    1.4 TFSi...bad idea?

    Just curious really (not pondering a near-future addition, honest) but does anybody have experience of the 1.4 in the 8P? I know it's only 120-odd bhp, but it doesn't have to be fast. Quiet and economical round town will do, as long as it's got enough poke to get out of its own way (which is...

    :blink: I have parking sensors on the back. I've never had them before so still look behind me when parking. They work fine and I almost trusted them. Last night I went out to collect our pizzas, was parking the car quickly and DIDN'T look behind me as I heard no parking bleep...and clattered...
