200bhp 2.2 X-Sport ?

Although my Business Edition seems better equipped.

And they cost their weight in Gold it seems.

Obviously a 2.2 (200ps) Titanium X Sport ;).
Personally, I like the look with the body kit, twin exhaust tail pipes (single on the 2.0),19" wheels and Bi-Xenon headlamps.
The upper and lower grilles are gloss black (hard to tell on my black car, but look at other colours and you'll see), rear bumper diffuser is gloss black too, be prepared for the cost of 19" tyres though (using Michelin PS4S's). The interior is pretty nice too. Front and rear parking sensors are standard. 2012 onward cars have the 'black eye' headlight units which look nice.

My car has options fitted like tinted rear windows, sat nav with reversing camera and memory drivers seat with auto dip wing mirrors when reversing, and full electric passenger seat.

If i could find a 2.2 200bhp X-Sport Estate for half their asking price I would be first in line. :)

Nephew bought the X-Sport but without the NAV etc. I like the MCA Nav unit.

Lots of £££ for small changes it seems. Am i missing something for the high asking prices?

They do seem to be holding their prices, especially the estates.

At the time when I bought mine, the % difference in price probably wasn't that much as the cars I was looking at were 2-2 1/2 years old (bought in December2013 and wanted a facelift) . The Business Editions were new out at this time so I was comparing with the Titanium X models, but I knew I wanted a Titanium X Sport.

Auto dip mirrors, damn I want one now :) Although 19" tyre prices may persuade me against one.

My old Rover 800 had dip on reverse, cannot understand why they dont fit it to more cars.
