    Question Which diesel engine??

    Seeing as I'm not getting as much for my Astra Turbo I need to rethink which Vectra to get.

    I'm after very good fuel economy and would like some power for over taking, also realiabilty has to be a top priority.

    I know the 150bhp diesel is probably the best but I don't think my funds are going to stretch that far now.

    Thanks in advance

    I'd look for a 120 CDTi if your budget is limted. But there are more 150's about so you may find a 150 within budget.

    i have had a 2.2 dti sri i got for £2700 had it was really good quite quick and good on fuel (average 38mpg) . i now have the v6 cdti i got for £3900 VERY quick but not so good on fuel (average 32mpg) but i only got the v6 3 weeks ago and its been really crap weather so short journeys in lower gears might see a improvement as the weather gets better.

    Well made a decision on which Vectra engine. Went for a 2.2DTi SRi 130 Vectra b on a 51 plate. Only £1750 with T&T, not a Vec C as my budget wouldn't run to some of the prices I've seen them advertised for.

    Here's a taster New Vectra
