyou all,
    Mark

    Great thankyou - Thats bad, ive looked and checked others and only a few come out by insurance companies as 150's and they do infact have the red ti !!

    Seems to be pick and mix with a fancy red badge to me !!! lol

    So the il filler is on the right side of the block on a 150 and left for a 120 ?

    There is a pretty useful search function which usually brings up previous posts on similar issues. See my post to yesterday's similar question: http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...t=67608&page=2

    There are links to pics in the How 2 section.
