    Hi, i am driving one of these as a courtesy-car from the dealer while they are taking care of the boostproblem on my VXR... (this is the exact one, the front picture of this pricelist is my courtesy car...doesn't look half bad! http://www.steinmetz.de/downloads/20...tz_aktuell.pdf )

    Sorry to put a fly in the ointment, but, about these things you are wondering about: it will be pretty, that's for sure... however, fast is another matter! it's no slouch, but it's a cruiser and a relaxed cruiser... and as long as you stay away from the "sport" button, it is nowhere near fast... with the sport button on it's reasonably quick, but without some tuning, the 160 horses have a tough job pulling the heavy insignia along. Needless to say it can't hold a candle to the VXR...

    Oh, and when you use the sport button, and drive accordingly... it drinks a lot more than in "touring" !!!

    I had a CDTi SRi as a hire car last week and it didn't have a sport button. In fact, it didn't have much.

    Scussi...that should have said, they all have them...if they have the electronic damping system on them...I completely forgot that there are cars out there without that... (correct this time?)

    As long as the car has the Flexride option or 4X4 drive then the Sport or Tour buttons will be there! Also don't forget the added red dials on pressing the sport button!
