    It depends what the 1.8 is like when you give it some beans.

    VX petrol engines aren't exactly slow and haven't been over the years.

    The old Cavalier SRi 130 could easily see the wrong side of 135mph!

    I've got no experience of the 2.0 Dti, but there's only one way to find out!!

    much as I love diesels i would put money on the lighter more powerful car. Petrol engines rev higher, driven flat out they perform well. He will beat you easily IMO.

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI NAV XP

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 72K

    Default

    Non-VVT pre-facelift 1.8 petrol would beat a 2.0DTI Vectra 'C'. The same 1.8 engine is in the Astra, which is lighter and therefore quicker. 2.2DTI, now that would be more of a contest with the diesel gaining the upper hand IMO

    LOL, my farther could produce a speeding ticket for 138 MPH in a SRi 1.8 many many moons ago, and that was a pre 130 a C reg. Shows how times have changed, 2 week ban .

    C393 DWU, now that was a car, if I ever saw it I would buy it at the drop of a hat.
