    Thinking of selling the CDTI vectra for astra GSI

    Keep thinking about selling the vec C CDTI 150 to get something petrol and a bit quicker.

    Always wanted a astra G GSI.

    Only thing holding me back is i do around 400-500 miles a week and thats one tank of diesel whereas it would be nearer 2 tanks of petrol. Although most of the miles I do are purely because i know i can drive anywhere and not worry about filling up. I think if i was to drive petrol again i would cut down my weekly mileage.

    Any thoughts guys?

    stick with the diesel would be the sensible choice if you use your car for long long regular journeys...but if you want fun miles buy the Gsi.

    If your even thinking about how much more its going to cost i think you know you shouldnt tbh.

    Keep with the Veccy and get it remapped, then your have 200bhp nearly anyway.

    people have said that a remapped cdti 150 engine would keep up with a standard GSI on the road? Any thoughts on that comment?

    Remapped your pushing 200Bhp and well over 400Nm i do believe.

    so plenty quick enough and your still keep good fuel economy!
