    Talking Vectra 2.2direct SRI or 1.9cdti 150ps?

    Alright peeps!!

    I'm thinking of changing my 04 astra sri 1.8 3door in black (with factory fitted irmscher stylepack!) for one of the above 'motorcrafts'! What are peoples views? and which one do you think would be the best - both similary powered, although the diesel I imagine would produce a much better MPG!?! Or keep the astra and save the money??!?

    Secondly, has anyone got a vectra and consider a swap?

    Ciao for now.

    CDTi by a long long way. LOTS of torque and you can get near on 200 horses for a few hundered pounds. Thats not to mention the miles better MPG

    Back in the day I used to own a 2.2 Direct on an 04-plate before they started penny pinching and cutting back on goodies.

    Really depends what you want the car for, go for the cdti if you rack up big miles as you'll save money in the long run on the better MPG. If you do normal miles go for the petrol.

    The 2.2 Direct is a very strong engine, bags of torque for a petrol and sounds fantastic with the twin pipe system (you only get a single pipe on the cdti).

    Take both of them for a spin back to back and see what you think. But both of them are cracking cars.

    My mate has got a twin piped 2.2direct and it drives and sounds like a dream - much smoother and faster than my 1.8 astra. I do approx 11000 miles a year, but I seem to be putting about £20 a week in mine nad imagine it would only get worse if I got a 2.2!! I love my astra, but just feel like a change to a bigger and more comfortable drive - after all, im 21 now!

    petrol 1 looks better with the twin exhausts an has a nicer soundin note to it but the diesel would beat it hands down...more torque an the fact that u can chip it an get better gains outta it

    Only the 2.0T and the 3.2V6 in the Vectra are close to a fettled 1.9-150.
