Really depends on how many miles you drive, as 150 tdi has a dpf which don't like short journeys

I had the the FR 1.4 ACT for 2 months now, couldn't be happier. I main do low milage commutes and the car is showing just over 42mpg. It's very quiet and smooth to drive.

It's a punchy little engine when needed and warms up very quickly, which is nice during this cold weather.

I love my 150 tdi, but I did come from a megane estate 1.5 dci. the FR has plenty of power, great fuel efficiency and cheap company car allowance. I will go for the 184 next mind - more power = more fun!

I got out of my fn2 civic type r and test drove the 150tdi. Yes it's not as quick but done my job. Plus looking forward to more than 29/30mpg for a while lol

I really like the 184, it's got great performance and economy, but I do worry about the DPF as I do mainly short jouneys.
So occasionally I have to take it out for a 30 minute blast in lower gears to make sure it's cleared out!
had I known about this, and had the 150ACt option.......might have gone for that instead.
