The 90bhp HDi offers horrible acceleration. On the Top Gear site where you can describe a car in 5 words or less, someone's comment was More Power In A Fart. Do you really want to drive a 1.5-ton car with 90bhp? I did in my first car, a Xantia, and although the handling was nice the car was too damn slow! It turns every busy roundabout into a life-or-death situation. And why would you want to spend ?600 giving it the same performance as a standard 2.2?

The 110bhp is much better and easier to get hold of, but for my money the 136bhp HDi is the dog's danglies; it can match a 2.0 turbo and returns twice the mpg (supposedly). What better combination of power and cost-efficiency can you think of, except for a Seat Leon Cupra TDi.

I agree on the seats, and I've never been keen on 406's in black, white or matt red.

That's a bugger with the one in Bath. Not having the best of luck lately. Never mind, as Tony Blair's favourite song goes, Things can only get better...

(Paying £80 on a car that you don't want must've stung a bit too)

Supa, the next time I buy a car YOU are definately coming with me :cheesy:

You must have more bargaining power than Tesco's vs Dairy Farmer.

I, on the other hand am typically English when buying and tend to 'agree' on a nice little price that everyone is happy with, seller happy, me happy, everything is nice........until I find out it was a shitter :P and should have noticed this, and that, and this....... :cry:

I'm sure would have made more than £60 standing on street corners. :)
