Hi,thanks for the reply rich. Not quite for what ive heard. Some reviews (portuguese reviews) say it pulls better before 1750 rpm and its more linear to the red line, having that "roundness". doesnt have that "explosion" of the 170ps version. All cars are sold out, i have no chance to test it, and i really have to decide between the two versions in the next few days. Im choosing the manual gearbox, and it has some diferences in performance. if anyone has the 170 manual please help!
Barry, thats all i needed to hear. 143 it is. thank you very much. really really really apreciated!Hi,
we have the 143bhp model (just over 3000 miles old now) and find it fine for all types of driving. It's fast enough to get you out of trouble but not to get you stopped by the boys in blue. We recently went away with the kids and a very full boot and it still pulled fine it is also comfortable on the motorway, with hardly any noise and returns around 38-40 mpg based on a mixture of country lanes by our home, b roads and a roads.
Hope that helps
Hi markitos,hehhe, thanks a lot to you too jason. here is 3000 euro difference betweewn the two engines. it had a logical answer all along, but as i drive a golf IV 1.4 petrol 75 bhp i really wanted my new car to be fast!
now the hardest part...3-4 months minimum waiting time!! Yey!
thanks everyone for the precious help
