    The Coupe is being chopped in soon.... CDTi 120 or 150?

    The time has come.. had it for 4 years now and had "the itch" for a few months now.

    I am leaning towards a 57 ish 5 door Astra diesel almost certainly with the Exterior Pack...

    Fancy either Black or Peacock (although not seen many about) but cant decide if the 120 would do, or just get the 150. Insurance is neither here nor there.. although interesting the 150 is cheaper tax for those registered after 1st Jan 08

    For those who have actually driven both, is there much in it day to day? Are all the 120bhp the 6 speed box? Not fussed about 0-60 difference, more the real life, on the road performance differance.

    Finally, would you go for an SRi or a design and why?

    ps I will be retro fitting the Cruise so not fussed about that being a diff!

    Cheers Guys!

    The 150 is a far better engine, even in standard trim pulls hard all the way to the red line.

    Design has the half leathers, auto wipers and lights, all the little creature comforts. Plus they're generally a grand cheaper on the forecourt compared to the SRi. Mechanically identical too.
