cycling a new tank using established one?

I've got a 40litre tank which has been up and running well for a while and just bought a 160litre. I'm wondering about the best way to get the cycle going in the new tank, is it best to do a new fishless cycle or can I use some of the substrate and filter media from the old tank to get it going, or would a combination of the two be best?
