    Default Test Drive Booked

    Afternoon all.. good to see everyone back after a bit of a technical wobble over the weekend. I'm after the benefit of your cumulative experience to help me get the most out of an up and coming test drive I've got.

    To set the scene, I'm currently running a privately owned 3.2 Elite estate on a '53 - and very happy I am with it to. The way the car scheme at work is structured means that theres a number of fairly compelling reasons to opt in, and I've decided not to join the drivers of A4 TDi avants, Passat TDi, 320d estate, V50 estate etc.. but instead stick with a Veccy C. Although a 3.2 petrol is technically possible, the tax implications are crippling, and so its the 150 CDTi, (estate), I'd be planning on, in either Elite+Upgrade pack or SRi XP+Nav guises. I've got a SRi nav coming next week for a 3 day run around prior to making a decision, which brings me to my point..

    I'd be keen to hear of any "this has changed, check it out" type bits of advice with regard to going from a '53 to an '06 model. Positive and negatives welcome in equal measure. I've got a 170 mile trip in my diary for one of the days I've got it and so am looking forward to seeing how the derv powertrain compares to the petrol one. I've picked up on the fiddling with specs that VX have done, but I'd be very grateful for any input at all that will help me get the most out of the 3 days I've got with the car.

    Thanks alot fellas / ladies

    I'm sure owners of SRis will soon tell you of the little bits that disappeared over the years, then made a partial comeback on the facelift model.

    One way to get all the info, is to have a look at this thread. Then you can print it all off and compare everything to your heart's content!
