    Question Poss change to diesel

    I thinking of getting an Astra diesel and after some advice from said owners. I'll probably have to sell my ACT for said purchase.

    Which is the best engine and trim to go for, I know it's not going to be on par with my turbo but would still like to have something with good poke and trim level.

    Would like a Mk5 as they've got the 150bhp engine

    Any advice appreciated and thanks in advance

    Only testing the water really at the mo. the move to the diesel is due to work mileage alone(21500) the saving between running the 2 cars over a year is approx £1200 in fuel alone.

    Plus Fee has said if I sell the ACT and get a diesel I can also have a 2 seater sports car.

    I know what I'm after it has to be a 1.9 CDTi(150) Sri sporthatch in black
