    Default 1.9 CDTI, Wow!

    Currently enjoying my first real experience of the 120hp 1.9 CDTi engine, albeit in a Zafira. All I can say is Wow!

    Even as standard it goes like a scalded cat, it pulls in 6th and sounds Quite refined to me.

    If Vx don't fix mine this time, I think I'll be talking about swapping to a newer 150 CDTi. I don't think I'll be needing the V6 after all!

    Oh, and despite looking like I have Catholic ideas towards birth control, I am really enjoying tearing around in the Zafira, even if it is only the club model. I may even be tempted by an Astra........

    I took my mate out today, he has a bmw 530, his jaw hit the floor at how powerful & smooth my vec is.

    He is genuinely shocked at how fiercely it pulls.
