    Will have to have look at both then!

    Now I've got "used" to driving a quick diesel, I'm actually enjoying it.
    You can make damn good progress if you stay strictly in "the zone"

    Have to agree - keep mine between 1500 and 2500 and the speed limit comes up terribly fast, and I'm just running 100hp/170lb-ft.

    Sitting at motorway speeds at less than 3000rpm is nice too.

    Shocking, vehicle racism! You'd soon complain if we started a Petrol only forum
