Has anyone driven these back to back .As you can see from my signature I already have the 180 but wondered if anyone has driven both. As much as I enjoy the car I just find it lacking in overall grunt. Thought it was me but a friend of mine drove it and said the same, not that its slow just dosent' give you confidence for overtakes. Maybe I've got used to the 3.0 diesels at work. :roll:

Compared it to a 190 diesel, not the petrol. The 240 is much more grunty at low revs, which makes the car feel a lot more responsive, and therefore more relaxing and confidence inspiring when gunning it. Still a rock-chewing taxi engine though, but the well run in one I drove was pretty refined. Our one needs a lot more running in yet.

I can't imagine there's much difference between the 180tsi and 190tdi. If I decide to change it will probably be for ex demo anyway. Can't be arsed with the massive wait and not that keen o0n the new infotainment system looks.
