    Welcome to the club Carl,

    for the z18xe Coupe ,

    130 mph,

    Max engine output 92kw at 5600rpm

    170Nm Torque at 3800rpm

    can run on fuel from 91 Ron up to 98 Ron

    CO2 182g/km

    Kerbweight, which you will need if lowering 1270 manual without aircon

    1290 manual with aircon,

    fuel consumption is in g/km so doesn't make alot of sense,

    urban 10.7-11.7

    extra-urban 5.8-6.3

    combined 7.6-8.3,

    Hope this helps

    im going to give my very unbaised opionion..... lol. The Coupe is a great car, fuel use for the 1.8 isn't to bad really, suits me fine, when driven hard can and will drink fuel like anything will. Standard suspension is like driving a boat its defo not the best in the world, but nothing that a set of springs or full kit can't sort out.

    I have had 2 coupes a 2.2 & now a turbo. The seats in the SE1/2 are comfier than the standard cloth ones in normal coupes. Handling is ok as long as dropped by 35mm or more. Consumption is not the best by any means. On a 1.8 you will probably see 33 mpg mixed driving.

    Ive got the older 1.8 engine and even though its only 113bhp i prefer it more to the newer 1.8- mainly cos its not got that stupid flyby wire as that drives me mad lol

    Has stated before, they aint the best on fuel but thats like any car if you give it some stick.

    My MPG is poor tbh has the car does less than 6 miles a day and most the time i cant get out of 3rd

    Other than that i cant really fault my car other the oringinal owner decided to have the worst colour interior ever known lol
