iv heard you can get more mpg and you also get a little more speed not as tho im bothered about the speed side of it just more miles per gallon.

Be better if you got rid of the FAP its twice the size of the CAT
and the fap restricts flow through the exhaust more than the cat.................also the cat reduces the emissions which could be an issue at MOT time

So unless you are a company car driver, the FAP fitted models offer no benefit... never realised they offered a choice.

Yeah, the X-Line was aimed at private buyers where the different taxation rules apply, so the X-Lines got no FAP, but extra kit instead - reverse sensors, CD changer, alarm, a few other bits. In trim terms they're pretty much an SE Lux without half leather.

Very nice motors indeedy.

Thanks trem 1, thats been very helpful. I think its either picture 2 or picture 3 but im certainly looking into having the fap removed and leaving the cats on just in case it does breech the emisions law, thanks again mate tim.

Hi mate, much as I commend you for having searched and found an existing post, this one is 7 years old, so probably better you find a more recent one or start a fresh thread!
