I find the 1.8 engine to be Ok, but a bit unrefined at certain points in the rev range. The low down torque can be lacking and careful use of the clutch and throttle are needed in some situations. Hovever overall for a big family car the 1.8 does extremly well, with no mech probs so far (I have had the car for a year now). I read your post on the K&N filter with intrest - do you need to inform your insurance co when fitting one? - I don't suppose it would make much difference as it is not a drastic mod?
