    The drive for the nav disc behind the screen will play CDs but you obviously have to remove the nav disc to do it. Only other way is to get an external changer but I didn't bother with this as I don't see the need to use CDs any more :)

    is there much difference between the 140 and 170 diesel in terms of performance?

    A surprising amount of difference actually, more than a mere 30bhp would suggest (it also has 22lbft more torque). The main advantage is that it revs much more freely. Whereas the 140 is getting a bit breathless around 4k rpm, the 170 will happily pull through 4.5k and on towards 5 (redline still at 4.5). It's also a fair bit quieter.

    What's it like at the low end ?
    Does it still have the 'cliff face' in the torque curve at 2000 rpm like the 140 ?

    Much the same yet, not much shove below about 1800rpm and then it's off like a scalded cat :)
    Heh, need to get some snaps of this one on the 'ring to replace the avatar with. I do actually have a pic of my name spraypainted on the track but it doesn't work when shrunk to avatar-size:
