I've got an MG ZT CDTi + 135 Automatic and it is the best car I've owned. I've had it for 2 years now, and usually get fed up and bored around the 6 months mark, so I normally change my cars regularly.
That's what I'm hoping it will do for me. I've got a Mitsubishi Carisma GDi Elegance, it's pretty good on fuel (38mpg) and got all the toys such as cruise, electrics but, it's just an average car. And i've had it 8 months. The ZT seems a really good choice, especially the diesel.
Not wanting to disrespect your current car, you would be going from a competent comfortable car to a car that really makes you feel special. The car seems to beg you to look back as it, as you walk away. It really is a special car.
Yes I did, it was just that the car that I bought fell into my lap. I had a budget of £13k, and the car was up for £15,995. With a bit of negotiation, I got them down to £12,500. That was a month before MG Rover went bump
I had a 75 Tourer CDT which had the lower powered engine and I found it to be perfectly good, and quick for what I needed. Although it was transformed with a tuning box fitted
The only difference between the 116 and the 131 is the ECU mapping anyway, so its only going to cost the price of a remap to make a 116 a 131.
The downside to this is of course that there is no way that anyone can tell its been remapped. This means you will have to let your insurance know yourself as they would not be able to tell otherwise....

you will get a lot of advice from this sight, and i am sure you will which ever one you choose you will not be disapointed, you get a lot of car for your money, i went for the Petrol zt 190+.
Like Ian said a zt is special , and yes you do find yourself looking back and admiring your car.you also can keep up with those BMW cars that think they are so special, and own the road. but watch your speed, too many unmarked police cars these days, normally BMW, also X TYPE JAGS.
