Hi evrebody. I just placed an order for a 1.8, but i had not the chance to test it. I drove the 3.0 (excellent) and the 2.7, which was not so impressive. finally i decided to go blind for the 1.8, trusting the dealer..and saving around 10.000 euro.
I would like to know from someone who is already driving it how it goes, if it is fast enough, progression, fuel consumption, and every other details concerning this engine.. I hope i made the right choice.

thanks!

Hi Biker, welcome to the forum, im new here myself and waiting delivery of a 1.8T in May, fingers crossed.
I cant obviously be of any help re: fuel consumption etc but i did find the engine pretty brisk, very smooth and quiet. It was the dealers own car so i couldnt really push it but it felt very nice.
Ive a Discovery 3 at the moment and im putting €90 a week into it in diesel so im hoping ill get more mpg from the 1.8.

Hi i took delivery off mine last week. Its a very smooth cruiser, a very refined "big car" feel to it and VERY quiet. On the motorway i average around 39 mpg and around town i get near the 30mpg mark which isnt bad.

I test drove the 3.0 tdi and trust me I was worried having not driven the 1.8 and having bought "blind" but believe me you will not be dissapointed- don't expect it to be super quick but expect it to be smooth and what i consider to be fast enough. Its a great motorway car, effortlesy overtaking.
