To confuse matters, they've used at least two 2.0 16v petrol engines. The original is the 140bhp IDE but they replaced it with another one that not only has 5bhp less, but which also hits its torque peak higher up the rev band.

I'm not sure when the changeover happened, but I have an 02 plater with the 140bhp engine and a colleague got a 52 plater with the 135.

I'm not sure why this downgrade occurred. It may have been reliability issues with the IDE (if mine's anything to go by, this could well be it) or it may just have been to make the 2.0T look more attractive.
