Its supposed to be a 120, I think thats all that was available on an 03 but I could be wrong.

Sometimes it feesl reasonable, but other times its pretty gutless. it may be because I'm used to petrol turbos with more of everything. Although the diesel should feel rally torquey but it has nothing compared to my saab.

Its not a bad car tho, just a bit characterless, everything seems to work except the rear washwipe which is seized solid. How, i don't know as its supposed to mo0ve everytime the car gets put into rverse gear. The motor works on it, just the mechanical side doesn't!!

Car has 125k on now, but full dealer service history, one of the reasons I can't get my head around the RWW not working.

I think the car is working correctly power-wise because I wound it up on my own private test track a few weeks ago and achieved top speed pretty much bang on the book speed!! Quite impressed for a donky diesel.

It seems to have really lost some economy with the cold weather tho, but I expect that.

All in all its growing on me, I think I've just had a couple of bad experiences. I'm now used to locking it thro the back door but at least I can unlock with one of the keycards!
