At the min I have a 1.2gp 8v but I am considering upgrading to the 1.4 t-jet?! I was wondering if anyone could leave me there personal review on the car if they own one!? And also is the t-jet a turbo? Thanks very much in advance!!

Re: Upgrade 1.4 t-jet

Thank you I was wondering if it was or not as not alot of places say or not and I know it's a big step up but need somthing that will cope with miles abit more due to have to travel to work every so often to Scotland and also planning a road trip though europe next year! Glad it's a turbo tbh due to the tuning side of things!! =P

It drinks, lots. And for any decent tuning you need to upgrade the turbo on it.

Re: Upgrade 1.4 t-jet

Dont jump me TJetters but....

The OP is a high miles driver, MJet may be better for him for economy.

Now I know he didnt ask.....but 50+ Mpg on the Motorway has simply GOT to appeal

Re: Upgrade 1.4 t-jet

If he wants more than 250miles to a tank then he should buy an alternative engine.

This is incorrect. My T-Jet is superb on fuel compared to to what i was driving before.

Lowest ive ever managed to get (booting it ALL the time - nice stretch of 30 miles of b/a roads to and from work) i managed to get 320 miles from a tank of normal unleaded.

Using Vpower, i manage to get 420 - 470 miles out of a tank. - driving normally, not like a granny :P

Standard T-Jet. 3 Months odd old.

Yes, its turbo'd, i prefered it to the M-Jet (i just personally prefer to rev a car, tbh, i find the limiter at 6,500 a little rubbish, but hey ho).

Build quaility seems ok, a few little niggles ive got to have sorted / had sorted.

Seat was clicking when anyone sat on it - sorted, something to do with the cushion.
Fog lights steaming up - booked in for replacements.
Breaks are squeeling there tits off after 5,000 miles. - booked in to be looked at.
Blue&me mic is low - booked in for replacement.
Rattle coming from the back - booked in to be looked at.

Hope this helps!!
