    EXSKIN, how have you found the change over? I'm worried with going for a 318D or 118D I will miss the power that the fabia has got


    Hi fabiavrs
    Yep the power i miss she'll do the speed i want but at her terms not mine
    but on the other hand i seem to let the world go by now.
    She seems to have a calming infulence on my driving style
    where the FR was aaaaargh get out of the way drive like a t*t style
    and of course it attracted every other t*t to a t*t.
    So when i added the for and against up,
    Reasons for 318d
    always loved the e90 shape
    mpg for my work run
    wife loves it
    bit of lux.
    against 318d
    boot,do a lot of fishing but can be cured a tourer next time

    For keeping the FR
    hatch back
    power
    Against the FR
    spinal injuries (suspension)
    the dreaded DPF fault limp mode dash lit up like a xmas tree
    mpg
    run in with a unmarked
    climate control
    plastic cheap interior
    the wife hated it.
    So the decision was easy.

    I would definately say hold out for a 3 series fella, far superior car to a 1 series. (Imo, i think the 1 series is amongst the most pointless and ridiculous cars about and anyone would have to be a mental patient to buy one).

    This is what I've been thinking, if I go for the 1 series that I will feel like I should have alway gone for the 3 series.

    EXSKIN, thanks for that. .
