    Change of car maybe Sport hatch CDTI

    I currently have a 2003 2.2 sri hatchback but i do nearly 500miles a week and been looking at the great deals you can get the 1.9 16V CDTi SRi (150ps) 3d with (Exterior Pack) for at the moment.

    Firstly what is the (Exterior Pack) is this a irmsher styling pack?

    Secondly before i have a test drive what are these like compared to my 2.2, will it feel the same (power Wise) ?

    Any view comments would be helpful.

    eing a diesel it should offer up more torque lower down the rev range than your 2.2.

    Isnt the exterior pack the VXR kit?

    One little black box under the bonnet will take the 150 1.9 from 150bhp/315Nm to 195bhp and 366Nm.

    Amazing what you can do with a FIAT engine!

    My tip is buy it from DC Cook when it's a year old. You will save on average Ł6,500 off the new price on any mid range Astra. Beat the depreciation!
