Re: My new 159 arrives soon - I'm as bad as Fraser!
No Fraser, i am sure you have been much less irritating than I have, my poor co-workers run and hide if cars come into the conversation!
dpat - 2.4 over 1.9
I am in the very lucky position of a generous car allowance so cost was not an over riding issue. I drove a 1.9 and a 2.4 and much enjoyed the extra grunt the 2.4 gave. I have a SAAB turbo so could not see how I would enjoy the 1.9 when used to 185 BHP. It was however a very nice drive, easily as much fun as the Passats and diesel saabs in our works fleet.
I also wanted Q-tronic which will benefit from a little extra power, driving mostly in west london traffic a manual car is becoming just too hard for everyday use.
