A bit of a derv hater?? Just a bit Nev? Would never have guessed.....
Having had a 1.9jtdm for nearly 2 years I would agree that is a pretty decent engine in the 159, especially if it has been tuned a little.
The 2.0jtdm is supposed to be a better, more economical unit, but the reports on here with mpg seem to disagree with that.
The torque of the lower bhp version is pretty good, but I would worry that the weight/bhp combination would let the car down.
I didn't realise the Ti was allowed to be mated with such a low power engine! The 170bhp would be the route I would take. Otherwise it really would be a sheep in wolves clothing....
Just my thoughts. Great car by the way!
