I had a Lag II with the 1.6 and it was dreadful, so underpowered, when I got my dCi it felt like I was in a sports car, and the fuel economy was woaeful.

IMO the 1.6 shouldn't be in cars of that size.
Well to be fair the Touran we had was a 1.6 so that was no race car - anyway my T-Sport is my release in this respect!

We are hopefully only looking to keep the car for 6-months to a year as I am currently taking some time out to skill myself up before returning to the jobs market.
Currently in Markm49uk's garage:
2003 Toyota Yaris T-Sport 1.5 VVT, 2005 Grand Scenic 1.6 VVT
