I'm not a regular poster, but AOC members have been extremely helpful in the past, so I'm here again.
I currently have a Astra G (05 Plate) with a 14XE engine, having done 50k miles. My employer has recently relocated me, and pending restructure, I will potentially be doing (for me) a great many miles per year - 20k/pa give or take.
I'm delighted with my car as it is, and don't really want to change it. However, the engine is on the gutless side, and woeful when it comes to fuel economy when hammering down a motorway.
I thought about changing the engine to a 120/150hp 1.9CTDI engine.
Is this possible? Or would it be that much of an expensive ballache that it would be better to chop mine in for a newer car?
TIA for any advice.
