so apparently both cars are belt driven,and if you don't mind me asking,how much does the belt change cost?(if it turns out to need changing)
and,what is the approx. fuel consumption of the 16v & the 12v?!
To be honest I want a car for daily commute,short distance & long distance driving but I want it to be immensely fun,more like bringing a smile anytime I drive it!
and well I'd like to take it to the track once in a couple of months or so!
Twinny needs a beltchage at 36k mile intervals, variator at twice that. With variator you are looking at £400 to have it done, without you'd be £250, maybe £300, depends where you go really.
The V6 I think has a 70k beltchange, again should cost you £250 to £300.
As for fuel, the V6 is quite thirsty if you drive it like you should but he twinny won't do much better since you the power is higher up the revs. Both would be fine for a daily commute. The V6 is a better long distance car & they tend to be a bit softer but the twinny is much more involving on the twisty stuff. Twinny is quicker of the corners, V6 quicker everywhere else (although it is marginal)
Both have different positives & negatives. I love the twinny & I am keeping it over the V6 but only since it was my 1st 155, if i wasnt so attatched to it I'd find it very difficult to choose.
But whatever you get, make sure it has been cared for in the past, they can be tempremental.
