I drove the 2L 156 (old model) today when I was down in Cork.
Very impressive. Loads of power in 3rd and 4th compared to my wimpy 1.6.
Anyway; the dealer said he would sell it to me if I part exhanged my own 1.6. Both are 02, mine has 4k miles, the dealers only 2k miles. Both only have 15" alloys, and no sports packs. But the 2l had aircon, rear elec. windows and a sunroof.
The dealer wanted 7.5K Euro !!! Oh...and his dashboard rattles, the seat springs were dodgy, scratches around the door handles, and all over the boot, and lot's of stone chips. My own car is scratch free.
I'll probably stick with what I have, as I can't afford to change really. But I sure hope they fix my problems this Thurs. or I'm just giving up on cars.
