1.3 75bhp or 90bhp with dualogic?

I'm looking for your thoughts on which of these engines goes best with the dualogic. This is because Ive heard as of Feb you will only be able to get the 75bhp. So is it worth placing an order now and getting the current dynamic spec with a 90bhp engine or wait and see whats on the new spec but have to have a 75bhp engine????? Discuss!

The 75bhp is no where near as meaty as the 90bhp and not as economical either . However there is no Turbo Lag where there is on the 90bhp (personally it didn't bother me) but some forum member hate it but apparently there is going to be an ECU update to help with that.

the 1.3 90 is a really good engine on boost as I have said many times and maybe a "auto" would be more of forgiving of the turbo lag.

I would always rather have an extra 15bhp under the pedal when it comes too it rather than a different trim level
