On another subject, sid mentioned pulling away from a vw tdi. I can only imagine the tdi driver wasnt trying.
Ive a 130 bora, and have just changed the wifes 110 octaviafor a 1.8 tdi cmax. and there not much in it as regards performance.
I'd never knock the vw, especially for quality. I only hope the C max will be as good when its on 98k, and as reliable getting there. Im optimistic though.
