Hi all,


Starting a new job soon which will hopefully allow me to get the car I've got my eye on. A nice Pro_Ceed 1.6CRDi in Arctic White.
Just wondering if anyone else has the 1.6 Diesel, and if there were any things I should know about the Pro_Ceed range etc?



Cheers all,



Will hopefully have the car before too long!

Dont know if this helps.

Just collected pro_ceed2 diesel (1st Sept)

Things I considered were total running costs (near retirement! :) ).

Considered the 3, until I found out about the 2 being £35/year road tax.

Did a test run of the 89BHP up a long motorway hill with bends as I was worried about it running out of steam. Never had a diesel before and was running a 1.8 petrol Almera. I was doing 70 all of the way up it andat the top of the hill it straightens out... put my foot down and it accelerated... thought this will do me!

Not only that, the 3 has larger diameter extra low profile tyres that are about another £40 each to replace. To me, nice but not worth it.

So far, very nice car to drive.(Diesel convert :) )
