    Default My new 150 CDTI SRi

    at last, after months of debate with myself I committed myself to an 07 SRi Vecra. I used to have a VW Bora TDI 90BHP.
    I love the vectra...it's an awesome car and really easy on diesel too.
    Mine also has the optional sat nav with big colour screen. I think I've made good choice with Vectra..here were my alternatives:
    BMW 320d << too expensive
    Avensis D4D 2.2 << boring but well built
    Honda Accord CTDI <<lovely! but boot (only saloon) opening too small and estate is ugly
    Passat TDI 140 << very expensive, why though!?

    VECTRA Wins!!

    I travel about 25 miles to work every day (50 mile round trip). On monday morning a wee boy pulled up behind me in a GT TDI Golf. He had obviosuly been ill informed about the vectra, left him for dead but it was a good fight. the only thing is the turbo lag on the CDTI is pretty poor compared to the VW TDI but when you're up at 100mph the vectra is a real class act, pulling away!
    I have also put manners into a BMW 1 series 120d << man but it was close...i dunno what he had bhp wise but i was sweating!

    andwat,

    Welcome

    The VW TDi's have a different setup on the turbos which virtually eliminates all lag. I had a Bora (130bhp Sport TDi) and it was no slouch at all. Mind, it was tinkered with.

    Good choice on the 150 SRi (I might be a smidge biased tho )
