Welcome to the forum.

The Lag 2 phase 2 is indeed an improvement over the older phase 1's and have so far proved to be far less troublesome.

I would go for the newer 2 litre engine(not IDE ) over the 1.8 any day,and to be honest I don't think that the difference in economy would be that noticeable.The engine in my earlier Lag 1 phase 2 is basically the same 1.8 16 valve unit,and it is seriously under powered and needs to be worked hard!.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
