You probably know but the insurance on "car derived vans" is more then just a car, you have to insure them on a business type of insurance policy.

It will be used for business sunz, so that isnt an issue.

Is the 1.7di nippy mate? what bhp are they standard? Can you get tuning boxes for them?

Di would be turbo but no intercooler, dti is turbo and intercooler.

Motors should go on and on.

CDTI is 1.3 and about 75bhp, so a bit more grunt but a more fragile engine.

13.6 0-60

They don't seem great, for example my Megane 1.9 Diesel has 300NM of torque and the 1.7 Di has 130NM, thought maybe they wouldn't be too bad as it's a diesel and has torque but that doesn't seem a lot at all, seems pretty low for bhp and torque. Must do amazing MPG !
