I was told by a dealer that you can't get either the diesel or the EX spec in Ireland.....not sure if that's totaly true but I haven't seen any over here yet. The dealers made a bit of a mistake too when the car was launched here in November 2005. There were given a list of the available specs and models and asked to place their orders. They thought that the 1,4 litre models would be the ones in demand and hardley ordered any 1.8s. By the time they realised they'd underestimated the demand for the 1.8s it was too late to change.
