    Take a look in the boot in the spare wheel well,there will be a sticker in there with loads of codes on and a KW rating this will tell you the BHP of the car

    The same sticker should also be in either your service or handbook.

    I'm pleased to hear that you have the 143. I also have a 143 Avant. I had a 120 on demo for a week. Far too slow in pulling away. Also tried the 170 but the difference between it and the 143 was hardly noticeable IMO and I thought it was not worth the extra cost. Enjoy!

    Thanks , i had a b7 170 which i really liked prior to the softwear change , but thought it was just a bit too thirsty , the new common rail engine is so quiet really well pleased with it.
