    Yeah the 140ps.

    Fleet services supplied it Byron.

    Is usually a like for like, but they didnt have one of the same class as the astra, so i went mental saying that i needed car and the guy said is a passat ok, i said yes and the rest as they say is history

    But will you want to give it back? Had trouble giving up my VW, feels like a different class to the VX, especially the interior

    Very nice cars I ran one for a bit sure it was the SE version. Handling was very impressive and the 140 version pulled well although not as well as a 1.9CDTI

    Aye but a Mk4 Borat isn't in the same class as a new Passat though, Brett. It's like comparing a Mk4 Astra with a Vectra C.

    One of the girls at work had two Passats, then her hubby decided she needed a BMW. He bought her a 320d M-Sport (E90), and she hates it. Oh, and the turbo died at 32k in the Beemer too.
