I'm pretty sure the 1.8 engines were there as some kind of "tax relief" for reps etc. I think they used to be quite highly taxed on 2.0 Ltr engines, but didn't want the lower powered 1.6 option. Hence some manafacturers offered the 1.8 engines.
I'm sure someone else will happen along soon and blow my theory right oot the water


I think I have CDO. It's like OCD, but with ALL THE LETTERS IN THE RIGHT ORDER
