    Default Entering in the Herts Corner!

    Hello

    On the purchase of a Veccy C SRI 150 CDti.

    Settling for a steel grey/blue, kind of colour (proper term for the colour?)

    56 plate, 66k miles. last serviced by Vx at 60k miles.

    I am leaving from a Mondeo Ghia X 130 Estate on 138000 miles. These have dual mass fly wheel weaknesses, sticking calipers, collapsing springs, and the car is now feeling a little saggy and heavy on its suspension. The leather and the electrics will be missed though.

    I understand the Veccy engine CDti is a Fiat derived engine. Still test drove a 120 and a 150 yesterday, and the torque and midrange in the 150 was georgeous and the handling sublime on the 17 inch wheels.

    Buying private, is there a buyers guide on here what to look out for?

    Engine : 2.0 DTI 100 bhp

    to the site,

    Looks like you've been doing a bit of homework anyway but if you have a good look round the site you'll get to know some of the common problems on the CDTI engine.

    DMF can be an issue at times along with EGR clogging and the odd spring going too but all in all most 150CDTI owners seem very happy and enjoy the power. If even the 150 doesn't have enough power for you then you can opt for a remap to be pushing 190bhp with a K&N pannel filter and airbox mod.

    Anyway! Hope you enjoy your car and the site.

    Bri.
