About to join the Honda ranks with a 65 reg 1.8 petrol. Tried the 1.6dtec and really wanted to love it ( with that mpg I really tried!) But found the petrol version so smooth and relaxing to drive, the gearbox changed superbly where the 1.6 seemed a little clunky and the noise in the cabin was way higher. Just awaiting the call from the dealer to go and pick it up so can't wait to play! 馃憤

Welcome. I tested both 1.6 diesel and 1.8 petrol as well, and ended up with the 1.8. I'm happy, I'm sure you will be too !

Thanks I'm sure I will! I don't do high mileage, so with a more compliant drive and way less noise (with 16's on the diesel you would have thought the opposite) I'll take that over an extra 15mpg which will be offset with lower fuel cost.
