Considering emissions and fuel economy are apparently identical, what physical changes have been made to the 180 bhp engine to justify the extra cost?

Is it not just an ECU tuning thing?

Yeah, buy a 150ps and get a bluefin remap, you'll get more torque as well...

I'd be very surprised if the economy/emissions were really identical. If you actually use that extra 30BHP there's bound to be a penalty, the energy has to come from somewhere. My guess is the usual creative mapping to fool the EU emissons cycle, so that the official emissions and economy bear even less relation to the real-world ones than usual. After all, there's nowhere in the official city/motorway/mixed cycles where you'll be using even 100bhp, let alone 180!

200 with a bluefin and it is removable with a cost of £332. Does this engine come with the two exhaust outlets in the rear valence or is it only the 180 that comes with it?

It's only the 180 that has the twin rear exit stainless pipes. I'm trying to find out if it's possible to fit a 180 backbox to a 150 and if so the part numbers required but info is sparse.

The 150 has the two exhausts at the rear but they just point to the floor . So I would think it wouldn't take much to add these ss ends plus a different skirt
