    Adivce on a 1.9CDTi please

    weighing up options of a new car as ive got do start driving to work becuase of promotion and thinking a diesel (and a little less obvious car may be good)

    Looking at some 1.9CDTi 150 SRi on auto trader and just have a couple of questions, can someone give me and idea on basic spec for a 2005 (i know they change alot but a rough idea would be great, e.g sports button, TC ESP etc etc.
    Also i would want to get it mapped to 200bhp asap so not to feel too slow compared to mt ZLET, is a map from e.g regal the best way (£450) or is a tuning box a better option (cost?) and does anyone have a rough idea of 0-60 times when they are 200bhpish (just to compare to the ZLET)

    Thanks in advance,

    how many miles are you going to be doing a day andy ?
    on my vectra cdti i was doing 40 miles a day an it was not that good that was a 1,9cdti 150bhp

    why not just bung a LPG kit on the sri turbo or buy a VXR

    wont be doing loads, just knowing the turbo will get expensive to run for the daily use it will get, i dont want to "throw" money away on a LPG kit and cant afford a VXR (and a VXR would defeat the idea of a new car)

    Atm my car stays safely tucked away at home all day, but with my new job it will be parked up at the side of a road every day and will be used alot more also as ill now be a bank manager" think a slightly more sensible/professional car might get me taken a little more seriously when i go to meetings etc.

    Also having a new car would be nice, wanted one for quite a while tbh, and five doors would be a god spend alot of the time,

    beginning to look like im going to be getting on of these now, cant really decide between the design or the SRi, except i want the exterior pack so looks like a SRi is more likely, just struggling to find one local in my budget,

    can someone whos drove both or just has a clue tell me what difference i should expect from my Z20LET to a 1.9CDTi, (i will test drive one soon, but just wondered)

    Also any other advice of anything to look out for etc would be great,
