Hi All
am about to start looking at T4 to buy. I will be using it for both business and pleasure which may include towing a reasonably sized boat. Consequently, I have been looking at the 2.5TDI but am curious about the difference in the blue and the standard TDI. Is there significantly less power or is it a sensible option?
cheers for your thoughts in advance.

standard tdi with blue I is 88bhp, the tdi with silver tdi is 102bhp, the german spec t4s with a red I is 151bhp,,,,,,, its not really hard to take an 88bhp up to around 150bhp with new injectors an intercooler and a good remap,,, just a remap will see about 130bhp.....
to be honest there all good at towing,, that might be why the AA used so many,, the EX AA vans will all be 102bhp

102 has a gearbox difference to the 88 too.
prob better for towing.the £ involved in upping the power etc would be better spent on a 102imho.
as chezzy says.loads of info if u search
