My Zed history is all 3.0l six, E85 , E89 now E89 35is. and I think it has been progression all the way.
I had every opportunity at the last change (sept '16) but couldnt find a reason on paper to go to a 2.0l four derivative and I didn't know anybody with a car to try - it's not the same as a dealer test drive is it ?
I'd let you try my car Ron :thumbsup:

A kind offer but I don't think I will be changing it now.

So I bought a 35is with all the toys to play with. :thumbsup:

Or is it a high days car that the fun factor is more important. My E85 3.0 will return low 40mpg on a run and i'm sure the larger engined E89 can sup fuel too. Your choiceI, but I know what I would go for :thumbsup:

Spot on, weekend toy = 3ltr, no brainer

Previous 3.0l would do. over 40 pottering through the Low Countries - I will see how the 35is compares in August .
