    Default CDTi 150 / 2.2 150

    Hi all,

    What differences would I notice, buying a CDTi 150 from my old
    Vectra B 2001 2.2 150 with 111,000 miles??

    What would it drive like, compared to the petrol ?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Diesel has far much more torque so will feel a lot quicker for a start .

    Much less gear changing on motorways to overtake, but less space on the rev counter before you have to change gear. No throttle needed to pull away. Much less frequent visits to pumps, but more money spent while being there...

    And the biggest issue IMO..... the noise, especially when stationary, or in slow traffic etc. In fairness the new ones are a little quieter, and even the vec diesels are almost silent once you get going. A very big plus, is the fact that most of the later vecs have a six speed box, while many of the basic petrol units still retain the 5 speed box.

    Yep, was looking into one a few months back now, I think around £10000 seems fair.

    Looking at the equivalent SRi's - Dont seem to be as well specced as my B, however the Sat Nav and colour screen thing will be nice.

    It should be a bit quicker tho right ?

    I've not driven a 150, but imagine they're pretty torquey compared to the old 2.2 150. I've provisionally sold my motor and am trying to decide between a 1.9 120, 1.9 150 and 2.2 Direct - decisions decisions!
