    Default 150 CDTI pre face... Common but

    which colour would you say is most common? star silver? especially in the SRI...

    Thats the colour i'm after anyway, just got back from another car auction. missed out on one with only 47k on clock, full service and one owner. i only have £4400 (inc O/D ) in my account till next paid, went to 4450

    Missed out few days ago on same, but 67k. 3800, but it went through early and i was stuck in traffic ...

    But seems now i have the money, all the silver ones with decent milage are being kept hold of... tut...

    I really wanted a black one when I got mine but if a car comes in another colour and is cheap you have to decide how important colour is? Ultra blue has now grown on me

    I was dead set on a black SRI CDTi 150 - kept my eyes peeled and thats what I got

    Don't waver mate, if thats what you want, then make sure you get it.

    Yeah, i've always gone for black cars... but for some reason i prefer the vec C in standard silver, may go to black but i'm prepared to wait anyway... no rush...

    By the way you CDTI owners, never even test drove one and only really opting for the power output and MPG. but the flat spot under 2k i hear so much about. how soes that affect you round town cruising for example...

    I very rarely use motor ways. work is only a 15 mile round trip and its only 2 long dual carriageways. rest of time cars used for shopping and bobbing around town. based on this is the CDTI 150 a good choice, may look into the 2.2 as keep seeing loads of them if it takes another month...

    Doesn't bother me as mine doesn't have a flatspot.

    Its not "right" for them to have them, but it seems to affect most of the 150's out there. The CDTi's do need to have a thrash every now and again to keep them clear, so always doing town driving isn't the best to be honest. What about the 1.8 VVT..??

    i do hammer it down the dual carriage way to be honest so probably not a problem, and every now and again we all like to drive stupid dont we

    Think i'll stop looking for second best/option. will only regrett it. did it with last car. wrote off a astra mk4 sapphire black 1.8 sxi. wanted same, best i found out of months of searching was the diamond black 2.0 sri. better performance, but did look grey/blue in some light ...

    Hopefully i'll get a good one, as plan to run it into the ground once have it...
