Ok so it's getting close to buying time and I'm finding it very difficult to decide between these 2 engines. I know that a test drive is my best bet and this is something I plan on doing, but even this won't give me the complete picture as I will be taking either car to stage 2 as soon as I buy it. One thing that's pulling me towards the diesel is the fact that they have a more definitive limit to there potential without getting silly expensive and I should be content with an exhaust/remap, whereas the k04/BT kits will always be calling me with the 2.0t. On the other hand the lighter nose of the petrol sound like a more fun drive, I'm just not sure I'll be satisfied with the power? Can anyone help?!
