    Hello all
    I'm looking at investing in a 1.9 cdti vectra.
    Looking at the two engines, it would clearly be good to have a little more power. Do you loose much fuel efficiency for this? Any other differences between the two?
    Thanks
    George

    Edited to add: should I expect much price difference between the two?

    The 150's tend to be a little better I believe.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Check for Service history though, check for Cambelt Change if over 60k, check for DMF replacement, EGR, Swirl, etc.....all this could cost mega buck. Dont be afraid to have a ring around the dealers that have done the servicing. The 120 is meant to be more reliable although I found my old one to be a right nail!

    Good luck! !

    Excellent advice, thanks. I've seen a 150 that has done 65k and a 120 that has done 55k.
    Do both have the painful service at 60k?
    Is there a buyers guide anywhere I can look at?

    our 120 is superb, and with a remap you can get it a little better than a standard 150
