I might have to have one of them.

I think I'm starting to understand the phrase "old Pugs never die, they just get faster" :twisted:

Well I've just seen my 406 on the way home from work.

None of the people in it looked like the guy who bought it.

Set me off wondering if I did the right thing swapping it...

Have a drive in an old Hdi90, then see if you made the right choice. I think you have - its natural progression... :cheesy:

+1 You can't really fail to notice losing half your power and torque while gaining a host of squeaks, rattles and bangs.
