    Hello;

    Wow!!! Looks like I really screwed up. Thursday I ordered the XUV 825I. Pretty well decked out.
    Seems like I should have chosen the diesel. Oh dear. Oh dear. Poor poor pitiful me.

    Shartthrow50: which model did you drive? I have a demo Gator right now at home and noticed the lack of legroom too, until I realized the seats were adjustable. I pulled four screws each and got three extra inches on the drivers side and almost five on the passengers side. This is a XUV 825i, 2012 model.

    Hello;
    We took deliveery on our XUV825i gas. My concern over not getting the diesel was for naught. This unit is much better then great. Have talked to some diesel owners Every one but the farmers dissslike them because of the noise. The EFI on the 825 really puts a lot of giddy up in the go. Top end is pleanty when whizzing past trees and dodging holes in the gravel shoulders and roads.
