Re: Let's talk JTDms......
I had a new 1.9 diesel for a week with only 200 miles on the clock. I was initially disappointed that the car didn't seem to have the sudden surge of torque that I'm used to having driven VW/Audi and BMW diesels for the last 5 years. However, the car was deceptively quick and I found myself doing 85 on the motorway before I knew it.
In addition, I clocked up 800 miles during the week that I had the car and within that time the performance and economy were already improving.
I'm sure that the 2.4 sounds better and the extra tailpipe does improve the look of the car, but perhaps a remapped 1.9 would give you similar performance whilst preserving some of the economy advantage, and at a lower price.
