I'm also not sure what engine to go for? I like what i hear about the 1.5 dci diesel's, so i'm prob gonna look for a 80 brake version? What about the 1.2 16v petrol version, they seem very readly available but will it have enough poke to cope with a bit of motorway driving too?

Thanks for all your help in advance

Bit of a change!

Until recently I owned a 1.2 16v and I think it's perfectly suited to the car. Great away from the lights and the gearing gives it reasonable acceleration at 70.
Quiet enough at 80 and still feels responsive at 90.

Really don't know anything about the dci.

Currently in Eeeps's garage:
2011 Clio III dCi 88 Dynamique and 2016 CitroŽn Grand C4 Picasso Exclusive+ EAT6 2.0 BlueHDi
