Looks interesting do they have Activa bits, I ask because I could not see it listed.

Also look at the sarcastic comment under one of the cars on their Xantia index.

I haven't been very impressed by their attitude (or logic) in dealing with
them through ebay so I would personally avoid them...

It says at the bottom of that web page.

So what's with the comment, does the web designer have one, and sneaked the comment in for a laugh!

** It should have next to the above all comments are for fun, and seeing if the boss at that company can spot it! :wink:

Are they saying the SD is slower than the NA? I haven't driven either so I don't know but would assume not!

The SD is\was the replacement for the NA to meet tougher emission laws, its a lower pressure version of the TD, I've heard the SD was slower than the N/A, no idea if its true; according to glass's guide the SD and the N/A are both 71bhp, guess there would not be much between them.

The old joke:

SD = "Slow Diesel"

It's very likely it will be slower than the NA using a low pressure turbo as it mucks up Volumetric Efficiency a bit and is neither one thing nor the other really.
