I've got the 163ps engine (it's only 160bhp but the ps figure is higher so it sounds better) and I find it's got plenty of power. In fact it's quite easy to spin the wheels or get axle tramp if I pull away too fast at junctions or roundabouts etc. So I was wondering if you get a 2 wheel drive Antarawith the 184ps engine. Does anybody know or have one and if so, what it's like? I'd imagine the 4 wheel drive must be a lot better distributing the power with the 184 engine.

I have a 2013 163 4x4 but for the last 5 years have had a Bluefin remap on it (210bhp).
You just don't realise how utterly terrible your standard 163 is until you drive a remapped version! There are zero negatives, the car is so much better in every respect- power, drive, torque, economy, the whole driving experience is enhanced.
